RESQ make job seeking simpler in the Outback

AS PEOPLE across the country struggle with job security, RAPAD Employment Services Queensland (RESQ) has launched Outback Queensland Jobs, an online jobs board in order to make employment for both job seekers and businesses easier.

RESQ’s Outback Queensland Jobs Board was first discussed in early April, with development beginning four weeks prior to its launch on Monday, May 25.

The online jobs board allows employers to post advertisements for employment opportunities, while jobseekers can search for jobs regionally or nationwide. Jobseekers are also able to upload their resume and customise their profile in order to grab the attention of businesses.

RESQ CEO, Chris Hamilton, believes the online service is easily-accessible and convenient for employers and job seekers as both continue to suffer due to Covid-19.

“As we come out of Covid-19 shutdown, employers are looking to get staff back on board, so they need to easily let people know,” Mr Hamilton said. “The online format is quick, easily interactive, and employers and job seekers can set alerts, emails, and so many other functionalities.

“Those outside the region can apply for jobs, bringing new talent into the community, and if people want to leave the region, they can apply for those jobs as well. We are developing broadened awareness for regional and nationwide jobs by creating a two-way flow of employment opportunities,” Mr Hamilton continued.

“Get on, have a look, and use it. The more registries there are, the more powerful and useful it will be.”
