If someone you know is looking to hire or be hired, please think of us.

We will take good care of anyone you refer. We can answer questions they have about the market or talk through ways to optimise their hiring process. We can even introduce them to other specialist recruiters if their skills are not in areas we know extremely well. So if you're unsure, refer them anyway.

Successful referrals are rewarded with your choice of a gift voucher, donation to charity or community event sponsorship to the value of $1,000. (Eligible three months after successful placement. Referral must be to a client or candidate we are not currently working with.)

So, you want to be a contractor...

Have you thought about taking a contract role? Here are tips and considerations

Code Heart Design 2018

Friday 30th November was the first ever Code Heart Design conference - a mini-conf bringing together designers, design system lovers and front-end developers. Lookahead Search were given the pleasure of being one of the sponsors of the event and I happily volunteered to go!

Make your cover letter count

You’d be amazed at how few people submit their resumes without a cover letter. Or if a cover letter is provided, it is badly written with no consideration for the recipient, the role being applied for or the company advertising that role. Cover letters give you the chance to explain why you are right for the job. So why waste this opportunity?

“Although I’m not coding on a daily basis, I’ve really enjoyed meeting developers and chatting with them. Having that technical background definitely helps me understand what developers and companies are after. I’ve also spent a lot of time giving people general advice on job searching and resume writing. They really appreciate that.”
