Workforce Management

Outsourced solutions that save you time, cost and reduce risk.

managed services

Managed services is an “unbundled” workforce solution that enables your business to employ apprentices or trainees direct, but outsource the associated administrative requirements.

Under this approach apprentices and/or trainees currently employed and paid by your business will continue to be engaged in this way. MIGAS takes on responsibility for recruitment, employment administration, employee performance and guidance, training and reporting requirements for your apprentices and trainees.

Managed services can be tailored to suit your business needs and requirements.

Your may prefer to directly source, recruit and employ the apprentice or trainee workforce, but handover employee management and support to MIGAS.

Through our on-the-ground team of experience Field Officers, MIGAS provides mentoring for apprentices and trainees for the duration of their employment. We work together with the apprentice and the employer to promote appropriate work ethics, productive behaviours, a culture of safety and strong technical performance. Our field officers can provide all aspects of apprentice management or just focus on specific areas as required.

If you also require support with payroll services and workplace health and safety compliance, talk to us about our Complete Workforce Solutions

Areas of apprentice management that can be incorporated under your managed service arrangement include:

  • Recruitment services including advertising, shortlisting, interviewing, screening, testing and induction;
  • Administrative coordination of the Apprentice Training Contracts between the employee, parent or guardian (where applicable), Australian Apprenticeship Support Network (AASN) and the employer;
  • Management of ‘off the job’ training requirements with the selected Registered Training Organisation to support course progression and completion;
  • Ensuring the employer has received all relevant government incentives entitled (eligibility is assessed by the AASN); and
  • Coordinating completion requirements of the apprenticeship/trainee placement.
