Harvest Industrial, represented by Amy Cotton, Associate Consultant, place supervisors, trades and operators both permanently and through labour hire.
Last quarter we worked on a major project, the volume recruitment assignment of full time, process operators for a major hazard facility. A job of choice by process operators within and outside of our region. We were inundated with over 250 candidates and our brief, for the first time, was extremely broad from our client. We successfully brought this to a close with seven key hires at our client’s site. We also continued to place labour hire process workers for companies in manufacturing and agricultural sector.
