The STEC Job Board is designed to help South Burnett students and employers connect more efficiently

February 16, 2024

A new service designed to help South Burnett students find their first job is about to be launched online.

The Students To Employment Connections (STEC) Job Board will allow employers to advertise student jobs for free, and allow students to find employment opportunities suited to their abilities.

The job board has come about through the joint efforts of representatives from schools and local businesses, who have been working on the concept over the past 12 months.

It was unveiled to employers at Tuesday night’s Kingaroy of Chamber and Commerce and Industry meet’n’greet in Kingaroy.

The new jobs board will be operated through the Employment Matters website, and will be mirrored on

“This community initiative answers the needs of students to access a centralised student job board,” project leader Sheena Lindholm said.

She said the group found that an easy way to recruit students for jobs was a problem businesses needed a solution for, and the group was thrilled when Employment Matters agreed to provide the job board service.

“We would like to ask all student employers with job vacancies to register their vacancy on the STEC Job Board

“This will help both students and employers to find their match.”

The STEC group has been meeting once a month during school terms to share opportunities for students to learn work skills and seek work opportunities, as well as expose students to local industries.

“This project is a testament to the power of people who share needs, working together to find solutions,” Sheena said.

The STEC initiative is being auspiced by BIEDO and is expected to be fully functional next week.
