SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA (Oct. 9, 2007) — Aquent, Australia’s leading global staffing firm, today announced the rebrand of its business support operations to Eloquent Staffing.
The Eloquent Staffing rebrand recognizes Aquent Business Support’s rapid success since its launch in 2004.
“We are delighted that Aquent Business Support has enjoyed such strong growth, from two staff in Sydney to six offices in three countries in just three years,” Aquent CEO Greg Savage said. “We felt the success and evolution of the division meant it was time to establish business support as its own separate entity.”
He added that a key factor in Aquent Business Support’s success was its specialist approach.
“Eloquent Staffing will continue to take a very niche approach, which is a reflection of Aquent’s own style. Eloquent Staffing has the advantage of being of a multi-national boutique specialist. It has access to an even wider pool of elite talent to make the perfect match for both our client and talent, while maintaining our local and personalised touch.”
The move will reinforce Aquent’s leading position in the areas of creative, marketing and communications recruitment while allowing its business support operations to maintain a similar specialist approach that has proven so successful.
Bell-Booth has extensive experience in business support recruitment. In 1998 at the age of 23, she established her own business, which was acquired by Aquent in 2004.
“I am thrilled about this new venture as it shows that our business support strategies are working. We take the time to listen to what our clients want and only ever send the candidates we think are best suited for the job,” Eloquent Staffing General Manager Michie Bell-Booth said.
“In fact, of the hundreds of potential candidates we screen, only 10 per cent of applicants are selected. It ensures we offer only the very best in business support. We’re even happy to put our money where our mouth is by offering a unique 110 per cent satisfaction guarantee for all clients.”
