City on verge of employment boom

GLADSTONE is on the verge of an employment boom where workers from all over the country, and the world, will be coming to our fair city to find work.

Gladstone Engineering Alliance CEO Karen Porter said over the next two to five years Gladstone's biggest growth demand will come from the construction of LNG plants.

“Such a high demand for skilled workers will result in shortages of people to meet the needs of proposed and existing industry particularly in the areas of electrical and instrumentation, pipe fitters, specialist class welders, drillers, riggers, scaffolders, civil operators, carpenters, and labourers.”

To make the job of finding a job easier, The Observer with Fairfax Media's MyCareer.com.au, brings much more to job seekers than traditional online job boards.

Queenslanders can now access more job opportunities in their region than ever before, with over 60 publications now available to view on mycareer.com.au.
