Cox Purtell aims to be the most courteous recruiter you’ve ever worked with.

Hello and welcome to Cox Purtell. If you’re looking for a role that fits who you are and where you want to go in your career, or you’re an employer that wants to hire people who add real value to your organisation, talk to us.

We’ve been matching the right people with temporary and permanent roles since 1994 and we’re one of Australia’s most respected recruitment firms.

Our approach is to treat both our clients and our candidates the way we would like to be treated. We don’t just collect CVs and PDs and match them on paper, we take the time to get to know everyone that we work with on a personal as well as professional level. That way we know we can look after everyone’s interests equally throughout the recruitment process.

In our world, recruitment is about listening to what you want—whether you’re looking for a job or looking to fill a position—and then only making the match when we believe we’ve found the right chemistry. And we’re good at it, as our retention figures show.

Frankly, we don’t want to waste your time or our time by placing people with roles that just aren’t right for each other. We would much rather build long-term relationships with everyone we work with and be a genuine resource for both our candidates and our clients.

That’s why the people we place tend to continue for years with the employers we find for them—and why so many people trust us with all their recruitment needs, or with their entire careers.
