Being invited for an on-site orientation and induction means you have successfully completed our initial selection and screening process, you are now ready to be assigned work in line with our employment terms and conditions.
Most of our work sites require specific, induction and on-site orientation. This is due to various on-boarding safety, quality and security policies that vary from assignment to assignment. Please note that being inducted does not mean or imply guarantee of work.
On-Site orientations allows you the opportunity to assess the role and environment you will be assigned to work at. They are designed to provide you with as much information as possible, making your transition into the assignment safe, and easy to understand.
If you are asked to attend an induction at a company you have worked at previously, YOU MUST INFORM US IMMEDIATELY PRIOR TO GOING ON SITE.
While being inducted, your attitude, presentation, contribution and general approach to the role/environment will be evaluated by the induction coordinator. You are also part of our team and representing OzStaff. It is therefore important to take this process very seriously and observe the following;
- note the date, time, location, contact person and meeting point for the induction
- arrive for inductions 5 minutes prior to the scheduled start time.
- allow between 1-2 hours for the entire process
- You have been matched to the site where the induction is being held, based on information you supplied during the application process
- Make sure to understand the requirements of the role and shift prior to attending the induction.
- If you are asked which role or shift you applied for, NEVER VARY from the information you supplied on your initial application to work with OzStaff
- Changing your work choices (i.e. shift, role you want to work, availability etc), at inductions will reflect poorly on you and may lead to no work being offered
- If you need to change your work choices, please contact your OzStaff representative
