What a few of our valued customers have to say about us
Rainbow Childcare Centre
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for going above and beyond your call of duty endeavouring to find the ‘right’ candidate to fill the role of Early Childhood Teacher for our 39 place boutique child care centre.
As you are well aware the position of the Early Childhood Teacher is extremely a tough role to fill these days and you worked extremely hard (around the clock), to ensure a positive outcome for the campaign.
We achieved a great result, attracting 93 candidates. One of the candidates in fact, lead us to the Early Childhood Teacher we’ve recently employed to join our team. In addition, two candidates have now joined our casual list.
Once again, I appreciate the support, advice you have given, as well as the connections you have shared with me. Your expertise and help have been invaluable during this process.
Thank you for the positive experience with yourself and the Employment office.
Ps: Keep up the fabulous work!

Minit Australia Pty Ltd
We tend not to outsource our recruitment process but whenever we have a high profile role that needs to be filled we call on our Employment Office partnership to help us attract and recruit the right Mister Minit fit.
Craig and the Employment Office Team have been professional, timely and their support has been excellent. A highlight is the constant follow up and feedback throughout the process and how they can help you along the way in making the right recruitment decision.
For us, Employment Office has clearly differentiated themselves by their unique service and consistent follow up throughout the entire process. We see them as being a valuable business partner and would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Craig and his team to fulfil recruitment needs.
Employment Office was able to target the best job-seekers, via the most appropriate channels. As a result, we had a very strong selection of candidates. Following a very successful process, which included Behavioural Testing, the top candidate was secured.

Thank you to Employment Office and to Chris Bullock who was extremely professional and thorough when dealing with us during our recent campaign. The quality of candidates we received was outstanding and the SCOUT CMS allowing us to login and view and rate the candidates was incredibly helpful. Thank you very much Chris & Employment Office.
Carly Thompson, Recruitment Officer Urban Group Energy
Thank you for assisting us in finding a physiotherapist for our FIFO role. Employment Office was always prompt, professional and catered to our rural needs. We were able to recruit a very well suited Physio who started FIFO then decided to move here with his wife. Employment Office’s interviewing and retention strategies were also very helpful and we will be able to use them in future recruitment plans.
Laurice Kennedy, Practice Manager Vital Health
The staff hand selected the top five candidates for our position and interviewed them with behavioural screening. They also provided analysis and reference checks on the candidates meaning that all we had to do was meet and interview our top five candidates for the final selection.
We used the Employment Offices conference room to conduct our final interviews and it was a great success with our top candidate securing the role of QLD Territory Manager.
General Manager Delf Architectural

I have been using the services of Employment Office since earlier in the year for the recruitment of our specialised positions. To date I have found the service to be highly professional and extremely flexible to accommodate the clients particular needs which is important for us being a remote nonprofit Indigenous Association.
I value the input of my Account Executive whom on past campaigns has provided insightful advise, support and all the assistance required to ensure we attract the right people for our positions.
I would highly recommend Employment Office to anyone seeking a value for money service that has the means of attracting high quality applicants.

Alex Fraser Group
I have used Employment Office services including the Candidate Management System (CMS) since June 2008. In that time I have recruited 70 roles attracting over 2,400 applications. The EO service allows me to place high quality, consistent-looking job advertisements quickly in a variety of online and print media. The CMS is user-friendly and allows both the hiring manager and me to see applicants and shortlist them for interview. The CMS is essential for keeping track of the large number of applicants we now receive. I have always found the team at EO responsive and I’m happy to recommend them.

Thanks for a great campaign, we had an outstanding response to the recruitment advert you wrote and found a number of suitable applicants to interview. We were able to place a quality applicant in the position.
Amber Ritchie CatholicCare Social Services
East Coast Lubes
East Coast Lubes has used Employment Office’s recruitment marketing and short-listing services on several occasions. We believe they are a great way to recruit.
Having previously used recruitment agencies we found that their higher costs did not necessarily reflect better quality candidates. Employment office was a much-needed alternative. They tailored the costs and services to the needs of East Coast Lubes with various vacancies from sales support level right through to executive level.
We would recommend their services and will call on them to assist in the future.
Carlos Martins – CFO – ECL

We are very pleased with our successful applicants. We will not hesitate to engage your services in the future.

Essendon Football Club
Hi John & Eliza,
I’d like to take the opportunity to thank you both.
The service and delivery was outstanding and the ranking system was very accurate (I believe we appointed the person with the highest rating). I found SCOUT easy to use and both of you wonderful to deal with (and so patient with us given this hectic time) – thank you!
We were very pleased with the result and I look forward to working again with you in the future.
Hailey Grimes, Human Resources Manager Essendon Football Club
Mid North Christian College
Thanks to the assistance of the Employment Office Mid North Christian College successfully appointed a Counsellor/ Chaplain. We had a wonderful outcome for our College and it is heartening to know we had several other very suitable applicants that could be perfect for future vacancies.
We were very impressed at the volume of quality candidates that came forth for the position even though we are quite isolated.
Neil Rowcroft, Principal Mid North Christian College

With the help of the Employment Offices great staff, recruitment advertising and Scout, Harbour City Ferries succeeds in finding and selecting great quality candidates for our varied maritime workforce.
We have found Employment Office’s varied services to meet the high level of expectations that we require for our recruitment department.
Debbie Price, Recruitment Team Harbour City Ferries
We were extremely happy with Employment Office’s campaign to recruit our Fundraising and Development Manager.
We received 31 suitable applicants, screened down to 11 interviews. Any of the last shortlisted 5 applicants could have done the job. We ended up with the most outstanding candidate among them at less than 10% of the cost of alternate recruitment agencies.
Thanks Employment Office!

