The Motor Trades Association of Queensland (MTAQ) has launched an online job platform to connect local employers with the global labour market. Developed in partnership with WorkinAUS, the platform allows automotive employers to simultaneously place job openings in front of the domestic and international labour pools, saving time and money while reaching a greater audience.
MTAQ said that partnering with WorkinAUS, whose “market-leading technology matches thousands of international job seekers to local employers each month”, gives employers access to a wide network of industry and government job boards, in addition to assisting with recruitment marketing and compliance requirements.
The platform features advanced technology, including built-in video capability, applicant tracking system integration, and AI job tool writing integration, allowing employers to input basic information and produce a job ad in seconds.
MTAQ said Automotive Jobs Queensland will be the “go-to site” for skilled workers seeking to further their careers, new-starters looking to enter the industry, and international talent wanting to make Queensland their home.
“The ongoing drastic skill and labour shortage that continues to impact the Australian automotive industry requires an outside-the-box approach to attract new talent pools,” said Rod Camm, CEO of the MTAQ. “As the peak body representing automotive employers in Queensland, we are thrilled to be able to bring this global jobs platform to market to ensure our members have the capability to cast the widest net possible to find and recruit talent.
“With jobs available across the state, the Automotive Jobs Queensland platform will not just advertise jobs, but advertise Queensland as the ideal place to come work and live, creating an ongoing pipeline of experienced candidates for businesses to connect with.
“The platform is innovative, easy to use and price competitive, and I am optimistic that it will be considered a strong avenue of recruitment going forward.”
To celebrate the launch of the platform, MTAQ members can sign up for free and receive unlimited job ad posting until 2 October 2023.
