RCSA’s ‘Working Sooner’ campaign promotes Australian JobAgencies

A new campaign launched by RCSA last month is highlighting the vital role of Job Agencies in accelerating economic recovery by getting people into jobs and helping business grow. Celebrating the work that each of us in the recruitment and staffing industry do every day, the campaign is using television, radio, print and digital platforms to promote job agencies and their role in connecting Australians with employment as the economy emerges from the COVID-19 crisis.

Finding your passion is key to success in recruitment

By Mary Savova 2020 RCSA Rising Star Award Winner 2020 has been a rollercoaster to say the least, but one highlight has been winning the 2020 RCSA Rising Star award. These awards show that the effort we put in doesn’t go unnoticed, which is a really great feeling. I wasn’t expecting to make it to finalist, let alone win, so I am extremely proud to be recognised in our industry. Recruitment isn’t just a job to me, it gives me a sense of purpose and is something I’m genuinely passionate about. I give it my all, and perhaps that’s what set me apart. I know that can be said for a lot of people but I really pride myself on efficiency and desire to continuously upskill. I do have big goals and exp

As many of us know, working in multi-site recruitment businesses often means being assigned to a branch/office and often to a team. You might have geographical boundaries and, in each branch, consultants are dedicated to their portfolio of clients. Since the onset of COVID our traditional structure has been challenged.

Importantly, our clients are embracing this concept too. We are no longer as constrained by a client’s perception o

Building resilience in times of extraordinary change

Motivational speaker, adventurer, mountain climber - Warren Macdonald is many things but most of all he is a survivor. In 1997 Warren set out to make the gruelling climb to the top of Australia's spectacular Mount Bowen. But what had begun as a two-day adventure suddenly turned into a nightmare when Warren found himself lying in a creek bed, both his legs pinned by a giant boulder. Two days later he was rescued, only to undergo the amputation of both legs at mid-thigh. The accident on North Queensland’s Hinchinbrook Island changed his life forever. But just 10 months later, he climbed Tasmania’s Cradle Mountain. Then in 2003 he scaled Mt Kilimanjaro. That’s where Warren’s story starts. It’s
