Christmas Visits | Weekly Wrap-Up

Christmas Visits | Weekly Wrap-Up

With only two full working weeks to go before most head off for Christmas celebrations finishing up on Friday 21st December this year, there is a lot to cram in. We are recruiting for a broad range of roles (see below).  Some of these roles will be all tied up before the Xmas break and prove to be a great early Xmas present for a successful candidate and fortunate client. Once again this can be a great time well spent…

Christmas Countdown | Weekly Wrap-Up

Christmas Countdown | Weekly Wrap-Up

Only 3 full working weeks until most of us turn our focus to family, holidays and Christmas celebrations amongst other things. Most organisations seem to be unofficially or officially finishing up the calendar year from EOB Friday 21st December. Organisations are either completely closing for the holiday break or operating, (as we are), on a skeleton staff until the first working day back in the New Year, Wednesday 2nd January 2019. And while focus may be on the wane where…

An Ethical Conference | Weekly Wrap-Up

An Ethical Conference | Weekly Wrap-Up

Off the back of a couple of great days exhibiting at this years’ Ethical Jobs NFP People conference and making so many great old and new connections this week has been truly action packed as we race towards the Christmas holiday season. Some of the key take-aways from the few sessions that we got to sit in on included recognition in competition within and outside of the NFP sector continues to grow with approximately 54,000 charities, 20,000 social enterprises and…

Articles of Interest | Weekly Wrap-Up

An enormous thank you to the RR team for holding the fort while I had a ruptured Appendix removed during Cup week. All back on deck albeit a little slower as I ramp back up so thanks for your patience everyone. Last week Claudia celebrated a birthday and Sam wrote a very timely blog dealing with silly season party etiquette. I also got to attend the MacKillop Family Services annual public meeting which continues to get better year-on-year. A true…

Office Christmas Party Etiquette

Office Christmas Party Etiquette

It is that wonderful time of year again, when the weather heats up (in the Southern Hemisphere anyway), the presents come out and the drinks start flowing. It is the season of the Christmas Party and as Recruiters we have been to our fair share. However it’s very easy to get carried away so it’s worth a reminder about the rules of etiquette when you’re attending those fabulous Christmas Parties. Appropriate Attire This can be a little tricky for the…

A Short Week | Weekly Wrap-Up

A Short Week | Weekly Wrap-Up

It was a short week last week in Melbourne with the Cup Day Public Holiday on Tuesday and it felt like most of the city took the Monday off as well. Naturally the weather was crazy with torrential rain, thunder and hail storms and just a hint of sunshine for the big race on Tuesday. Matilda won the sweep in our office with Susie coming a close second. During the week, some of the team attended a Recruitment Pop-Up event…

Keeping Your Brand Safe | Weekly Wrap-Up

Keeping Your Brand Safe | Weekly Wrap-Up

Australia’s unemployment rate dropped from 5.3% to 5% last month (September). It is at what the Reserve Bank of Australia consider ‘full employment’.  For all organisations recruiting in this market, organisational brand has never been more important when attracting and securing people.  It is a competitive market. Company culture, values, career development, location, office and any benefits all play a part to sway talent to join a team. Many organisations put so much time effort and money into their brand…

Connections That Count | Weekly Wrap-Up

Connections That Count | Weekly Wrap-Up

Congratulations to Sacred Heart Mission for another successful Heart of St Kilda concert held last Tuesday evening at the iconic Palais Theatre. A great line-up of talented performers brilliantly hosted by the very entertaining Brian Nankervis. Last week also saw what will be the final CTC event for 2018. Fully subscribed, 10 very different and accomplished professionals met for the first time. After some trial and error we have finally landed on a great new venue that works well after…

AI in Recruitment | Weekly Wrap-Up

AI in Recruitment | Weekly Wrap-Up

AI is increasingly creeping into our everyday experience and this is certainly the case in recruitment. Clever technology is slowly replacing what was a function formerly completed by a person. Typically this tech is replacing what has been volume, basic, repetitive and time consuming tasks but a necessary and perhaps initial part of a process.  I remember being at a high profile restaurant not that long ago,  and when I posted this fact on social media together with the restaurant’s…

Interview Insights

Interview Insights

Interviewing for a role can be an extremely daunting process, so it is no wonder that a lot of people’s nerves get the better of them. The team at Rusher Rogers always strive to make candidates feel as comfortable as possible in an interview, as we all know the pressure that is on someone to do well in this situation. We have put together some interview questions that the Rusher Rogers Consultants often use during their interviews and why, in…

