Experience:
With 25 years industry experience as a Detective, in Corporate Management and now nearly 10 years recruitment in Risk, Security and Compliance I have the ability to consistently make the right connections for my clients and candidates. I bring to the table as a recruiter experience that is not something picked up by just reading some books or listening to lectures. It was born primarily out of life experiences such as those I had during my years as a police detective. My wealth of experience has given me a deep understanding of people – their thinking, their feelings, their motivations, all the things that ‘make them tick’. Only by understanding a candidate, and understanding an employer’s needs and concerns, can the right connection be made.

My recruitment approach for screening and shortlisting candidates is the same no matter what the position. Candidates are required to undertake initial phone interviews and a position specific questionnaire.

Having only recently established a business relationship with People Select, I have been extremely impressed by their willingness to understand and appreciate my specific business needs. They listen and actively pursue a close working relationship, focusing on mutual communication to achieve common goals. All employees recruited by People Select are still with the company and are seen as long term employees.

Paul National Sales Manager, 

Macarthur District Temporary Family Care would like to acknowledge the commitment by Simon Rorke, of PeopleSelect in recruiting staff that have blended into the Agency, providing new skills and personalities that enhance the work we do. Macarthur District Temporary Family Care is a not-for-profit organisation, that provides respite care for families in crisis and families who have a child with a disability. It is important to us to provide a quality service to the people accessing the service. Staff play a major part in this being delivered. Simon and PeopleSelect were able to identify the type of staff that needed to be recruited. The Agency continues to develop and improve. The new staff members recruited by Simon are an asset to the Agency. It’s like providing staff who were tailor made.

Anna Maria General Manager, 

We have had difficulty over a number of years in recruiting additional professional staff that would fit in with the culture of our firm. We tried to recruit staff ourselves using the cheap option of newspaper advertisements and the like with limited success. Simon Rorke from PeopleSelect convinced us that there was a better way and he gave us immediate results. PeopleSelect provide a professional and a value for money service. We highly recommend PeopleSelect.

Chris Solicitor, 

PeopleSelect has taken great care in fully understanding my requirements before proposing placements for me. They have consistently provided me with realistic assessments of the labour market and what remuneration I should expect. Highly, highly recommended.
