Covid – 19 Best Practices and Initiatives

For our existing or any new Aged / Health care clients - We work closely with the RCSA and together with nearly a 100 other nursing and staffing agencies are part of the Victorian Governments Aged Care Work Force Surge Scheme. Collectively we are working together to provide clinical and non-clinical support to numerous aged care facilities throughout Australia. All of our staff working within this environment hold the correct qualifications are compliant, COVID trained and are being kept up to date in real time as information comes to hand.

For our hospitality clients, I am sure you would agree a lot has changed and we have all had to adapt to this crazy new COVID world. With this in mind and in addition to our standard compliance's, all of our staff are now required to complete online hand hygiene and COVID training modules. 

With every state experiencing different levels of service and restrictions, we just want you to know we have some great staff keen to get out of the house and back on the tools. Nothing has changed and our staff can be booked with little notice for a minimum of 3 hours (4 hours for chefs) or until required!

As some of our recruitment consultants are still working remotely if you are having trouble getting through to us on the usual numbers please see below.
