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!!

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.

My experiences of Avant Personnel have been that they are extremely efficient in all dealings throughout the process of applying for a position. All communications were timely and personable and staff were supportive during the process to a standard that is above and beyond what one would expect of a recruitment agency.

"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

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.

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:
