TRC's Contractor Christmas Party

Main Image

As we approach the end of the year, the traditional recruitment company contractor party is a TRC staple. 

Our amazing community of contractors are out there all year making us look good in front of our clients and the party is a small way of us saying 'thanks'.  This year we saw record numbers come out and brave the bushfire smoke in the city to enjoy some festive fun at Sydney's amazing Veranda bar. 

A fantastic evening, at a great venue with some amazing people

Theres nothing we love more than Christmas in July!  This year we took the team to the Tap House for a Christmas feast. Terrible Christmas jumpers were on display, dad jokes flowed freely and there were even a few family rows thrown in for good measure.  After a slap up Christmas feast the team settled in to experience some of the many beers on offer

July Lunch Club Review - Archie Brothers

Main Image

We've been to pretty much every restaurant in Sydney, we've been to more amazing venues than we can count, we've reviewed them all.  And here it is, our first ever, unanimous 5/5 review.  Want to know which venue finally hit the mark with everyone?  Quay Restaurant?  No.  Bennelong?  No.  That posh place at the top of the Shangri La?  No.  

In the end it was zombie shooting, VR and sickeningly large alcoholic ice cream sundaes that won us over. Does that make us shallow and childish?  Maybe.  Will we be back there again?  Definitely.

The Recruitment Company's top performers for July had a lunch club experience with a difference - an afternoon at Archie Brothers.  Amazingly this is, in all our years of rating the top restaurants and venues in Sydney, the first 5/5 overall rating we have ever received!  Read about the experience here.

The Recruitment Company named as Employer of Choice in 2018 Australian Business Awards

Main Image

Sometimes, as a recruitment agency, its not easy to be an employer of choice. Its a high pressure industry with a notoriously high staff churn rate.  But, (and we're blowing our own trumpet a bit here), we've worked hard at it.  And this effort has been rewarded by those nice people over at Australian Business Awards who have named us as Employers of Choice in the 2018 ABA's.

We often get asked by other companies about how we create a good culture.  For us the secret sauce is to continually find the balance between intensity and fun. 

Its nice to work in a company where everyone feels safe a…
