The company was sufficiently impressed by the Academy’s website to ask them to process the applications, carry out preliminary interviews and draw up a short-list of candidates.
Here are the details published on the website which can be visited here: Irish Flooring Academy
The Irish Flooring Academy has been aware for some time that there are many people in the industry who see further training as essential to gaining employment in the difficult economic circumstances that Ireland is currently in.
In an exciting development the Irish Flooring Academy has just received a request from a carpet fitting business in Australia to supply suitably qualified staff for their operation.
Known as ‘Floor Finishers’ in Australia the company, which is located in Queensland, is looking for people who are experienced in dealing with installing a range of materials to a high standard.
The company is part of the largest carpet retailers in Australia with branches in every part of the country.
Floor Finishers are one of the occupations found in the latest Australian Government Department of Immigration and Citizenship Consolidated Sponsored Occupation List issued on the 1 July 2012.
This means that Floor Finishers with recognised skills seeking to work in Australia can apply for a working visa as long as they are being sponsored by an Australian employer.
Maurice Flinter of the Irish Flooring Academy said “It’s a tribute to the reputation of the Irish workforce and recognition of the part played by the Irish Flooring Academy in delivering world class training”.
The Irish Flooring Academy has been asked to facilitate the Australian company by supplying a short list of suitable candidates.
Maurice continued “We are confident that we will be able to deliver the right candidates for this employer and this may well lead to many more vacancies becoming available in the future.”
Those interested in taking part in the process are asked to forward their CV to:
Irish Flooring Academy, Unit Athy Business Campus, Kilkenny Road, Athy, Co Kildare.
Those wanting email should send it to: info (at) irishflooringacademy (Dot) com
