Did you know that you can outsource your payroll function to Optimum? Or that we run executive search campaigns? And did you know Optimum is able to provide a range of Human Resource Consulting services including performance management advice, salary benchmarking, panel interview representation, psychometric profiling and outplacement programs? And did you know we offer unbundled recruitment services such as phone screening or reference checking to take some burden off your recruitment process?

Optimum is well known for our quality recruitment service covering temporary, fixed term contract and permanent placements across accounting, financial services, information technology, government, business support, mining and engineering. However we offer much more than meets the eye. A couple of recent examples are:

  • For one of our key clients we have recently managed their payroll function during the start-up phase of this major Queensland resources project. The organisation did not have the personnel to run the payroll during the early stages and required our help, so they could focus their existing staff on the core engineering project work and not on administrative support functions. After several months as the organisational structure was put in place, the client no longer required our outsourced payroll services and they brought the function in-house. Optimum provided a valuable and service offering that was essential during the early stages of the project and we have continued the relationship and we are currently providing specialist recruitment services as the project develops.
  • Following the sale of a division, one of our clients made several staff redundant. Optimum has provided outplacement services to these staff including thorough candidate competency based interviewing and career counselling, resume writing and Linkedin profile advice, psychometric assessment and report review, and job search action plans tailored to suit the individual. We are currently assisting these candidates with their job search.
  • We have recently run an executive search program for a client recruiting a CEO. This role was not advertised and the search process was undertaken with utmost discretion. The process was well planned and executed and it resulted in successful placement with minimal disruption to the clients’ operations.

So as you can see, there is more to Optimum than just recruitment. Call one of our team to learn more on (07) 3228 8400 in Queensland or (08) 9421 6100 in Western Australia.
