Jobs Dan Murphy’s still looking for thousands of workers across Australian

A hiring blitz has brought on more than 1000 new staff at Dan Murphy’s after the liquor chain offered guaranteed 10-minute on-the-spot interviews with anyone over 18 who asked for one.

“We wanted to make it as easy as possible for people who are interested in a career with Dan Murphy’s to get a foot in the door,” Dan Murphy’s managing director Agi Pfeiffer-Smith said.

But the hundreds of new staff still aren’t enough amid a tight labour market, with the bottle shop giant still looking to hire more than 1200 people across the country.

The liquor chain hoped the “hiring week” that occurred from September 5 to 12 would fill 2200 vacancies in Dan Murphy‘s 258 stores — including some in WA — , with pressure building to bring on more staff before the busy Christmas period.

“Every single Dan Murphy’s store is hiring,” Ms Pfeiffer-Smith said.

Dan Murphy‘s is far from the only business struggling to fill job vacancies, with hospitality venues and retail workers across the country trying to find available staff amid low unemployment figures.

Australia’s latest unemployment rate sits at 3.5 per cent, an increase of just 0.1 per cent from July’s low.

On top of immediately offering job interviews with store managers, Dan Murphy’s also offered to front the training cost for successful applicants to get their responsible service of alcohol certification to attract more potential hires.

The company aimed to fill 670 roles in NSW, 570 in Queensland, 530 in Victoria, 280 in Western Australia and 140 in South Australia.
