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.)

How to support your favourite meetups

The world has changed a lot since COVID-19, so has the way we run meetups. A lot them have moved to an online format and it will probably be a while before we do any in-person events. It's really important that we continue to support, grow and maintain these wonderful communities we've built over the years. Here are some simple ways to support your favourite meetups:

Tune in to an event

Quite a few meetups have moved to an online format e.g. Design System meetup, SydCSS, RORO Syd, Girl Geek Sydney and Front End Tech. You can now even attend events that are based interstate and overseas. All from the comfort of your own home!

Become a speaker / recommend a speaker

As a meetup organiser of SydCSS, one of the hardest things is to find speakers. If you've been thinking about presenting for a while but not sure what topic to do, I highly recommend reaching out to a meetup organiser to have a chat. They understand their audience well and can give you some ideas on what sort of topics to present.

You can also help by suggesting people who'd be good speakers. Did a colleague present at a lunch and learn recently? Maybe they'd be interested in presenting at a meetup too!

Interact with other attendees

Some of these events have live chats so you can interact with others. Just a simple "hello" to your fellow attendees, or an applause emoji 👏 when the speaker starts and finishes, can already make a big difference to the overall energy of the event.

Give feedback to the organisers

Most of us haven't run online events before, so we are figuring it out as we go. Things won't go perfectly but we want to improve. So be sure to give the organisers feedback. It's the only way we can ensure we continue to run events that people will enjoy.
