Do you have the best job in town? Enter our competition

DO YOU get out of bed with a spring in your step each day ?

Does each new day at work provide an exciting world of opportunity?

Well, we want to know about it.

Tell us why your job or workplace is so good, and be in the running to win a $1000 Flight Centre voucher as part of our Best Job In Town competition.

The competition is part of a celebration to launch the new Jobs portal. Check it out by clicking the jobs tab above.

It's a great place to find a new career, or advertise. We offer multi-media packages for employers looking for the right candidate, with print and digital solutions.

And best of all, it's local. Many other digital sites fill your inbox with time-wasting candidates

Local knowledge is good for more than finding the best fishing spots. Increasingly, employers are seeing the value in hiring local staff and drawing on their relationship with their community.

It's one of those rare situations where everyone wins. Employers get staff who, as well as knowing the job, know the region in which they are working, the people and issues that move the region forward and those that stall progress.

For staff it means a positive work-life balance is that much easier to attain.

If you can cut out two hours of daily commuting, you've freed up about around 500 hours a year. You're also contributing to the place where you live - your efforts benefit your community.

The broader community wins with its people engaged and contributing to their region.

It's not always going to be possible to hire locally - in industries where a specific skill set is required it might well be impossible to find those skills in the local talent pool but there remain plenty of opportunities for businesses to employ locals.

Visit www.frasercoastchronicle.com.au/bestjob/ for more information, and send us your entry before September 19.
