Initially, Locatrix contacted CIM Employment for help recruiting for a Draftsperson. CIM Employment Consultant, Emma Rose met with John, CEO of Locatrix, and explained CIM’s Employer Recruitment Suppoprt Program. Emma explained to John the Government Incentives that are available in relation to employing a Disability Management Service Participant. John was happy for Emma to send through any resumes that suited the position description.
John connected Emma with Amanda Eade, Locatrix Executive Manager. Emma applied the comprehensive CIM Employment pre-screening framework to examining the requirements of the role to ensure she presented Amanda with appropriately matched candidates. Emma forwarded relevant resumes to Amanda and after interviewing the candidates, a CIM Employment participant was employed full time for the drafting position.
For the first 26 weeks of the participant’s employment, Emma liaised with both Amanda and the participant to ensure the participant was managing their transition to work. The participant has successfully maintained their employment as a productive member of the Locatrix team.
During this time, Amanda requested that Emma assist with recruiting two more staff members for the Locatrix team. One position was for an Executive Assistant and another was for a Compliance Officer. The same process was followed and we are pleased to have placed two CIM Employment participants into these roles as well – both still enjoying their employment with Locatrix.
Amanda Eade, Locatrix Executive Manager, says “For these positions we were mostly looking for employees that had an easy going nature and could work well within the team”.
Amanda says “Our new recruits have settled in very well. I am very grateful to our CIM Employment consultant, Emma Rose, who has been lovely and easy to talk to and is always available to assist with our needs”.
