When advertising positions, write clear job ads that describe the personal qualities and experience you need. See Writing job ads for tips.
Other ideas include:
- Posting your ad on a number of jobs boards – for example, the Australian Government’s Jobsearch allows you to advertise your jobs for free.
- Using Job search to link you to your local employment provider, which can offer free end-to-end recruitment services.
- Contacting a Disability Employment Service provider if you are recruiting a person with a disability. You may also be eligible for the Employment Assistance Fund.
If you live in a remote area, you can contact a Community Development Program provider who can help you manage the costs of employing job seekers in remote areas as well as training employees and screening staff.
The Vocational, Training & Employment Centre provides support to Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander job seekers and new workers. They work with employers, employment services and Indigenous communities to identify jobs and establish training requirements.
The Boosting the Local Care Workforce (BLCW) program offers support for employers who want to talk to a specialist on how to recruit staff. You can find how to grow your workforce or contact a Regional Coordinator directly.
