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.)

Recruiting field notes

Steve Gilles

Welcoming Nicolle!

Say hi to Nicolle everybody! She’s a recruiting industry veteran with more than 20 years experience.

Fraser’s work experience week

We have Fraser Allen doing work experience with us this week! Some of you might know him - he’s Matt and Aprill Allen’s son. Flew here from Melbourne and everything.

Congrats, JP!

JP is now a partner at Lookahead Search. Joining in 2015, JP has seen us grow and helped us grow up. He’s a steady hand that’s calm under pressure and is always good for advice.

Become an approved sponsor

Make sure your company is an approved sponsor. Do the paperwork before you need to, so you’re ready when that dream candidate comes along who needs sponsorship.

Welcoming Shaila and Simeon!

It’s been a big start to 2019 for Lookahead as we’ve added two people to our awesome little team. Both are technology veterans who are lovely humans as well.

Team Hang 2018

Last week we had our annual Team Hang™. I haven’t found many blogs about team offsites so wanted to share a small part of what we’ve learned after running 5 of these.

Work180 - Endorsed Employer for Women

We're a Work180 as an endorsed employer for women! The pre-screening process itself was quite interesting and asked a bunch of questions I’d not thought of before.

Lookahead turned 6, had a party.

Last Friday we celebrated our 6th birthday with a party on the Glenmore Rooftop. Huge thanks to everybody who came and to everybody who has been supporting us along the way.

Welcome, Debbie!

We’re excited to welcome Debbie to the Sydney team today. Debbie has been working on the web since table layouts were a thing and most recently spent 4 years as a product manager with a startup.

Goodbye G

Today is G’s last day, after 5 years with us at Lookahead Search. When she joined it was just Martin Kelly and I in a small room in The Rocks.

“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.”
