JOB SEEKERS are flocking to visit the Orion Jobs Hub in a quest to secure one of the hundreds of new retail and hospitality positions which have been announced.

The hub is a community initiative developed in conjunction with Mirvac, Orion Springfield Central and All Trades Queensland to connect local job seekers with the 700 new jobs which will be up for grabs when stage two of the shopping centre opens.

Applicants can visit the community room in the shopping centre to meet with a representative from All Trades Queensland and learn more about the new stores which will be opening and the wide array of positions available.

Orion expansion brings 700 retail jobs to Ipswich

Ipswich Jobs Day set to provide a boost for youth

Ipswich Mayor Paul Pisasale officially opened the Orion Jobs Hub at a small ceremony and thanked Mirvac for helping to lower the unemployment rate in the area.

"Thank you for being corporate citizens. Thank you for believing in the area and thank you for giving people the opportunity to get a job," he said.

"To me, there is nothing better than giving someone a job.

"I know you are providing a fantastic retail facility here. You're right in the hub of one of the fastest growing areas in the country, and to me, what you are providing here is live, work and play."

Building stage two also helped boost the local economy by creating around 440 construction jobs.

The stage two expansion will include Coles, Target, Event Cinemas, JB Hi-Fi, Orion Hotel and an additional 60 specialty retailers, as well as a brand new Town Square dining precinct will support Event Cinemas.

A new Town Walk will provide easy thoroughfare from Springfield Central Train Station to University Southern Queensland, The Mater Hospital, Robelle Domain and the soon to be opened lagoon

Job seekers are welcome to visit the facility to seek advice and information from the friendly Jobs Hub team now.

The meeting room will be open Monday - Friday, 10am-2pm and Thursday nights 5-7pm.
