What sets us apart is our experience and commitment to the Early Childhood sector as well as our personal service – you will speak with a Consultant between 6am and 9:30pm 7 days a week!

 

Our Consultant Team

Our Consultant Team possesses practical knowledge of the early childhood and school age education and care sector.  Our consultants have early education sector specific qualifications, up to date sector knowledge, experience managing programs and/or working with children, and staff recruitment expertise.  In addition the team has demonstrated experience in the coordination of individual staff placement and rostering of volume staff requirements, professional learning and development and advocacy.


Our Educators

Our Educators are selected after they have gone through our recruitment and screening processes, an interview and an induction. Once they start working in our team we provide ongoing professional development and feedback through our evaluation processes to ensure our staff undertake their work in a professional, competent and satisfactory manner and provides continuing and professional development to our Educator team. The evaluations enable Hamilton’s to provide feedback to our casual staff – recognising and congratulating them for a job well done or providing support and advice in areas where skill development or changes in behaviour are required.  Evaluation detail are recorded in the roster database and are linked to both the client and staff member.


Our Clients

With over 20 years of experience working with the early childhood and school age education and care sector, Hamilton’s has built its reputation on professionalism, reliability, trust and a sound knowledge of the sector. Our clients have come to expect a personal and professional service level from our Consultant team. As well, they have come to expect a high standard in our Casual Educators that we place in their centres in an ongoing or sporadic nature. Further to this, we have been very successful over many years in placing the best matched Educators in the best matched Education and Care environment. We currently work with large, medium and small standalone centres and organisations in long day, preschool and out of school hours programs, in home and event settings. We are able to personalize our service to our client’s need and because a Hamilton’s consultant is available to take your call between 6am and 9.30pm Monday to Sunday the response times are what our clients are always impressed with. Bookings can be taken over the phone or by email and will be responded to promptly. Our extensive knowledge of the sector has resulted in a commitment to a same staff strategy wherever possible for our clients. We encourage you to request the same casual staff member on a regular basis and we endevour to place that Educator with you whenever possible and we support this strategy by building a staff profile for each casual staff member. The profile is based on your casual staff evaluation feedback and your casual staff preferences.  Where a preferred staff member is available for your booking we will endeavour to confirm that staff member for you.
