Health Minister Roger Cook has recently debuted WA Country Health Service’s (WACHS) Talent Community, fueled by the talent acquisition and engagement platform LiveHire.
The new cloud-based, recruitment platform will be trialled in the Pilbara and Kimberley regions as part of an initiative changing the way the WACHS recruits nursing, midwifery and allied health professionals. The LiveHire platform will be used to recruit casual and fixed-term positions.
The pilot project addresses the Sustainable Health Review’s recommendation for immediate action to cut red tape, hasten the recruitment of staff and reduce unnecessary agency costs through the exploration of an innovative approach to recruitment by using digital technology.
The new Talent Community enables WACHS to create talent pools, increasing visibility and ease of access for potential employees, alleviating the time burden on managers responsible for recruiting and reducing the cost associated with recruitment. Additionally, LiveHire will allow managers to have ongoing engagement with previous or potential candidates as well as access to electronic CVs when recruiting to positions.
