Testimonials from industry
Marc Miller, Director Corporate Development & Strategy, McKesson Asia-Pacific
McKesson Asia Pacific is currently exploring business expansion opportunities in Asia and the Middle East and recruited Jeff to support this expansion. Jeff plays an important role in the analysis and planning of the expansion, and his the ability to work autonomously with little supervision is an important trait . This is exactly the type of individual required in our organisation.
I think SydneyTalent is a good business model. If you can access students before graduation then you can select the top performers.
Gerald Thomas, Founder/CEO, Sussex Partners
What attracted us to SydneyTalent was the ability to access quality students in a structured way that we knew protected the students and us. The flexibility of changing the skill mix required as the project developed was also important.
The SydneyTalent employees fitted in very well and worked well with me. They brought in skills we did not have in design and content management. At the outset we thought we needed a team of three, [but] we got a multi-talented project manager who covered two of the skill sets.
Yves Roussange, Managing Director, ColourProcess
I contacted SydneyTalent when I needed a Marketing Assistant who was motivated, a fast learner, and willing to take a proactive approach. I have good instincts about people, and when I met Zoe I felt confident I had found the right person. The recruitment process was made easy – I simply made my decision and the next day she was on board.
Zoe started strongly and hasn’t looked back. Her role involves all aspects of our marketing collateral at Colour Process, essentially writing and helping to design a raft of different materials – internal communications newsletters, trade show brochures, new product documents, special promotions. She’s very smart with the way she handles things and she is rapidly taking on more responsibilities, more leadership roles. She works in a small team and makes things happen.
I was impressed with the calibre of students I was able to select from, and I would definitely use SydneyTalent again.
Steven Zielke, CEO, Modsite
Working with SydneyTalent was a very good experience. As a German company coming to a local show it was mandatory for us to quickly find support locally. SydneyTalent was not only successful in finding the right person but was also quick and easy to work with. The selection process was already boiled down to pick from the very best.
Choosing Jessica was about trusting SydneyTalent on judging what is best for us. And she fit perfect. Her professionalism was noticed by potential customers. Her attitude was very good and she performed above expectations.
Wally McColl, Commercial Adviser, External Relations, University of Sydney
I find the recruitment process to be efficient, easy, professional, client-focussed and non-bureaucratic. There are no forms to fill and I control the decision-making process without a requirement for anyone else to be involved. Where I have sought a particular skill-set, I have provided a simple list of requirements to SydneyTalent and in every instance, have been provided with candidates who meet those requirements. I’ve been pleasantly surprised at the calibre of student employees with whom I’ve worked. They’ve shown maturity, had good technical skills and have had better commercial instincts than I expected. They’re enthusiastic and willing to learn.
Marlon Ornek, Operations Manager, Projects, FSAP Project Manager, University of Sydney
SydneyTalent's recruitment process is very professional and timely. They are excellent and a pleasure to work with. The student employees have great potential to work in either the public or private sectors.
Sandra Hardy, HR Director, University of Sydney Union
The whole process from the initial call requesting a role to be filled until the candidate finishes the contract is painless from our point of view. It is efficient, considerate of our needs, timely in response and most importantly, high quality candidates every time! All the students we have employed from Sydney Talent this year, have been first class. Their attitude, their work ethic is absolutely “work ready”. At the end of their degree the experience they have received through Sydney Talent and in the current employment market, will increase their opportunities to kick start their career to find the right position.
Mark Preston, Director, Financial Operations and Systems, The University of Sydney
My experience with SydneyTalent`s recruitment process has been excellent. SydneyTalent have engaged with my business extensively to understand our culture and behavioural competency requirements as well as our technical requirements to ensure that the most suitable students are presented to us. SydneyTalent`s student employees have been an excellent addition to my workforce because of their willingness to accept new challenges, their enthusiasm and continual ability to question the status quo and seek continuous improvements, their flexibility to meet deadlines and of course their high technical and analytical capability.
