Formerly a recruitment consultant with Drake International, in permanent and executive placement, Bek has placed candidates successfully across multiple sectors. She has previously co-ordinated large recruitment drives for mature IT Cadets for ACT Govt (OTAE) and has extensive experience with traineeships, apprenticeships and group training methods through working with Futurestaff, Hospitality Training Network, East Coast Training and the Job Network.

Let me manage the entire recruitment process for you, allowing you anonymity in the process. Free up your time to get on with what YOU do best.

  • Scope your particular requirements
  • Clarify the position description
  • Writing and booking the advertisement using online and print media
  • Receive and process all correspondence and enquiries
  • Shortlist, phone interview, screen and respond to all applicants (successful and unsuccessful)
  • Thoroughly Interview (face-to-face) the most appropriate 6-8 applicants; assess and reference check them
  • Provide 2-3 recommendations for your final interview and consideration

I can assist you to refine comprehensive scenario questions, at that second interview to ensure the strengths and weaknesses of the applicants (particular to your role), are highlighted. The final selection of applicants generally ALL have the skill fit. The final interview is a matter of choosing the individual with whom ‘you most resonate’ – ie the softer skills that will fit with your team.

testimonials

Rebekah’s contribution has proven invaluable, helping us define what new skill sets we have needed and then conducting the process to get the right people. Her objective, impartial and thorough approach to the growth process and exemplary use of a range of personality assessment tools has enabled us to bring people on board with not only the right practical skills but, very importantly to us, the necessary and entirely compatible cultural skills upon which the business is based.

Graeme Singleton GM – APH – July 2015

 

Thanks again for your work in securing our new General Manager. We are thrilled with your efficiency and competency and of course how incredibly economical your service is. You made the whole process so easy with your steady flow of information about where you were up to and you have delivered an excellent result, again. I would highly recommend your service to all businesses seeking new staff. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.

Daniel Maher MD – Affirmations Publishing House – May 2015

 

I can’t tell you how effortless you made our recent placement process. As well as spending a totally delightful morning together, conducting our final interviews with you, (as our third interviewee and sounding board), your professionalism, high level of communication and positive attitude was invaluable when faced with this daunting task.

Thank you so much for everything you handled on our behalf.
Suzi Maher Director – Affirmations Publishing House  – May 2012

 

‘Rebekah you made a very improbable job absolutely achievable. With minimal time, limited information extraction and surrounded by frantically preoccupied people (which is why we called for your help in recruitment) – you helped change our service completely.
Not only in recruitment (such WONDERFUL people), but in helping me organise what was deemed unorganisable – my correspondence file!
There is a definite need for someone with your discerning eye and ability to overlook the mess you can come into. The service thanks you, the management thank you, and I thank you.’

Regina Saunders – Manager Jetty Bunker Youth Services

‘Bek formalised my recruitment process so it was accountable and productive. Rather than just settling for the next smiling face who walked through the door, Bek helped me clarify my specific needs and we strategically chose the perfect fit for my management style, my business culture and my team’s needs.’

Wendy Scott
Former Owner/Director
Tree of Life Wellness & Day Spa, Sawtell, NSW

‘We were floundering; we needed a gatekeeper recruited, time management strategies, systems organized & debtors managed. Rebekah sorted all this & more. We needed someone to kick ass in the nicest possible way. She’s worth her weight in gold.’
Helen & Trevor Tree
Owners – 20/20 Imagineering

‘We were looking for easy recruitment. Bek took all the hard work out of it and I got to do the fun bits! She kept me consistently up to date; was extremely thorough, taking all the responsibility and we found the perfect candidate. Exactly what we needed.’
Vicky Bohringer
Bellingen Burrows Childcare Centre

‘Rebekah understood the skills we required for our company to grow. We are very happy with the person we have appointed.’
