We go to great lengths to position ourselves as the ‘recruiter of choice’ for our clients and our candidates.
About Us

“We were recommended to Slade Group by a business colleague and we were not disappointed. Barry Hodson was very professional in our dealings and a pleasure to get along with. He provided high quality candidates and was very proactive in his communication with us in every step of the process. I would not hesitate to recommend Barry and Slade Group to our other business colleagues for their recruitment needs.”

Courtney Stoppa

Financial Controller, The Met Group

“From my very first interaction with Slade Group, I immediately felt their authenticity. Throughout the preparation process leading into the interview stage I was extremely impressed with the amount of detail that was involved. It was the most qualified and focused procedure, which I found prepared me better than anything that I have experienced before. This level of detail and investment from Slade allowed me to become more in tune with the areas that required attention for the interviews and gave me the ability to excel. This professionalism coupled with their genuine nature made the entire experience an enjoyable one and my most memorable to date.”

“Laurie Serafini provided invaluable strategic input into the recruitment process and ensured we were able to gain two great new employees who have made a significant contribution to our organisation. Slade Executive will be our first call for any future recruitment needs.”
Gerard Kennedy

Chief Financial Officer, Golf Australia

“Clearly Slade Group is up there with the best of them when it comes to recruitment methodology, but at the end of the day it is the depth of knowledge about what needs to be achieved rather than what needs to be done that means you get the right person into the role… know the people, know the culture, throw in good processes and you get good outcomes that are worth paying for.”
Malcolm Jackman

Chief Executive, Safecom

“Slade Group far exceeded our expectations. Our candidates for interview were excellent and your extensive knowledge of education, comprehensive support and expertise allowed us to secure three outstanding senior staff. We are delighted with the result that will significantly support our endeavours and growth over the next 10 years.”
Andrew Ponsford

Principal, Southern Cross Grammar

“Speaking as a candidate, my experience with Slade Group, represented by Barry Hodson, was both engaging and enjoyable. I found Barry to be open, transparent and above all extremely professional in all of our interactions. Barry articulated the culture of the employer, together with the requirements of the role in a way which has proven to be extremely accurate. I felt informed throughout the process, and my expectations regarding timing, next steps and requirements were very clearly explained at each step. A pleasure to deal with.”

“Downer Rail engaged Bill Haggerty on a number of senior executive search assignments for roles that reported directly to me. Of note, these assignments included successfully securing a number of high calibre candidates including two General Manager – Operations and one Chief Engineer – Rolling Stock Design, Systems and Safety Assurance. I have always found Bill’s sage advice in regards to the strengths, weaknesses and suitability of potential candidates insightful and invaluable. There are few professional services/recruitment firms able to replicate the way that he immerses himself in your business in order to fully understand the client’s needs and the search assignment.”

“From a candidate point of view, Anita Ziemer is in my opinion the finest recruitment and selection executive working in Australia today. Anita is the consummate professional – organised, transparent and extremely well informed. She effortlessly juggles a considered and strategic search for her clients, with a genuine concern for the candidates’ experience, whatever the outcome.”
