Recruitment has been at the core of Optimum Consulting since we first opened our doors in 2003.  Since this time, we have seen trends come and go, experienced the rise of artificial intelligence technology, and the constantly shifting skills that are required to be successful. Through all of this we have remained successful because every recruitment assignment we’ve handled has been underpinned by our founding statement:

We believe in the inherent goodness of people and that good people make great organisations.

We don’t provide a resume service; instead, we look beyond the immediate transaction and work closely to understand the ongoing talent requirements of our clients along with the career aspirations of our candidates, to ensure a strong match. We offer a complete service.

Most importantly, we are committed to ensuring our customers are in the best position to keep up to date with recruitment processes that will be effective as we move towards 2025 and beyond.

Our recruitment services cover Contract, Fixed Term and Permanent placements, as well as Executive Search. We are also able to offer remote employees to complement your existing teams.

Although our clients ask us to help them in many different areas, we have specialist expertise in the following industries:

  • Executive Search
  • Accounting & Finance
  • IT & Digital
  • Engineering & Technical Services
  •  Office Support & Administration
  • Professional Services including HR, Sales & Marketing

We understand return-on-investment.

The average cost of hiring the wrong employee in Australia can range anywhere between 1 – 2½  times the employee’s salary.

According to a recent report from PWC, the average annual turnover for employees in their first 12-months of employment in Australia is 23%.

This means that if a company has 100 employees and an average salary of $100,000 with an annual turnover of 23%, it could cost the business in excess of $2.3 million dollars per year.

We are here to ensure you take on the right team members to achieve your long-term goals.  Our capability is supported by our extremely high levels of repeat business.   How can we help you today?
