About Brenden

Prior to coming on board with Cox Purtell, Brenden spent years honing his sales skills with Newscorp, Gameloft and Yahoo7, in the media landscape. After looking for a change of industry he wound up at Michael Page, stopping over for 18 months, working in finance and accounting, before making his way across the road to the friendly gang at Cox Purtell.

Brenden is our specialist in qualified finance. Recruiting a range of positions for those who have CA or CPA qualifications, including Management and Financial Accountants, Analysts, Finance Business Partners, Financial Controllers, and Finance Managers to name a few. Meeting with quality candidates, and finding solutions for clients with a need, he is passionate about putting the right person, in the right role.

Away from the big smoke, Brenden is a sports-obsessed, music loving, Netflix keen, father and partner who can recite the scores of most sporting matches since he was born. We dare you to try him!


I had interviews with many other recruitment agencies, but Cox Purtell was the first place to say “How can we help you get work?” and within a week or so, actively kept in contact with me and placed me in a temp role. It is refreshing and much appreciated to be with an agency that really does want the best for me. – Lynda Sanders
