2017 Careers Expo showcases job opportunities

Held since 2009, the Gympie Regional Careers Expo returns for another year to showcase education, training and employment opportunities in the Wide Bay Region.

The free event will be held on 25 May from 10am-2pm at The Pavilion and will feature over 50 displays representing education, trade, government and the private sector.

The Gympie Regional Council’s Mayor Mick Curran said “this expo has been the leading platform for organisations to present career pathways and further education opportunities not only to school students and their parents, but also to members of the community who wish to increase their skills or employment prospects.”

“We are delighted to host this event and it demonstrates Council’s commitment to nurturing a region of opportunity and growth for current and future generations,” he said.

With continued support from local business, industry, university, TAFE, training and employment service providers, the Gympie Regional Careers Expo 2017 promises to be the best one yet.

To register as a sponsor, exhibitor or school, or if you would like to know more, visit or contact Council’s Community Development Team directly on 1300 307 800.

It’s a busy time for Council with a variety of free community events across our region. 
This weekend, residents can dispose of hazardous household waste which cannot be disposed of at the Waste Management Facilities for free at Nelson Park Reserve between 9am-12pm on Saturday. 
In the Goomeri community, we’ll be hosting a ‘Have Your Say’ forum at the Goomeri Golf Club next Wednesday, asking residents how we can best support with community services and facilities. This follows on from a successful community night in Kilkivan. 

We are also hosting a number of free family-friendly community events as we head into the festive season. 
There are two Mary Street Christmas events planned for the 13th and 20th of December, and Christmas in the Park on December 16. 
We’re also busy planning the New Year’s Eve event to be held in the Gympie Town Centre and will be announcing more details soon. 
We’ll keep everyone updated with details on our website and Facebook page – hope to see you there.
