What's in it for Employers?

If you are looking for staff, IDEAL Placements can find you work ready job seekers matched to your requirements – fast!

For many years IDEAL Placements only provided employment services for people with disability but now we provide much more.

Our experienced team works across the Mackay, Sarina, Proserpine, Cannonvale and Bowen regions and can help you navigate each participant placement including on the job support or extra training when needed.

Our workforce is made up of local people, who don’t come with relocation expenses and are very keen to work. Many of our placements have held jobs for many years and have been a great asset to their employers.

If you are interested in exploring this further, give us a call on (07) 4957 8177.

We will discuss with you the requirements of your job vacancy and find you the right person to suit your needs.

All of our services to you are provided for free.

In certain circumstances, financial assistance packages are available as an incentive to employ that person, at times this can be as high as $20,000.00 depending on the employee.

Funding for workplace modifications may also be available if needed.

Our purpose is to enable better lives, and we’re looking forward to discussing how we can enhance your business and your team.

If after discussing this with us you decide to give it a go, what next?

We’ll organise interviews for you recommending only the people that we think will do the job for you.

We’ll advise appropriate pay rates and working hours and if you find somebody suitable, we then help you with providing on the job training. In other words, we just don’t leave you with the employee.

This of course means less pressure on your staff and management to provide training.

All this is designed to make it easy and inexpensive for you to hire our job seekers.  With IDEAL Placements, your regular costs of advertising, screening and interviewing unsuitable staff will be capably handled by our Staff. We do all that for you, and organise if applicable, the financial assistance packages involved with your new employee.

How successful have we been?

Well over 3000 local employers have used our services since 1995. More importantly though, is how happy employers like you have been.

IDEAL Placements has developed a solid reputation as a professional organisation delivering a quality service. This is confirmed by our Quality Assurance Certification.
