MANDURAH Forum worked with retailers to host its third Jobs Fair, creating even more employment opportunities for the community.
On completion, the Forum is expected to have created a minimum 700 jobs in retail, hospitality and service.
With about 160 jobs available across 22 businesses, of which around 100 are in the food and beverage industry, more than 1500 meet and greets took place between enthusiastic job seekers and retailers at this week’s Jobs Fair.
Forum manager Jacqueline McKenzie said she was impressed by the level of preparation job seekers undertook before meeting their retailers of choice.
“I was thrilled to see the job seekers treating the Jobs Fair like an interview by coming prepared with their resumes, researching the skills and experience required and having questions ready for the retailers,’’ she said.
“I am excited to welcome a diverse range of people and skills to the team of retailers in the coming months as we approach the grand opening.”
Full time, part time and casual opportunities in hospitality, fashion, services and general retail roles were available at the fair.
More than 600 meet and greets took place in the Fashion, Services and General Retail area in which retailers include Forever New, Universal Store and Skechers.
Ribs and Burgers, Zambrero and Wild Sea Australian Seafood shared in about 100 jobs available in the food and beverage area, which saw more than 650, meet and greets.
