Five Star Springvale site – what’s their secret?

We think we’ve found the secret sauce to the Five Star success of our Springvale team – all three jobactive employment consultants were once Jobfind job seekers!

Cat Creaney, Michael Yuin and Leon Ton say their experiences of finding themselves out of work has given them a strong empathy with the job seekers who visit the Jobfind Springvale site.

Cat, Business Manager for Springvale, found herself out of work 10 years ago and became a client of Direct Recruitment, now Jobfind.

“I was a single mum on Centrelink with a lot of debt. But I really wanted to work so I was referred to the Oakleigh site to see if they could help me get into work. I found myself being offered a job there where I was helping others who were looking for work.

“I can really relate to how job seekers are feeling and share my story with them so they can see that there is a light at the end of the tunnel,” she said.

A wildly passionate St Kilda follower (yes, we’ll forgive her), Cat’s enthusiasm and energy for her AFL team is also reflected in the way she supports both job seekers and her team.

Michael and Leon agree that having Cat as a role model – including her well known work ethic – has contributed to their performance in delivering a five-star service.

Neither Michael nor Leon had a background in employment services. Little did they know that they so impressed our consultants that they were offered jobs with us.

For three quarters in a row the team, including Recruitment Consultant, Marie Prosper, and Administration Assistant, Anthea Lau, have hit five stars making it the top performer in the district.

CEO of Jobfind, Anthony Parsons, congratulated the team on their outstanding achievements.

“We are fortunate to have such an amazing team in Springvale. They have always shown an unswerving commitment to helping people find work in an area of interest to them,” he said.
