Job seekers are being urged to consider work in regional South Australia in the wake of record  job vacancies.

There has been a 22 per cent hike in job advertisements in regional South Australia between September 2019 and September 2020, with 1,058 vacancies recently listed.

That is according to independent think tank Regional Australia Institute, which has been working with the Federal Government to create a campaign to change the narrative  show the rest of the country the opportunities available to live, work and invest in the regions.

'Regional Activators Alliance' is being launched today by Deputy Prime Minister the Hon. Michael McCormack. It is made up of 36 representative organisations from across the country, including local councils, economic development groups and industry representatives.

The national awareness campaign also has the support of the Regional Australia Council 2031 and members will come together four times a year with political, industry and community leaders for discussions and workshops.
