Lismore mayor Jenny Dowell is urging northern rivers job seekers to take advantage of the Telstra Lismore Jobs Market this Friday, October 19 where there will be more than 200 jobs listed.

The Jobs Market was set up to try to find employment for the 116 staff affected by the closure of Telstra’s Goonellabah Call Centre, but the day will be open to all job seekers from 11.30am.

Employers can still register for a free exhibition.

Mayor Dowell said the announcement the call centre would close on October 23 came as a shock to many. However, she said the Jobs Market presented a valuable chance for workers to meet prospective employers.

‘We have a really dedicated, skilled workforce of local people and the priority is to find jobs for them,’ Mayor Dowell said.

‘This could be a lifeline for affected staff and we strongly urge people to attend and get the most from this opportunity.’

The Jobs Market allows employers to hand out information about their businesses, collect résumés, and potentially shortlist candidates to interview. Employers who cannot attend the Jobs Market can still post details of vacancies on the Telstra Lismore Jobs Board.

To register as an exhibitor at the Telstra Lismore Jobs Market, employers should phone 6686 3972 or visit www.telstralismorejobsmarket.com.au.

The Telstra Lismore Jobs Market is on Friday, October 19 at the Goonellabah Sports and Aquatic Centre and is open to all job seekers from 11.30am to 2pm. Entry is free.
