Candidate Testimonial – Anuraag Amatinthala

At Logical we like to #SharetheLove and #MakeSomeoneHappy. We are proud to say this was the case for Anuraag!

Debbie recently placed Anuraag in the role of HCM Business Development Manager with Ascender.

Logical’s relationship with Ascender started about 3 years ago with our Director Gill when she first opened our Melbourne office. Ascender are a market leader in payroll solution, Off the back of a recent acquisition their product base has extended to HR management allowing a more unified solution from employee requisition to performance, HR, and payroll management. Due to this we have been working with Ascender to help scale up talent across the wider business.

Anuraag was referred to Logical by another candidate who had recently had a good experience with us. When we were first introduced, Debbie spent time understanding what it was that was important to Anuraag. We like to know what makes our candidates tick, we want to know about their experience, work/life balance, future goals, is their key motivator financial or is it the opportunity to expand their skill set? From there we can assess the candidates wants and needs against the requirements and opportunities offered by our client base. Turns out Debbie was right and Anuraag made a great impression on Rob, the hiring manager at Ascender.

We Like to help our candidates be successful through being transparent and thoroughly managing the interview process. “Debbie prepped me well, going over details of the company, role and gave me insight on the hiring manager, which really helped when I flew down to meet Rob in person”.

As Anuraag was based in Brisbane and the role was in Melbourne. It took a bit of co-ordination to schedule three interviews, but this was made achievable due to Debbie’s great relationship and open channel of communication with both the candidate and client. “I found the overall process was seamless on both the recruitment and employer side”. The interview process ended up only taking three weeks, an impressive feat given the different states!

“I would definitely recommend Logical to any friends or colleagues who are on the market. The best part about my experience is finding a role I wanted, within my initial expectations”. We really try to find the best fit for both candidate and client and pride ourselves in being transparent in setting expectations of suitability. “I have dealt with other recruiters who would push me towards roles that were not quite right but with Debbie she picked what was the best fit for me”.

Anuraag has been with Ascender for 4 weeks and has settled in nicely. “I’m just really happy! Thank you Logical, Keep doing what you’re doing!”

Thanks Anuraag for taking the time to share your feedback and welcome to Melbourne!

New to Melbourne and ‘knee-deep’ in technology!

Everyone knows the IT market is hot and Australia is a hub for super talented individuals to fast forward their careers with ambitious businesses.  My new role is throwing me in the deep end of all things Talent and Consulting in this wonderful space, however, I’ve a team orientated employer to help me bolster my technical experience from the past and put it into action in my new home!

Having worked for a SaaS based company for 5 years and leading various IT recruiting projects with the Australian Federal Government, I’ve seen firsthand how rapidly technology is evolving, impacting the way we see the world and more than ever I want to be a part of the evolution!

After relocating from Canberra, I wanted an opportunity which empowered me to work in a diverse range of technology, somewhere I could really develop. Logical gave me that chance, offering me a role which met my expectations.  With various clients, diverse roles, unlimited pool of candidates and a fresh approach to adding customer value.

I developed a strong interest in SaaS, revolutionising the licencing and delivery model in which software is licensed on a subscription basis and is centrally hosted.  Studies say that 75% of apps will be SaaS-powered by 2020. From a common delivery model for many business applications including Human Resource Management, Payroll processing, Accounting, Customer Relationship Management, Service Desk Management to name a few, it has become the preferred choice for companies because of its scalability, easy upgradation and no need to rely on installing and running servers.

Australia is known for tech start-ups. Few of them are: Power Ledger, Active Port, HUMM Technologies, Frigbot and Spinify. More than 50 Australian startups founded since 2011 are valued over $100 million, out of which 15 are valued over $500 million and 6 are worth more than $1 billion. These companies represent a combined enterprise value of more than $300 billion and creation of 10,000 new jobs.

At Logical, we provide talent management and consulting services to tech startups and established businesses to enhance, improve & mature the Talent Life Cycle.

Let’s network!

From Machine Operators to Next-Gen Technology and the 7 years in between

Boy is this travelling kiwi glad she kept in touch with her old boss! I first worked with the team 7 years ago when I visited the UK on a working holiday visa and was recently given the opportunity to re-join the Logical family in their Melbourne office.

I was already in a great role, heading up a customer service team in the financial services industry but the picture of a newly evolved Logical took my interest.

After leaving England to move closer to home, with my husband being an engineer, we settled in Melbourne due to its market leading industry for technology.

In the past 7 years I have worked my way from customer service consultant in personal insurance to a service and settlements team leader for a fleet management company, with my own small retail start up in between.

My core skills are in customer centric processes, data and business operations. Some of my key achievements have been in designing training materials for on boarding processes, taking a department paperless by implementing efficient ways to work online and more recently building a customer service team from the ground up and leading them to stability, which I turn boosted moral and assisted in changing office culture in a positive way.

From a fresh out of uni backpacker to an experienced office professional, Logical didn’t recognise me at first but I didn’t recognise them either. Expanding an established UK based business in to the States and Australia, Logical now offer talent services such as; Building Talent Brands & Attraction Strategies, Improving broken HR & Recruitment Processes, Building Talent Pools & Increasing Workforce Capability, Workforce Management & Compliance.  Overall, creating desirable & happy cultures in the workplace.

In what feels like a life time apart, we have both definitely grown for the better.

What’s my role?

I will be focusing on supporting the team with data, marketing and connecting with talent. I will also look to challenge processes so we can build better efficiencies across our global brand.

I have always had an interest in technology and look forward to the challenge of learning the ins and outs of what drives our modern world. Luckily my daily commute allows for plenty of down time to study, I am currently on the look out for some informative podcasts, if you have any suggestions lets connect or comment below to help a girl out!!
