how to... find local talent


Senior recruitment consultant, Amanda Thomas, from DCL Recruitment in Brookvale, talks about the art of finding the best people for your business.

We all know how time consuming it can be trying to hire the right person for the right job.

“Small businesses need to focus their time and resources on their core business and expertise rather than searching for candidates and going through applications” says DCL consultant, Amanda Thomas.

The team at DCL are like a family  and clearly love what they do.

“Most of our staff have been with us for over 10 years and operate as a united front,” explains Amanda. “We are an outgoing, friendly team offering a flexible and personalised service. It’s this approach that has led to many candidates going on to become clients and clients who then become candidates.”

After 26 years of experience DCL’s local knowledge is unbeatable.

“DCL constantly has access to candidates and we tend to have access to the right candidates quicker. We enjoy many referrals, have constant target search programs in place and a large pool of current candidates. We love to exceed expectations by finding a needle in a haystack or by speed of service.”

So, what’s the best thing you can do as a client?

“Be clear on what you need, engage with your recruiter and let them partner with your business. Our greatest successes involve a partnered approach where we gain a thorough understanding of the role, the clients organisation and its culture” she says.

With a mix of businesses, from small to large multi-nationals and local government, DCL know how to wow their clients.

“I have one client who dislikes interviewing and is baffled by why we love it so much. Our service minimises our clients time spent interviewing and allows us to use our core strengths, creating the best outcome for all.”
