Welcome to SCO Recruitment’s first monthly newsletter!
We feel it’s important for us to keep in regular contact with both our clients and employees which is why we’ve started this newsletter. Each month we’ll be emailing and updating you of what’s been happening at SCO. The information in each newsletter is important for you to know so please have a read through.
This month has been a busy one at SCO – this is what’s been happening.

SCO Recruitment was just recently named the 2nd fastest growing company in Australia by BRW after coming in 2nd place on the 2012 BRW Fast 100.
This is a fantastic achievement, however we’d like to make it clear that this was a combined effort. Our employees have all worked very hard over the past few years, yet this couldn’t have been achieved without the care and support from each and every one of our clients and the employees we have placed. We’d like to thank you for making this possible and we hope to continue working well with you in the future towards even more shared success.

As it’s coming into the busy season, particularly with parks and gardens work, we’ve been recruiting some great candidates over the past few weeks in a variety of areas including:

…and many more
So if you need some extra help in the coming weeks, just give one of our recruitment consultants a call on 8738 0100.
We’ve taken the first steps in updating our website by improving it’s look and usability. Take a look here: http://www.scorecruitment.com.au/
We’re also planning to incorporate more features over the coming weeks including:
- Online candidate registration
- Being able to apply for jobs directly on our site
These will also be introduced in the near future with an SCO Recruitment App which you can use to apply for jobs directly from your iPad or iPhone. We’re aiming to create a more efficient process for all of our candidates. Stay tuned for these and even more exciting updates soon!
Employee of the Month
From this month on we will be introducing an employee of the month program where we will be giving away free movie tickets to two of our top performing employees. This will be introduced as a way of recognising and rewarding all of the hard work that our employees continually put in week in and week out.
Our employees of the month for November are:
Roland Barber of SITA
John Melnyczenko of Auburn City Council
Congratulations to Roland and John! We will be sending you your movie tickets shortly!
Employee Referral Program
As a way to bring in even more great candidates, we’re introducing an employee referral program. If any of our employees know of someone who is interested in looking for work, let us know. If one of your referrals starts working and stays with us for more than 2 weeks, you’ll get two free movie tickets!
This year the Christmas public holidays will be on a Tuesday and Wednesday (25th and 26th December). As we won’t be in the office on these days all timesheets must be sent through to us by Friday 21st December or on the Monday morning by the latest – this is so we can process our employees pay before Christmas. If not, employee timesheets won’t get processed until Thursday (27th) meaning they won’t get paid until the Friday, so please get your timesheets in on time.
This is the same for New Years where the public holiday is on a Tuesday (1st). Once again timesheets need to be in by Friday (28th) or Monday morning at the latest, otherwise employees may be paid late.
