CLARKSON’S Greenhouse Education will host a ‘speed dating’ careers night next week to bring prospective employers and employees together.
The training centre, which opened in mid-2017, has invited childcare and early learning providers to attend the February 8 event where they can meet pre-screened potential employees seeking traineeships or employment.
Candidates can register interest by completing a survey and submitting their resume, and those chosen can meet employers for an informal, five-minute chat at the event.
General manager Ian Harvey said it was a great way to bring the industry together.
“We know from our own experience it can be difficult to find a job, and also for businesses to find competent staff,” he said.
“We thought we would help the industry out by pre-screening candidates and bringing everyone together in an informal, yet professional setting.
“Owners and managers can come along, sit down with the candidates we approve and lock it in if they both feel it is a good fit.
“This will save both candidates and employers a heap of time and money as the job hunting process can be daunting and stressful for both.
“It also opens up traineeship opportunities for people looking to get into the industry and start their career.”
About 100 people applied, with 50 of those best suited to early education careers shortlisted to meet eight childcare providers representing 20 centres.
