    Job Agencies - Sydney

    Hi all, I am Relocating to Sydney from the UK in Mid-December and was looking for any recruitment companies I could start submitting Resumes to, to help me get some interviews as soon as possible after I land. I am a Senior Planner/Scheduler. I have already started applying directly for Jobs but was advised employers would not be interested until I was physically in the country. Any help or pointers in the right direction would be much appreciated!! Thanks Dean
  2. The last time I had to contend with the job market, I walked into temp agency offices, told my story, and got sent out on assignments. From there I made permanent, got promoted and sailed on for many years. Having moved to Melbourne recently, I find that none of the agencies (temp or permanent) will see me for an initial assessment meeting. Every one said to submit a CV for a specific position and then wait for them to contact me. My background does not fit into the square box to be ticked format, so I anticipate and have had no contacts via that route. In fact, my plan is to start over at the bottom in logistics again and work my way up. Does anyone have experience with getting access to temp recruitment agents? Are there any agencies that still talk to walkins? Is going directly to private employers my best approach now? In my experience, temp/casual workers always come from agencies. Thanks in advance Phillip
  3. Hi, My husband, Son, dog and I are hoping to relocate to australia soon. (Im Aussie, my husband british). My husband has been in operations director level roles for years in London, and we are trying to link him up to the right connections to find work in Aus. Are there any good agencies or head hunters anyone can recommend by any chance? I know its a long shot, but worth a try! He's mainly worked in media, or digital media. Thanks so much for any pointers!

    Help With Employment

    Hi, I have recently arrived in Clarkson, Perth, Been searching for a job but had no luck. Does anyone know any jobs available around this area, or some places I could look at to help me? Thanks
  5. This was posted on one of our sister forums. I thought it very interesting. The job these candidates are applying for may not even exist. WE'VE all missed out on scoring a dream job, but have you considered that wise, helpful recruitment agent might be lying to your face? Or pumping you for information about what's happening at your work? News.com.au spoke to a former recruiter who worked at three different agencies about what life is really like in the cut throat industry. On the recruitment game The former agent - who didn't want to be identified - said recruiters make their money filling positions in exchange for a commission from the company and the business is all about the bottom line. "You are just dollar signs. Often you know they're not the best person for the job and they'll get into the role and quit in two weeks. But all you care about is invoicing the client before they do. "It's an awful lot of resume flicking and luck. Sometimes you find other recruiters represent the same candidate. If you find out the other company has put them forward, you try to convince them they're your client, otherwise they get the $20,000. "It's hard because sometimes I've had four or five jobs on the go and you have 500 messages. Often there is no way to get through them all so you're just deleting them." "It's awful, I used to feel sorry for them. Some people are so lovely and you're lying to their face." On how much they make "It's anywhere from 15 to 30 per cent of the salary. Let's say a business development role is $60,000 base, if there is a car included it's usually 20-25 per cent of that whole package, so we're talking $10-13,000 for one placement and of course the consultant gets a piece of that depending on how well you are performing. "It's a lot of money for what is sometimes just resume flicking … you're thinking 'oh my god I just billed $15,000 from this candidate I've never met who happened to email me'. On creating fake jobs to drum up business "Often when it's quiet and you don't have much going, you'll put a fake job online to get candidates in," the former recruiter said. "Let's say I was working on a marketing job, I would put up a generic ad saying a company is looking for business development manager with five years' experience blah blah blah. "You'd get resumes, call up candidates and say 'you've got good experience,' when what you're trying to do is work out where they're going for interviews so you can ring up that company and say 'oh I heard you're looking for staff' then you pitch other candidates in." The fake position is never filled and the people that applied are none the wiser. "Sales people are always full of BS, they say 'oh the roles been filled or the client has pulled the role. Smart candidates can generally see a fake job and they're very wary. Particularly in IT where they do it all the time." On how they're really just pumping you for information The recruiter said once they have someone in an interview, they can find out "whatever you want" about their workplace. "You try and find out who their managers are so you can call them a week later and say 'oh I heard you're the IT manager at XXX here's my card'. A lot of the time you're just trying to get information out of the candidates about the place. They might dish the dirt on 'five people are leaving' and that's great because that's five roles you can fill. Often it's a fact finding mission. "It's harder over the phone but usually in the interview, because they want the job, there's so much trust in their recruiter and you don't know what they're thinking. Half the time they're thinking 'I hate you'." ‘I think I’m worth $50 an hour.’ ‘How about I pay you $25?’ Picture: Thinkstock. On fleecing people out of their pay "Let's say you have a temp candidate that wants $50 an hour. The client will often say we're going to pay you $80 so they pay us and we pay the candidate. So we say fair enough and you get your candidate in. "The candidate knows their worth $50 an hour but you say to them 'oh this client is on a really tight budget' you don't tell them who the client is at this point. You say 'look, they can only afford $25 or $30' whereas really you could pay them $40 and still make a profit margin." "Another thing we did is really screw down the temps, particularly if they're new. You have a lot of people that come from overseas, so they wouldn't know much about the market so you would try and hook them in on a six-month contract where they were being grossly underpaid. "A lot of the time people are desperate ... you can just say whatever you want and the candidate will often take it and you think 'wow I'm going to make commission this month.'" On advice for job hunters The recruiter said he eventually got out of the game and is now retraining for a different career. "I always say don't go to recruiters, go direct to the company. They've got an internal recruitment team and they don't care about making budget, they care about filling the role. I always tell people to stuff recruiters unless they can prove to you they've got this ongoing relationship with company. "If you're going to a recruiter for a temp job, don't believe their BS about 'they can only afford this much' really put your foot down and see what you can get."

