Changing Lives Recruiting


How have people navigated industry changes & collapse during Covid-19?

Recruit Personnel | On the frontline of people displacements & reinvention

Covid-19 has proven to be challenging on a personal and business level.  While the Hunter Valley was able to continue production in essential services, we have seen many sectors, including the travel and wine industries particularly affected by the initial impact of Covid-19.

Fortunately in many sectors business has bounced back.  Being in the business of putting people into jobs and finding staff solutions for local industries, as a small business, we work hard to support those who need to re-define themselves.  Our newest team member is a great example.
