Staff are crucial to the business for us so
it’s vital for us to recruit and recruit well and we spend a lot of time in doing it. Being
in a business, or being in a small business you really have to be hands on where you haven’t
got massive resources like you do in larger companies. My snapshot of my day is start
very early, finish very late. I don’t have a lot of time to be able to go out and interview
people, search for people. I use SEEK so that I can let SEEK do my job for me. I’ve had
resumes posted to me while I’m with customers and I can look at them anytime I like, it’s
real simple. We’d recommend SEEK to any businesses. Especially in small business for someone like
us who are time poor. SEEK is so easy to use. I can click a button, with a real small adjustment
we’ve got our ad out and we will have applicants virtually within twenty four hours. The account
management system has really been helpful for us. Certainly fast tracks the applicants.
We’re able to store all the applicants in a central file. It’s like your own HR department.
I need someone that I can call on when I need them and that’s what SEEK offers. SEEK gives
me great results. Felicia, Nicola, Angela – they’re really hard working girls. I hope
you get the good people, the good staff. It’s actually in some ways one of the worst parts
of my job. I’m in a position where I can’t give jobs to really good applicants that
come from it, and look there’ll be people walking round behind me now who have come
from a SEEK ad, so there’s living proof of that. On one occasion I’ve had to call customer
service and they were fantastic. I spoke to a really lovely girl, and I have to know I’m
not talking to a computer at the other end of the phone, and it’s someone that actually
cares and SEEK cared. We’re definitely expanding and SEEK will be a part of it whenever I need
to recruit new people. We need more people and SEEK certainly gives us the opportunity
to get the right people in this business so they can all grow with us.
