Matching local people with local jobs

 Competition heading image for Matching local people with local jobs

There’s no denying that 2020 was tough all round especially for those running small businesses and the people of Hobart who lost their jobs.

This became glaringly obvious to the Triple M team after listener Leigh, wrote into Brian Carlton about her husband Scott who had lost his job last year due to the pandemic and was struggling to find another… Local business legend John Brierley picked up the phone in response and in an amazing turn of events, offered Scott a position at his Derwent Park business which he commenced this week….

Take a listen to how it unfolded:

So this month, Triple M are leaping into action as Brian Carlton: The Spoonman aims to match up a million dollars worth of work in Hobart.

Every day, Brian will feature local available jobs to promote on air and on social media with the goal of having them filled by willing and qualified people in Hobart.

We’ll match up the jobs to the people as well as opening the phones to the job-seekers of Hobart to let us know what industry they’re looking for work in.

We’ll aim to match up and follow up with local people and businesses to hopefully achieve our goal of making a real difference to a lot of people in Hobart!

If you’re a local Southern Tassie business and you have an opening – Tell us about it below and we’ll be in touch to help get your position on the air and filled with the right person for you!

Triple M's A Million Dollars Worth of Work campaign has received the backing of the Tasmanian Chamber of Commerce & Industry. The TCCI CEO, Michael Bailey reached out to The Spoonman to offer his support! He described the campaign as fantastic and emphasized the importance of getting the message out to the public.
