Dear Sir/Madam,

We are an Australian owned global recruitment business proudly headquartered in Sydney. We mostly provide executive search services to large global financial institutions.

In the past few years we have diversified by also providing recruitment and contracting services to Australia’s booming information technology sector and commerce sector.

We have a global mindset when it comes to sourcing our team members and always try to employ local people first in any particular country. Having said that, it is well known that the UK has been a world leader in recruitment practices and we feel we have built our success in this technology area with the help of their specialised expertise.

We do struggle to hire locals in this sector. It is very difficult for us to expand our team with only Australians as much as we’d like to, sometimes we are forced to go outside the country. Therefore, we feel it’s important for the success of the company to be able to hire good people from overseas who have the experience and the skill set that match our criteria.

Since 2012 we have hired nine employees. Five have been Australian and four have required sponsorship. We spoke to and/or interviewed over 105 recruitment and sales consultants, the majority of that number were Australian. We interviewed over 82 local candidates and hired 1 consultant from that group and we hired 4 from internal referrals. We had a higher success rate for international consultants, interviewing 23 and hiring 4.

Tardis Australia has a total of 20 employees. Of that number 3 have come to us via sponsorship.

We will continue to try to employ Australians first and only use sponsored employees as a last resort because it is less expensive and administratively difficult. We also wish to be a good corporate citizen.


Yours sincerely,



Neil MacLean
Managing Director
Tardis Group