We found the process to be hassle free and effective. Liaising with us at each stage of the recruitment campaign, right from the design of the job ad and filter questions, gave us confidence that we would succeed in getting the right candidate.

Tina was extremely professional and thorough in her dealings with us during our recent recruitment campaigns. She helped us navigate the process with ease and was generous with her time while we learnt the ropes. We have ended up with some great candidates! We will definitely be using Employment Office for future recruitment.
Cathy Saunders, HR Manager Community Restorative Centre (CRC)
Due to the nature of our business, the EO process has proven time and again to be a cost effective method of recruitment that does not take away our control over the shortlisting process of candidates (and therefore the quality of the candidates). Adam is always great to deal with as he is very personable and thorough in his approach to each recruitment role.
Sandra McLeod UAP Studio
Nganampa Health Council
Using Employment Office for our recruitment campaigns was very cost effective. The short listing process saves a lot of time and I appreciated having someone available for second opinions, to act as a sounding board and for advice on questions to ask and personality traits to look for.
David Busuttil Nganampa Health Council
With the assistance of Ben from the Employment Office team we advertised for a Training Coordinator.
The campaign was highly successful and Stacey provided us with a great short-list of candidates for interview. The process up to the point of placement was very thorough, very professional and really interesting to see unfold. In using the online recruitment system, SCOUT, I could be involved as much as I wanted, at a time that suited me. Employment Office were happy to keep things moving around my schedule.
Employment Office provided us with a comprehensive end-to-end recruitment service. The level of services, responsiveness and overall professionalism provided really was value for our money. We will definitely use Employment Office again if we have recruitment needs in the future.
Frances Cameron Agsafe
Ewamian Aboriginal Corporation
Thank you for your assistance in the recruitment process for our Ranger Coordinator. Not only has it saved us money but also saved us a lot of time in the screening process. The statistics are very interesting.
We have made the offer following the interview process in which 5 people were interviewed, and it has been accepted. The successful candidate will be starting work with us on Monday. Thank you also for notifying all unsuccessful candidates.
It was a pleasure to have Employment Office assist us in this process and we look forward to working with you in the future.
The campaign created by Employment Office worked extremely well. Candidate questions were well designed, appropriate to the role, and very specific, drawing the required information. The selection system, provided through your SCOUT eRecruitment system, worked very well and streamlined the process.
The regular support and assistance, provided by phone, over the campaign duration and beyond, was most appreciated & we enjoyed working with Employment Office again.
Marnel LaGarde, Manager Parramatta/Holroyd Family Support Inc
Being old-school, using an on-line recruitment marketing service was a new & different direction to go in.
The position was advertised in an expansive range of websites, casting the net very wide, attracting a much larger number of qualified candidates than provided by an agency. I would not hesitate to use Employment Office again.
Graham Holbrook, Owner Living Simply
Employment Office presents our vacancies to the broadest candidate market in the most professional manner, this has enabled us to acquire a higher volume and calibre of candidate for various support to senior level vacancies
Dealer Principal Onetrak
Black and White Cabs
I would like to say thank you for assisting us with our recruitment needs for the last year, it has put us in a much better position to fulfil our driver supply.
During the period of the campaign, we had a 25% success rate for all individuals who applied via this process.
Your role as our Account Manager was invaluable to our needs and you were always available when required.
I would have no hesitation in using Employment Office again for our needs.
Mick Skinner, Manager Fleet Operations Black and White Cabs
Victoria Daly Shire Council
Victoria Daly Shire Council have used Employment Office for four years now and work together on a number of vacancies each month due to the size of council.
With our remote location, we have to advertise nationwide. Anyone involved with recruiting could identify with the amount of work involved in the coordination of this sort of advertising presence – the HUGE benefit is that all of this is handled by Employment Office, yet we retain the choice and control of the message.
The advertisements look great, and the result is attraction of a wide variety of relevant applications for final choice… compared to the limited amount we previously received due to our geographical challenges. I would recommend Employment Office as they worked with us to tailor their offering to OUR needs – and they get results.
Trudy Braun, HR Manager Victoria Daly Shire Council
I have found the access to all candidate documents online and in one place, exceptionally easy to use. The shortlisting criteria that we set and the ability to listen to candidate interviews online are incredibly powerful tools in trying to select the right candidate. I would highly recommend the service that Employment Office offers.
Tim Madgwick, General Manager Tropicair
I just wanted to say thank you for running the assessment day yesterday for us. The whole day was very well run from the get go and a great success on the day. Out of the 10 participants that turned up on the day, we had interviews with six of them and out of those six, have five that we would consider giving employment to.
I feel that this is a great way forward for Corporate Traveller and indeed Flight Centre as a whole for future recruitment. We felt that the day gave us plenty of scope to test and observe our candidates and as you had mentioned, cause us to change our minds as the day progressed as different skill sets emerged (or were discovered to not be quite there).
For our initial cost of approx $8000, should we employ all five of these people in our business, it would work out at a $1600 recruitment cost per person…a steal!
Grant Spedding, Operational Leader Corporate Traveller
FCm Travel Solutions
We have just completed our first exercise with Employment Office. We received a total of 82 applications mostly within 72 hours of the position being advertised. From the questions answered by applicants we were able to finalise our one on one interviews and select a total of eight new staff within a further 72 hours. The assistance rendered by Employment Office in drafting the questions and generally in preparing the advertisements was tremendous. To summarise….a great campaign and very successful, thanks to the efficient team at Employment Office.
Noel Hobson, Assistant Team Leader FCm Travel Solutions
