I registered with four temping agencies in Darwin and Avant was definitely the friendliest and most welcoming agency and the one that I was most convinced would be trying to find me work. I felt the Avant Consultant really made an attempt to get to know me and what sort of work would suit me. Some other agencies I visited didn't have any conversation with me at all; all I did was fill out forms. Avant is also the only agency who did find me work! Thank you Avant!!
Katey Justice – July 2011
The Avant Consultant has been great, kept in excellent contact and provided me with all the information I have required to fulfil my duties.
Bobbie Denehey - Jan 2011
Congratulations on your high quality customer service, and on attracting and providing such a high quality candidate. The Avant Candidate placed with us always conducts her work in a professional manner with minimal supervision in a busy work environment.  
GTNT Chief Executive Officer, Kathryn James - June 2012
When it comes to planning and managing (pre and post event) corporate team away and team building days, Avant sets a very high standard. The KPMG Darwin Team Away Day had a strategic focus. The brief was simple - help the team to further develop our corporate vision. The event planning and delivery was excellent, Alison created an inclusive program that allowed our large team (40+) to build, share and communicate a business vision. The program was very smart and people focused, and it made our staff think about how they fit into the business, what their responsibilities are and how they can help with the big picture plan. A major benefit of the day was that through a process of two way communication, team building and individual goal setting, the whole partnership is now held accountable for delivering on the agreed outcomes and action plans of the day. The feedback from the team was excellent, with the day mostly being described as FUN! At the end of the day, our team walked away feeling like part of a bigger picture, part of a family, it was a real bonding experience that signalled a major shift in group dynamics and how we operate as a team. It is a day that we all have fond memories of and one that is going to take some beating. We are already starting to think about the next one...Thanks Avant!!

Avant provided a professional training session from start to finish that exceeded the outcome expectations that I had. I would recommend this session in the future. Thank you.
Lauren Gill - SkyCity - July 2013
I am very impressed with the personal service provided to the whole recruitment process from outset to fruition, by senior Avant Management. No detail was left outstanding and a very insightful approach was used throughout. This made for a thorough and effective  recruitment and initiation exercise benefitting both employer and candidate.
Workboats Northern Australia, Ian Blackman - July 2012
The professionalism, communication, feedback and support has been unsurpassed.  Also the warmth and friendliness of all that I have had contact with has been stunning.

Open Lines of Communication

Open Lines of Communication

In an ideal world, open communication equates to parties encouraging a free exchange of ideas, beliefs and information.  Parties being able to approach each other directly with questions or concerns or being able to constructively challenge something they don’t agree with. Sounds reasonable?  Of course it does!  Yet in a large majority of workplaces this theory is not given the priority it deserves.

Open communication is a complex concept. It’s about having a strong foundation of mutual trust and respect; of actively seeking feedback; encouraging the opinion of others; and supporting people to contribute their knowledge, ideas, perspectives and experience.

When there isn’t open communication:


Work and Life in the Northern Territory

Making the move out of your comfort zone and into a different state or territory presents a unique set of opportunities and challenges.
