In 1999 Cavill + Co was engaged by SEEK to guide them through our HeartSmart® process. They were looking for a cause partnership that would make systemic change, enhance the Seek brand, utilise staff expertise and motivate them.
In 2000, we partnered SEEK with Volunteering Australia who had been wanting to create an on-line volunteering portal to provide a fast and efficient way for Gen Y to contribute their skills to society –but didn’t have the expertise or the cash to do it.
Volunteering Australia had been in discussion with Boston Consulting Group, who came on board as a 3rd and critical partner, to manage the daunting task of launching a new website matching consumers to charities.
In late 2000, in time for the International year of Volunteer in 2001, SEEK Volunteer was launched.
