Metro Tasmania pledges with the Glenorchy Jobs Hub

Metro Tasmania has become the 17th business pledged to partner with the Glenorchy Jobs Hub.

The pledge was made at an event at the Jobs Hub on Tuesday 12 March with Mayor of Glenorchy Bec Thomas and CEO of Metro Tasmania Katie Cooper.

Through the pledge, Metro committed to working with the Jobs Hub to attend job expos and fairs, support information sessions for students and job seekers and collaborate to identify suitable candidates within the community for Metro Tasmania positions.

Mayor Thomas said she was pleased that Metro had joined the list of local organisations individuals to become a pledging partner.

“As we all know, public transport is vital for an inclusive and well-connected community.  Today’s pledge is a great opportunity to work more closely with Metro to connect job seekers with Metro vacancies which helps not only those looking for work but also the broader community,” Mayor Thomas said.

“As with all our pledging partners, attendance at events and workshops is really important for creating relationships between employers and jobseekers and assisting local people to build themselves a better employment future.”

Mayor Thomas said that Metro Tasmania would also be attending the upcoming Glenorchy Jobs Fair along with more than 30 other exhibitors on 19 March at KGV.

“This is a great opportunity for people to meet and talk with businesses such as Metro who are actively recruiting. Our Jobs Fair is well known for achieving employment results and we hope to continue that trend at this month’s event.”

Metro CEO Katie Cooper said Metro was pleased to formalize this partnership after a number of years working closely with the Glenorchy Jobs Hub to deliver great outcomes for the local community.

“We are hearing a lot lately – both in Tasmania and interstate – about employers finding it difficult to find workers,” she said.

“Metro is facing similar issues.

“We believe the pledge to partner with the Glenorchy Jobs Hub is one tangible way we can engage with our community and proactively recruit people interested in employment with the company.”

The Glenorchy Jobs Hub helps all jobskeeers to find work and to improve opportunity for employment through connection with training and other support.  The Hub also offers a free, no-fuss, one-stop employment service to local businesses.  For more information on the Glenorchy Jobs Hub, visit the website at
