Role Ready was established in Feb 2011 by Maree Quinn, an experienced coach and trainer. Whilst working in recruitment she identified a clear need in the marketplace for resumes that 'sold' the candidate rather than listed a series of dates and titles. Role Ready was created to provide this service. "Employers will always be keen to find out how a potential employee can impact on the bottom line. The achievements they are often interested in are those that save time or reduce costs. No-one enjoys writing about themselves and it is one of the most difficult aspects of creating an effective resume."
The geographical area that rapidly embraced Role Ready was the southern suburbs of Brisbane; clients wanted to find someone local rather than a large company based in Brisbane's CBD. In addition, personalised service was reportedly missing in interactions clients had when looking for resume assistance. "There was a clear need for personalised service that allowed for the fact that many clients were still working full time and needed an after hours service. Also we found that many companies required clients to fill out lengthy forms prior to work being started; customers complained that they may as well write it themselves."
Rapid growth due to a client focussed approach lead to expansion and in June 2013 Role Ready became Role Ready Career Services and former employee Jessie Artes became a partner in the business. "We are enjoying a great referral rate and we are always gratified to receive news of success from our clients. Role Ready Career Services is suited to those looking for someone to make the resume creation process easy and affordable. We answer the phone personally and we get on with the job so you can find yours!"
