About Leanne

Leanne has over 15 years’ experience of working in the recruitment industry. Starting in an administrative role for a recruitment agency, she quickly realised that she was more interested in the end-to-end recruitment process and enjoyed working with people more than paper! Leanne has recruited across the FMCG, Health & Education, and IT industries; her passion laying firmly with IT and Cyber Security.

Leanne takes a holistic approach to recruitment and believes that people make businesses (not technical skills) and jobs should be a passion and not a chore. Getting to know her clients and candidates innermost needs and wants is how Leanne has found success. Having an open ear and an open mind is what sets her apart from other recruiters in her industry.

Outside of work Leanne enjoys the Sydney-sider lifestyle, she loves being by the water and exploring all that Australia has to offer.

Leanne is currently away on maternity leave.



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
