Sourcing & Selecting the right staff

We take extraordinary care to ensure that the labour hire staff we supply meet our clients’ requirements. We ensure we find the right staff by utilising a variety of tools:

  • Gaining a full understanding of your labour requirements. This will usually involve a meeting at your company to gain an insight into the site, the company, the culture and the role/s.
  • Sourcing via our talent pool of labour hire employees who have worked for us in the past and going to the market to top this pool up with new employees via advertising.
  • One-on-one interviews with a highly experienced consultant – all of our consultants have a minimum of 9 years experience in recruiting in the labour hire sector. These interviews focus on competency and skill fit with the role and cultural fit with your organisation.
  • Testing. We regularly conduct the following tests to assess candidates’ skills, depending upon the requirements of the position:
    • Understanding work instructions
    • Mechanical reasoning
    • Numerical
    • Manual dexterity  
    • Speed and accuracy with words and numbers
  • Reference Checks. Wherever possible, we conduct two work reference checks with managers of the employee over the past five years.

  • Our labour hire employees undertake an induction with us prior to going onto your site. In all cases we cover OH&S and Harassment & Bullying in the workplace. Where applicable we can also run customised inductions covering Forklift Safety and Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) for the food and pharmaceutical manufacturing industries.

  • All hiring and termination of labour hire assignments.

We simply ask you to verify the hours worked each week by each employee and we invoice you at an agreed hourly charge rate.
