The challenge & solution
An executive resourcing firm urgently needed a strong candidate who was capable of doing the role they were trying to fill, but most people they had interviewed were not strong enough despite having attractive CVs.
While the firm initially dismissed a candidate who they felt didn’t have the right job titles nor experience, we knew the individual met the brief and was up for the challenge! Because we get to know our candidates and rigorously review their experience and competencies, we’re often able to identify skills that others miss. And it paid off! The client was thankful for our support as their trusted advisor to meet with the candidate which quickly resulted in a hire without delay!
Here’s what they had to say
“I have been dealing with Australasian now for many years and always been hugely impressed by not only their professionalism but their integrity and passion throughout the complete recruitment process (both client and candidate). Australasian actually placed me here at my current role and there is no better placement I could ever have found.
“Australasian’s approach is to take their time to get to know their clients’ needs/wants individually. Personally, for me, having someone I can trust as a business confidant is second to none and I have this with Australasian.
“I have been working with the team at Australasian on both permanent and temporary positions, covering support roles, reception and EA positions for many years now. They only ever send candidates that they know will fit not only the remit of the role required, but also personality for the particular team, together with our diverse company values. These are the people I end up hiring.
“This is a relationship that has gone from strength to strength and one that I truly believe will continue to thrive as our company grows.”
