  • Capability in coaching and developing our clients to positively address work pathways.  You believe and embody a "work first approach"!
  • Ability to confidently generate leads from a "cold call" and turn them into employment - sales experience would be a distinct advantage.
  • Strong networks within the community
  • A passionate, committed and ethical approach to placing people into work.
  • Strong communication and negotiation skills
  • Ability to identify and sell a person's strengths and abilities and find solutions "outside the square"
  • Resilient demeanour with a positive outlook – an absolute ‘must have’
