What is Evojobs?
Evojobs is the official employment website of Evocities. The site lists job vacancies in each Evocity location.
The Evocities themselves are the seven largest regional cities in NSW and incorporate Albury, Armidale, Bathurst, Dubbo, Orange, Tamworth and Wagga Wagga.
In addition to listing employment and career opportunities, the website also highlights other Evocity benefits from lifestyle and cost of living to facilities and infrastructure.
The overall Evocities marketing campaign was engaged in 2010 to encourage people to live, work and invest in an Evocity location.
The name and brand represents Energy, Vision and Opportunity – each fundamental to Evocity living.
How is the Evojobs website marketed?
Since campaign launch, the Evojobs website has been an integral component of the marketing campaign with research demonstrating the critical importance of employment and career opportunities for those considering relocation.

Evocities marketing messages are also pushed through digital channels such as search, display and social media with these online 24/7 every day of the year.
Extending its primary market beyond Sydney, Evocities marketing now also targets the eastern capital cities of Melbourne, Canberra and Brisbane.
