If Michelle is your recruiter- lucky you! You are in very capable and knowledgeable hands. Michelle is a master at her craft with in-depth knowledge about the role, and her candidate. Starting from her vetting process to mapping the right role- her process is thorough and detail-oriented. Her support for prep is comprehensive while leaving room for authenticity- which eventually benefits both the candidate and the hiring manager. Simply put- Michelle is an A1 recruiter with incredible relationship-building abilities. I cant wait to see whats next in her brilliant career.

..Above and beyond... I wholeheartedly recommend Michelle as an exceptional tech recruiter. Amidst a saturated market, she distinguishes herself with unparalleled efficiency and effectiveness, providing a personalized and supportive hiring experience. Michelle's meticulous attention to detail, orientation towards excellence, and profound knowledge of the hiring process were instrumental in securing my recent role.

Beyond her technical prowess, Michelle empathetically understands the emotional challenges of job hunting. Throughout the 6-week hiring journey, she consistently went above and beyond to ensure my support, promptly responding to numerous texts and calls.

Connecting with Michelle was pivotal to my recent success, and I am confident that her expertise and commitment will prove invaluable to others in their professional endeavours.

Thanks again, Michelle!

We couldn't be happier In a very competitive candidate market, being a relative unknown brand in the market we were having difficulty attracting the right candidates for our sales roles. I was referred to Michelle by one of our employees who had worked with Michelle as a candidate and told me that she wasn’t like any other recruiter he had worked with. I contacted Michelle and from the initial conversation I knew that what I had been told was true. From that initial conversation, Michelle was interested in finding out about our business – what made us different from our competitors, what were our aspirations for the future, our culture and values. In other words, how she could represent our brand to prospective candidates as I would – a representative of the company and not ‘selling’ the job as is traditional with other recruitment professionals. Michelle gave me the confidence I needed that she would represent our Company in the best possible light without over or under selling the challenges that prospective candidates would face. This resulted in candidates being referred to us that were not only well prepared for the role but their expectations were matched to what we were offering. We ended up hiring several candidates across our Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane offices through Michelle and we couldn’t have been happier with the calibre and quality of all the candidates referred to us.

If you are looking for a recruiter who will partner with you to deliver the results that you are looking for then I would not hesitate to recommend Michelle and Hunter Jacobs as the standout boutique recruitment agency.

Agile When Listening I worked with Michelle on a particularly tough assignment to bring together a specialist business development team within a 2 month timescale from start to finish. She had to really attack the task in hand with energy and commitment but, in particular, she had to be agile when listening to feedback on candidates to adjust and respond accordingly. We recruited two strong team members from Michelle's headhunting, and I am confident they will make a terrific contribution to our company’s success.
