Gold Coast 2018 seeks out latest partner

Online employment marketplace Seek has been named the third official supporter of the 2018 Commonwealth Games multi-sport event, which will be held in Australia’s Gold Coast region.

Under the agreement, Seek will support the Games’ workforce recruitment process by developing a purpose-built platform that will manage applications.

Seek will also advertise both paid and volunteer-based vacancies on its website in the lead-up to the Games, which will take place from April 4-15, 2018.

“To bring the event to life we require a large number of employees and volunteers and this requires sophisticated technology solutions to manage such large volumes of enquiries and applications,” Nigel Chamier, chairman of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games Corporation, said.

Seek joins KPMG and MinterEllison as official supporters of the Games. Queensland-based software solutions company Centium Software was last week named the first official supplier of the event. Jupiters, Griffith University and TAFE Queensland – which have each been assigned top-tier official partner status – complete the current sponsorship line-up.
