About Us

“We are successful at what we do and are proud to be leaders in our field”

Established in 2007 Foundation Recruitment is one of Australia’s foremost professional, dynamic, and exciting recruitment companies. We have offices in Brisbane, Maroochydore and Melbourne and have future expansions on the horizon.

Lead by Founder and Director, Paul Gay and with over 40 years combined recruitment experience, our team at Foundation Recruitment are “industry specialist” consultants who provide expert advice to both candidates and clients.

As we work in partnership with our clients, we are experts at recognising their needs and requirements and understanding the challenges facing companies within our industry sectors. With an extensive industry network and strong relationships built and maintained over decades, we have an extensive range of contacts which is fundamental to our success. We are specialists in sourcing exceptional people for organisations and experts in finding the right career options for candidates.

Foundation Recruitment are members of the NPA Worldwide, the worldwide recruiting network, connecting independent global recruiting firms together, giving our clients and candidates even greater reach and connectivity. All NPA Worldwide members go through strict quality and reference checking procedures and are governed by a code of ethics and confidentiality measures.

We find the best people, work hard to achieve the best result and give you a commitment to achieve the best outcome.

Unlike many we don’t rely on “job board advertising” to secure candidates for our client’s, as many can do this themselves, instead we utilise our extensive data base and extensive contact network to ‘flush out” passive job seekers and present our client’s opportunities to them!

“We don’t muck around….”

The market is moving quickly and it is important to move fast and deliver results in a timely manner.  Our “sense of urgency” and our determination to ensure that we address and solve the recruitment needs for both our candidates and clients alike is the pivotal to our success.

When dealing with people no process is flawless, sometimes through no-ones fault and outside any level of control, some placements just don’t work! We identify this and boast quite proudly, that some of our strongest client relationships have been developed by delivering our highly valued “replacement guarantee” services, as a priority! We pride ourselves on this and believe our client’s come back to us time and time again as a result of their confidence in us to uphold this guarantee process.

Our experienced Recruitment Consultants have years of specialist industry experience recruiting both nationally and internationally. We are recruitment leaders in the construction, development, building, project management, energy resource sector as well as the public practice accounting sector.

We also work across a broad range of other industries, working with some of the country’s top companies both large and small providing the full spectrum of recruitment services for all of our clients.

We recruit for temporary, contract, permanent and high volume placements.
