Designed for Employment Consultants / Case Managers
In a complicated and constantly changing industry, giving the right support to new staff is critical so they can hit the ground running and avoid feeling overwhelmed. Our Employment Services Industry jobactive Employment Consultant Induction series can help them feel comfortable and understand the industry context and framework that they are now working in. This will help you to retain staff and to avoid having to go through the costly recruitment process again. Our aim is to assist them to settle in quickly and become productive as soon as they can. The series will also be useful for existing staff that need a refresher or are returning to work after a long absence (such as maternity or long service leave).
