About Core Talent Image

About Core Talent

Core Talent Pty Ltd is an Australian-owned specialist recruitment consultancy, founded in Sydney in 2012 by Gary Montgomery and Matthew Gerrard.  Our foundations were built on recruiting across the Construction and Infrastructure industries with blue-collar and white-collar staff, 9 years on and we’ve gone from strength-to-strength and branched into complimentary and supporting industries.  We have an experienced team of dedicated market specialists which have operated in and network extensively across their markets for many years.

Our approach is simple, we have our clients’ needs and candidates’ experience in front of mind.  We understand the importance of trust, providing expert advice, transparent communication importantly, flexibility and our model replicates this too.  Each client has access to a dedicated recruitment specialist that is respected, well-networked and skilled in their own field.  Our team “stay in their lane” to naturally become specialists in their field, to provide our clients and candidate with the best service and understands the lingo and acronyms that sit in their areas.  Furthermore, we provide in depth advice and insights on the market to support your business and career defining decisions.

About core talent

We’re privileged enough to have grown organically over the years, with our growth stemming from our continual reputation in service and delivering for both our clients and candidates.  Allowing us to further strengthen our existing relationships, gain new ones and gain intimate and first-class market understanding.

To support our relationships further we chose to expand our branch network into our neighbouring states to bolster our capabilities across Australia’s eastern coast.

With an industry that is fiercely competitive and, in some areas, saturated, Core Talent was formed with the purpose of standing out in the market.  We aimed to build a brand that is recognised for excellence; by putting people first and delivering on our promise. 

We have two very distinct streams of the business, Our Trades & Labour arm (which Core Talent grew from) and our Corporate Services arm, each made up of individual divisions where each of our dedicate recruitment specialists sit

Why Core?

  • Core operate in all states and territories and now have 3 offices locations across Australia
  • We were founded by a vision and today we’re extremely proud to say we have built a “brand” and service to partner with our clients to support their hiring objectives
  • 25+ staff, and growing
  • Sophisticated and established front office and back office systems

Dynamic Specialists.  Recruitment, as a skilled profession and process, is highly transferable – what makes the profession and process different is the recruiter you deal with, as opposed the industry it sits in. We find that people buy from people, and if you hire the right people (which we believe we do) then our clients will receive the best service and calibre of candidate available.

Delivery Focused: Each client we choose to partner with, is unique itself, and we tailor every recruitment solution, TO YOU.  This is how we ensure our success and this is how we delivery for our clients each time.  We learn and growth from every bespoke recruitment campaign/search we complete so we’re suitably skilled to provide educated search and selection, our approach and solution to Logos will be unique to you.  Our objective is simple – to meet your exact needs and hiring requirements; and deliver the best service, calibre of candidates, choice in candidates and ultimately get the job done, exceeding expectations.

Growth: We’ve been fortunate enough to hire and invest in great people that take care of our clients, who understand the importance of delivery for each client and a business relationship. We are proud to say that we have many long-standing client relationships that have been loyal to us and we’ve enjoyed learning about whilst working and growing together. Over the last 4yrs or so we’ve seen an increase in organic client grown as our network expands, moves around and our reputation interchanges around word of mouth. 42% of our existing client base we have supplied consecutively over the past 5 years, and coincidentally for the past 5 years we’ve seen year-on-year growth

Integrity and Trust: We choose and partner wisely.  We’re realistic and upfront, we simply cannot supply every organisation in Australia as we have to attract our candidates from other organisations and we believe in ethical practice and loyalty to our existing clients. We either supply to; or search/head-hunt from.
