Our background works to your advantage

Many of our technical and engineering recruitment specialists have engineering and technical backgrounds, and so are fully conversant with this dynamic industry and its most exacting standards. This first-hand industry knowledge further enhances our ability to fully understand our client’s requirements and source the ideal candidates to achieve your organisation’s strategy.

We have been at the forefront of Fly In, Fly Out (FIFO) operations, and currently manage staff under these contracts in Queensland, Western Australia, South Australia and offshore. Our considerable experience of this unique mode of operation means that we have a depth of understanding of how it works in practice. This knowledge allows us to advise both clients and contractors alike as to all the challenges that FIFO presents.

We also have a strong focus on the mining, oil and gas sectors, where we can supply specialists for the entirety of a project or for unique project phases. Starting with exploration, our technical and engineering recruitment specialists supply engineers and technicians for site construction, through to mining and mineral processing, and engineers for mine support infrastructure and operations.

BestFit™ people, every time

We use a collection of cutting-edge appraisal tools, evaluations and methodologies to ensure that the candidates we choose are BestFit™ candidates, from both a technical and behavioural standpoint. This approach applies to both temporary roles and permanent positions within your team.

Our goal is to source a candidate who is the BestFit™ for the role and the organisation at large, thereby improving not only the performance levels, but also the average level of performance observed throughout the organisation. This successfully increases engagement and productivity while minimising costs associated with high turnovers and below par performance.
