Supporting Our Community
There is a strong sense of community amongst the Recruitment Edge team. From fund-raising activities for local charities and hospitals, through to networking events and educational opportunities for local businesses, Recruitment Edge takes pride in the fact that they contribute to the community.
Led by Managing Director, Tania Kapell, the consultants and staff show their support for the community (businesses, individuals and charitable organisations) in a variety of ways.
Supporting Local Businesses
Tania is a long-standing member, and former Chairperson of the Botany Bay Business Enterprise Centre (BB BEC). Through her involvement in the local BB BEC, Tania has helped the group to support local businesses in the formation of strategic alliances, community liaison and cross referral programs.
Recruitment Edge host regular networking functions for local HR and Recruitment Executives. At these events, guest speakers are invited to cover topics of interest to attendees and all guests are encouraged to network and develop professional alliances and support groups.

"Recruitment Edge's success is based on a deep understanding of the business, building trusting relationships with its client as well as the candidates."
"Consistently provides a service which is second to none and they are a true business partner in every sense. Engaging Recruitment Edge will be the best decision you make.....one day you will look around and realise that all your great people have been placed by Recruitment Edge."
"It's a testament to the quality of Recruitment Edge services that I would not consider using any other recruitment agency; either now or in the future. Their work ethic and selection process is exemplary and this is most certainly reflected in the high quality of candidates while still managing to ensure 'value for money' in a very competitive market."
"Recruitment Edge stands out from the other recruitment firms because they are passionate about what they do and they genuinely care about their client and candidate relationships, they want long-term relationships. This is a truly unique characteristic to find in their industry."
"The best aspect of the Recruitment Edge service is the professional nature of the interaction with clients. Staff are always more than happy to help, efficient and don't muck you about with useless candidates. No improvement required! 100/100 compared to other agencies."
