Victoria Street in Stanthorpe has been BESTified as BEST Harvest Labour Services (HLS) find residency under the same roof as BEST Employment. But while both offices fall under the BEST title they each have something different to offer the Stanthorpe community.
BEST Harvest Labour Services is a specialist harvest recruitment agency which links people looking for seasonal harvest work in the Granite Belt regions, where growers often have difficulty finding sufficient workers at harvest time. As part of the Harvest Trail, it’s a great opportunity for people travelling around Australia.
BEST Harvest Manager, Linda Clutterbuck, has been part of BEST’s success since obtaining the contract in 2009.
“Our office is available 7 days per week for farmers needing workers. Just give us a call and we will link either the most suitable local workers or backpackers for your seasonal jobs. We guarantee to check peoples work rights within Australia, and will notify growers if we discover anyone working illegally. We have many great farms in the region and surrounds that we send workers to, but are always happy to help new growers as well. BEST HLS is only a phone call away, including out of regular office hours!” Linda said.
“The main difference between BEST HLS and BEST Employment is that we have access to thousands of backpackers on Working Holiday visas that are very keen to work and happy to do even one day at a time, versus locals looking for more long term permanent within the region.”
BEST Employment has held a presence in Stanthorpe for over 15 years providing a range of community and employment services. BEST’s skilled and passionate staff work closely with businesses across all industries to help find them the right fit, while helping local jobseekers find and keep meaningful work.
“We help alleviate your time with our knowledge of local labour market needs,” said Penelope Weatherall, BEST Employment Stanthorpe’s Performance Manager.
“BEST Employment is about solutions and connecting people with supports for employment. Our goal is to help all those who want a job find a job. We provide ongoing employment initiatives designed to increase growth, productivity and retention. Building a prosperous community.”
However, while both BEST sites in Stanthorpe are different they still both represent BEST’s company values.
“In the employment and recruitment industry it isn’t always what you do differently, but about continually striving to be better. Being on-time, respectful, quick to return calls and accessible. Through talking with clients, understanding our industries and knowing our caseloads we are able to identify and meet the needs of both job seekers and employers and match suitable candidates to vacant positions,” said Penny Alliston-Hall, CEO of BEST Employment and BEST Harvest Labour.
You can now find both businesses at 19 Victoria Street in Stanthorpe, Queensland.
