What is Greenhouse Careers Day?
Our Careers Day is a unique opportunity, that promises employers an opportunity to meet fantastic employees / trainees and vice versa. We are bringing together the best Childcare Providers in the Northern Suburbs and fantastic prospective employees for one event, to allow them an informal interview process and the opportunity to form mutually-beneficial professional relationships.
How does it work?
Prospective employees interested in a career in the Early Education and Care profession are invited to attend our event and meet with prospective employers in a relaxed setting. We ask you to complete an Application via Survey Monkey and will then consider your application and references before you attend. We then provide your information to those Prospective Employers with whom you are a good fit and they can then chat to you on the day to see if they agree. If your Prospective Employer agrees, they can then arrange another time for a formal interview or book in a trial to see how you go in a real Childcare setting. Very exciting!
You are encouraged to bring along copies of your resume to leave with Childcare providers and a portfolio of certificates or samples of work you feel may give you the edge over others. A Greenhouse Education Team Member may contact you and ask you some questions or request a copy of your resume ahead of time. That's just so we know a little more about who is coming and where you might be a good fit.
Don't have anything like that yet?
Don't worry! As some of the positions we have to fill are traineeships for people just starting out, we understand you may not have much in the way of a professional portfolio or work experience. You need to gain your CHC30113 Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care to get started in this industry.
If you are successful in being selected for one of the Traineeships, you will be enrolled as part of accepting the position. This Traineeship offers practical and hands-on experience through paid full-time employment while you study. Working with Children Checks and Police Clearance will need to be obtained upon being appointed to any traineeships. Greenhouse Education staff will assist you with this if necessary.
What is in it for Prospective Employees?
A paid job while studying! It doesn't get much better than that.
What is in it for Prospective Employers?
As Employers, you will have access to viable trainees and candidates on the day that we have already reviewed and vetted for you. These candidates will be presented to you if they are a good fit for what you have communicated you are looking for to us. We only want people who are passionate. serious about Education and ready to take that next step in their career. You both have the opportunity to meet and greet in a relaxed setting, with plenty of opportunity to organise a more formal interview or trial at a later date if you both feel it is a good fit.
When and where will the Careers Day take place?
For sake of convenience, we will be running two separate sessions on Thursday 20 September.
SESSION ONE: 11.00am - 1.00pm
SESSION TWO: 6.00pm - 8.00pm
Both sessions will be held at the Key Largo Professional Centre located at 61 Ocean Keys Boulevard, Clarkson. We will be in the Greenhouse Education Training Room, which is on Level 1.
