How we can support you through COVID-19

posted by Lindsey Hobson 19/03/2020 0 comments
Good Afternoon,

I sat down with the team at Brook Recruitment earlier this week and reflected on current circumstances in relation to COVID-19. We are monitoring the situation very carefully and for now, our office will remain open with flexible work arrangements available for the team.

With that said, they arrive at the office with smiling faces each day, ready to help you. Their resilience and commitment to all of our clients and candidates has blown me away.

While there are some big questions in the world right now with very few answers, this constant flux is bringing around a new norm for the foreseeable future.  This means businesses like yours and mine are looking for new strategies to support one another during this time.

Here are a number of different ways we can immediately support you, your team and your business:
Virtual TEMP support in alignment with your flexible work arrangements
We are running virtual interviews and offering virtual support where required. If this works for us and so many Australian businesses then it could work for you too. Ask us how we can help you set up virtual support in your business, in alignment with your flexible work arrangements.

 Flexible start dates
If your business has the need for a new team member but you aren’t sure when the dust will settle, we will continue our search for the right person who has flexibility around the start date, while the situation continues to evolve and unfold. 

 In-house TEMP and casual staff
Maybe your office is staying open but you are short-staffed during these uncertain times? We have qualified, professional, and hard-working pool of temporary and casual staff who are ready to jump into your business, on-site, exactly where it’s needed.

 Specialist online discussion groups 
We are looking to facilitate virtual round tables with up to 10 business owners and people in authoritative positions in each – all 100% relevant to each other so we can problem solve how to overcome the challenges we face as individual businesses, together. The first is to be held on Wednesday the 25th of March in the morning. Exact time to be confirmed. Please email Lindsey onlindsey@brookrecruitment.com.au if you are interested in joining.

 Career coaching
We recognise this time is difficult for everyone. With over 30 years’ combined career and recruitment experience, and a qualified coach amongst the ranks, we are making ourselves available for anyone who is in need of reliable, third-party support and advice during this time. For your confidential chat, call 03 9500 2797.

 Support for team leaders, managers, and candidates
Amongst it all, we feel it’s valuable that you know you have a reliable and safe place to get help with your team, recruiting and HR requirements. At any time you can pick up the phone and call me personally on 0413 886 239. 
As each day brings new changes, we will continue to evolve to ensure we provide the best support to you during this time. 

Best Regards,
Vanessa Fajnkind
