Blake Oliver is a high-end recruitment firm focusing on the insurance space in Australia. Having started the business 2 years ago, Managing Director Daniel Marsh is on a mission to establish the company as the trusted provider in the industry through a long-term consultative approach that delivers better value and results for clients.
In a recent conversation, he shared with us how having the right CRM is helping the team realise his vision.[/ultimate_heading]
Since launching, the team has grown to 14 people and we have offices in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. In future, we will not only focus on general insurance but also its specific sub-sectors, such as life and health insurance etc.[/ultimate_heading]
Secondly, we have a completely different approach to working with clients, building long-term relationships that add value and deliver better results. Essentially, we take care of all our client’s recruitment needs – not just ad hoc recruitment assignments. This ensures a consistent approach and reduces turnover, as we’re able to source high quality candidates that fit the role and also the company’s culture.
Lastly, we’re affiliated with government bodies, including ANZIF and UAC, and also sponsor the Australian General Insurer of the Year Award. We’re working with our industry partners to further develop the eco-system in Australia.[/ultimate_heading]
For us specifically, having a CRM like Recruitment Boost helps us achieve our vision in that everything is recorded and transparent. Every job, every interaction with clients and candidates is visible in one place. Everyone in the team can be up to date with the latest developments on every opportunity.
This ensures we deliver a more professional and streamlined service – especially as our client relationships are long-term. This is particularly important when we onboard new team members.[/ultimate_heading]
We looked at various companies. In the end we decided to go with Recruitment Boost because of how intuitive and easy the system is. It provides us with exactly the features we need for half the price and it can easily be scaled to grow with our business.[/ultimate_heading]
Since using the system, we’ve had no downtime and any bugs or feedback are resolved or implemented with the ongoing updates. It’s been very reliable.[/ultimate_heading]
