Monica Clare Recruitment was designed to give both clients and candidates a service they want; a service that makes recruitment easy. We offer a tailored solution, unique to a person or the philosophies that make up a business.
We take the time required to find exactly the right candidate for each role, and the right role for each candidate. This means actually understanding you and your industry - including all the subtle things you find hard to explain, but which really set you apart.
We understand what you need is a solution. One that not only reduces your replacement rate and the associated costs, but also increases productivity, profitability and staff morale. One that works with your cash flow. One that’s easy.
When you partner with Monica Clare Recruitment, you work with award-winning consultants with roots in Newcastle, Central Coast and the Hunter. We’re the most connected and specialised agency in the region.
You’re not just looking for a new job. Or even just the next step in your career. What you’re really looking for is a new employer. Some people may say that’s splitting hairs. Perhaps they’ve never worked for a bad employer (or for a really good one). It’s an absolutely critical distinction. A role can look great on paper but needs to involve a healthy work culture, accountable management, ethical business practices and realistic expectations to really be your dream job!
So that’s the first thing we look at when an employer asks us to find staff for them. We only do it if we’d personally work for them.
After that, things are a little more straight-forward. All our employers are great, so it’s just a question of finding the one that has exactly what you want. The right values, the right pay, the right conditions, and of course, the right job.
This means we really have to get to know you. And them. The obligatory annual call just isn’t enough. We need to understand all the subtleties that make you an outstanding candidate, and the preferences and values that will allow us to identify the ideal role and employer.
Naturally it also means we won’t put you forward for ill-fitting jobs, just for the commission or just to make up numbers. We only ever put you forward if we think it’s exactly what you’re looking for and you’re exactly what they’re looking for (95% of our placements stay longer than their probation period, with 81% still there two years later).
Our team don’t make you jump through hoops either. You won’t have to reformat your resume or attend long-shot interviews, and we absolutely never advertise non-existent roles.
“Clare had a way of making me feel calm, confident and ready for my first interview in years. Without her guidance and encouragement, I would not have succeeded in obtaining a job in my desired industry with a great company. Can’t thank her enough!”
“Finding people is not that hard, finding the right person is somewhat more difficult and Clare’s approach is the best I have come across.”
