Service Solutions

HOBAN Recruitment knows the importance of flexibility. Fluctuating demands and unexpected peaks require a workforce that can adapt quickly.

We offer labour-hire solutions to support you during high-demand periods and troughs. Our extensive talent pool allows us to mobilise skilled staff at short notice, ensuring you have the workforce you need when needed.

By retaining staff outside of peak periods we eliminate the need for retraining and minimise disruptions to your operations.

HOBAN Success Stories

Medical Manufacturer

In an environment that requires extreme accuracy, attention to detail and physical demands, our medical manufacturing client needed help attracting and retaining great team members. As part of the recruitment strategy, HOBAN designed a simulation of their “clean room” assembly line in our Development Centre to assess a candidate’s ability to perform in that environment.

All candidates complete a manual handling assessment where their physical lifting capabilities and techniques are evaluated, as well as skills testing to ensure high levels of attention to detail, learning capability and the ability to follow detailed instructions.

For personnel who displayed desirable attributes such as a great attitude, eagerness to work, and reliability but who did not possess the skills, HOBAN’s trainer develops a comprehensive training program to upskill.

In what started as a backup supplier arrangement in 2013, HOBAN now holds a national relationship, extending their services to other business areas, including head office and customer service personnel.

Traditional Manufacturing

Due to fluctuating demand, our manufacturing client requires a labour-hire provider that can assist in their peaks and troughs and with short timeframes. The on-call casuals on site vary from 10–70 per day across various site locations/departments.

HOBAN's service delivery team proactively recruits qualified staff who are pre-inducted and ready to work immediately in response to client operational peaks.

With our database and reach, HOBAN mobilises skilled staff at short notice when they have increased requirements unexpectedly. We retain staff during troughs to eliminate retraining by rostering them at other locations so that they remain available when required.

Monthly management reporting provides details of usage metrics and hiring requirements, including hours worked, standard time and overtime usage by department.

Since 1965, HOBAN Recruitment has been creating innovative recruitment solutions.