Mental Health Week | Weekly Wrap-Up

Mental Health Week | Weekly Wrap-Up

Last week marked Mental Health week (7-13th October). This, as you are probably aware, is an annual national event which aims to improve community awareness and interest in mental health and well-being.  Awareness of mental health particularly in the workplace is for many organisations top of mind with dedicated and established well-being and support programs in place. Employee welfare has never been more important not only from a duty of care point of view but also from a talent acquisition…

Bridging The Super Shortfall | Weekly Wrap-Up

Bridging The Super Shortfall | Weekly Wrap-Up

I read a very interesting article in last weekend’s Age Newspaper by Nigel Gladstone and Linda Morris. It primarily dealt with an increasingly and alarming dilemma that many women find themselves facing after their personal circumstances have changed. That is, the essential need to find secure and ongoing employment at a time that many may be considering retirement. Women are leading the charge back into the workforce to bridge their superannuation shortfall. Retirement is not necessarily an option for many…

Finals Week | Weekly Wrap-Up

Finals Week | Weekly Wrap-Up

Everyone had footy finals fever in Melbourne last week! Our lovely temp team were busy delivering some delicious cupcakes to all of our working temps in honour of the two Grand Final teams! Thanks to Cupcake Central for making these delicious morsels! There was a mixture of support in the Rusher Rogers office, with half the office going for Collingwood and the other half going for the West Coast Eagles. What a nail biter of a game! As we draw nearer to the end…

Workshops | Weekly Wrap-Up

Workshops | Weekly Wrap-Up

This week our team has discussed even further, our plans for putting together helpful Workshops for those getting back into the workforce, or looking to change careers but don’t know where to start. As we are new to the Workshop scene, Claudia met with Anita, a Confidence & Performance Coach to discuss the best ways of approaching this to provide the most value to those who need it. More details to come on this, so keep your eyes peeled! Next…

The Art of Professional Communication

The Art of Professional Communication

You are constantly being assessed by Recruiters, whether it is your communication over the phone, via email or even via text message. You should use the same professional approach regardless of the method of communication. Recruiters will often send a follow up email or text message if unable to get through to a candidate on the phone, so it is important that your response is professional and clear. This blog outlines the ways that you should be communicating with your…

Such an eventful week. Wound up and placed a lot of roles with a whole raft of new perm roles coming through the door. A monumental week for one of our long term clients, Sacred Heart Mission who managed the monumental task of raising the final $Million dollars for their amazing capital campaign for the benefit of those in our ‘hood who experience homelessness. They knocked it out of the park this week so well done team #oneheartonehome Current Permanent…

The Privilege of Partnership | Weekly Wrap-Up

The Privilege of Partnership | Weekly Wrap-Up

It is so good to be recruiting in a strong market. The permanent market continues to boom as organisations across both the NFP and commercial sectors have confidence in hiring people on an on-going basis. It is great to be a key partner in that growth as we not only recruit to replace former employees, but recruit for growth, as organisations expand their workforce. 50% of the roles that we have been recruiting for have been newly created, additional roles…

Goodbye Winter | Weekly Wrap-Up

Goodbye Winter | Weekly Wrap-Up

Goodbye Winter, Hello Spring!! Certainly a big week if you live in Melbourne as we share this most liveable of cities with 5 million residents. A massive milestone for us but still a small city by many global standards but just big enough for us. Some exciting construction developments on our own patch as we (finally) settle on some interior structure, building a couple of interview rooms and a ‘reception’ area that is a little less open than it has…

Mindfulness | Weekly Wrap-Up

Just as well we were able to start the week with Sister Shivani… seriously what a week. I can highly recommend her ability to calm a room as 100% of the attendees can attest to early on a Monday morning. She had us captivated as we collectively tackled ‘overthinking’ at 7:45am. The week continued to improve for those of us getting on with the business of keeping the wheels of industry moving in-spite of all the who-ha going on in…

Women in Business | Weekly Wrap-Up

A big thank you goes out to Angie Bui of VicSuper for her invitation to Business Week 2018 and the Women in Business series luncheon and expo. We got to listen to the inspirational high achiever, Nova Peris OAM and walked away with the clear message that anything is possible when you put your mind to it.  Just the sort of stuff that you need mid-week. In case you missed them we posted a couple of great blogs during the…
