Melbourne, Australia (PRWEB) February 03, 2015
After experiencing a period of rapid growth last year, Outsource Australia took the decision to expand their services further across Australia. To keep up with the needs of their ever growing client base and promote their products to a larger demographic the firm opened a new office in Melbourne. This is the first step in their proposed plans for a full scale national expansion. Since expanding to Melbourne the firm has noticed that some of the city’s most successful industries promote and support the same skills that they themselves look for in the sales and marketing industry, and as such, the firm are excited by the high levels of talent Melbourne has to offer.
Industries such as travel, tourism and hospitality are currently thriving in Melbourne, and with huge retail venues such as the Chadstone Shopping Centre - which is the largest of its kind in southern hemisphere - providing quality customer service is a major priority within the city. With Melbourne attracting such a volume of high end fashion labels to its famous retail venues, working within these industries has become highly competitive and in order to provide customers with a memorable, positive experience, businesses within these industries are constantly promoting advanced customer service, time management and communication skills. Outsource Australia believe that strong customer service skills are vital to sales and marketing and are highly impressed by the commitment Melbourne’s workforces have shown to improving the customer experience.
As well as high quality customer service skills, Outsource Australia have also been impressed by Melbourne’s sporting attributes and believe that the skills nurtured and perfected in sports are hugely transferrable to business and in particular, to the sales and marketing industry. Melbourne is widely regarded as the sports capital of Australia and is home to three major annual sporting events: the Australian Open, The Melbourne Cup and the Australian Grand Prix. As well as hosting these major international events, football and cricket are also incredibly popular in the city and it’s the disciplines gained from participating in these team sports that can help people excel in the workplace. In a fast paced industry such as sales and marketing, having a healthy competitive nature can help individuals focus and achieve their goals. Team sport also promotes leadership and team work skills which helps people to recognize the strengths in others and work with these strengths to form a complete unit, which increases productivity and efficiency.
Outsource Australia are keen to tap in to these unique skills demonstrated by the Melbourne workforce, and in return are offering candidates who choose to join them on the expansion the opportunity to further their business skills through their business development program. The program is open to all of Outsource Australia’s representatives and shares the knowledge and skills needed to become an influential and successful business leader. The firm believe that the winning combination of sporting skills and customer service is what makes Melbourne a truly exciting place to do business, and as such are keen to meet with people who have these skills are who are looking to start a career with real progression opportunities.
