Local job seekers will now have better opportunities to find work thanks to a new partnership between Glenorchy Jobs Hub and the Museum of Old and New Art (Mona).

The exciting new venture aims to reduce the rate of unemployment in the Glenorchy region by increasing career prospects in hospitality and tourism. This will help address the impacts brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Mona has been a key contributor to growth throughout Glenorchy and the state since opening in January 2011.

Mona CEO, Patrick Kelly is delighted with the recent partnership.

“Mona is proud to be part of the Glenorchy community. Many of our team are from the northern suburbs—not least our founder David Walsh—so we’re pleased to support the Glenorchy Jobs Hub and the key role that it plays”, he said.

“We look forward to working with Glenorchy City Council on this venture and seeing the positive impact that it will have on our diverse and vibrant neighbourhood.”

Glenorchy Mayor, Bec Thomas is equally pleased with the recent collaboration.

“Glenorchy City Council is excited about the impact that the Glenorchy Jobs Hub has had with our local job seekers and businesses. We are grateful to have businesses like Mona to adopt and support the Hub, and engage with our community projects,” she said.

Jobs Hub Manager Cassie Athanasiou views the partnership as an exciting opportunity for the greater Glenorchy community.

“Working with Mona shows the positive impact that the Glenorchy Jobs Hub is having on the local community,” she said.

“It demonstrates how, through this type of service, people can truly find self-empowerment and employment opportunities.”

Glenorchy Jobs Hub staff look forward to working with Mona, and the many opportunities this partnership will provide.
