March 08, 2013

Chris Hayes MP, Federal Member for Fowler, declared the Liverpool Jobs and Skills expo a great success.

"I am proud to announce that more than 370 local job seekers have linked up to a job thanks to the Australian Government Jobs and Skills Expo held in Liverpool last Thursday".

"This is a great outcome for many individuals, families and the local community", Mr Hayes said.

More than 5 000 people came through the doors of the Whitlam Leisure centre where over 1020 full-time and part-time job opportunities were on offer.

The 88 exhibitors took 1562 resumes and will be conducting interviews with job seekers in the near future, providing even more jobs to the people of western and south – western Sydney.

"The highly successful outcome from the Expo is a testament to our local community who rallied behind the event and took advantage of the opportunities available, Mr Hayes added", Mr Hayes added.

The Prime Minister attended the expo where she was greeted by a number of enthusiastic job seekers and exhibitioners.

Since October 2009, 72 Expos have been held across the country linking more than 26,000 people up to a job or training opportunity as part of the Gillard Labor Government’s $3 billion Building Australia’s Future Workforce package.
