Greetings from Gayleen

– December 2022

,,Another year has flown by. I think this one seemed even quicker than usual as we all scrambled to recovery after the worst of covid and its fallout finally lifted from our shoulders. It has been a busy year for businesses, many coming out of hibernation, regrouping, and rebuilding their business operations. The biggest challenge for many has been availability of staff. All sectors have chronic staff shortages with tourism/hospitality heading the list with thousands of vacancies in the sector.

With international borders only slowly reopening and the cost of international travel extraordinary, we still have not seen our much-needed backpacker and student workforce return. The shortage of housing continues to be a hinderance to people relocating for employment.  Although, people are flocking to migrate to Queensland which we hope will translate into a boost in the availability of skilled workers joining the regional workforce.

Remember that Precruitment has both an excellent network of skilled candidates as well as many career opportunities with some outstanding employers for you to explore in the New Year.

Thank you to our Precruitment team and friends who have enjoyed shopping for our sponsored Salvation Army Family.  I know their generosity of giving all things food and gifts will bring some joy to the celebrations of a special family this Christmas.

With many businesses closing for Christmas in the coming week, we wanted to send you a very Merry Christmas and wish you Happy New Year before you head off.

Thank you all for your support in this past year. We look forward to working with you all in 2023.

Merry Christmas and warmest wishes to you and all your loved ones.
