Luus Industries is a commercial cooking manufacturer based in Sunshine. When recruiting for his team, CEO Ao Luu explains that attitude is the most important factor, as skills can be taught.
Luus Industries has been working with Jobs Victoria Partner WCIG to recruit several local Jobs Victoria participants.
Ao Luu says Jobs Victoria and WCIG “have paid a lot of attention to exactly who we are as a business, understand what we want, and show that support through the quality of candidates they put forward to us.”
Jobs Victoria Mentor Jasmine Chung established a positive relationship with Luus Industries over two years. She always referred jobseekers with a good work ethic and the right cultural fit and highlighted the transferable skills of local jobseekers who could be trained in a range of roles. Many of these were workers from the local community who had been made reductant from the auto industry. The workplace has a positive multicultural environment and both Luus Industries and the participants are happy with the way the relationship is working.
Ao Luu says: “We can see us using them a lot more because of this success rate we’ve had.”
Currently Luus Industries employs five Jobs Victoria participants. Luus is a great example of how an employer is working with its local Jobs Victoria Partner to recruit local workers.
