Studium has partnered with the Department of Primary Industry and Regional Development (DPIRD) to develop a free region-specific employment portal where displaced workers can search for job opportunities and employers can access a pool of workers from all industry sectors and skill levels in their region.

The portal provides an alternative way to search for and recruit workers with in-depth profiles, which include the candidate’s details, examples of their work, a personal bio, psychometric test results and a personal video. 

The portal aims to reduce the amount of time required to select and interview the right worker – employers can use the portal to shortlist candidates with detailed search parameters and then be put in touch directly to arrange a call or interview.
