This week saw PeoplePlus and Youth Employment Partnership (YEP) kick-off their inaugural Jobs Fair in Sydney.

Hosting over 200 clients, the Fair was established to connect job seekers with local employers and to open doors to new career opportunities and educational pathways.

Numerous employers and RTOs attended the Fair including Pieroth Wines, Hammond Care, Pivotal Recruitment, Annecto Aged Care, Australian Retail Association, Bankstown TAFE, and the Accommodation Association of Australia.

The PeoplePlus recruitment team reported that one job seeker secured employment with Pieroth Wines on the day, and is expected to start in January 2017.

Additionally, Annecto Aged Care booked eight interviews with PeoplePlus clients, while Hammond Care will also be interviewing several PeoplePlus clients next week.

A free sausage sizzle lunch wrapped up the successful day, which will become a staple figure on the PeoplePlus events calendar in 2017.
