Let’s set the record straight – there are two different kinds of benefits we’re talking about. Firstly, there are the benefits of witnessing first-hand the difference you can make to someone’s life. This is valuable and rewarding work – just ask our staff! We are an industry leader in Employment Services and the far-reaching effects of our work are felt in communities around Australia every day.
Secondly, there are a number of attractive benefits available to you when you work here at Jobfind. We’re one big happy family and we reward our staff in the following ways:
We believe strongly in developing and promoting staff from within. All new job opportunities are advertised internally and we encourage existing staff to apply. This proves that we truly believe that we have great people everywhere.
At Jobfind we have a significant track record for ‘home grown’ Team Leaders and Managers. As our company continues to grow, further opportunities will arise for people interested in management-level roles.
So if you’re interested in progressing your career, get on the fast track at Jobfind.
Training and professional development
At Jobfind we recognise the value and importance of continuous training and professional development for all our staff. In addition to being fully trained in their role, Jobfind staff are encouraged to undertake any education or training that would benefit their career. Our support of continued education can extend to:
- Allowance for time off
- Flexible working hours
- Financial assistance
- Salary sacrifice
In addition to external training courses, Jobfind staff are invited to undertake any of the 250 online courses available through LearnNow, our state-of-the-art training program. In recent times staff members seem to be flocking to these courses, the most popular ones being computer skills training, negotiation skills and time management.
Recognition & reward schemes
Top performers are recognised at Jobfind. After all, we believe that hard work should be rewarded. Jobfind has various incentive schemes throughout the year which are linked to the achievement of targets and KPIs at a team level.
Staff are eligible to access the incentive schemes following their probationary period and Business Managers will provide specific information to successful applicants.
We look after our great people here at Jobfind. We are actively committed to the health and well-being of our employees and have a number of programs in place to encourage this.
Healthy lifestyle allowance
We’re giving you $100. It’s as simple as that! Well ok, there is one condition- this annual allowance is to be used for activities or items which promote health and well-being. A lot of our staff use it for either sports shoes, gym or sporting memberships, health supplements, quit smoking programs or sports equipment.
So if you’ve been thinking about getting fit and healthy, let us give you a boost!
Around March each year (prior to the start of the ‘flu season’) all our employees are able to receive a free influenza vaccination. We’ll make that common cold not so common after all.
Your physical and emotional wellbeing can often be improved by simply taking note of a few “good ideas”. That’s why Jobfind runs its year-round Wellbeing Campaigns to offer regular hints and tips for improving the wellbeing of all staff.
Employee Assistance Program (EAP)
We want you to be healthy in body and mind. All Jobfind employees and their immediate families have access to a confidential and professional counseling service free of charge. The EAP offers initial counseling for a range of issues including stress, anxiety, family/relationship problems or grief. It also acts as a referral point to specialist services where required.
Our Managers are also able to access an additional service providing expert advice on staff and team management covering issues such as conflict resolution, debriefing and professional support.
Birthday and diversity leave
As you may have noticed we do things differently at Jobfind. Your personal life is a part of who you are and we realise that sometimes it needs to be acknowledged and not ignored.
In addition to standard leave entitlements our staff receive 2 extra days of leave:
Birthday leave – a stand-alone day of paid leave to celebrate your birthday
Diversity leave – a stand-alone day of paid leave to pursue interests of personal, cultural, family or religious significance.
We believe in putting family first and we stand by this claim. Jobfind staff are able to take up to 52 weeks of parental leave. This includes maternity leave, paternity leave and adoption leave. You can also request an additional 52 weeks of parental leave under the National Employment Standards and are able to discuss the option of flexible work arrangements, such as working on a part-time basis.
Under the new Australian Government Scheme, staff may be eligible for a maximum of 18 weeks paid leave at the Federal Minimum Wage rate. For more information visit the Family Assistance Office at http://www.familyassist.gov.au or refer to the ‘Maternity at Work’ booklet at http://www.industrialrelations.nsw.gov.au/biz_res/oirwww/pdfs/Maternity_at_Work.pdf.
Long service leave
At Jobfind we reward loyalty with 13 weeks of long service leave granted to our employees following 10 years of continuous service.
Salary and performance reviews
We pay attention to each and every one of our staff….and we want you to be great! At Jobfind we conduct annual salary and performance reviews to individually discuss the activities and achievements of a person and to reward high-performing staff.
So if you’ve reached all your targets and more, or if you’ve achieved something of great significance in your work life, expect to be noticed and rewarded.
