Asuria is seeking staff to help people find meaningful employment

There’s a new employment services provider coming to town, aiming to transform the lives of Sydneysiders, and they’re looking for City Hub readers to join them.

Asuria has been helping people to reach their job and career goals for over 25 years, and from July, they’re going to be bringing their expertise to job seekers in Sydney.

To make that happen, they’re opening up their doors to people interested in taking up new roles as Job Coaches/Mentors/Indigenous Mentors, and support staff – helping people to find and stay in work that matters.

Job applicants don’t even need to have any experience to get started in the employment services industry, with training provided to help them become part of a new wave of first-class Job Coaches.

What makes a successful Asuria Job Coach/Mentor/Indigenous Mentor is a combination of empathy, the ability to build relationships, a commitment to excellent customer service, and everyday office skills, with things like Microsoft Office, Word, or Excel.

More than anything though, Asuria is looking for people with a passion for helping others.

In exchange, the company promises ongoing support for its staff, combined with job security and the ability to reach their job and career dreams by helping others to reach theirs.

Cynthia Jennings, a Community Engagement Officer, says of her experience with Asuria: “At Asuria we’re all a part of something which we call Enterprising Heart, which really sums up what it’s like to be part of the company.”

When it comes to what being an Asuria Job Coach/Mentor/Indigenous Mentor, or Community Engagement Officer is all about, Cynthia says: “The way I help participants discover their dream roles is by really sitting down and getting to know them, building a rapport with them, and establishing trust and understanding.

“As Job Coaches, when we’re able to do that and really get to the heart of who people are, what they’re interested in, and what they love to do, that’s when we get to make a real difference in people’s lives.”

On what people in Sydney can get out of a career with Asuria, Cynthia says: “You’ll know when you’ve found your dream job, when you’re able to have fun with your team, when you feel that support behind you, and when you turn up every day wanting to put your best foot forward for the people you’re there to help. I’m very lucky because I’ve been able to find that with Asuria.”

Job opportunities with Asuria are open now. So if you’re interested in seeing if you have what it takes to be an Asurian, helping the people in your community to find and stay in work that matters, visit www.asuria.com.au/careers.
