In the midst of COVID lockdown, many businesses were downsizing, working remotely and forced to find alternate growth strategies. Flexi Personnel was no different, but also seized the opportunity to open up a new office in Geelong, part of the long term growth plan for the business, increasing it’s branches to 4: Laverton, Melbourne City, Campbellfield and the new Geelong branch.
Now working from offices on Pakington Street, Geelong West, the Geelong Branch offers the full suite of services to local businesses. This includes Permanent Recruitment, Temporary Recruitment, Labour Hire and Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO).
Headed up by Business Manager Simon Webster working with local Recruitment Trainee Chris Kerry, Flexi are already working collaboratively with Geelong businesses in the Construction, Textile, Food, Engineering and Landscaping industries. Says Simon: “One of the things I love about Geelong is that it still has a country town feel but very buoyant industries, regardless of the impact of COVID. Naturally, Retail and Hospitality industries were greatly affected the impact of COVID and are still recovering but the Geelong market is bouncing back quickly. We are finding that Geelong is a lifestyle choice with the beaches and the location is not too far from Melbourne. The Development at Armstrong Creek is booming. You have pretty much got everything here that you need.”
Simon has over 13 years of experience working in the Recruitment Industry across Labour hire, Industrial, Manufacturing and Construction Industries. He has been a valued part of the Flexi team for over 10 years and loves what he does. “The point of difference with Flexi is that we are a family owned business. We don’t treat people as numbers. I know what it’s like to be out of work and always bear that in mind when dealing with job seekers. As a business we take the time to get to know our clients and our candidates. It’s the personal touch.”
Flexi Personnel are currently hiring a number of roles in the Geelong region including Trades, Production Managers, Admin, Accounts, Labourers, Quality Managers, Safety Coordinators and Part Time Admin.
