IN PICTURES: Breaking job barriers for all at Albany employment fair
More than 100 job opportunities were up for grabs at a job fair at Albany Entertainment Centre on Wednesday, aiming to connect people with a disability or barrier to employment with employers in the region.
Hosted by atWork Australia, the event was the first in a series of fairs set to pop up across WA to connect people with disability or barriers to employment with new training opportunities.
AWA State manager Claire Kavanagh said the fair aimed to help employers and people with disabilities discover what was available across the region.
“Giving someone with a barrier or disability a job can realistically change their life,” she said.
“It is all about putting the right person into the right job.
“There is a job out there for everybody.
“It is just about finding what job is right for you.
“Our main focus is on ability and not disability.”
AtWork Australia has offices in Albany, Katanning, Denmark and Mt Barker.
