Great not to have to worry about advertising and interviewing, everything was done for me and the selection for the position was a good match.
AANT, Kerry Clarkson - June 2011
"Alison and her team were extremely helpful and professional throughout our search for a permanent person.  I had the utmost confidence in Avant's ability to source appropriate candidates as a result of the thorough assessment process they facilitated in getting to understand what kind of person we were looking for and why.  They were a delight to work with and we are extremely satisfied with the person we ended up recruiting. I would have no hesitation in using Avant as our preferred recruitment agency or in recommending them to other organisations." - January 2013

I HONESTLY think you guys give the best service out of all the Darwin Employment Agencies for office  staff; You stick to being honest if you don't have anyone that fits the bill rather than just send what you have, and when you do send candidates they are always exactly what we are looking for. Your agency personifies what we look for in an Agency!

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.
