The 2009 FOGS Indigenous Employment and Careers Expo will provide Mt. Isa Indigenous job seekers with the unique opportunity to connect with some of Queensland’s
most prominent employment, education and training providers including Australia
Post, Construction Skills Queensland, Xstrata and Woolworths. Exhibitors will have
a range of positions available for job seekers to apply for on the day.
The Former Origin Greats is a non profit organization made up of 166 former Queensland State of Origin players which is committed to developing initiatives to narrow the employment and training gap between Indigenous and non Indigenous Australians. This expo will be the fifth of six (6) FOGS Indigenous Employment and Careers Expo’s, supported by the Australian Government, that will be held throughout Queensland in 2009.
The Australian Government is providing funding for the six expos which will include displays from employers and industries in each of the regions and will provide Indigenous job seekers and school students with a chance to meet with employers and discuss employment and training opportunities.
