Diplomatik has had a hugely promising 2018 so far, with ongoing success leading to the need for national expansion. In July 2018 our Queensland office was added to our operations, with another announcement coming within the next few months.
Diplomatik has a great response in such a short time from businesses and labour suppliers in Queensland. This market has been crying out for assistance to combat skills shortages and for access to multiple labour providers without the costs.
Australia wide, our technology continues to grab attention with large employers needing to control and improve their engagement of external labour providers. Diplomatik’s new SME product is greatly assisting smaller sized businesses that couldn’t normally afford a panel to supply, but can now access these benefits through our innovative technology solution.
We chat to our new QLD manager Kylie Taylor about what enticed her to the role, and what is happening at the new Queensland HQ.
Here’s what she had to say:
What attracted you to Diplomatik and this position?
In January this year, I was approached by Diplomatik to take a look at their business model and was invited to discuss their business expansion into Queensland. Once I learned more about Quadzu and what Diplomatik was offering I was blown away, and I knew I wanted to be part of this progress.
What is it about this technology that is so exciting for you?
It is easy to use, transparent, cost effective and does what it says it does. Quadzu simplifies the client’s external workforce. It is ideal for the skill shortage as it enables the client to engage with as many suppliers as required using Quadzu as a one stop shop for their needs. It saves the client both time and money, and we haven’t seen anything like it in the Australian market.
How has the QLD market received this new offering?
Everyone I speak to can see how passionate I am about this, and the interest here in Qld has been extremely high. In the short time I have been employed with Diplomatik I have spent a week in Perth (my old mining stomping ground) and a week in Mackay at QME 2018.
The feedback from all over the country as I introduced Diplomatik and explained to the industry what Quadzu can do for them has been overwhelming to say the least! People are screaming out for this type of service.
“What a great idea!” is usually what I hear.
What has been your experience prior to this role?
Over the past 30 years I have worked in a variety of industries including, but not limited to, mining, construction (civil and rail), defence, utilities, manufacturing and travel/tourism. My roles have also been diverse – accounts, call centres, sales and amp, marketing, customer service, OHS and more recently in the areas of B2B relationships and human resources where I have focused on developing and implementing processes
to improve recruitment, administration and mobilisation of personnel safely to sites.
What is it you feel you bring to Diplomatik and its clients?
Because of my background, I can see how easily Quadzu can be utilised and how instrumental it will be going forward for businesses large and small, streamlining recruitment for human resources, procurement and suppliers alike.
What goal or aspiration do you have for the rest of the year?
I am really looking forward to helping as many clients as possible so that by the end of the year I can look back and smile knowing I have made a
difference, and assisted them with making their work life simpler with Diplomatik’s technology.
