Apprenticeships & Traineeships

Start building a skilled workforce for the future by employing apprentices and trainees today.

Group Training is an employment and training arrangement whereby an organisation such as Skillinvest employs apprentices and trainees under a training and employment contract, and places them with host employers for as long as they need them.

This model is the easiest way to take on apprentices and trainees. You get all the advantages of carefully selected apprentices and trainees, short or long term, without the hassle of paperwork and payroll. We take care of the paperwork for wages, allowances, WorkCover, superannuation and trade school arrangements while the host employer allows time off to attend any off-the-job training that may be required.

Benefits to the host employer:

  • Skillinvest makes it as simple as possible for businesses to take on apprentices and trainees without the worries of long-term contracts.
  • With your input, we carefully select the right apprentice or trainee for you.
  • We arrange the training provider and obtain regular progress reports.
  • We handle the paperwork and payroll.
  • We provide ongoing support to make sure everything runs smoothly, including three-monthly performance reviews.
  • Businesses have the flexibility to meet peak workloads and seasonal variations.

We can also support your business to host a school-based apprentice using the same arrangements.

We can provide a no obligation quotation.

Recruitment

You need the best, so hire the best!

Skillinvest offers employers a comprehensive service to recruit permanent or fixed-term staff.

We connect employers with suitably qualified applicants from our comprehensive database supported by our proven recruitment methodology.  Alternatively we can coordinate a broader recruitment campaign tailored to your needs.

With a holistic approach to the recruitment process, we’ll also identify possible training and professional development opportunities that can help build your team to be the best it can be.

Skillinvest supports all stages of the recruitment process:

  • coordinating an advertising campaign, if required
  • handling all enquiries
  • coordinating the application process
  • shortlisting against your criteria
  • arranging interviews
  • referee checks on your behalf, if required
  • notifying all candidates of the outcome

Skillinvest offers a choice of two recruitment packages:

Premium is designed to provide an all inclusive package for employers requiring a recruitment service that will attract the best available person for their business. This package provides higher levels of candidate screening and referee checks on your behalf, if required. Premium is a certain time saver for you and your key personnel. You will only be dealing with candidates who have passed tight screening standards.

Professional is a fully tailored recruitment package aimed at placing professionals from local, interstate and international markets. It is aimed to be discrete and fulfil the specific needs of your business. It is expected that these are one off long-term positions which may take some time and input to fill.

With each package optional extra services are available to employers.

We can provide a no obligation quotation.
