Another year on, and 2019 / 2020 was, let’s say, a different year to most, not just for us, but throughout Australia, and now the world. After enduring the Black Summer and set on the road to recovery; suddenly Australia was pulled into the catastrophic global pandemic now known as Covid-19; affecting the economy worldwide.
So, it’s with hope for the future and empathy for those that have suffered that I deliver this brief insight into the last year of NDR’s journey. 4 years on - time does fly when you’re having fun! Last year was no different to the previous 3. We had some great results and a few twists & turns, most importantly, learnt some valuable business lessons along the way. With a great team, office culture, mindset, awesome business partners and candidates; the past year has seen us enjoy more growth and market sustainability.
As we strive to find our business partners the very best talent on the market, it’s equally as important that we attract the best Consultants. 2019/20 was no different, with some cracking hires, we have been able to expand our Healthcare, Engineering & Manufacturing and Architectural & Design Divisions.
Danielle Jones joined us late 2019 as our Operations Manager and Healthcare Recruitment Team Manager. Danielle studied Healthcare Science at University before starting her career in recruitment 8 years ago. Partnering with leading global organisations within the pharmaceutical, consumer health, OTC and animal health industries; Danielle is an excellent problem solver, organiser and gets what we need done. A great asset and addition to our NDR team!
We were thrilled to also add Candece Baker to the Healthcare team. Having spent a decade assisting and helping others while working as a PA & EA in California within the Healthcare industry, Candece has taken to Recruitment Administration and now Consulting - just like a duck to water! Focusing on what she knows best; Candece is providing emerging healthcare companies with exceptional customer service and thorough professionalism.
Senior Consultant and BDM legend, Amanda Willey jumped on board; focussing on both the Architectural, Engineering & Manufacturing markets. A sales professional with 15 years of experience, Amanda is adaptable, extremely confident, tenacious and has a positive can do attitude! Together with the rest of the team here at NDR, Amanda has helped us grow and develop our client and candidate network.
We brought our socials and branding function in house, which was set up by Adrien Barrere and now managed by George Bull. George continues to update our socials weekly, creating and developing engaging posts across our presence on LinkedIn, Instagram and Facebook, his aim to create fantastic candidate experiences – talk about talented!
As we pride ourselves on the unique process that we offer both candidate and client and in a competitive environment where customer satisfaction is key, we decided to partner with Recruiter Insider, an outstanding tool for collecting feedback from both clients and candidates about their experiences throughout the recruitment process with NDR. We are excited to adopt this technology at NDR to monitor and improve Consultant performance and further strengthen our commitment to putting people first and getting hiring, Right First Time.
And to wrap up the year, October saw us move offices for the 3rd time, as we continue to grow and expand our team. We partnered with Forest Rugby Club, sponsoring a player for the 2020 season, and are looking forward to cheering on the sideline! We celebrated our end of Financial Year in July with Veronika winning our Consultant of the Year Award. Veronika has been a long-standing asset to the NDR team, with her engaging and veracious personality winning her the well-deserved Award!
While continuing to work closely with Volcano Marketing with Adam and the team updating our marketing, website and social media presence (check out our new movement website www.nextdayrecruitment.com.au). We also continue our relationship with Online Consulting, Sam and the team offering personalised consulting, implementation & support in all areas of IT - we would be lost without them!
2020 / 2021 looks full of promise as we continue to expand our Divisions, even during these difficult times. We have already developed further relationships with leading pharmaceutical and medical companies, as they roll out their diverse therapeutic projects, here in Australia. And we will continue to partner with innovative Engineering and Technology companies across Australia, as we aim to provide our clients with their greatest assets ‘Your people For Tomorrow.’ A massive thanks to the NDR team and everyone who has worked with us and supported us over the past 4+ years – especially the past 12 months! 2020 has had its challenges, but all in all, for Next Day Recruitment, it has been a year of continual growth and success. We look forward to what the future will bring!
