I'm an employer: how can I be sure you will recruit the right candidate?

We have a thorough screening process in place to ensure we find the best person for the job. This process includes the following steps:

  • Matching Position Requirements: We start by carefully reviewing the resume and cover letter to see if their skills and experience align with the specific requirements of the client.
  • Qualification Review: We’ll then delve deeper into the qualifications, education, certifications, and work history of the individual. Maxima do not accept overseas qualifications unless these qualifications have been recognised by Australian state of territory government Overseas Qualifications Unit (OQU).
  • Reference Checks: To get a well-rounded picture of the candidates performance, we contact their references to verify employment history and get insights into work ethic and skills. No candidate is placed with one of our Clients without the candidate having been satisfactorily reference checked.
  • Candidate Testing: Depending on the role, they may be required to take skills assessments or tests to gauge their abilities relevant to the position. A complete list of our testing range is available to the Client upon request.
  • Security Clearance: Maxima will thoroughly review the clearance / security requirements for each role and ensure that any candidates we submit for the role meet the stated criteria. We can also conduct Working with Children Checks or any other clearances that may be required for the position. These are then held on confidential file and managed by an administrator to ensure they stay within the compliant range whilst working for us. We proactively follow up candidates prior to the date of renewal.
  • Visa Verification (if applicable): Maxima are a VEVO (Visa Entitlement Verification Online) registered organisation. Our candidates are required to declare whether they are Australian Citizens on their application form and provide proof, and to produce paperwork showing their work entitlements if they answer “no”. This is cross referenced with VEVO. This is monitored on a weekly basis by the administration team to ensure compliance.
  • Quality Control: Our administration team report all non-compliance to our recruitment consultants, who will then replace the temporary staff member if they fail to satisfactorily respond. Maxima maintain record management database systems which are regularly audited, reviewed and updated.

By following these steps, we identify candidates who possess the necessary skills and experience to succeed in the role, as well as those who are a good cultural fit for your team.
