Calling people of passion and skill

Careers expo showcases job opportunities at Wesley Mission

The community services and aged care sectors are among the fastest growing in Australia, rivalling retail as the nation’s leading employer.

Each day demand for care and support in our community grows and so does the need for skilled staff: a fact that Wesley Mission knows only too well. 

Demand for care and support in our community grows

The contemporary community and aged care sectors are sophisticated and diverse, however job seekers often don’t consider these employment options because they have little or no knowledge about sector provision and what career opportunities exist.

Wesley Mission is offering its own entrée to the Not for Profit sector when it holds the inaugural Wesley Mission Careers Expo at the Ryde Civic Hall on Thursday 21 February between 6 and 8 pm.

Wesley Mission experts from areas such as aged care, disability, and homeless services, as well as education and conferences will be on hand to answer specific questions about career opportunities with one of Australia’s largest charities.

Attendees will receive an information pack that will include the list of current job vacancies and locations. They will also have the chance to ask questions of staff, receive position descriptions for available jobs, and if prepared, hand over a resume and participate in a short five minute ‘mini’ interview.

There will also opportunities to learn how to build a career at Wesley Mission, how to plan a career change, how to study while you earn an income, and an occasion to explore the wide range of Certificate and Diploma training courses on offer.

The Expo is also ideal for jobseekers who are looking to continue a career in aged, disability or home care but are looking for a fresh start with a new employer.

Attendees will also hear from the Rev Keith Garner, CEO of Wesley Mission, who heads up the work of Wesley Mission and has oversight of its 2,000 employees.

“At the Wesley Mission Careers Expo you will discover how your skills and passion can make an enduring difference to the lives of people and our community,” Mr Garner said.

“You approach each day knowing that you are making a tangible contribution while working alongside people who share your commitment and enthusiasm.”
