Several stands had 'We're hiring' signs on their stands at PacPrint and generally there is a shortage of candidates. Leading industry recruiters JDA Printrecruit had endless enquiries from printers seeking applicants, Vivad had no less than five jobs advertised. Leading fit-out firm Major Media are looking for an Ops and Install person...the list goes on.
|PacPrint exhibitor Vivad displayed no less than 5 job vacancies - www.vivad.com.au
The skills shortage is getting worse as businesses ramp up again now the worst of Covid seems over. Melbourne trade wide format printer Vivad was advertising for no less than five positions to be filled at PacPrint. JDA Printrecruit had several posted up on their stand wall.
Local flatbed cutter manufacturer Multicam had an A-Frame asking for application for a Service Technician.
People flying into PacPrint would have experienced delays at airports caused by an acute lack of staff and baggage handlers. Qantas, for example, let 6,000 people go when Covid grounded most flights and stood down almost 20,000. Many of those let go have simply found other employment and won't be back - a furlough system would have been much fairer on both sides.
