THERE’S a new employment services provider coming to town, aiming to transform the lives of Tasmanians – and they’re looking for Eastern Shore Sun readers to join them.
Asuria has been helping people reach their job and career goals for more than 25 years, and from July they’re going to be bringing their expertise to job seekers in Hobart.
To make that happen, they’re opening up their doors to people on the Eastern Shore interested in taking up new roles as Job Coaches/Mentors or 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 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 and 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 own job and career dreams by helping others to reach theirs.
“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,” Asuria Community Engagement Officer Cynthia Jennings said.
“One of the things I love most about the role is the teamwork, the supportive environment, and the culture that everyone helps to create.
“To know that we’ve all got each other’s back is one of the things that makes this such a special team to be a part of.”
Cynthia said being an Asuria Job Coach/Mentor or Community Engagement Officer is all about building relationships.
“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,” she said.
“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.”
Cynthia said Tasmanians can get a lot out of a career with Asuria.
“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,” she said.
“I’m very lucky because I’ve been able to find that with Asuria.”
