Brisbane Careers Expo

On 20 and 21 June 2022, Royal Life Saving attended the Brisbane Careers and Employment Expo at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre. Over the two day period, staff were joined by over 120 organisations and employers with career opportunities for all ages.

We released our Aquatic Industry Job Guide at the expo giving school students information to be able to make informed decision about a career in the aquatic industry. We were approached by many industry organisations, school students and job seekers, in which we provided an array of materials outlining our courses and career progression opportunities, as well as explaining options for individuals that worked with their goals in the future.

As the peak body for drowning prevention, we played a game with all willing participants (via a video), to spot a drowning casualty before the lifeguard jumps in to rescue them by placing their hands on their head. If they did it correctly, they won a highly sought after duck.

We look forward to attending the next expo, and providing further information on our courses and training and career pathway opportunities for those interested in working in the Aquatic Industry!
