JobAdder played host to Sydney’s very first #SydRecMeetup event and boy was it a breath of fresh air!
Having gained popularity throughout New Zealand and in Melbourne over the last 2 years, the team behind Recruitment Meetup kicked things off in Sydney over beers at JobAdder HQ.
Talent Acquisition leader and no-nonsense host Mark Mansour set the tone when he cut right to the chase, “let’s be honest, recruiters keep information to themselves – there’s always that one person who stashes away a dream candidate’s CV in their top drawer.”
With that in mind, the #SydRecMeetup group provides recruiters (both agency and in-house) with an opportunity to network and trade secrets with other like-minded people. In doing so it aims to bridge the gap between agency and internal recruiters and to alleviate that feeling a lot of recruiters have of working in separate silos.
Turns out this struck a chord – some of their meetups have had up to 100 recruiters in attendance.
In the spirit of Mark’s candid, no-BS mantra, here’s a snapshot of the best tips and advice to come out of the talk:
