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.)

CampJS X, 2019 - Broken Bay

I knew CampJS was going to be entertaining when it took 2 days to convince my colleague Shaila that unlike her experience of school camp in the UK, we would NOT be staying in a hotel. We did our best to describe what to expect but we mustn’t have done a good job because the first 12 hours included the following exclamations:

  • “What?! We won’t have phone reception or WIFI?! You’re kidding me - I can’t go!”
  • “Who’s bringing up our luggage?”
  • “Why are sheets piled up over there? What do you mean we have to make our own beds!?”
  • “What?! We have bunk beds!”
  • “The showers have timers on them!”

But once Shaila got over the initial culture shock, she adapted quickly and got on with enjoying herself.

Apart from getting to know my own colleagues better, I met lots of people from all over Australia. And the majority were first time CampJSers too. Over the weekend I experienced the essential components of CampJS:

  • Made new friends
  • Heard interesting talks
  • Chatted by the fire
  • Stayed up late playing board games and/or singing karaoke
  • Played Werewolf (yes, it gets its own bullet point)

It was great to see so many women at CampJS. We were a diverse group in many ways. And not everyone was an experienced JavaScript developer either - I met students in Code Bootcamps, an Animator and an Operations Manager too. The code of conduct was front and centre and the group took it seriously making sure everyone felt safe and included. Thanks to @_kartikgupta_ @garrows and team - you did a great job and I’m sure I’m not the only one looking forward to CampJS XI in 2020.
