VMA launches first dedicated jobs portal for the venue management industry

VMA launches first dedicated jobs portal for the venue management industry
December 2, 2019

The Venue Management Association has launched a new industry initiative, the VMA Jobs Board, powered by VenueJobs, as the first venue industry employment portal.

Supported by the industry and catering specifically to the venue management industry, VenueJobs will not only host job vacancies and manage the recruitment process, but also allow for prospective candidates to post their resumes for employers to peruse and bring together industry learning opportunities in one place.

To significantly reduce the expense of engaging a recruitment agency, VenueJobs will make the task of hiring far more certain with an easy to navigate site, access to multiple social media channels and the most competitive packaged rates, inclusive of advertising opportunities to profile your business or organisation.

In a statement introducing VenueJobs, the VMA advise that the portal will cater “to a niche market, attracting a pool of high calibre candidates and bringing skilled workers into the venue industry.”

The statement adds “there is no question that venues contribute to the economic and social wellbeing of the nation. Take for a moment the number of events that are regularly staged at the likes of sports stadiums, entertainment arenas and arts precincts, museums, festivals, conference and exhibition centres, racetracks and showgrounds and you start to realise what a sizeable employment sector the venue industry is.

“As our patrons’ expectations for a better experience rises, so too does the need for skilled personnel with industry expertise across all of the operational areas of our industry and venues.

“As a recruitment tool, VenueJobs markedly improves the ability to engage the right staff, so if you have job vacancies to advertise, click here to find out how your business or organisation can benefit from this new dedicated platform servicing the wider venue industry.

“VenueJobs has been designed to elevate employment, career and learning opportunities in the wider venue industry and ensure that the best talent is attracted to the sector.”
