Job opportunities with Asuria

Cynthia Jennings, a Community Engagement Officer with Asuria.

There’s a new employment services provider coming to town, aiming to transform the lives of Pakenham and they’re looking for readers of the Pakenham Gazette 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 Pakenham.

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

Job applicants don’t even need to have any experience in the employment services industry to be part of this 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, or Excel.

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

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, 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.”

On what people in Pakenham can get out of a career with Asuria, Cynthia says: “You’ll know when you’ve found your dream job, 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.”
