New industry careers centre launches in Australia
In support of a buoyant marine sector down under, the Marina Industries Association (MIA) in partnership with the Boating Industry Association (BIA) and Superyacht Australia has launched Marine Jobs.
Powered by a specialist jobs board provider, Marine Jobs is an online ‘career centre’ designed to make it easier for employers to advertise vacancies and for people to find the right job in the marine industry. This, the company says, will improve both the efficiency and effectiveness of the recruitment processes and increase industry employee retention.
Its primary purpose is a recruitment platform where employers can post jobs to a qualified and targeted job seeker market, but Marine Jobs also provides a range of career resources including information on apprenticeships and industry training, writing a resumé, and preparing for an interview.
“Until now there hasn’t been a single recruitment website that the marine industry could go to and find every job available in the marine sector,” says Suzanne Davies, CEO of MIA. “Using generic platforms is completely unsatisfactory, and often results in literally hundreds of unqualified applications to sift through. Marine Jobs offers a place where like-minded employers and job seekers can connect.”
Employers can quickly and easily post opportunities to the jobs board while job seekers can anonymously post their CV to the board while remaining in complete control over which employers they reveal their information to.
“It’s another example of the type of practical career support we provide to the industry,” adds BIA co-general manager, Nik Parker.
