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.)

Changes to superannuation

You’ve probably heard the news:

the superannuation guarantee (SG) rate will gradually increase from 9% to 12% between 1 July 2013 and 1 July 2019 (ATO)

thousands of people who are employed on contracts and whose salary is defined as a “total package” will see their take-home pay drop by 0.25 per cent.

This is because under these contracts there is no obligation for the employer to increase the total amount it pays employees. (news.com.au)

I haven’t found many recruiting companies talk about how they’re tackling the issue so I felt this was worth posting publicly.

We have decided to pay the .25% increase in superannuation on behalf of our contractors for the life of their contracts. Despite super changes, contractors will have the same take home pay and we won’t be increasing the client rate in order to achieve that.

We are a young company with a small payroll relative to other recruiting firms. We’re embracing that it’s reasonably straightforward for us to bear this cost in order to give the people we work with a smoother experience.

Future contractors will be told about the schedule for superannuation increases and together we will factor that in when setting contract rates.
