Supporting People Success

People are the key to your business success. We can help with that.

Finding an exceptional specialist who will contribute to your company culture is a tough task. You have to create a captivating job advertisement. Then you have to sort through the mountain of resumes and cover letters. Then comes the many stages of interviews before — fingers crossed — finding that perfect hire. 

And it doesn’t end there  your new hire needs to stick around! You’ll have to train and onboard to help them settle into their new role.

The reality is that hiring top talent in a competitive market is incredibly time-consuming and a huge drain on company resources. But what if you had access to a network of Australia’s top talent and someone who understood your company culture as well as you do?

Sirius People is a specialist recruitment agency based in Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane. We recruit specialised professionals for contract and permanent roles across a number of industries, including Technology, Business Support, Accounting & Finance, Blue Collar, and Sales & Marketing.

We have shortened the recruitment process by embedding our experienced consultants into their specialised communities. Each of our consultants owns a network of 700+ candidates, whom they speak with every month. We also connect with our candidates through our social media platforms, including Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter. This gives you access to both active and passive talent; and enables us to deliver high-quality, specialised candidates to you in a timely manner.

We partner with you to really get to know your culture and pain points. By painting a full picture of your business, our consultants can reach into our ever-growing specialist networks to quickly find exceptional talent who will help you achieve your company’s goals. This is one of the reasons why many of our current clients have partnered with us over the years.

We qualify our specialists so you don't have to.

Our Story

Like many great companies, Sirius People had its humble beginnings. Our story begins over 15 years ago in a spare bedroom in Coogee with a cat named Dave. Two weeks later, we moved into our first official (albeit windowless) office on Market Street. It wasn’t long before CEO Stephen Smith and our first and longest-standing employee, Jeremy Steele, took sledgehammers to the wall and knocked into the windowed office next door. And we’ve been growing ever since!

Steve had always liked the idea of running his own business, coming from a family of small business owners. After university, he joined a recruitment start-up, which shortly became absorbed by a larger recruitment agency. Steve felt squashed — the large corporations were inflexible and offered little opportunity for input. He wanted to work for a company that used the systems and processes found in larger agencies, combined with the core specialisation and customer care found in smaller businesses like his family's business. So, Steve founded Sirius People in March 2003.

Our business model may have changed from the early days of pointing out buildings to pitch in the Sydney skyline to the modern, online world of today, but our dedication to Supporting People Success across Australia’s Eastern Seaboard has been unwavering.

In fact, our oldest client was one we picked out from the skyline in 2006! Our partnership with them has allowed us to become deeply ingrained in their company and its culture to best help them succeed. They stuck by us even through the Global Financial Crisis of 2008, which saw the closures of many specialist recruitment agencies of our size.

With offices now in Sydney CBD, Parramatta, Melbourne CBD, and Brisbane CBD, we’ve placed over 35K candidates since opening our doors. To learn more about how we can help you with your specialist hiring needs, please reach out to one of our consultants.
