What's in it for Employers?

Kathy 1Employers as you are aware, even though many communities have been through tough times due to financial strain, Mackay is still thriving and good workers are hard and expensive to find.

Our workforce is generally made up of local people, who don’t come with relocation expenses, and are very keen to work. Many of our placements have held jobs for many years and been an asset to their employers.

If you are interested in exploring this further, give us a call on 4957 8177.

We will discuss with you the requirements of your job vacancy, and find you the right person to suit your needs.

All of our services to you are provided for free.

In certain circumstances, financial assistance packages are available as an incentive to employ that person.  Funding for workplace modifications may also be available.

If after discussing this with us you decide to give it a go, what next?

We'll organise interviews for you recommending only the people that we think will do the job for you.

We'll advise appropriate pay rates and working hours and if you find somebody suitable, we then help you with providing on the job training, in other words, we just don't leave you with the employee.

This of course means less pressure on your staff and management to provide training.

We do all that for you, and organise if applicable, the financial assistance packages involved with your new employee.
