shaping the world of work

Randstad’s consultants are responsible for both client engagement and candidate selection. This means that, unlike most recruiters, they are best placed to understand and deliver recruitment requirements from both perspectives.

Randstad Australia was established in 1988 as a multi-specialist recruitment consultancy with a national network of offices. Using a unique blend of human touch and innovative technology, Randstad matches over 100,000 Australians every year with the right organisations to achieve their goals and career ambitions.

Randstad consultants work with clients to build up a thorough understanding of the specific nature and requirements of the position, including evaluating competencies, experience, salary, benefits and career opportunities. Randstad then evaluates which candidate has both the right technical and interpersonal skills for the post – also known as the right fit – through careful questioning; taking the time to get to know each person’s history, requirements, goals, and vision.

In line with its best-practice approach to recruitment, Randstad goes further to identify ‘perfect match’ candidates by using the latest, psychology-based methods, like Pymetrics, a tool that employs gamification of psychological tests to provide a 360-degree profile of capabilities, experience and personality traits. 

Randstad’s HR Consulting division offers the ‘Emotional Capital Inventory’ (ECiTM) as a tool for the development and measurement of effective leadership, and delivers the best scientifically-validated range of psychometric assessments.

With innovative, data-driven insights, Randstad enables businesses to gain a better understanding of their evolving talent demands and develop more proactive workforce plans. They are constantly utilising innovative tools to enable businesses to reach out to an ever-wider spectrum of potential candidates, as well as target their recruitment spend and subsequent selection much more effectively.
