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.)

Developer Apprenticeships

When you hire juniors, your team naturally becomes more diverse. That's because graduating classes of bootcamps and universities are starting to look like the real world. It wasn't always that way, my classmates from uni who are now seniors are mostly men. We're trending in the right direction but we need more jobs for our juniors.

Every company we speak with wants help building a diverse team, yet almost none of them are prepared to train juniors.

"Once we hire a few more seniors, we'll be ready".

The longer you wait, the harder it will be to bring people from underrepresented groups into a large homogenous team. You don't need to have an arsenal of seniors to support a junior, especially when you have the right kind of support.

Our friends at Blackmill can solve this problem.

Back in 2017 our client Qantas Hotels (👋Stu!) asked for help putting a developer academy together. We placed junior developers, along with Blackmill's co-founder Elle Meredith to run the program for 4 people.

It was a huge success - they're all still working there.

This is all Elle. She's a wonderful teacher and a class act. They're offering the same training services to other companies and have a framework that makes sense. We can do the hiring to bring the cohort in, if you need help too. 👉https://blackmill.co/do/associate-developer-onboarding
