"Connecting People to Opportunities for a better life"
We asked our staff to think about a time in the last 12 months when they felt they made a client's, contractor's, candidate's or colleague's life better. This is what they said.....
STORY #1 – Sarah Magill
I recently assisted a candidate in her job search - she had been working for the one employer for nearly 8 years and hadn't had a pay rise in over 5 years. I assisted her to secure a position with a client that she loved from the moment she met them (to the point where she cancelled all her other interviews until she heard from them) and assisted her in increasing her salary by $23K. She cried when I told her the news, and it was 3 days before her birthday as well so was extra special for her.
STORY #2 – Cristian Cancino
I placed a Melbourne based contractor in Wollongong, Sydney. I advised her to do a really good job and then ask to have the client let her work from Melbourne and I mentioned to the client the same. The candidate was approved to work from Melbourne and the client and candidate are over the moon.
STORY #3 – Carrie Watts
I try to do this on a daily basis, as an Account Manager it's our job to essentially make our clients lives better, and the same case for contractors and candidates. A recent example was when Fujitsu had a large decommissioning project in December 2016 and required an additional 20+ contractors to assist the current team in Brisbane. I was able to secure and on-board all the additional contractors required and assisted the client with sending through work schedules for all the new additions. My client was slightly stressed knowing what a big job it was and the short turn around, but we made it work.
