Meet Danielle, one of Frankston City Council’s new Working for Victoria recruits. Danielle started in her role as project co-ordinator/recruiter with the council’s People and Culture team in September, having spent the past five or six years working in the HR sector.
“I am passionate about business improvement and ensuring candidates have a positive experience in being on-boarded,” Danielle said. “Having the right systems to support this experience is key, and that’s something we’re working towards here.”
The Working for Victoria program was established at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic to match work-ready jobseekers with organisations needing staff.
With the pandemic presenting unique challenges for all of us, Danielle has found it hard being away from her gym and fitness community, so she began cycling every day and started painting – a creative outlet that brings simple joy to her life.
“We also got our puppy, Willow, about a month ago,” Danielle said. “She’s a 12-week-old beagle, so working from home has been great as it means I can be home with her.”
