An ‘Assessment Centre’ is a small mini-career-expo of sorts. We run them for individual employers who have multiple open roles for veterans. It gives potential candidates the chance to meet the team and get a feel for the culture in a more casual setting, plus learn about career pathway options with top performing Australian-based companies.
Usually they involve office tours, presentations and sometime beer and pizza. We often also run speed interview sessions for pre-matched candidates, enabling veterans to face-to-face with hiring managers and sell their skills.
Earlier in the month veterans on our Skilled Labour Pathway in Perth attended Tasman Rope Access, with a number being quickly employed by the company. We also took a group of veterans to Stryker in Sydney, to showcase both entry-level and executive-level logistics and warehousing roles and give candidates the chance to go behind-the-scenes at the company that has been voted #1 place to work in Australia!
Last week veterans on our Facilities Management Pathway attended Glad Group in Sydney CBD – more details on hires from that event to come. Plus another small group from our Sales Pathway attended Charterhouse in Sydney to learn about careers in recruitment and why the military mindset is a great match for this line of work.
Keep an eye on our weekly email and social media pages to learn about upcoming Assessment Centres. For your diary: Amazon Web Services in Sydney, May 3rd, more details to come.
