Providing our Customers with the Best Tech Solutions #becauseitmatters

Testimonial of Rebecca Teague

As new technologies change our digital landscape, the demand for highly skilled IT professionals increases to match. Our recruiters from Progressive, an SThree brand, work hard to stay one step ahead of the curve, always evolving to match the changing demands of this market, and continue to provide our customers with the best solutions for their needs.

Rebecca Teague, an Application Development & Digital Specialist working for Progressive in Sydney, works hard to secure contract placements, to help her candidates and clients achieve their goals.

We asked some of her customers how working with Rebecca and Progressive has steered their careers and businesses in the right direction.

Great opportunity

Thanks to working with Progressive, Peter, one of Rebecca’s candidates, recently changed roles to join an established entertainment group and says it’s made a big difference to his career.

“Rebecca managed to secure an interview and role pretty quickly from the time of the first contact to signing the contract.”

He continues, “I’m enjoying this new role. It’s been a great opportunity to develop new projects using the latest technology; it’s a large part of my life, most of your waking hours, so you really can’t get this wrong.”

“My experience with Progressive has been a very positive one. I would say they stand out among their peers.”

Making a mark

Joining one of Australia’s largest telecommunications companies, Sumit, another of Rebecca’s candidates, says that Progressive provided the platform he needed.

“The role is very much what I would have wanted, and what I was looking for. Working with one of the top organisations is always quite fascinating, and it’s even more exciting when you get a task which you really feel good about,” he explains.

“It was important to me to find the right working environment and Rebecca helped me with this.” He continues, “Working in a good work environment makes your tasks easier. A healthy environment results in opportunities for growth, and a sense of responsibility are key criteria for any employee.”

“My opinion of recruitment has certainly changed since working with Progressive. My work has been made hassle-free and support has been made available even during the Christmas break… it’s been fantastic,” says Sumit.

Understanding our business

Simon, manager at a security software organisation, also appreciates the service he received from Progressive when his company was looking for new employees to join their team.

“The team from Progressive, especially Rebecca and Nicola, understand our business well to ensure suitable candidates make it through to us. For me, this is a big advantage of having the personal service which saves us a huge amount of time sifting through resumes which are not the right fit.”

“We’ve taken on some great people thanks to Progressive. One in particular was an urgent contractor we hired recently to get us across the line of a critical project. He was one of those rare gems that made a huge difference to the velocity of our project.”

“I believe that the value of recruitment can help shape an industry; it’s about hiring the right people in the right roles and ensuring they have a clear path for career progression,” says Simon.
