Professional advice

Being an employer of choice is vital for organisations looking to recruit talent in an environment where skills shortages and an ageing workforce are creating an increasingly competitive marketplace. Targeting relatively untapped labour pools and investing in the recruitment and development of workers from non-traditional areas, including Indigenous people, can provide your organisation with a competitive edge and help attract the best people to meet your business needs.

  • Engage with executive management, traditional owners and other key stakeholders to determine employment needs and objectives
