Any business leader worth their salt know that people are their single most important asset. 

No employees = No company! But recruitment is frustrating and time consuming.

This is where we come in.

Our experienced team is committed to finding you the right person, the first time around, across all blue- and white-collar roles, so you can get back to running your business.


We are not your typical recruitment agency – we are much better than that. We can help with any or all steps along the way, depending on your requirements – it is entirely up to you. For you as our client, this unique approach is both cost-effective and efficient.

We value and encourage your input throughout the process – you know your business best! This will also ensure we are all on the same page to soure and attract the best candidates who will add value to your business so you can get back to what you do best!

Presenting Candidates

We are the leaders in HR and recruitment for heavy industry – our team boasts more than 40 years of experience providing recruitment solutions to heavy industry businesses of all sizes, Australia wide.

We have unrivalled experience recruiting blue- and white-collar roles at entry level through to senior management level, both in the office and onsite, so we understand your industry and your people, as well as your unique challenges and opportunities.

We are approachable, practical, and realistic, so you know you’ll receive the hands-on support you need to find the right people for your team. Rest assured, you’re in good hands.


A typical recruitment agency will often charge you a fee of around 15-20% of what the successful candidate will earn annually – but we are not a recruitment agency and don’t operate in that old school way. 

Instead, we charge an hourly rate for services and a small placement fee for a successful candidate. We are open and transparent about expected hours and on-charge advertising at cost (no markup).

This means you get a team of heavy industry experts with over 40 years’ experience, working to find you the best people for your team the first time around at an affordable price. Sounds perfect, doesn’t it?!
