I have been extremely happy with the support that I have received from Avant. I feel that they are always there for me and have gone out of their way to make things suit my work requirements/needs and are always a pleasure to deal with.
Shannon Manning - April 2011
I would like to say a huge thank you to you & everyone else at Avant for your support & professionalism over the last couple of months. The genuine warmth and friendliness of everyone I have dealt with at Avant is unrivalled. All communication has been timely and professional, and the regular follow up by phone and onsite visits demonstrates the supportiveness of the team. I have never felt like 'just another number' and the service provided by Avant goes above and beyond that of other agencies. I will be recommending Avant to both employers and job seekers.

"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.

When there isn’t open communication:
