Getting the most from Blake Oliver Consulting

We can play a vital role in the world of Insurance recruitment as we identify the strongest candidates around and match them with appropriate roles available in the market. We rely heavily on our ability to build excellent relationships with our network of contacts, and our reputation within the Australian Insurance Markets. For any potential candidate, our consultants can be great people to know. With this in mind we have devised the following list to help you get the most out of working with us:

Always take a call from us. Even if you are not actively looking for a new challenge it is still beneficial to develop a strong relationship with us. At senior and executive recruitment levels, a wide network of good contacts can be very useful.

In some cases, the position that we are looking to fill may not have been made public, so liaising through us may be your only opportunity to express an interest. If one of our consultants contacts you about a position, feel free to ask any questions you may have, such as how they see you fitting in within that particular organisation. We should know as much about the role as our client themselves and will be more than happy to share the details with you. If you are contacted by us, identify what sort of call it is. Is it a sourcing call to see who you know and what contacts you have – or a targeted call where we know all about you and think you will be right for a role?

Our team will always encourage feedback so feel free to offer it. It’s only by receiving this that we can then understand how to better work with you in the future. Remember that we are working to place the best candidates for the job. We are very proud of the reputations we have with our clients and will not do anything to damage that reputation. Key to our approach is discretion, honesty, and confidentiality.

If you are thinking of moving jobs, identify someone from our team who understands your line of business and can demonstrate a good track record of placing candidates in the top jobs. Our experienced team will be able to offer you valuable career advice and guidance.

If you are placed in a job by Blake Oliver Consulting, this might be just the start of the relationship with us. Once we get to know you, the way you work and the sort of person you are we’ll be much better placed to help you recruit for members of your own team in the future.
