New Year, New You!

Are you wanting to start the New Year on the right foot? Looking for a career change and want to join an organisation with a focus on professional development, high-performance and a strong team culture? With opportunities available in the New Year, now is the time to join us and change your career direction in 2020.

Attend our Careers Information Event!

As Employment Office promises a revolutionary way to recruit, we wouldn't expect any less of our internal recruitment efforts. We do recruitment differently than most businesses, which means our process is a little different than you'd expect.

We're keen to meet you face to face and have a coffee or a glass of wine with you in a relaxed, but professional, setting.

You can expect to meet some of our leadership team, hear our thoughts on the future of recruitment, and learn more about this career opportunity. You’ll leave with a little gift including a print out of your McQuaig behavioural profile.

Our Group and Growth Plans

Employment Office is part of the Scout Talent Group - a group of Australian companies dedicated to recruitment marketing, talent attraction and digital innovation.

Our Group brands are comprised of:

  • RecruitShop - offering a simple and effective flat-fee recruitment product aimed at SMEs
  • Employment Office - a recruitment marketing organisation that makes it easy for mid-sized organisations to attract, recruit and onboard the best talent
  • Scout Talent - a recruitment tech business, offering best of breed talent engagement, recruitment and onboarding software to mid- and large-sized organisations around the world
  • NetEngine - a custom software, web and mobile development company that works with start-ups and established organisations all over the world to bring their digital visions to life

Together we have over 100 employees and offices in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Vancouver.

Our steady growth over the last decade, coupled with our services-enabled-software strategy, sets us up well for our three year plan to IPO.

It’s an exciting time to join the team and we’re looking for A-Players who want to contribute to and be part of what will be a busy, challenging, rewarding next stage in our evolution.

The Opportunity

We're currently recruiting for our next intake of Sales & Account Executives.

This is a phone-based, outbound sales position that will see you connecting with prospects over the phone, having quality conversations about their recruitment needs and our service offerings, and ultimately closing sales.

Once you’ve successfully landed a sale, you’ll also act as an Account Manager for your clients, building and maintaining a strong relationship that will lead to repeat business and long term success. You’ll liaise with the client and our Specialist teams to coordinate efforts and ensure a flawless execution of our services.

We won’t lie - it’s a tough gig and it’s not for everyone. That being said, if you’ve got the drive to build a customer base of your own, this could be just the role for you. Our Specialist Teams are also here to support you in your sales journey by joining you on calls with potential clients, offering expertise and insights into our offering, and bringing to light the advantages of working with EO.

Who will thrive in this role?

  • A hungry sales professional who’s ready for a challenge - ideally you’ll have corporate, B2B sales experience
  • A nice balance between business development and account management skills - you get to do both in this role
  • A strong communicator who genuinely enjoys engaging with others over the phone
  • Someone who’s enthusiastic and friendly - we have a pretty awesome team (if we do say so ourselves) and want to keep it that way

Why is this opportunity available?

Right now, our Melbourne team is pretty small. Quite simply, we want to grow quickly and we need more people to achieve this.

We want to build a busy, bustling office full of switched on, energetic, and enthusiastic people who are invested in what we do, and keen to be part of our bright future.

Melbourne is a key location for us with many of our clients and prospects based in this beautiful city. While you won’t be limited to a specific territory in your sales prospecting efforts, there is so much opportunity in Victoria and we need more local team members to capitalise on it!

The Benefits

This is a unique chance to play a key part in the growth of our Melbourne business.

We will be offering a rewarding salary with a commission structure (OTE $70,000 - $80,000 - in your first year) that reflect the calibre of sales professional that will excel in this role. Our office is centrally located on Lonsdale Street, just around the corner from the famous Hardware Lane.

Not to mention, if you have your eye on leadership, this is a step in the right direction! To be a leader in our business you don't need prior management experience - we'll teach you what you need to know and support you as you develop into a leadership position. Our Team Leaders manage their own P&Ls and enjoy ongoing conferences, development sessions, and online MiniMBA courses. This focus on internal development and promotion offers exciting opportunities you won't find elsewhere.

The pressure’s on in this fast-paced, high-performance environment. Our top performers enjoy an annual all expenses paid international trip and everyone attends our quarterly celebrations where your hard work is recognised and rewarded. We even have an 'EO Exchange Program' where you'll be flown to our Canadian business for a couple of weeks, after 18 months with us!

Most importantly, the work we do at EO is significant. We create valuable connections for employers and jobseekers day in and day out, and we you want to be a part of it.
