More Employment Help Online

A new online service will help match people looking for work in Bass Coast to employers trying to fill vacancies in their businesses.

Bass Coast Shire Council’s Economic Development team has developed the new employment portal to help the local job market.

Community and Economic Development Director, Steven Piasente, said the team was excited about the opportunities the new portal offered job seekers and the business community.

“The Economic Development Team consulted with businesses and job seekers and identified that an online facility would be really beneficial to the local community,” said Mr Piasente.

“You can access the portal through our Business in Bass Coast website.  Our team is excited about the opportunities the service provides for those looking for work as well as employers seeking to fill vacancies.”

Job seekers can log on and register all their details as well as their preferred work categories and locations.  Employers looking for staff in matching categories will be notified of the registration via an automated email.  Likewise, if a business looking for staff registers the details of a position, anyone registered who is looking for work in that category will receive an email notification.

“This is a great new addition to Council’s business website that will provide real benefit to employers and job seekers,” said Mr Piasente.

Supporting information is available on the Business in Bass Coast website including links to information on how to prepare for a new job, such as resumes and personal presentation.

Employers and job seekers can register at http://business.basscoast.vic.gov.au and click on Job Opportunities.
