NEARLY 1000 local jobs will be on offer today to both ex-Telstra staff and other local job seekers at the Telstra Jobs Market at Goonellabah Sports and Aquatic Centre.

A total of 36 employers and job agencies have stepped up to the plate and can promise 240 full-time roles and 680 seasonal/casual jobs, local MP Janelle Saffin said.

Ms Saffin and Lismore mayor Jenny Dowell were at Goonellabah yesterday to promote the event and give a final word of encouragement to all job seekers from the region to attend.

"The purpose of it is to get real jobs for local people so that they can stay local," said Ms Saffin.

Ex-Telstra call centre staff will gain access to the event from 9am, while the jobs market will be available to any local job seekers after 11.30am.

Westpac Lismore branch assistant bank manager Nicki Taylor said the event was an opportunity for her to see real applicants in person - always a great way to make an impression.

Westpac has one full-time and two casual roles available.

"We would think that the people coming from Telstra would fit very well into a banking environment," said Ms Taylor.

"I'm excited to meet people face to face - you get more of an idea of the candidates and who they are rather than getting a resume over the net."

Cr Dowell called for job seekers to 'come dressed and ready for a job interview'.

Lismore City Council business facilitator Mark Batten said the number of jobs available, particularly in the health category, proved Lismore was still the service centre of the region.
