An Australian-based industrial recruitment company is getting better candidates and support from Indeed compared to other platforms.
OnSite Recruitment has been delivering upon their mission to fill a gap in the industrial sector recruitment market by successfully sourcing blue collar workers for clients in the fields of transport and logistics, civil construction, warehousing, production and manufacturing, and landscaping – among a few others.
While OnSite Recruitment adopts a dynamic approach to sourcing the best workers, either by capturing new candidates through their website, partners (Foresite Training & Arbortrim Australia), word of mouth, or online advertising, Indeed is becoming increasingly integral to their ongoing recruitment successes and consequential business growth.
A strong response and great results
As the business grew, so did the demand for quality candidates. This is why OnSite Recruitment turned to Indeed as a backup to ensure candidate flow was maximised across all their sources. But today, OnSite Recruitment General Manager and experienced recruiter of 11 years, Jarrod Hart, says they’re getting a better response from Indeed compared to other platforms.
In fact, half of all their job advertisements are now placed on Indeed with as many as 40 job postings currently active on the platform. “We’ve got a greater response rate since we introduced Indeed, and we have more support”.

The personal touch and going the extra mile
Jarrod believes Indeed is bringing something new to Australia’s previously limited job advertising market. He says “Indeed is bringing great customer service to the mix. While other platforms we’ve experienced rely solely on email correspondence, Indeed has been prepared to send a Sydney-based account manager to our site, which is 90 minutes from Melbourne airport. We know our account manager has our needs front of mind”.
Finding talent for hard-to-fill roles
Unlike recruiting for white collar jobs, which are mostly city-based, one of the biggest challenges in the field of industrial recruitment is sourcing candidates in remote and regional areas.
“I recently placed advertisements for jobs in remote towns that are hours away from Brisbane and the Gold Coast. I got a strong response, and within that response there were good candidates,” says Jarrod. “If I didn’t have this support from Indeed, I wouldn’t have been able to fill these roles”.
Cost effective hiring strategies
Small and growing businesses often struggle with the costs of hiring and inflexible online advertising platforms. But Jarrod says Indeed sets itself apart in the market with its unique technology and functionality that delivers what businesses really need.
“Without doubt, Indeed has helped the business scale. The platform continues to deliver results as our demands increase.”
