MACRO voted as Runner Up in 2013 SARA award

From Daryl Keeley, MD of MACRO.

As you can imagine, we hadn’t really hoped to be telling everyone that we were the runner’s up.
MACRO was definitively in this to win the SARA award, so of course we are disappointed that we didn’t, but I suppose if you are destined to lose, then coming second against this particular group of prestigious competitors is quite an honour in itself.
With over 14,000 recruiters in Australia, being voted as Australia’s favourite recruitment agency was always going to be hard-fought contest.
While we can’t pretend that we are happy about coming second, it has been a privilege to take part.
We would like to say a big “thank you” to everyone involved.

Thank you SEEK for creating a well-run national contest that inspires the recruitment industry to lift its service level benchmark.
Thank you to all that voted for MACRO, your words of encouragement will long be remembered well after the dust has settled.
Thank you to everyone that voted in the SARA awards.
Regardless of whomever you voted for, your participation leads to encouraging the professionals in this often thankless and competitive industry to stay.

In the end, the result was very close and but we came second. Kudos to the winner, and we look forward to next year.

The 2009 SARAs, supported by the RCSA and now in their 7th year, were presented at an cocktail event in Sydney where the value the recruitment industry provides to both clients and candidates was publicly acknowledged.

This is the 5th year that MACRO has been involved in the award.
Each year we have managed to make the finals. Some we win, but like in this case, some we come second.

Thank you to all that voted, it is an honour for us to know that we are making a positive difference to you all.

Below are some randomly selected comments passed onto us by SEEK from voters:

I have received exceptional placement service from MACRO. They listens to your needs and give timely feedback on the status of your job application.  MACRO keeps in touch, especially when the role matches job requirements.  I have enjoyed talking to the team members. Wish all the best for this award!!

This is the most professional agency I have worked with.  They provide support structure suitable to any person seeking a position in most industries.  The people also provide information relating to the processes involved and keep in touch with the applicants on a regular basis to provide updates or advice.

MACRO Recruitment provides the best services, timely advice, pursue a candidate’s needs, precise to details, follow their obligations, never loosing contacts with a candidate.

They’ve got excellent service and they really go out of their way to make you happy. They’ve set a standard as to how a company should be.

Excellent follow up, great support and ongoing contact. The only recruitment company that I’d start with every time.
