A wealth of information for job seekers and students will be on offer at the Rockingham Jobs Fair on Wednesday, June 12.

The region's largest job fair, hosted by the City of Rockingham and the Rockingham-Kwinana Chamber of Commerce (RKCC), will be held from 10am-4pm at the Gary Holland Community Centre.

Entry is free to the event which this year will showcase careers in defence and defence-related industries.

There will also be a focus on equipping the local workforce through training and apprenticeships.

“With the AUKUS submarine program heavily influencing future industry growth in Rockingham, the Rockingham Jobs Fair is a chance to find out how you can be involved in the thousands of employment opportunities that will be created,” City of Rockingham Mayor Deb Hamblin said.

“Come along and explore some exciting career opportunities in industries such as Defence, construction, aged care and public administration.”

There will be stalls from a range of key corporate organisations, government agencies, not-for-profits and training providers as well the chance to try a trade or attend a series of panel sessions throughout the day.

RKCC CEO Tony Solin said he was excited to again collaborate with the City of Rockingham to build another successful edition of the annual Rockingham Jobs Fair. 

“This year’s event represents not only a fantastic platform for our jobseekers and students to explore exciting local career development pathways and rewarding apprenticeship opportunities, it is also a testament to the City’s commitment to fostering a skilled and dynamic workforce for our businesses and industries in Rockingham," Mr Solin said.
