Come have a sausage with the CVGT team

By Holly Tregenza

THERE'S nothing like finding that perfect employee.

Or that perfect job.

Luckily for job seekers and business owners or managers, employment services provider CVGT has a stellar record achieving both.

Last month the Kyabram team alone placed 15 people into workplaces, and supported them as they stepped out with their new employer. They’re hoping to see this trend continue with the support of the local business community.

It's a great deal for employers, too — not only do they bring on board a keen worker, but they get ongoing support from the team at CVGT and in some cases, government financial incentives to help with the costs associated with hiring and training a new employee.

It really is a win-win.

And next Wednesday is your opportunity to chat to the professional and friendly CVGT team about how you can get involved. They're hosting an open day from 11am to 2pm and are encouraging local employers, business owners, not-for-profit organisations and job seekers to come and have a conversation over a sausage sizzle.

It’s a great opportunity to talk to the team about the programs CVGT provides such as JobActive, Disability Employment Services, Transition to work, Group Training and Parents Next.

CVGT career coach Tamara Allan said connecting people to work and supporting employers through the process delivers results for everyone.

“It's all about finding suitable, ongoing employment,” she said.

“We help overcome barriers that stop people from finding ongoing work — providing licensing opportunities, purchasing uniforms and providing workshops and volunteer opportunities to upskill and empower our job seekers.

“Once they've got the job we also provide ongoing support to all parties involved, which takes the burden off the employer.

“And we've got some ripper people looking for work at the moment, so if you're an employer, now is the time to get in touch.”

She's encouraging anyone who is interested to pop in to the open day — or if you can't make it, anytime during the week.

“Walk in and have a chat with us anytime,” she said.
