An exciting new initiative to put careers into overdrive
While the Brisbane Truck Show has a proud history of showcasing career opportunities in the heavy vehicle industry – bringing tens of busloads of school students to each event for facilitated career presentations and tours of the show floor – this year things are stepping up several gears.
In 2019 a new Jobs Hub will facilitate employers meeting job seekers at the Brisbane Truck Show, supported by a dedicated web portal.
Industry employers have been posting positions of all types on the portal – in some cases looking for various levels of experience and qualifications, and in others – suitable for people looking to enter the industry for the first time.
“We are really excited to be able to connect with the broader community around the strength of the heavy vehicle industry and the rewarding careers that we know are there for people with the right attitude,” HVIA Chief Executive Todd Hacking said.
“The Jobs Hub is connecting employers and job seekers right now with well over one hundred jobs already posted.”

Meet the heavy vehicle industry career ambassadors
The focus on Thursday and Friday will predominantly remain on students, before shifting to all include job seekers, including skilled workers looking to transition from another career or industry.
“We’ve invited ambassadors from various sectors of the industry to share the stories of their fascinating and diverse career paths.” Mr Hacking said.
“We hope that listening to these wonderful people talk about their own experiences will inspire young people considering their first job, and others looking at a career change, to take a closer look at the opportunities on offer in the heavy vehicle industry.”