    Reccomended Migration Agencies?

    Hi! Myself, my husband and our 11 month old are planning to start the application process for getting a visa for Oz soon. We're thinking that it might be worth going through a migration agency to make sure that we're going about everything the right way. Obviously we want to use an agency that's worth the money and knows what they're doing. Does anyone reccommend any UK based agencies that are really good? Any advice or experiences would be much appreciated!! Thanks x

    IT Agencies

    Hi All! I am currently looking into starting the whole Visa process and making the big move down under. I was thinking it would be nice to be able to chat to someone who may specialise in the whole recruitment process for English people wanting to work in Oz, just to get a sense of the job market, and whether my skills are valid out there. Does anyone know of any good recruitment agencies that specialise in this sort of thing?
  10. I would really appreciate to hear from any of the nurses who were interviewed by the NSW crew in September either in Manchester or London this year and are awaiting their 457 or PR visa. The interviews were arranged by professiobnal connec tions agency and Health Staff recruitment.:daydreaming::confused: Please get in touch so we can keep in touch and update each other as well as sharing ideas.

    Recruitment Agencies in UK

  12. Hi, Anyone know any good 'job agencies' that deal with Auto electrical work?
  13. Hi, We have been subject to an Agency that is not genuine, we did pay a bit of money, however from the advice from members, we have decided to start from scratch and apply through another agency that is recommended and GENUINE. Any reccommendations out there? Cheers
  14. Hi everyone, wondering if you can help!? my partner and i are desperate to move to Australia since visiting for 6 weeks last year - been thinking about it since we got home and have decided to take the plunge! i am a registered paediatric nurse and my partner is a plasterer with 4 years experience. We are hoping to go for the 175 skilled independent visa. I understand this has one of the longest waits (12-18months) but we are happy to wait for that. At the moment we are deciding whether to go with a migration agency to help us with our visas, move etc... do people tend to go with agencies or try and apply themselves? ideally, it would be good to not have to pay an extra £2000 out as it is already expensive but are you more likely to have a successful application if you do?? is anyone else in the process of applying for a 175 visa or hoping to move to Brisbane and can give me some insight of the visa process? Thank you in advance!! xx :biggrin:

  25. Hi folks, I'll try to keep this nice and short: 36 year old communications / PR worker wanting to move to North Queensland (Cairns) with his 28 year old girlfriend who works in education sector. We know employer sponsorship is the only real way of getting the visas we need, so have started looking for jobs... which is proving difficult! Can anyone suggest employment agencies online in Oz that we may be able to sign up with? Can't seem to find agencies for the communications industry easily... Any other tips gratefully received too. Thanks for any help
