Employment opportunities at your fingertips

Published: 15 Jun 2020

Mackay Region Joblink currently has more than 1200 local jobs on offer.

This local platform offers a free service for job seekers looking for their next career and for employers in the region to advertise their vacant jobs.

Mayor Greg Williamson said it was a great initiative for job seekers and businesses to be a part of, especially considering the impacts of COVID-19 on many industries.

“Mackay has a population of more than 117,000 people, and the community are feeling the effects of COVID-19,” Cr Williamson said.

“In a recent survey conducted by council, 12 per cent of the local workforce said they had lost their job due to COVID-19,” he said.

“A further 28 per cent of people said they have had their hours and/or income reduced.

“In the wake of those kinds of impacts, it’s great to see there are more than 1200 jobs on offer right now – it means people in our community have options and that’s great to see.

“Mackay Region Joblink is a fantastic one-stop-shop for local jobs across a variety of industries including trades, healthcare, agriculture, government and so many other industries.

“Whether you’re looking for a job or the next step in your career, there is something for you in the Mackay region.”

There is a wealth of opportunity and benefits available on Mackay Region Joblink, including competitive wages, training and education opportunities and local employment trends.

Signing up is free for both job seekers and job advertisers and the website is updated daily to provide access to the latest jobs in the Mackay region.
