BizMaroondah EmployAssist Forum

The BizMaroondah EmployAssist Forum is a Council initiated event that invited businesses to learn about the forms of assistance that exist when recruiting new employees. The forum included several community organisations that are involved in assisting jobseekers, with the aim of supporting business growth.

Eastern Volunteers was invited to the forum as an organisation that provides volunteer recruitment. People are increasingly using volunteer roles as a way to develop skills that can assist in gaining potential employment. Research undertaken by BizMaroondah has indicated that employers look favourably upon potential employees that have volunteer experiences.

The forum successfully connected businesses with these community organisations and will hopefully lead to new employment opportunities within Maroondah.
