Transition to Work Youth Coordinator – Mackay
IDEAL Placements is an Employment service that I am proud to say I work for. As a Youth Coordinator for a locally owned, not-for-profit, I get the pleasure of working closely with each one of my participants and personalising a plan unique to their life and goals. Being involved in a person’s journey to employment, and being present while they achieve their goals is a very rewarding and fulfilling process. I am pleased to be working for Mackay’s only Transition to Work Provider and I look forward to many future achievements among my team and the youth of Mackay.
Administration Assistant – Airlie Beach
Hi, my name is Jodie
I joined IDEAL Placements because I was made redundant from my previous job and I was looking to get my teeth into something “different”. I am in an administration role with IDEAL Placements in the Whitsundays. Currently I have been a part of the team for three months.
As a business I found this was intriguing to me because of so many different avenues I can learn within the company. IDEAL Placements is such a great place to work for numerous reasons. First and foremost, the culture of the organisation thrives on valuing the employees which has been my experience so far. The employees here at IDEAL Placements really care about each other, the success of IDEAL Team and there is a healthy team dynamic. Not only do I feel like a valued employee every day, I am inspired by my peers through their example of workmanship.
IDEAL Placements also understands the importance of family, which is of the utmost importance for me as a mum. If an employee needs time off for family emergencies and such, it will happen. You are encouraged to take care of your family. All employees also have access to training in a supportive team environment. Training is available online directly from peers as we go. Everyone is more than happy to assist. Another winning thing in our organisation is that ALL of our senior staff are more than approachable & our senior staff know all our employees by name. I’m proud to be a part of this exceptional organisation.
