Optical Staffing Solutions (OSS) is currently a side hustle and the brain child of Sales Agent and creator of the Australian & New Zealand Optical Forum; Christian Lister. This new initiative is run for optical people by optical people.
The idea has been one in the making for a number of years. As a salesman dealing with practices and dispensers daily, it became apparent through many conversations with customers that finding the right staff can be challenging. This constant search for matching the right person and practice is a constant battle for many practices, and so the idea for Optical Staffing Solutions (OSS) was born. This is a service provided specifically and only to the optical industry, from people that know the business.
OSS will focus our attention only in the Optical Profession, providing a competitive recruitment service without the exuberant commission fees charged by other recruitment companies. It makes perfect sense to use someone who knows the industry and knows the people within the industry. The OSS focus will be on finding quality candidates and matching them to the needs of your business.
We know from our own experience that simply placing an ad online doesn’t automatically bring in the right candidates. Many applicants have little to no experience and this can be a frustrating and costly exercise. Through my relationships and years in the industry, I’ll aim to put together a network of desirable candidates and desirable employers too. OSS will save you the worry and hassle of finding employees who want to work for you and make the recruitment process more seamless. Hopefully finding the right fit for both parties and saving everyone time and money.
Optical Staffing Solutions will conduct interviews and provide you a small selection of candidates who we believe will be a suitable addition to your business. I bet many can relate to sifting through resumes to find no one is quite the right fit. Optical Staffing Solutions will only work with people who are already within the industry. We want to only provide staff that are experienced and understand the optical industry. Optical Staffing Solutions will provide anyone in an optical role including but not limited to optometrists, dispensers, reception staff and sales reps in Fulltime, part time and locum positions.
