9 places that are still hiring workers right now

The coronavirus pandemic has shut Australia down. Not only is the healthcare system expected to be put under great pressure, but so is our welfare system and the national economy.

So far, nearly one million people have lost their jobs, and while the government has announced many stimulus and economic support packages, not everyone is able to access them or in a financial position to wait out the pandemic and shutdown measures, which are expected to last until June 29 in some states.

While many businesses have had to shut their doors due to the coronavirus pandemic, some companies are still hiring workers during this difficult time.

Woolworths

Woolworths has announced that it plans to hire up to 20,000 new staff.

Coles

Coles has announced that they plan to hire another 5000 workers across a variety of roles.

Telstra

As many of us are now working from home and utilising our own home and internet connections, Telstra will be needing a strong team to manage customers requests. Telstra are offering up to 1000 temporary call centre jobs.
