ABOUT YOU | Clients Looking for Work
Have you experienced an injury or illness and are finding it difficult to return to work? We provide a range of services to help you get back to work.
We are current active members of the Sunshine Coast HR Network Group as coordinated by the University of the Sunshine Coast. This has been of significant benefit to our ability to source host employment positions for our clients as well as ensure we stay abreast with current trends in recruitment and employment. Our job seeking services are therefore current and realistic in the local labour market, ensuring we remain leaders in the field of re-deployment, particularly for our injured works returning to a different vocation.
Transferable Skills Analysis
A Transferable Skills Analysis is an assessment of a worker’s employment history to determine what other potential employment opportunities the worker may be suited to. A Transferable Skills Analysis is conducted if the worker’s previous position no longer exists in the local job market or the worker can no longer perform their past position (e.g. due to injury). Potential employment pathways are considered based on the skills, attributes and experience gained through the worker’s employment history that can be transferred into a new role.
Host Employment / Work Trials
Host programs are fully funded by the insuring body (e.g. WorkCover QLD/CTP schemes) and aid the worker in gaining practical experience and training in a new job. Host programs also aid in increasing the worker’s return to work physical fitness and allow the worker an opportunity to demonstrate to a potential employer the worker’s ability to do the job. There are also benefits for employers to Host a worker through a Host program. Read about our great successes….
Many injured workers sustain injuries that prevent them from returning to their pre-injury position or workplace which results in them seeking employment elsewhere. Often the worker is unable to identify work options and will require a Vocational Assessment or Transferable Skills Analysis to assist with determining clear vocational goals. Once a clear goal is established they may then require job seeking assistance. Our Employment Consultants are able to provide the most current and localized job seeking assistance available. With local provider knowledge they can assist the worker to seek for alternative employment as well as provide motivation, resumes, interview skills, links to local agencies and how to locate most jobs available in the labour market.
Resume & Interview Preparation
Work Rehab provides Resume and Interview Preparation support as part of our Employment Services. The aim of resume and interview preparation is to educate clients on resume compilation and construction, and tips on how to conduct themselves at an interview with a potential employer, including things what to ask and how to present themselves.
Resume assistance is aimed at building the worker’s resume to specifically detail the past work history and the worker’s achievements to match the individual selection criteria of the position being applied for. As the job market is competitive, we hope to aid in making our client’s stand out for job selection.
Interview Preparation is aimed at aiding the worker in researching the workplace and job selection criteria; assisting with compiling information that can answer questions the Company interviewing might ask; and dressing and conducting themselves appropriately for the interview specific to workplace regulations.
Work Rehab is now able to assess your current qualifications and determine what is required for you to obtain you qualifications in a different or similar field.
