Business in Docklands March 2011

Servcorp s here to help

Australian multi-national serviced and virtual-office provider Servcorp moved into Docklands in December and is already in high demand.

Starting out in 1978 with just a quarter of a floor in Sydney’s MLC building, Servcorp has grown to become one of the world’s leading providers of serviced and virtual offices.

Located in about 100 locations worldwide, Servcorp provides fully-equipped offices to a range of clients, from small businesses to large corporations, as well as virtual offices.

Servcorp executive director Taine Moufarrige said Servcorp was a leader in its field, having invented the business of virtual offices back in 1989.

“We started virtual offices over 20 years ago to allow businesses to have a presence without the investment of an office. I only wish we had put copyright on the phrase,” Mr Moufarrige said.

Mr Moufarrige said virtual offices provided all the services of an office but without the actual office.

“Virtual offices mean that businesses can have a presence in an area without having to commit to an actual office. We provide them with an address, space to conduct meetings and they can have a receptionist without the actual office,” he said.

Built on strong family values, Servcorp was started by Mr Moufarrige’s father and Mr Moufarrige now runs the business with his brother.

“Though we are now publicly listed on the stock exchange, our culture still incorporates our family values and I think that is what differentiates ourselves in providing the quality of service that we do.”

Employing about 900 people worldwide, Servcorp has experienced rapid growth in the last two years and is looking to further expand the business.

“In the past two years we have grown the business by 40 per cent, opening up new offices, including in the US, and we will soon be opening up more overseas offices.”

Mr Moufarrige said the company decided to open up a business in Docklands as it sees the city expanding in Docklands’ direction.

“It’s a fantastic area that will continue to develop and it is an easy place to get things done. For our clients it provides a place away from the hustle and bustle of the city, but it still has all of the services and infrastructure to get things done.”

Servcorp’s Docklands offices are located at 710 Collins St and contain approximately 20 serviced offices, as well as a mixture of different-sized meeting rooms and a shared workspace.

Welcome Eleisha

Victoria Harbour Podiatry on Bourke St Docklands welcomed new podiatrist Eleisha Lilley to its team in February.

Having worked at a clinic in Point Cook, as well as at a specialist shoe store run and owed by sports podiatrists, Eleisha brings a wealth of knowledge to her new job in Victoria Harbour.

With an immense passion for her work, Eleisha says it is helping a person that motivates her to be the best podiatrist she can be.

“I love working in the field of podiatry which, in itself, is what motivates me to come to work each day and continue to learn as much as I can about my patients and how I can improve their situation,” Eleisha said.

Eleisha, who studied podiatry at Latrobe University and Exercise Science at the Australian Catholic University, said outside of work she enjoyed keeping active.

“When I wasn’t studying I enjoyed training for triathlons and I still continue to do this with the Busselton Half Ironman as my next big challenge in May this year,” she said.

Eleisha said she chose to work for Victoria Harbour Podiatry as she saw it as an opportunity to practise a wide range of her podiatry skills and build a strong client base within the local community.

“Bec, a current podiatrist at Victoria Harbour, will also need a break soon with her new baby on the way,” Eleisha said.

Eleisha, who prior to working in Docklands visited the area to go shopping or to the footy, thinks Docklands is a bustling part of Melbourne.

“It’s got lots of potential and I especially love all the greats cafés nearby,” she said.
