The days of long old-school recruitment processes are over! We have worked on projects ranging from 1 position to hundreds of positions to fill per year. “No candidates are interested” or “I needed that vacancy filled yesterday” sound familiar – we understand the need for speed!
In this fast changing business environment companies need a recruitment partner that invests time to get to know their business and is able to change together.
By setting high standards for our sourcing and headhunting consultants we are here to help you save your valuable time and focus on what brings you more business. We always strive for “less candidates – but all suitable!”
Many of our clients have difficult positions to fill. Often they cannot be advertised or advertising brings no results. Sometimes you need specific market knowledge to pinpoint the right people for your organisation. In any scenario – confidentiality is our primary responsibility.
We put ourselves in candidate’s shoes to help you understand the market and identify what motives the ideal candidate to join your company.
We are real
Our approach is refreshingly honest, passionate and no-nonsense.
Of course we work hard, but at the same time we’re not ones to take ourselves too seriously.
Most importantly - we know
1) where to find candidates for you and
2) what motivates them to join your company.
Recruitment plain & simple
We find talent! Why? Because our consultants have long been experts in the industries we work with and also because we do this 24/7! From common to niche positions – meaning there are only a couple of candidates to fill hundreds of vacancies – we have been successfully delivering complex recruitment projects in the region. And it’s now time for a new challenge!
Bolt on expertise for short term needs
Employee leasing can cure bottle necks, provide a chop out in the event of an employee who is sick, on holiday or suddenly departs.

Retained headhunting works best when the target list of companies ca n be easily defined. If a client is looking for an individual with a specific skill set, or from a competitive organisation, then headhunting is normally the best methodology.
Our process is simple, yet robust, and our clients are able to track every step of our progress through our secure password protected client area.
After meeting with you and gaining a thorough understanding of your needs, we will research your competitors and other relevant companies to decide which are most likely to contain your ideal candidate.
The next stage is to identify the high achievers within these target businesses and approach them directly presenting your opportunity to them.
The result of every approach is documented and available for you to see via our secure client area, meaning, you will always be fully informed and feel in control of the process as we always deliver a transparent, confidential and discrete service to our clients.
All interested candidates are then put through a series of phone calls and face-to-face interviews with your BIG FISH Headhunters Managing Consultant and undergo psychometric profiling before the shortlist is forwarded to you.
The shortlist contains detailed CVs for each candidate, in depth interview notes and psychometric reports as well as salary requirements and reasons for interest in your vacant role, putting you in the ideal position to secure the candidate you want.
Our whole-of-market approach to headhunting means we source from an infinite pool of passive candidates; individuals who are happy in their current roles but open to hearing about exciting new opportunities like yours, without the restrictions that apply to specialists and traditional recruitment agencies.
