Cazar announces expansion in Australia with joint ventureadmin
The Dubai-based enterprise recruitment solution company has announced its expansion into Australia through a joint venture agreement with well-established Australian consulting services provider, Ingenia.
Adelaide, Australia – August 28th 2013 – This latest move is part of Cazar’s continued growth plans in the Asia Pacific region, which began in 2012 when it opened its Hong Kong regional headquarter to support existing customers.
“With its strong track record in the software and consulting sector in Australia, Ingenia is the ideal partner to help spearhead our expansion into this market, where recruitment technology has significant growth potential,” says Guy Rickett, CEO of Cazar.
Andrew Hodges, General Manager of Ingenia states, “There has been a shift in the online recruitment landscape in Australia, and this represents a huge opportunity for both companies. Employers used to rely on one or two job posting sites. Now, they want to reach and attract top talent using all the latest online tools – from LinkedIn and specialist job boards to their own corporate career portal. They need the technology, tools and expertise to help them achieve this effectively.”
Studies show that the recruitment sector has indeed changed considerably in recent years. Today, an organisation’s career website can produce 50% of all new recruits , including senior management hires. As for social media, its usage amongst Australian employers is expected to double in the next 12 months.
Adrian Jeremiah, who was previously a Senior Manager at Cazar and who will be leading the development efforts with Ingenia as Consulting Manager, adds, “Capturing talent at the right time and right place is directly related to the efforts a company makes to find and engage with quality candidates. That is why Cazar’s offering not only includes its powerful Sniperhire talent acquisition cloud software but also distinctive recruitment marketing services, such as creating bespoke corporate career websites or developing smart candidate sourcing strategies.”
Cazar allows employers to reduce their time-to-hire cost-effectively, through a mix of technology, recruitment marketing services and expert guidance. Its Sniperhire platform is the leading cloud-based enterprise recruitment software in Asia and the Middle East. It automates every step of the corporate recruitment process, from requisition to on boarding. Cazar clients include leading employers such as Qatar Airways, Jumeirah Group and PWC.
Since its inception in 2009, Ingenia has grown to be a dynamic consultancy, and software provider, with offices in South Australia and the Middle East, servicing customers in the manufacturing, defense, mining, construction, transport and utility sectors.
Ingenia’s capabilities currently include Asset Management and Health checks, Engineering, Design & Drafting and Project management services, in addition to Organisational Development, and Candidate Selection & Recruitment.
The strategic alliance with Cazar will further enhance Ingenia’s suite of service offerings and expand their geographic reach.
