Martene Harvey is putting 20 years of health industry experience to excellent use in her new business - Frontline Health Recruitment.
Beginning her career as a dietitian before clocking up 13 years experience in health-related roles in Switzerland, Martene most recently worked as a regional sales manager for healthcare company Abbott Laboratories
Martene’s various roles had encompassed staff recruitment, so when the opportunity came up last October to run her own business, she bought Frontline Recruitment’s franchise rights to Melbourne’s health sector.
Covering recruitment right across the health field, she finds qualified staff for services including pharmaceutical, hospital, rehabilitation and aged care – from nurses and physiotherapists to speech pathologists, to sales and marketing, administration and managerial staff.
Martene chose a Tok Corporate Centre suite as her company’s home, as she needed a corporate workplace to present a corporate image: “I needed a corporate place to bring both clients and candidates to, which looks more professional than a home office.”
“I looked at a few serviced offices around the city, but I loved the set up of this office, the convenience of the location and the ease of parking for clients.”
As a one-man-show (with a view to expansion) Martene is also making the most of TCC’s reception, which she says is extremely handy for a start-up business like hers.
“I have lots of calls coming through, so rather than being interrupted and have to drop what I am doing, or have calls go to voicemail, its great to know that clients are properly tended to,” she said. “Reception also provides a nice welcome when a client/candidate enters the building, as the girls are great and really friendly. It’s important, because really, they are the face representing my company too.”
Anyone looking for work or to recruit staff in any health-related field, please feel welcome to call Martene on 03 9296 2067. Small businesses and new start-ups can also learn more about the affordability and benefits of Tok serviced offices by
