    Hi.

    David here, from Verve Recruitment.

    I’m here to be the main point of contact for Verve Recruitment @ Flying Solo. I’m new to the site, and new to Social Networking, so please be gentle.

    We’ve joined Flying Solo because we’ve been looking for a small business focused website for years, so glad we finally found one.

    We believe that we know a thing or two about recruitment so hopefully we’ll be able to answer a few questions and help the community in our own special way.

    I’d like to note though that we feel that Verve Recruitment is very different to the majority of recruitment agencies out there, so please don’t view us in the same way. We’re doing something different and we feel that we offer the market something that’s needed – an extremely high value recruitment and candidate short listing service.

    Hi David,

    Welcome aboard. You can go into your control panel and add a signature with a link to your website if you wish, that is allowed.

    I know that there have been a few topics on recruiting staff recently, so look forward to having you on board. One of the key things as a small business, is trying to understand the obligations as a first time employer, from workers comp, superannuation, income tax, minimum wages etc. Any info you have in these areas will definitely be appreciated by FS members looking to employ staff for the first time.

    All the best

    Thanks for the welcome, Agent.

    We don’t really specialise in giving advice for the legal issues that you mentioned above, that’s not our domain. We’ll help where we can but that’s not our focus.

    We’re more involved in the practical processes in regards to recruiting. The advertising for, interviewing and selection of applicants, and we’ll be more than happy to help in regards to such topics.

    No worries – Just a couple of opinion points on your website:

    1. As a recruitment site, I would have expected to see a list somewhere of the jobs you have available, or at least a link to your jobs on Seek.
    2. The training search links to another page that google cannot find (at least when I click it)

    Hope this helps

    @ AgentMail

    Yes we don’t list our current vacancies on our website, no particular reason other than they’re all listed at Seek.com.au. If you’d like to have a look at the jobs we’re currently working on do a keyword search on Seek for Verve Recruitment and they should all come up. I will mention though that we only like to receive applications from those applicants genuinely interested in the positions being advertised.

    And you’re absolutely right about the training functionality on our website. We’ve ceased our relationship with the training provider concerned and we’ve not adjusted our website as yet to reflect that. Really, that’s one of the things we should get round to doing. We’ve been searching for new training partners but we’ve not quite found a match as yet. Maybe we could be introduced to some relevant training partners here, hadn’t thought of that.

    We do have plans to implement a new website in the next year or two and in the meantime we want to get a better understanding of how best to use and implement Social Networking as well as perhaps introducing new partners and services. So we’ve got a bit of time to play with before we’re ready for a website relaunch.

    Thanks Jayne, you’re most kind. I should let you know that flattery will get you everywhere :)
