"It was easy, I told Kelly how many people I needed and she sent through resumes of about double that, she even provided me with a summary of each candidate which was a great help. Joblink Plus provided quality candidates which we wouldn't have otherwise had access to in such a short time frame. They took a lot of stress out of the recruitment, making it easier and more economical because we didn't have to spend lots of time recruiting ourselves.
We've used Joblink Plus a couple of times now in Broken Hill and in Parkes and would definitely recommend them to other employers. We found them really easy to talk to and they really knew the candidates which they referred to us."
“When we do our own recruitment we end up getting inundated with hundreds of emails and it becomes a very tedious and time consuming process. When we use Joblink Plus we let them know who we are after and they help with the screening and recruitment processes and it’s all at no cost.
We appreciate the post placement support that Joblink Plus provide because it’s extra help that you need as an employer to have someone who can help you and your employee transition into sustainable employment a lot easier, and they both benefit from that support.
We also appreciate the wage subsidies that come into place when putting people on because we get a lot of people who have the right qualifications but lack the experience or have been out of the workforce for a period of time. The wage subsidies help out while the new employee gets comfortable in the new role before they can pick up where everyone else is.”
“I asked Joblink Plus to help me find job ready applicants for interviews. If I advertise a position myself I might have to go through 25 or more resumes. I’d like to go through them all myself but it can take up a lot of my time. It is good to know that I can rely on Joblink Plus to organise interviews with the most suitable applicants.
Jamie from Joblink Plus calls me regularly to see if there is anything that can be done to help the new employee settle in. Last time I spoke to him I mentioned that it would be really useful if the young man that we recently put on had a forklift licence. Joblink Plus sorted that out for us and now the young man can operate the forklift which is very valuable training for him and beneficial for our business.”
"I wanted to take this opportunity to thank Joblink Plus for the Work for the Dole activity being run at our club.
The difference this program makes to our club is substantial. As a self-funded charity, maintenance and general up-keep of the club sometimes falls behind due to the high cost of engaging tradespeople. Having this work done by this program means we can focus on supporting our local youth and vulnerable members of our community.
Currently we have four men (pictured with their supervisor) on the program - Joshua, Brandon, Jamie and Benjamin. I cannot stress enough how dedicated and amazing these guys are. They turn up with a positive attitude and a willingness to work. Nothing is too much trouble for them. They have fitted in well as part of our team and we enjoy having them here.
I would not hesitate to be a referee for them when applying for sustainable employment.
I also want to thank Sallie at Joblink Plus for her support. She has made the process of the program very easy and she has always been there to support us and the participants in the program.
Thank you again."
