Monica Clare Recruitment appointed to the Hunter Water Recruitment Services Panel

Monica Clare Recruitment have announced that they have been appointed to the Hunter Water Recruitment Services Panel.

They join a panel of four recruitment agencies and are the only new addition to the group in 2021.

The tender win comes at an important time for Monica Clare Recruitment, coinciding with their five-year anniversary.

Co-Founder and Business Director, Clare Ferguson said the tender success aligned perfectly with the achievements of their business.

“Winning the tender on the same week as our anniversary offered great symbolism for the success of our business,” Clare said.

“After coming out of the most difficult year we have ever seen in the recruitment industry, it’s been uplifting to kick-start 2021 joining the Hunter Water Recruitment Services Panel.

“It very much feels as though we’ve entered a new league: we’ve gone from a small boutique agency and now we are pitched against the national players,” she continued.

The appointment highlighted a new focus in the business: diversity and inclusion.

“It’s raised a lot of questions for us on how we can really make a difference in this space, instead of just talking about it,” she said.

“We now have an internal diversity and inclusion council that meets monthly, we are a tier one member of Diversity Council Australia and we’ve solidified a pledge with attainable goals.”

Monica Clare Recruitment had been invited to tender before 2020, then being just a team of six. They did not feel they had the capability to service the agreement.

Now a team 18-strong, Monica Clare Recruitment has the knowledge, networks and expertise.

“In the last five years Monica Clare Recruitment has grown to become the largest white- collar recruitment firm in the region,” Clare said.

“The tender crosses many disciplines but focuses on engineering and technology. We know we have the knowledge and expertise to meet the needs of this tier one client, while offering a catered and boutique experience.

“We have intricate knowledge of Hunter Water in the Monica Clare Recruitment team with Simon Rutten, Jenny Newell and Georgia Harvey.”

Recruitment Director, Simon Rutten said he is excited about the opportunities this new tender presents and to work alongside Hunter Water.

“Personally, I look forward to working with the Hunter Water team again. We are excited about the opportunities to connect candidates with one of Newcastle’s employers of choice, he said.

“Our business approach has been top-heavy, investing in senior people, which can be risky for cash-flow. But that leadership was integral to being successful in this bid,” Clare added.

“We are excited to become a partner to Hunter Water and steer our brand into a new sector, which is the water sector.”
