The first Careers in Disability Expo showcased current and future jobs to support people with a disability in the Townsville community.
With around 800 new jobs to be created by the NDIS in the wider Townsville region over three years – the disability industry is the largest opportunity for jobs in the area.
Almost 700 people attended the expo to find out about the diverse range of jobs available, meet employers and get practical advice about pathways and training.
The expo offered:
• Career advice and pathway planning
• Free seminars
• Employers looking to hire
Careers in disability are highly rewarding, meaningful and make a real difference in people’s lives.
The opportunities are diverse–from management to specialist and direct support, and social engagement to technology developers. There are jobs to suit everyone, including entry level positions.
