Upskilling your knowledge & confidence
What is Work Ready?
Opt4 is primarily involved in the recruitment and casual labour force, therefore, we understand people both as employers and employees. We specialise in finding people for jobs and understand what it takes to get a job. We spend every day understanding what businesses want and then advertising for jobs, interviewing people and placing them. We see on a daily basis the things that people get wrong that hold them back from getting jobs.
We want to help those who are struggling to find the confidence to apply for jobs, need help with interview techniques, or maybe need to retrain to move into different industries or jobs.
We offer a two day comprehensive back to basics, plus more, course offering a range of skills that generally people are missing to even get a job interview! Often it is the small things that are stopping people from getting jobs. We can help bridge the gap.
We have partnered ourselves with Sass Workshops that specialise in delivering a range of workshops from Microsoft courses, general computer courses, financial to HR courses. With their workshops and training experience and our HR and employing experience, we are well equipped to train people to be WORK READY!
We cover four main areas that most people lack confidence in to achieve their work goals
1. CV, Cover Letters and Interviews
