Information Technology is the “joker in the pack” when it comes to executive recruitment, apparently giving lie to the suggestion that the nation is in the grip of a nascent skills shortage.
Major technology recruiter Finite IT and its specialist executive recruitment division, FinXEC IT Executive Recruitment, has been appointed an Executive Search and Recruitment Services Panel member to the Australian Public Service Commission (APSC), effective from 1st June for an initial 2 year period.
Featured | Written by: Beverley Head | Published in: RecruitmentCandle, the IT recruitment arm of listed recruitment business Clarius Group, has sounded the alarm over the prospect of a new wave of extreme IT skills shortages. It’s a view that’s sharply out of kilter with the peak IT recruitment body ITCRA’s, which says IT skills supply and demand are largely balanced.
Competition among e-recruitment suppliers is warming up, with a major State-wide e-recruitment tender in the wings, and the Northern Territory Government this week confirming it had selected NGA.NET to provide whole of government e-recruitment services.
Recruitment company Candle has again called on the Government to revise the rules governing 457 visas, in order to allow recruitment companies to bring in skilled people from overseas, and bench them until a suitable position can be found. Only then will major IT projects such as the NBN, e-health initiatives and banking revamps be able to access skills when and where they need them.

They work with client companies, building relationships in order to gain a better understanding of their recruitment needs and requirements.
