Max Employment aids job seekers and help seekers
Release date: 22 December 2014
Job-seekers and help-seekers are the winners, following the huge success of Max Employment’s Finders Keepers campaign.
Lifeline CEO, Jane Hayden, said that the campaign was not only finding jobs for Australians in their local communities, but Max Employment was also donating to charities like Lifeline which will answer more than 18,000 calls from help-seekers between Christmas and New Year’s Day alone.
"The months leading up to Christmas can be a very stressful time for many people, with job security, finances and relationship difficulties being a focus of calls to Lifeline’s 13 11 14 crisis service.
“Lifeline has been thrilled to see the community-spirit shining through, with the response from local businesses a great show of confidence in the talent base of their local areas.
“The target of 10,000 jobs before Christmas Day has already been reached.
“On behalf of Lifeline I would like to congratulate the amazing staff at Max Employment who have gone above and beyond their position requirements to give so many people the ultimate Christmas present – a job.”
Jane Hayden said that Lifeline expects almost one million Australians will call 13 11 14 in the next year.
“Demand for crisis support via 13 11 14 has increased by some 37% from June 2012 to June 2014, and each day, we receive more than 100 calls from people vulnerable to suicide.
“Max Employment has proved to be a valuable partner for Lifeline with both its support for the unemployed and its financial support of Lifeline services.”
