Imagine having someone with 17 years recruitment experience & extensive networks within the Food Industry working in your corner! Someone who has learnt that in order to source the right candidate and create a long-term, trusting relationship, she has to immerse herself in the culture of the organisation she is representing.
Jana has a thorough understanding of the needs of the industry, established networks and outstanding knowledge of the labour market in which she operates. One of the points of difference is that she actively advocates the importance of not just hiring well-qualified staff, but also staff retention and further professional and personal development. She displays high integrity and straight forwardness, which is greatly appreciated by both, her clients and candidates.
Her extensive experience in the recruitment, training and HR industry has given Jana the authority status in this field. As a result she is regularly invited to talk and lecture on career development and recruitment at various industry events, schools and tertiary institutions, whilst also being the vice-president of Food Industries Associations of Queensland (FIAQ) and the membership coordinator & newsletter editor for Australian Institute of Food Science & Technology (AIFST).
It is not only recruitment that Jana receives phone calls for! She also adds massive value by advising her clients and candidates on current market salary levels, market intelligence and privacy and confidentiality while recruiting. Jana has an innate awareness of the acute shortage of professionals in the industry and the inherent need to draw the public attention to it.
Jana is qualified with a Master of Science in Agriculture, a Master of Business Administration, holds a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment, and is also a certified NLP Trainer and a Results Coach. But most importantly she has a real passion for the industry and really loves what she does.
