Talent Management Qudos

Award-winning service

The Qudos team

Qudos is a licenced recruitment agency. This means that you are assured of our highest professional standards and ethics in the way we conduct our business.

Our team of consultants have an average of 15 years of recruitment experience and all have also worked on the ‘other-side-of-the-desk’ before becoming career recruiters. They combine real world experience with their recruitment expertise for a deeper understanding of every type of role for both permanent staff and temporary staff, business setting, and the abilities, aspirations and potential of every candidate.

Their experience is tangible. You can feel it in their conversations and their actions. They are the experts and will always give you advice in your best interest. In fact 50% of their work is around advice, whether they’re working for you or not.

Qudos consultants are the go-to people for many of Australia’s biggest and smallest employers needing the right recruitment advice or solution. We are very proud of our award for customer service. It’s a true reflection of how we serve, respect and treat our clients and candidates.

Our culture was based on collaboration and this is still our mantra today. The team shares their contacts, experience, insights, networks, ideas and their workload.

Their collaborative approach means that every consultant is available to assist anyone who contacts us. And their years of service at Qudos means clients and candidates feel known and remembered.

We have been working with many clients and candidates for over 10 years. A testimony to the consistency and reliability of our team.

How it all started

Trust in our experience

It all started back in 1997 when our visionary founder Lyn Cairns, Melbourne born and bred, after working as a recruiter in the UK, USA, and Australia for 15 years felt it was high time there was a better alternative to the process-driven, profit-focused offerings of the recruitment industry in Melbourne.

Her aim was to create a recruitment company with a deeper level of consultant expertise, and professionalism, and a genuinely personalised service.
In the years since, we have never lost sight of this original vision. Qudos is now renowned as the go-to agency for their highly valued advice and quality of service.

Lyn built Qudos based on the experience of senior recruitment experts. Her vision for an organisation built on expertise, trust and long-term relationships with clients and candidates continues to be the life blood of Qudos’ extraordinary level of referrals and repeat business today. Our boutique specialist recruitment agency in Melbourne continues to thrive on strong core values – and an endless passion for what we do each and every day.

Integrity of leadership

The Qudos way

We work with progressive employers – and place only the highest quality candidates for every role.

That’s because our consultants are specially trained to select the right person with the right fit, not just the most impressive CV.

Through our cutting-edge interview methodology, we understand deeply just how a candidate will behave. Their personality type. What motivates them. What’s meaningful to them. Their goals.

We want our candidates to go to work with a sense of purpose, pride and a feeling of belonging, because we know that’s what will lead to successful long-term placements.

… So many agencies are super keen at the start and then you never hear from them.
Qudos is not like that. I’ve been incredibly grateful for Chloe’s regular support and advice during my job hunting process.”   Highly recommend.

They invest time and effort into building strong relationships and partnerships – with candidates and clients. Regardless of whether you have a role for them to fill, they will still make the effort to stay in touch and show genuine interest in understanding the organisations they work with. You never feel like just another number either which is rare in today’s recruitment industry.
