01. Introducing LiveHire - Our Talent Community

Wednesday, 14 June 2017.


Welcome to our team's very first recruitment blog! I look forward to sharing information with you that will enhance your opportunities of working at Barwon Health, or extend your career with Australia’s leading regional health service.

This blog has been developed to share with you recruitment tips, resources, share new trends, and other valuable information around recruitment at Barwon Health.

The future can be daunting but also very exciting, and that’s why I’d be crazy not to introduce our very first blog with a new initiative that the Talent Team is extremely eager to incorporate into our recruitment process…LiveHire!

You may have received a text message, an email or possibly both; you may have already connected with us, or you may have rolled your eyes and ignored it, or possibly you have no idea what this extraordinary system even is. Nevertheless, I am hoping to enlighten you as to what LiveHire is, how it works, and why you need to be a part of this modern candidate-driven recruitment process.

What’s all the fuss about?

LiveHire launched in 2012 and became the world’s first live talent ecosystem.What does that mean? Well, this means LiveHire is a marketplace for employers to find talent on demand. It means embracing modern technology to source talent in the most efficient and effective way Barwon Health has ever seen.

How do you get involved?

To get involved you just need to join our Talent Community and set up your profile. In your profile you can set your work preferences, skills, availability and what you are looking for in a career. If your skills match our job vacancy we can contact you and ask if you’d be interested in an interview before this job vacancy is even closed.

Why this recruitment system will benefit you!                                                                             

With life becoming busier and responsibilities greater, LiveHire eases the stress for both you and us.

  1. Unlike applying for a job position, LiveHire has no deadlines; you are free to join whenever you have a spare moment.
  2. You are in control of your personal information, and have the ability to update your profile at any time.
  3. A key element of why this process is so appealing is that we endeavour to skip a lot of our external   advertising by advertising only our website, unless required.  This will fast-track the wait for an interview, and adds valuable time for management to be able to communicate more with you.

Barwon Health is a value-driven organisation that lives the value ‘innovation’ by being a healthcare system open to change and improvement. LiveHire exhibits this value by being at the peak of modern recruitment with a pool of potential employees that also support this innovative initiative.

This is the future and we can’t wait for you to welcome it in the same way we have.

It’s time to Join our Talent Community!

I look forward to sharing my behavioural interviewing tips in the next blog.
