Job Search Perth With Blue Collar People

On a job search in the Perth area? Looking for work can be an overwhelming experience. Whether you are looking to enter the workforce, change careers or simply seeking a new workplace environment, check out our helpful tips for job seekers here.
Perth job search tools
There are a number of useful tools you can utilise when job searching. From the traditional newspaper advertisements, store window signs and community boards to the more modern online technology such as job seeker websites and even social media pages, there have never been more options available when looking for employment.
Despite being a great way for jobseekers to connect with employers, today’s competitive Perth job search market means that many people are applying for the one position. If you are a jobseeker becoming frustrated with the time consuming process of applying for multiple positions without success, don’t despair! There are other options aside from the conventional job search mediums which may just have exactly the type of job you are seeking!
Labour hire services
You’re probably familiar with the concept of employment agencies. Essentially they are hired by companies looking to recruit staff directly, rather than advertising the position externally themselves. The employment agencies match businesses with potential employees, who become employed directly via that business.
Another recruitment service you may not have heard of is a labour hire company. They operate in a similar way, but with a couple of key differences for employees. The most notable difference for job seekers is that you are actually employed by the labour hire company directly, rather than the client, and sent on a variety of different jobs to multiple businesses as required.
Blue Collar People – Perth job seekers
There a number of benefits to being employed by a labour hire services company. At Blue Collar People, we employ suitably qualified job seekers from a wide range of different industries, and match them with our clients for both long and short term assignments. You’ll never be bored again with the workplace diversity that comes from working for a variety of different companies in your chosen industry! Because you remain employed by the labour hire company, all your training, inductions, insurance and wages is covered, without having to fill out time consuming paperwork for different employers at the end of each contract.
At Blue Collar People we specialise in assisting job seekers in Perth to find the perfect match with our clients. We are always on the lookout for potential employees that have the excellent work ethic and standards we uphold, and are proud to pass on the same standard of excellence to our clients.

WHAT’S THE IDEAL RETIREMENT AGE?


Workers in Australia can retire from the workforce at any age they want to – the only major problem that they need to consider is whether they have enough savings or enough super to keep them going for the rest of their lives, in the absence of the aged pension – and herein lies the problem.
Currently the retirement age in Australia, whereupon retirees may qualify for an aged pension, is 65. By 2023 the retirement age will rise to 67 and to 70 by 2035. It’s great news that we are all living longer – and that’s the reason why the government is lifting the retirement age – but are we all physically capable of working till we are 70?
I have a lot of friends who are tradesmen and are in the 50’s and they tell me that the manual, physical part of their work is already starting to get quite hard for them to handle. So for some people that are in hard physical labour-intensive work, their bodies are worn out by the time they reach 50 or 60. Is asking them to work another 10 years till they are 70 a reasonable request? It’s not like they can all get a job in an office if they have been working on the tools all of their working lives.
I would like to see the retirement age lowered to 60 – and this does not mean that people that reach 60 would have to retire – it would be their choice. But if they chose to retire at 60 they would be eligible for the aged pension at that age.
I have read the reports that state that we cannot afford to pay the age pension for so long and that it is a huge burden on our national budget – but I can’t help but thinking that it would be nice if our senior citizens who have worked all of their lives and paid taxes for all of their working lives would have a choice when they reach the age of 60 – a choice that should only be made by them. That choice might be something like, “I am going to retire and take my age pension and see Australia, or go on an extended fishing trip, or just relax and enjoy myself”. Or it could also be, “ I am really enjoying going to work and I am going to stay in the workforce”.
On us not being able to afford to provide this choice I am thinking that for every person that retires from the workforce it also leaves a position or a job that needs to be filled by someone else. The person that fills that job may have been previously out of work.
It must be very disheartening for a young person these days to finish their schooling and not be able to get a job. Would it be a better place for us all if we allowed people who have worked hard all their lives and choose to retire, to allow them to do so at 60 and enjoy the fruits of their lives and to hand over the reins to our younger generation that may have been unable to find work but that want the stability that employment brings and that want to contribute to society?
Will this make a happier and more prosperous Australia for us all?  Add your thoughts to our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Blue-Collar-People/1484400968442110
