Why do I need a recruitment agency?

Because you already know how hard it is to find and retain talented people for your business.

Few things are more frustrating than going through the long process of recruitment, interviewing, referencing, and training – only to see your new starters leave within six months. What went wrong?

87% of people leave an organisation because of a personality clash.

Many companies experience high staff turnovers because they recruit candidates based entirely on their skills, without considering their personalities. But personality is the key to success.

That’s where we come in!

But it doesn't stop there. With our on-boarding and orientation process, we can also help your candidates settle in to their new roles, vastly increasing the likelihood that they’ll stick with you and achieve their potential.

We specialise in recruiting for the following areas:

  • Skilled & Technical

  • Engineering
