About Us

Whitcombe is a brand that’s fresh in name only. Leveraging almost 15 years of recruitment experience across tech and Renewable Energy sectors, we are perfectly positioned and connected in the Australian market to provide leading recruitment services and market insight.

We believe the Australian energy market is just beginning its transition away from coal and other fossil fuels into a low carbon nation. We’re ready to tackle the staffing issues plaguing this emerging industry where good, proven talent is hard to find.

Services

IN-HOUSE CONSULTING

Don’t have an established recruitment team or Australian presence in your business? Want to cut your staffing costs? Whitcombe offers an in-house consulting service whereby we’ll work from your office (or ours) on a day rate. No success fee. Multiple job management. Managing several recruitment partners can be time consuming. Whitcombe removes the hassle.

EXCLUSIVE SEARCH

If you need a candidate and want to secure our undivided attention, we offer an Exclusive Search for all seniority levels. Unlike our Executive Search service, this won’t require an up-front payment. We’ll give you our same premium service but without the same rigid time bounds. We’ll ask for a period of exclusivity to properly map the market to ensure that we get you the best available candidate at any given time.

CONTRACT SEARCH

Our contract search is the quickest and most efficient of the lot. We’ve developed a large network of contract workers throughout the Solar and Wind industries, many of whom are available at immediate notice. Whitcombe is able to provide payroll services to these contractors as required to take the stress out of hiring. Again we’ll give you a list of the best available candidates for you to choose from.
