Early Learning Placements (ELP) follows a tried and tested recruitment methodology for each and every position we recruit for. This process is undeniably thorough, with the ultimate aim to ensure we gather the detailed information our clients demand when discerning the most suitable candidate within a tight recruitment time frame.

A dedicated recruitment consultant will collect a summary of relevant information including location, size of the centre, breakdown of rooms, which room the role is in, number of children in the room, number and specific qualifications of other staff within the room, key attractions of the role, any specific challenges associated with the position or the centre.

ELP’s practice includes onsite centre visits to ensure the quality and safety of the centres we align ourselves with. It also allows us to be armed with the ability to explain the centre environment and team culture to potential staff, while developing professional working relationships with the on-site staff members.

Our in-house Recruitment Management System enables our team to conduct quick, efficient and specific searches of our candidate database according to your criteria.

We utilise a variety of mediums to communicate your role to suitable talent. These may include radio, University fairs, TAFE presentations, private college presentations, industry mapping, headhunting, email and SMS marketing campaigns, and job advertisements to multiple job boards.
