Central Desert Regional Council (CDRC) had a stall with a team presenting job seekers with job vacancy packs, taking them through Council’s Recruitment process and explaining Council’s work at the Alice Springs Jobs Fair, held on 16 November 2021 in Alice Springs.
The Job Fair was an event organised by Federal Government’s Department of Education, Skills and Employment, and was held at the Alice Springs Convention Centre. The objective of the exhibition was to provide an opportunity for job seekers in the Alice Springs and surrounding regions to connect directly with employers and obtain information on job opportunities within their organisations.
At the event, Council had 16 vacancies posted on the ‘Job Vacancies Board’ and the team also networked with other exhibitors, promoting the Council brand and exploring opportunities for Council.
From the continuous flow of traffic to the popular booth, ten job seekers’ CVs were collected. Seven networking sessions were held with other exhibitors, and details and contacts collected were forwarded to People and Culture for respective managers to follow up.
“Overall, it was a successful and well-organised day. It was encouraging to engage with students from local high schools providing information on Council’s formal career planning process and explaining Council’s work in the remote Central Desert region,” said Jacob Khumalo, General Manager – Commercial at CDRC.
