We've talked about the Best Places to Work award extensively over the last week, but the ABA award is also a major addition to our trophy cabinet.

According to our team we are, and winning 12th place in the BRW 2013 Best Places to Work Top 50 list confirmed it!

But our story doesn’t start there. In 2012 we were ranked the 10th Best Place to Work in Australia by BRW, an amazing achievement for us as it was our first year entering the competition! However, the 12 months since have been difficult for the recr…

This year's Annual Christmas Contractor Drinks had been a successful one with over 40 contractors joining us on the evening of Thursday, November 22, 2012.

Melbourne Cup 2012

TRC Group celebrated Melbourne Cup in true style yesterday afternoon with delicious finger-food platters catered by Cherry Kitchen and a never ending supply of bubbly. The whole office waited in suspense for the 3pm race, TAB bets on hand while mingling and nibbling at TRC's Sydney office. The ladies dressed up in their floral dresses and fancy fascinators while the gentlemen didn't disappoint in their tailored suits.

The event had been a great success even though only one person in the office managed to win from the results of the races! Thanks to the hard work of the Operations team for makin…
