We are thrilled to announce that Talent International was named Best Large IT Recruiter at the 2013 Australian Seek Annual Recruitment Awards (SARAs) ceremony on Thursday 14 November.


“This award win is the culmination of a remarkably successful year for Talent International, and is a resounding endorsement of the incredible dedication and commitment of all our people to be the best in our industry,” said Talent International Executive General Manager for Australia and New Zealand, Chris Riley.

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who voted for us and supported us throughout this incredible year.

The SARAs win follows hard on the heels of the company’s Best National Agency win at the recent 2013 Recruitment Excellence Awards.

2013 has been an outstanding year for Talent International.

“A definite high point of 2013 was our inaugural Unleashed event in May, a major event for the company’s clients and other stakeholders where Sir Richard Branson was a keynote speaker and our guest of honour,” Managing Director Richard Earl said.

At the event, Sir Richard presented Classroom of Hope founder Duncan Ward with the inaugural Unleashed Award for Impact for his work in providing education for children in Cambodia.

Talent International has also undergone substantial expansion in 2013, moving from #236 to #203 on the highly-respected BRW Top 500 Private Companies list.

We’ve also made a number of key senior appointments in Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong, the UK and New Zealand, and appointed leading industry figures to the board, including Jonathan Butterfield and Jenny Levy.

In August, Richard Earl was named eastern regional winner in the 2013 Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Awards and is now a finalist in contention for the top national award which will be announced on November 21.

“Our overall objective is to continue to provide the most outstanding service of any IT recruitment company to our stakeholders, including clients, contractors and permanent staff. And winning this award is proof that we’re on the right path,” Richard Earl said.
