【What are the benefits of working at Optia?】

▸ Career Opportunity
Recruitment consultancy genuinely offers the opportunity for accelerated career progression. It is a meritocratic profession with the best performers being promoted through the career structure.

❝I’ve been promoted 6 times in my 7 years’ stint, from Junior Researcher to Industry Partner. At Optia, you’re in the driver’s seat of your career – take it as far as you want.❞
✦ Chee Estanislao, Industry Partner

▸ Financial Reward
Recruitment is a sales based role and a significant proportion of your income will be from commission and bonuses on top of your basic salary. Once you are competent, having completed your initial training and started making placements you can look forward to impressive quarterly commissions. It is realistic to be doubling your salary by the end of your first year and seeing it increase from there.

❝Recruiting is one of the few professions where you really are the master of your destiny. If you achieve market mastery, the financial rewards follow. Optia has allowed me to achieve a degree of financial independence that would have taken me 20+ years in any other profession.❞
✦ Nick Borg, Industry Partner

▸ Autonomy, Responsibility and Job Satisfaction
When you start your career in recruitment you will receive plenty of training and close supervision. Once you are up and running you will experience a real sense of job satisfaction that comes from managing your own workload. In many ways it becomes like running your own business. You are responsible for becoming an expert in your own market and developing a great reputation with your clients and candidates. Once you’ve done this you become a trusted partner, acting as a true consultant by providing advice and guidance.

▸ Fun & Interesting
Recruitment businesses rightly have a reputation for being lively and fun places to work. We have a strong team ethic and you are likely to find yourself working and socializing with a like-minded group of people. You will have the opportunity to also partner with some of the best candidates and companies in the market, gaining unique insights on the inner workings of global firms.

❝It's fantastic to be able to continuously learn from successful veterans around me. It’s inspiring to have supportive and like-minded people around you who genuinely make you feel that it’s fun to come to work every single day.❞
