I have worked with Doug and the team at Collingwood over several years, both as a hiring manager and as a candidate. On both sides of the recruitment process what stands out is the effort that the team put in to understand the business and its culture, find high quality candidates suited to the role, understand their aspirations and work to achieve a strong match. Their approach extends through all aspects of the recruitment process, from role definition through on-boarding and during the initial employment period, and has achieved great results.

This candidate was only in his mid-20’s, but came with the wealth of relevant experience, recruited with this research heavy, headhunting approach

Collingwood managed all negotiations, progressing the offer and notice arrangements to a successful conclusion
