LaVolta - Recruitment for the Digital Age

Well it's 2012 and we'd like to take this opportunity to wish you all the best for the coming year. Can you believe February is only a week away?






Here at LaVolta HQ all systems are ‘go’ with demand for good people growing more and more every day – from creative to sales positions and everything in between, the phones haven’t stopped ringing – we think it’s going to be a busy year!



We’re delighted to be partnering with a number of new clients, both here and overseas, this year; technology start-ups, blue-chip corporates, creative agencies and mobile specialists; and it’s great meeting a few new faces on the digital scene and reconnecting with some old ones.



We’ve also got a few surprizes up our sleeves for the coming year – so keep your eyes peeled for that – and of course feel free to get in touch with Bob, Steve, Harris or Sally any time, we’d love to hear from you.

A fresh perspective on Australian Retail and consumer behaviour - eCommerce






Our pals at brainmates are a clever lot – they’ve recently completed a fantastic whitepaper on retail with over 1000 survey respondents. Not only is it a challenging time for Australian retailers who should find the whitepaper most interesting, it’s a must read for anyone that wishes to better understand the mindset of today’s consumer.

In partnership with Nine Rewards, brainmates conducted a nation-wide survey of over 1000 Australian consumers to uncover the key issues and attitudes that are driving their purchase decisions.  Here’s the link for more information and to download the whitepaper.

brainmates are also running a Product Requirements MasterClass – check it out here

Our Little Porn Star

As you’re all no doubt aware, Movember is in full swing and we’re lending our support (giving a gratuitous plug) to this year’s Campaign; in-fact, our little porn-star Steve has managed to sprout some whiskers (giggle) and raised a tidy sum already…and we’re only in the second week of the campaign.

The Movember team have really embraced social media and mobile this year; upgrading their mobile App to makes it easier for Mo Bros to engage with the community with updates on donations, news and activities in real-time, and keeping us engaged on YouTube, Facebook and Twitter.
