Job Ready Philosophy: Setting us aside from other DES software, is our ATTRACT PLACE RETAIN philosophy. The philosophy aims to capture all elements of the employment pathway such as engagement, assessment, training and post-placement support. 

ATTRACT: How will you win JobSeekers and employers?

Job Ready offers a platform that helps you nurture and engage both employers and JobSeekers which is critical in an increasingly competitive world. Job Ready s an integrated CRM to modern and mobile self-service that has been designed to support contemporary business development and service delivery model. By offering a personalised service with support, jobs and communications that matter to JobSeekers, consultants can focus on high value, human interactions with JobSeekers themselves providing a service model that is highly attractive and rewarding for both the JobSeeker and Provider. 

PLACE: Exceptionally place JobSeekers into work.

Job Ready allows DES Providers an effective as possible way to underpin high performance and speed to the placement of Job Seekers. The platform supports DES Provider teams allowing them to win every day and collaborate via JobReady's employer engagement tools such as the Job Boards features and Vacancy Management. 

Likewise, to the Plus platform with student motivation, the Job Ready platform uses leading behavioural science tools to assess Job Seeker's motivation for employment. By assessing Job Seekers motivation, DES Providers are able to better equip consultants to map intervention to develop a person-centred approach and provide the appropriate support to get JobSeekers placed. 

The result - more  Job Seekers are placed than ever before and DES Providers experience a happy and engaging workflow that goes above and beyond expectations.
