Employment National enjoys successful first year

EMPLOYMENT National has placed more than 75,000 people across Australia into jobs in its first year of operation.

It listed more than 130,000 vacancies since April 1998 and has approximately 25,000 job seekers registered in WA.

Regional manager for Employ-ment National in WA Jennifer Binns said this was an outstanding result to mark its first birthday.

“Credit must go to the commitment of our staff across the country to match the right people for the right jobs,” Ms Binns said.

“The figures for our first full year are particularly pleasing because our first few months were hampered by the uncertainty among job seekers and employers about the new system.

“Our role is now well known and our placements are steadily increasing.”

Ms Binns said more than 500,000 job seekers have chosen to register with the company and a wide variety of employers were using its services.

“National contracts exist with companies such as Holden, Officeworks, P&O Resorts and Sportsgirl and, in local communities, employers have found we are able to provide a superior service to that offered under the old system,” she said.

“On top of that, we are confident of reporting a profit for our first year and the outlook for the next twelve months is strong.”

Employment National has placed people mainly in manufacturing (20 per cent), retail (15 per cent), property and business services (11 per cent), construction (9 per cent), hospitality (8 per cent) and the agriculture, fishery and forestry sector (8 per cent).

More than 5,300 people in WA have been assisted into new jobs through the service.

Employment National is the largest provider in the Job Network with 17 branches throughout WA.

A combination of private, community and government organisations, the new Job Network has opened the employment services market to increased competition.

“Under the new legislation, all members compete on level ground, regardless of which industry sector they stem from,” Ms Binns said.

“What this means for job seekers and employers is a market that is centred around customer choice and satisfaction.”
