Gippsland’s Job Shadow Day event, held annually in September is a Work Solutions Gippsland initiative designed to bring people with disabilities and local employers together for one day to promote equal employment opportunities and highlight the valuable contribution people with disabilities can and do make in the workplace. This year the Job Shadow Day event will be on Thursday 12th September.

Jobseekers explore the world of work by ‘shadowing’ someone in the workplace as they go about their normal working day.
