RPR Trades is a successful specialist recruitment company that focuses on servicing the construction, resources, engineering, maintenance and operations and manufacturing industries. Founded in 2012 as Davidson Trades, the company was bought out by management in 2015 bringing with it all staff, clients and candidates to form Recruit Performance Risk (RPR). The company assists skilled blue-collar employees seeking temporary, contract and permanent positions predominantly in Queensland but also regionally throughout Australia.
On the decision to go with Corporate House for their offices, Hayley French – Corporate Services Manager said,
“Being a trades-based business, an office located in the city centre wasn’t going to work for our clients or candidates. We approached Corporate House from the get-go for our space and we haven’t been disappointed. One of our initial concerns was the affordability of the services we needed, like boardrooms, meeting rooms and receptionists. But by sharing the cost in a shared workspace this gave us the flexibility we needed to get the business up and running without sacrificing internal efficiency and client service.”
Another attractive feature to the growing RPR was the option to acquire additional space when needed.
“Ann assured us that there would be space available and that we’d be prioritised, (we were).”
5 years down the track and expanding from 2 to 9 staff, RPR was rapidly outgrowing its Garden City serviced offices. They co-purchased a part of a flow in a newly built office park and were able to flexibly transition with Corporate House’s assistance.
“Working out of Corporate House allowed us to grow as we needed, without the fear of over committing. We were able to expand as we needed and only pay for the space we were using. We went from 1 office to 4 combined offices by the time we left.”
When asked whether and why she would recommend Corporate House to other businesses Hayley said,
“Absolutely. CH is a wonderful solution that allows you the flexibility with all the mod cons you want in a professional office! Not to mention how Ann and Paige have continually gone above and beyond, working tirelessly to help our staff and clients. We’ve been so well looked after and have felt valued by Corporate House.”
