WorkPac opened a new centre to address healthcare worker shortage in Brisbane. The WorkPac Group officially opened its new HealthCare Business Centre in Milton in December 2015, addressing the national shortage of healthcare workers.
WorkPac recently ranked amongst the world’s top 100 recruitment firms and specialises in healthcare, mining, construction, engineering, and oil and gas recruitment.
With 35 offices throughout Australia, WorkPac is creating a national network that matches sought-after staff to many industries.
The new office was opened in response to increasing demand for professional healthcare staff throughout the Brisbane and southeast Queensland region.
Business HealthCare Centre Manager, said the new office would concentrate on finding people to fill gaps across the health industry, especially in nursing.
“We have a strong contingent of qualified and experienced nurses and we are ready to deliver some much needed relief to healthcare facilities in Brisbane,” she said.
“The industry has seen a shortage for some years and we share their excitement that we can offer dedicated service to help meet the huge need for professional staff across Brisbane and beyond.”
WorkPac has also created innovative software that can monitor and mobilise qualified staff quickly and guarantee critical controls for checking applicants’ qualifications, background and work history.
She said the clever software offers peace of mind for any healthcare business, which most recruitment companies cannot guarantee. The company also conducts medical screening tests for companies that require drug and health screenings.
“We have robust screening and verification processes to ensure that we provide the best staff to meet the high standards our clients expect – we listened to our clients’ priorities and this new software helps us respond to their needs,” she said.
The Business Centre offers a range of additional services including pre-employment medicals, immunisation, walk-in clinic, healthcare training and workers compensation.
