On the 25th February, a local Perth community hall was transformed into a buzzing Jobs Fair! atWork Australia’s Gosnell office held their very first Jobs Fair,  a free one-day event for people living with disability, illness, injury or mental health condition who are looking for work, and employers looking for great talent.

The WA Disability Employment Services team commenced the Jobs Fair series as a way of supporting all DES clients to become job-ready and help motivate them on their journey to employment.

David Goode, the Mayor of Gosnells was in attendance to officially open the event and speak about employment opportunities in the Gosnells community.

Mardi, an atWork Australia Disability Employment Services Job Coach, one of the main organisers of the Job Fair said, “It was a fantastic day for all stallholders and clients to meet and greet in preparation for progress towards employment.”
