The five most common misconceptions about Skill Hire

The five most common misconceptions about Skill Hire

There are a number of things which people commonly think about Skill Hire, but not all of them are true! Let’s take a look through the most common misconceptions that face our company.

#1 Skill Hire is just a recruiter…

While yes, we are a recruitment company, we aren’t just a recruitment company! Skill Hire is a business with a number of varied business streams, from employment, training, apprenticeships, traineeships all the way through to delivering government services, we pride ourselves on being able to offer those from all walks of life the opportunity at finding gainful employment. Whether you are someone just graduating high school and wondering “what’s next?”, a skilled worker wanting to expand their horizons or someone seeking some extra work, our team works to suit your unique needs.

So next time you, or someone you know, needs anything employment or training related, Skill Hire is your solution.

#2 What is Group Training?

You would be forgiven for thinking that Group Training is exactly what the name suggests, training of large groups, but actually, Group Training is the technical description of facilitating Apprenticeships and Traineeships. Next time you see Group Training, remember to not think of quantity but instead think quality. Skill Hire prides itself in facilitating quality apprentices with real-world experience in a variety of industries.

#3 Skill Hire is just your local office

As a company who prides itself on its ties with the community, our clients and candidates may think of us as just a local business, but in fact, with a large presence across WA, SA and Victoria, we are able to cater to the needs of businesses across the nation.

So next time your business needs a hand on a national scale, Skill Hire is the solution.

#4 As an RTO and GTO, If I send my apprentice to you, won’t you try and convince them to join Skill Hire instead?

Absolutely not! While we have a variety of business streams, naturally there exists a crossover between the offerings of each. Rest assured, that when you send an apprentice to receive training at one of our Registered Training Organisations, we are focused on providing the best training we can for them, we aren’t focused on competing for your apprentices!

Whether it be high risk training through Nara training, or leadership training through Business Leadership Centre, when you send us your apprentice for further training, you know that they will make their way back to you armed with industry relevant and accredited knowledge!

#5 Skill Hire is just for the construction industry.

Well if you think this, you aren’t wrong. However, did you know that we have experience in a number of different industries? Whether it’s retail employment, disability training, hospitality recruitment or anything else you can think of, chances are, Skill Hire can help provide your solution!
