Job seekers and those looking for a new career have been urged to join the Queensland energy sector and take advantage of the possibilities that are becoming readily available in the state.
Energy Skills Queensland (ESQ) has launched a new web-based service to help would-be employees in the energy and telecommunications sectors cash in on the boom, and help employers find them.
ESQ chief executive officer Glenn Porter said the organisation was the first port of call for anyone looking to enter the growing industry.
“We want to put the right people in the right jobs, and give them access to the fantastic employment prospects that are available,” Mr Porter said.
“Our new Careers in Energy website is a great resource for employers and job seekers who are looking for their chance to enter this booming sector.
“There’s plenty of information about the industry, including gas, power generation, telecommunication and electrotechnology.
“There’s also a job search engine and online application facility, and professionals in recruitment will be able to post their listings for free.
“There are so many opportunities available, so anyone who is considering a career change or is wanting to further develop the skills they have, can visit the Careers in Energy Website.”
Mr Porter said ESQ modelling showed the coal seam gas to liquefied natural gas industry alone could deliver 18,000 jobs in the next four years.
The rollout of the National Broadbank Network would also be a major source of new employment opportunities.
