The new platform is live now

The Motor Trades Association of Queensland (MTA Queensland) says it is tackling the ongoing skill shortage in the automotive industry head-on, announcing the launch of a new online job platform to connect local employers with the global labour market.
With the competition to attract and retain talent stronger than ever, MTA Queensland says its Automotive Jobs Queensland platform, developed in partnership with WorkinAUS, will deliver an all-new outlet for automotive employers to put their job openings in front of the domestic and international labour pool at the same time, saving time and money, and reaching a greater audience.
Partnering with WorkinAUS, whose market-leading technology matches thousands of international job seekers to local employers each month, will give employers access to a wide network of industry and Government job boards, while also assisting with recruitment marketing and compliance requirements.
MTA Queensland says the platform also features advanced technology including built-in video capability, applicant tracking system integration, and simple workflow, allowing employers to focus solely on the advertising while knowing everything else is taken care of.
For jobseekers, MTA Queensland says 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 to make Queensland 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,” MTA Queensland Chief Executive Officer, Rod Camm, said.
“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.”
