Early Learning Placements want to share our thoughts, expertise and experiences with you. We hope you enjoy….
We all know with the changes in the early childhood industry over the past 5 years, the legislative requirements to have “X” number of qualified staff per “X” of children, low industry salaries, a HUGE increase in the number of new centres being opened, an increase in Generation “Y” expectations and a lack of professionalism in the industry (sorry, yes….I said it), it has all contributed to a candidate short market. So as an employer, what can you do different to attract the industries most highly sort after candidates?
It is important to take an active role in caring for the environment and contribute to a sustainable future. Some ways this can be achieved is by minimising waste, reducing energy and water consumption and using fewer toxins.
Before entering into the negotiation process, it is important to identify to what level you the candidate will happily accept for the role. Negotiation is not a case of trying to see “how much you can get out of your potential employer”, negotiation is about reaching a mutually rewarding outcome for both the job applicant and the employer. Candidates must be clear on what they are seeking from a role / employer and know the point in which they are prepared to walk away from the job. Negotiation is not a game. When you enter into negotiation of salary & conditions, both parties must be prepared that at any time, the other party may walk away or simply withdraw the offer.
