Every successful job placement begins with an understanding of exactly what a job entails, and there’s no better way to get to know a job than through hands-on experience. On the farm, this means getting up close with farming machinery, and learning how to operate it.
This year, our commitment to delivering the right people for every position saw us run our very first Staff Gundy Experience Day in North Callandoon.
Hosted by our Regional Manager Michelle Sleeth, her husband Craig Sleeth and Anthony Smith, the day gave our team an opportunity to get some hands-on experience and learn to operate with the machinery used on our clients’ farms.
With an impressive range of agricultural machinery on site, including excavators weighing up to 30 tonnes, our team had a rare opportunity to sit in the driver’s seat and operate the machinery themselves.
Beyond getting up close and personal with highly sophisticated, industry leading agricultural machinery, the event also included exciting outback experiences such as horse riding and a country cooking session, both of which were a big hit.
After such a memorable experience, all of our staff returned to the Brisbane office with a fresh perspective on the jobs they recruit for and the candidates they screen – and as the day was such a success, we decided to make it an annual event on our staff calendar.
