Software Development Recruiter Contracts

So we did a thing…….. we won the Economists Great Place To Work Award for our size category.

Can you believe it? A recruitment company with a culture so strong, healthy and flourishing that we beat every other company to be named the best in Australia & New Zealand (with under 29 employees).

Ever heard of such a thing from a “cut throat, selfish, uncaring, money hungry industry”?

Well, we aren’t like every other recruitment agency. We exists to make people enjoy the recruitment process again – that’s not just our candidate, contractors and clients, but it’s our people.

We make all our business decisions with the health of the business in mind, but also the health and happiness of our people!

We are looking for an experienced recruiter to work one of our previously biggest billing desks. The Recruitment Company has been one of Australia’s leading specialist IT recruitment companies for over 20 years

We are not generalists.  

Our clients demand the best market knowledge around and we can help you develop that.

This desk will see you recruiting for a range of existing PSA clients (fintechs, ASX listed corporates, multinationals and leading SME’s) as well as developing your own client base.

So ideally you are an existing Contracts Software Development recruiter with a core focus of either Java or .Net

OR you could be a focused recruiter who knows their stuff and is passionate about tech and wants to dive into that world.

We have an award winning training program, so we can help you out either way.

Here’s why you’re gonna want to work with us:

1 – Culture: We have an award winning unique culture (GPTW). You would be working for a company that genuinely loves their people. We have a high performing, inclusive, flexible culture and can prove it!

2 – Desk: The desk has been dormant for a few months, but the ramp up will be fast. All the ingredients are there – 20 year old desk, huge talent pool, great clients and a senior high billing counterpart. You just need to breath some life into it, put your stamp on it and the result will be MASSIVE. Easily the best desk in the biz with the right person driving it.

3 – Comms: Opportunity to earn comms from day 1. You get paid comms off the margins you negotiate. Up to 30% on every $$ you bring in (did we mention no threshold).

Expected OTE year 1: 120K – 140K / year 2: 180 – 200K / year 3 250+ (if on target).

Stretch target if you smash it out of the park (add 30K: year 1, add 50K to year 2, add 80K year 3)

Must haves from you:

You need to be in a love relationship with your phone – there is a healthy amount of BD (if you don’t LOVE developing new business then this probably isn’t for you)

Minimum of 2 years recruitment experience (either within IT or contract – ideally with both)

Extra points if you’ve recruited in a tech space, but we’ll consider all markets if you’ve got a passion to dive into all things tech.

What we offer:

The Recruitment Company has been crafting its remote working functions for the last 8 years and given the current nature of our working lives (currently living in lockdown) it’s truly a fantastic company to be working for. When we aren’t in lockdown we remote (if we want) for up to 4 days a week. The other day we spend together, connecting in our AWESOME office.

Flexibility - yes

Trust – absolutely. From day 1.

The sweet connection of culture and systems to support remote working – Heck yes.

So to recap!

An amazing culture – Certified Best Place to Work 2021, more Employer of Choice Awards than any other agency.

A focus on innovation – our Video Recruitment Toolkit has won Recruitment International Award for Innovation, a 2 SARAs for Innovation and 2 ABAs for Product Innovation.

Amazing Training – Recruitment Internationals Most Innovative Training and Development Program.

You will own one of our highest billing desks and will work with some of Australia’s most exciting companies.
