Forest Lake Shopping Centre will launch its first Jobs Fair next week, a new initiative offering prospective candidates the opportunity to access local and regional jobs, to support local employment in the lead-up to Christmas.

The centre will host the Jobs Fair recruitment drive from Wednesday 17 August – Saturday 20 August, providing local job seekers access to genuine employment opportunities across full-time, part-time and casual roles.

Applicants can explore roles within the Forest Lake Shopping Centre and the local area, including national fashion and lifestyle brands through to local food and beverage vendors.

Key retailers including Nando’s, Ally Fashion, Lowes, Lovisa and more will be among those looking for staff at the major recruitment events from Wednesday 17 August – Saturday 20 August.

In partnership with Busy at Work and I Care Support Services, the Jobs Fair will connect local people with a range of prospective jobs and provide access to a suite of virtual and on-site recruitment support services. 

Services will include professional headshots, workplace training certification consultations and jobs advocate support services.
