UP TO 1,200 jobs in Australia were on offer at an expo in Dublin at the weekend.
The Australia Employment Expo 2011 at the Aviva Stadium featured 18 employers seeking to fill posts as soon as possible in fields such as engineering, nursing and construction.
Diesel fitters were particularly in demand, with one company, Dublin-based Osborne Recruitment, offering 100 such positions.
Western Australia will need 150,000 people to fill posts that will become available over the next five years, according to Keith Seed of the Western Australia Chamber of Commerce. He said Aus$240 billion (€175 billion) worth of projects would go ahead in the area in the next few years.
A how-to-feck-off-out-of-this-kip showcase at the Aviva Stadium? How apt.
Did you attend? How was it?
