Gratis Recruitment identified a significant gap when it comes to skills and knowledge required to work in Aged/Disability Services. This applies to newly trained and/or experienced workers. We identified there were job seekers with the qualification that required additional assistance in relation to their skills, to successfully gain employment in this area; workers who displayed empathy, advocacy, professionalism and a genuine understanding to facilitate the person-centred care approach.
To address these barriers, we embarked on a series of pre-employment programs we call “Bridging the Gap”. Each program designed for our sectors. Because of this unique program, we have successfully secured work for over 712 workers nationally. We believe that this New Mindset in Aged & Disability Care Recruitment will ultimately provide new and improved results for the organisations we represent.
