Deadly Jobs Expo brings Aboriginal employment opportunities to Perth’s largest NAIDOC Week event

Jobs and Skills WA – Aboriginal Services, in conjunction with the Town of Bassendean and Derbarl Yerrigan Health Service, were delighted to bring together 40+ employers to their annual Deadly Jobs Expo.

Held on Thursday 12 July 2019 at Ashfield Reserve, the Deadly Jobs Expo took place as part of the Town of Bassendean’s NAIDOC Family Day, which is Perth’s largest NAIDOC Week event. It provides a unique opportunity for employers to engage with over 4000 local Aboriginal people who attend this event each year.

Western Australian employers from an array of different industries showcased various metropolitan based, FIFO and regional employment opportunities to Aboriginal people attending this year’s Deadly Jobs Expo. Jobs and Skills WA – Aboriginal Services representatives were also on-hand to provide visitors to the expo with valuable training and career advice and information.

“Deadly Jobs is always a great day, a fantastic event to see two very important clients come together. There is always a great mix of employers offering a range of opportunities to the Aboriginal community of Perth” – Nate Stuart, Senior Client Engagement Officer – Jobs & Skills WA – Aboriginal Services.

The focus of the expo is on ‘real jobs’ and we encourage all of our employers who can offer current and projected opportunities to Aboriginal people to take part in the annual expo in future years. Participation in the expo is at no cost to our employers.
