FRANCA FORDE

OWNER / DIRECTOR

Franca Forde is not your typical Boss with a background of 53 years in the Hospitality industry. At 18 years old she started managing apartments, hotels and resorts.
She held her first hotel license at the age of 21 and opened Staffing Solution 29 years ago.
She has a team of staff behind her, that believe in her mission and strive every day to make sure the staff and clients of Staffing Solution feel we are the first choice for staffing in Australia. She is a down to Earth woman who unwinds by walking her dogs and having a glass of red.
Please don’t ask her when she is retiring as she always says “it won’t be until I stop loving what I do”.
