At MEGT, we’re proud of the personalised service our local consultants can provide. Consultants just like Dale Scott, our Industry Employment Consultant from Ringwood, Victoria.
As an Industry Employment Consultant, Dale’s role is to provide mentoring to employers, apprentices, and trainees to assist the apprentice or trainee to complete their qualification.
His role includes visiting the workplace at least every eight weeks as well as managing and resolving any day-to-day challenges that may arise.
How long have you worked here?
I’ve been with MEGT for 7.5 years now.
What are three words that best describe your experience at MEGT this year?
Challenging but rewarding!
What trends do you see in your field?
I see our Host Employers work hard to specialise as they endeavour to carve out niche markets. This can create a challenge in ensuring our apprentices are well rounded in their chosen trade area, but makes it more rewarding when we place the right apprentice with the right employer.
What has impressed you so far this year?
The increase in service-related industries, particularly those servicing the domestic market, has created a more competitive market so there has been a change in the client base of our Host Employers.
This means our Host Employers are just becoming even more professional and meeting even higher standards to stay ahead in these competitive markets, which has been very impressive to see.
What do you believe is the benefit of using MEGT for recruiting apprentices and trainees?
The experience and knowledge of MEGT staff is exceptional. Often I find Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) seek our knowledge and provide positive feedback on our apprentice and trainee recruitment services.
What do you particularly look for when catering to the employment needs of different employers?
It all comes down to suitable candidates. We also strive to provide our clients with suitable, quality candidates for their business. I believe this mostly comes down to finding a candidate with the right attitude and good communication skills.
