Greetings from Gayleen

– September 2021 

Welcome to the team Teagan, covid updates, and some helpful resources for HR staff and Candidates!

We welcome Teagan Smith to Precruitment! Teagan has joined our recruitment team having recently graduated from JCU with a Bachelor Business and a double major in Human Resources and Marketing. During her studies, Teagan worked full time in retail management for a leading sports company where she developed her great work ethic and outstanding customer service skills. Teagan is a high achiever who consistently exceeded her corporate KPI targets and goals. Teagan will be working alongside our permanent recruitment team and assisting with our corporate marketing. She looks forward to providing great service and energy to all of our clients and candidates.

We have continued to be very lucky and dodged the Covid bullet that has locked most of Australia down and most of Australia out of Queensland. Our Vax rates are creeping over 60% but we have a long way to go to catch up so that we can open in line with the plans for the rest of the country. Tourism numbers remain down 90-95% and still no financial support.  Sadly, I said the same thing last month, so a month later and people are still trying to hang on to their livelihoods as their financial situations only continue to deepen. Keep supporting local business.

Precruitment has partnered with career transition specialists Turning Point Partners for almost 20 years. If you are a HR professional or business leader facing difficult situations managing your team at this time the TPP Toolkit is a great free resource that may help you navigate through change.

I remind those looking for work or know someone that is looking for work we still have some great career opportunities for both temporary and permanent employment in a variety of industries that do remain strong in this current economic climate. Please go to our web site to see some of our open opportunities and remember you can register your resume with us by clicking the link. And a reminder that we have some great free resources to help you in your job search and application process if you need some help with resume and cover letter writing or with interview tips

I have enjoyed participating as a judge in the 2021 Business Excellence Awards. Even in this difficult time it is great to see the innovation and outstanding achievements and attitudes of our business community. The winners will be announced, and all will celebrate the triumph of being a finalist on the 15th October.
