The Recruitment Company

The Recruitment Company has been recognised as an Employer of Choice in The Australian Business Awards 2015.
The Australian Business Award for Employer of Choice recognises organisations which have developed leading workplaces that maximise the full potential of their workforce through practices that demonstrate effective employee recruitment, engagement and retention.

Since 2000, The Recruitment Company has been providing contract recruitment services for the following sectors IT & Digital, Professional/ Technical and engineering, IT and communications in the public sector. The company has grown to achieve revenues of more than $25 million.

The organisation intends to untether itself from the office, from the traditional 9-5 model and from the traditional recruitment agency model by 2016. A strategic education and training model is implemented by the company, to leave people alone when they don’t need input, assist struggling employees when they need help, and to challenge high performing employees when they plateau.

Staff have a clear learning path, a great work/life balance, and a work environment that fosters their skills. Each staff member receives core benefits, including 3 days additional holiday, an additional potential 12 days holiday, access to our company games room and bar, company iPhone and phone account, company iPad, monthly lunch club and pre-tax work attire. Points can also be earned that can be used towards further benefits including gym memberships, laptops, new suits, health insurance, transport to work, and HECS assistance.
