The Isaac Job Fair, held on 28 April 2021, is an indoor whole-day community employment expo providing an opportunity for all jobseekers in the Isaac region to connect with employers, information and points of supports to assist them in gaining employment. In attendance will be major national and local employers including BHP, disability employment providers, mental health services, training providers and lots more.

Organised by Feros Care with support from Isaac Regional Council, the Isaac Job Fair comes as a result of a community forum held in 2020 which identified common service-gaps in building sustainable and inclusive employment in our region.

“The decentralisation of services and accessible support has made it difficult for those seeking employment, especially those with a disability, to navigate what options are available to them in seeking and maintaining employment,” explains Di Chataway, Feros Care Community Development Coordinator and driving force behind the event. “The Isaac Job Fair will be a watershed moment in presenting all the services being delivered to the area in one place, enabling those in need of services, exposure to all opportunities available to them."

A focus on inclusivity will ensure attendees of all abilities can participate, gather information and be connected to accessible services in order to receive support, demonstrating to jobseekers and the wider community that the Isaac Region embraces an inclusive and diverse community and workforce. Major companies and local businesses interested in engaging jobseekers who may need support on the job, can receive information on what services will provide sustainable employment, thereby creating an inclusive workforce.
