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

Lookahead life

Lookahead Christmas Party Day

Lookahead Festive team day.

Birthday Leave

We implemented birthday leave this year. TL;DR; your autoresponder goes on and phone goes off. Your one job is to Treat Yo Self, and tell us about it in Slack.

Lookahead & Sendle

When Sendle raised their Series B we completed an on-site project to help them double their team quickly. All while maintaining their very high technical bar and unwavering focus on values fit.

Volunteer Day - Revitalising Sir Joseph Banks Park

We believe in volunteering and giving back at Lookahead. JP spent a day helping revitalise Sir Joseph Banks Park, a significant nature reserve on the Botany foreshore in South Sydney NSW.

Diversity and Inclusion in the Workplace

Sarah McCarthy held a highly insightful and thought provoking workshop at Lookahead HQ on the topic of Diversity and Inclusion in the workplace.

Welcoming Nicolle!

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.

“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.”
