“The Onset is not your "every-day" agency. We are a business of highly capable, deeply specialized recruiters. We're a team united in our pursuit of delivering outcomes for our customers. We're eclectic and diverse. We're open-minded and forward-thinking - Most importantly - clients love our action-oriented mindset and the way we make things happen!”

From a myriad of tools to one business, one partner


Prior to Vincere, The Onset’s recruitment systems were diversified. The team operated across a range of different tools and had to expend effort to keep data consistent across these. "Before Vincere, we had to cobble together a range of tools, including our ATS, spreadsheets, and a variety of communication apps."

The management team subsequently identified a need for greater insights into business performance and the opportunities that would come with broader and more powerful data insights and more contemporary functionality. In selecting their new platform, The Onset evaluated international alternatives including Bullhorn and a range of local Applicant Tracking systems, but Vincere stood out from the competition:

"We conducted an extensive global market review across core solution components; Management, Recruitment, Sales, Back / Middle Office, Applicant Tracking, and Integrated communications. We then shortlisted products according to their value-adding components, and development roadmap, and this is really where Vincere pushed ahead of the pack. We needed a recruitment system to match our ambitions and unique approach. A system that would evolve and grow with us, and a platform that unlocks our team to do their best recruitment. It was also important for us to find a product that was made by recruiters - the innate understanding of how to drive outcomes in our world that only comes from hard-earned experience - something the Vincere team really demonstrate well."


A clearer path for growth


As an all-in-one, holistic recruitment platform with analytic capabilities, Vincere has provided the team at Onset the visibility to see whether they are on the right track to hit goals, and what change can be actioned for more effective outcomes.

“The powerful analytics offered by Vincere has put the right insights in the right hands, at the right time. This allows our team to work smarter and perform their work in a truly informed fashion. By unleashing the Vincere analytics across our entire business, it has reduced the payload for “management” by allowing individuals to self-review and apply the AI tools directly to their world."

The Onset also shared that Vincere’s distinctive chevron management system has been central in focussing the Onset team on what is important.

"The chevron pipeline system is a unique workflow tool that has subtly emboldened our team to always think ahead - driving to the next outcome clearly, concisely and with confidence. With a platform like Vincere, we have a foundation that has systemized our workflows and business practice. This is a crucial step to enable national and subsequent international expansion of our business model.

Onset has established itself as the agency of choice for organisations who have technology at the epicentre of their growth. With Vincere as our system foundation, combined with our deep level of vertical specialization (and importantly our understanding of how these specializations work together), we are in a strong position to continue helping our customers build their teams and businesses. Vincere is best intended for organisations that are growing, and that have capable recruiters who want to do more.”

The Onset is ahead of the curve in Australia and on track for national expansion. They currently have a team of 24 working in the business and are planning on expanding headcount to support growing national demand. Their long-term goal is to grow the brand out of the ANZ region and take Onset to the international stage.
