14 April 2010
Carl Princehorn, Deputy General Manager, CRS Australia, today officially opened CRS Australia’s new Caloundra office.
The Caloundra office relocated to 19 Bingera Terrace to provide improved services and programs for people living in the Caloundra region. In addition to delivering Disability Employment Services, the CRS Australia Caloundra office provides a range of other valuable services such as return to work programs, ergonomic workstation assessments, manual handling training, Employee Assistance Programs (EAP) and OHS risk management and consultancy services.
The Caloundra office has already placed over 60 job seekers into jobs so far this financial year.
‘CRS Australia has strong links with the local community, including community and health organisations, to ensure Caloundra’s disability employment needs are met,’ said Carl Princehorn.
CRS Australia has also forged strong working relationships with local employers such as Leading Edge Electronics, Caloundra.
Leading Edge Electronics’, Derek Hicks, cited excellent customer service and support as key benefits of their relationship with CRS Australia.
‘CRS Australia provides the crucial link, bridging the gap between employer and employee,’ Mr Hick’s said. ‘The service they have provided has been second to none and has been a big advantage to the business.’
Carl Princehorn explained, ‘The new office provides ease of access to our employment services. We’re able to effectively cater for employers with staffing needs as well as our job seekers in their search for suitable jobs.
‘Off-street parking and more space for functional assessments and group-based services are just a few of the benefits of the new office location.
‘CRS Australia has an expert team of consultants who work with job seekers to help them understand their strengths, obtain new skills and build their confidence so they are ready to enter employment and live independently’.
