I’ve been doing some interesting research into job service providers and here are a couple of startling facts.
In the Northern Rivers region ( from Kingscliff to Grafton) there are no less than 20 registered recruitment agencies (other than SilverTemp) and 18 of them have websites. Most have multiple offices in the state.
It is interesting to note that none, yes none, of them mention any service to assist seniors or mature age people to find work.
At SilverTemp we are the lone service provider trying to find employment opportunities for mature age people so I’m going to start a campaign with our Federal Member to do something about it. We need to have a conversation Mr. Hogan.
With so many people over 50, 60 and 70 looking for part time and casual work surely we should be able to get our government to take action and help them out.
If you’ve had a less than satisfactory experience with a government funded job service provider we’d like to hear from you. Most of the 80+ seniors on my register have told some incredible stories about their job searches.
