Looking for Workers??Workabout_Australia_LOGO_BIG_3

Gulf Savannah Development (GSD) has launched a new initiative to help businesses in our region find workers – seasonal workers, skilled workers, tradespeople and general employees.

We have developed a 3-year partnership with Workabout Australia to promote the Gulf Savannah as a region where employment is readily available. Workabout Australia will promote employment opportunities in our region through special features on their website and via their extensive networks and 'Members Club'.

Many Gulf Savannah businesses already use Workabout Australia to promote their job vacancies. Have you given it a go yet?

Special Deal for Gulf Savannah Businesses: Under the partnership arrangement:

• if you currently pay the annual listing fee of $275.00 to advertise opportunities with Workabout Australia, you will, during the course of 2014, be offered two years of listings for the price of one year
• if you don't currently pay the listing fee with Workabout Australia, but decide to give it a go this year, they will offer you two years of listings for the price of one year.

This thus represents a 50% saving to businesses, so if nothing else, give it a try but hurry as the offer ends 31st December 2014!

Businesses must be based in one of GSD's member Shires to be eligible for this offer (Burke, Carpentaria, Croydon, Doomadgee, Etheridge or Mornington).

  • You can check out Workabout Australia at
  • The Gulf Savannah profile can be accessed through the home page (Highlighted locations)
  • Gulf Savannah jobs are listed in the QLD section of the 'Jobs' page. Click on 'QLD' on the map of Australia on the home page.
