15,000 Jobs Found, 15,000 Lives Changed 

Over 15,000 job seekers are now successfully placed in work thanks to the annual MAX Christmas campaign

December 23 2015



It’s been a busy three months for MAX Employment sites around the country, but as we close our doors on Christmas Eve, over 15,000 job seekers are now successfully placed in work thanks to our annual Christmas campaign, 15,000 stars for Christmas.

“The sites have gone above and beyond to help ease the stress of Christmas for a lot of families this year,” said MAX Employment Managing Director Deborah Homewood. “Employers have been fantastic and have given a lot of job seekers a chance at a joyful, happy Christmas.”

The MAX Employment 15,000 Stars for Christmas campaign ran from 1 October to Christmas Eve, and aimed to place 15,000 job seekers into employment in the three month span. Ms Homewood said the target was well and truly reached this year, with sites smashing the target by nearly 1,000 placements.

“We’re so proud that we have been able to change the lives of almost 16,000 people for Christmas. A job can truly be the greatest gift for families looking at a bleak holiday season.

“Christmas can be a huge struggle for a lot of people. Many companies close over the holiday period, which can make finding work very difficult this time of year. Some of our job seekers were facing unemployment with the family budget already stretched beyond capacity. 

“We’re excited to give job seekers the chance to welcome in 2016 with renewed hope and energy,” Ms Homewood said.

In the spirit of giving, Ms Homewood said MAX will donate a total of $100,000 to four charities in celebration of the campaign’s success. 

“The Luke Batty Foundation, Mates4Mates, Kids Helpline and the Adelaide Crows Children’s Foundation will each receive a donation of $25,000. These charities do great work in helping the very people we meet each day, which is why we’re thrilled we have the opportunity support them,” she said. 

Employers that need vacancies filled in 2016 can still register vacancies with MAX Employment. For more information call the MAX Employer Hotline on 1800 206 346.
