Optic Security Apprenticeship Push
♦ Optic Security Apprenticeship Push – ANZ security integrator Optic Security is looking to meet the challenges of high client project demand and a tight labour market with new trainee and apprenticeship opportunities.
Optic is growing at a rapid rate, with extensions of current client capabilities in addition to new clients and emerging sector services, across all geographic regions.
“We’ve recruited 23 new employees over the past 6 months, and in August we’ll be onboarding 10 new starters over a 10-day period,” said Optic’s managing director ANZ Mark Lloyd.
“It’s great that we’ve been able to continue attracting new talent despite the challenges the security industry has been facing on the labour supply side.
“As a sector-wide issue, the skills shortage will likely take some time to resolve, particularly so in terms of developing homegrown talent – and we’re looking to do our bit. In many of the varied geographies in which we operate, developing local talent through traineeships and apprenticeships makes good sense for us and for the communities we work in,” Lloyd said.
“Optic Security Group has a strong a strong cohort of very experienced senior technicians who are eager to share their skills and knowledge with the next generation of electronic security professionals. With the portfolio of clients we have, we can offer some pretty amazing learning environments – from airports to hospitals, critical infrastructure facilities to major telcos.”
“We have a range of vacancies across Australia and across a range of roles,” said Optic’s Group HR Manager Fiona Mackee. “New recruits will benefit from a range of initiatives the group has put in place over the past 12 months.”
“Among these initiatives is a recently initiated partnership with Rewards Gateway. Our Optic Prime employee reward and recognition platform also provides employees with access to increased buying power for their own shopping needs, ensuring that each dollar they earn goes further. This benefits their whole family where each member can benefit from discounts and cashbacks across an array of shopping needs – groceries, entertainment and movies even travel.
“In addition to supporting employee career progression through performance and planning processes, as a knowledge driven organisation we invest significantly in vendor certification training, and we take a strategic lens to promoting professionalisation through our Optic Academy initiative,” said Mackee.
