Brisbane-based recruitment marketing specialists, Employment Office, is bucking the current trend in the industry, expanding rather than downsizing its workforce despite the unstable outlook for the global economy.
Employment Office recently launched a campaign to attract a number of new Sales and Account Executives to work in its Brisbane, Melbourne, Vancouver and Toronto locations.
Employment Office Managing Director Tudor Marsden-Huggins said the vacancies present a unique opportunity for both experienced and inexperienced candidates alike. There are a number of entry-level positions with comprehensive training and education included in the package.
“This could be a good opportunity for someone looking to change careers or get their start in the sales field. It’s not essential for applicants to have sales experience, but they do need to be driven, energetic and most of all have strong communication skills,” he said.
Employment Office credits its steady growth to the stability of its service range, which remains attractive to clients even during lean periods.
“Flat-rate recruitment services are proving to be a more steady ship through good and bad economic times. We don’t seem to suffer as much as traditional recruitment agencies when times are tough,” Marsden-Huggins said.
This sentiment is illustrated by Employment Office never having made an employee redundant since commencing operations in 1999.
“Our goal is to remain sustainable with a consistent level of growth. We are currently looking for several new people for our Global Head Office in Brisbane, and also a few new recruits for Melbourne,” he said.
For candidates interested in the new roles on offer with Employment Office, the benefits are extensive.
“We offer a number of benefits to prospective salespeople including an uncapped commission structure, health advice and financial planning, a busy social events calendar and opportunities to work in our international locations. We also offer our people professional development and educational opportunities to further their careers,” Marsden-Huggins said.
The program presents a rare opportunity for job seekers to get their foot in the door with a global organisation. Employment Office currently has offices in Brisbane, Melbourne, Vancouver and Toronto, with plans to expand into new markets.
In 2011, Employment Office debuted at Number 27 in BRW’s 50 Best Places to Work.
