KNOW YOUR RECRUITER
Take your career
to new heights
For over 20 years our quality services
in Executive Search & Recruitment,
Contracting and Career Management
have created rich and enduring
relationships with our clients and
If you are reading this feature, then
it's most likely that you're a successful
person with both a keen knowledge
of your chosen professional field and a
healthy interest in your personal career
development and progression.
That already distinguishes you from
many of your peers in terms of being
aware of the need to manage and
drive your own career and to be open
to the wealth of opportunities which
can be accessed through forming
good relationships with experienced
Consultants in the Recruitment Sector.
The view of many job seekers is that the
recruiter is simply "the go-between"
only to be contacted as a necessary and
purely transactional step in applying for
an advertised position. This is a very
narrow view however, for a relationship
with a quality Recruitment Consultancy
like Dakin Mayers & Associates can offer
much more to prospective candidates
than a one-off contact. We have the
potential to become a trusted partner
in your career through your inclusion
on our in-house database. This valuable
resource enables us to offer our
clients access to talented individuals
across a wide range of employment
opportunities. For senior appointments,
Executive Search is often a client's
preferred selection strategy and typically,
seasoned professionals will have
ensured that their networking includes
regular contact with experienced Senior
Recruitment & Search Consultants. Our
Directors, Peter Dakin and Philip Mayers
certainly match this profile.
We welcome the opportunity to get to
know you -- whether that is over the
telephone, meeting one of our Directors
or Senior Consultants at a networking
event, or at an initial interview for
one of our assignments. Like most
recruitment firms, we retain and refer to
your resume via our in-house database,
but we enjoy getting to know you
a little better as a person - to really
understand your career goals, skills and
capabilities and operating style, so that
we'll know if you're "the right one" for
a particular placement.
Dakin Mayers & Associates is committed
to confidentiality and quality service.
Our firm has been part of Melbourne's
'recruitment landscape' for over 20
years. Those years have seen economic
ups and downs, candidate shortages
and tight job markets and the rise and
fall of many recruitment consultancies.
Our firm however, has weathered all
these conditions to achieve on-going
success and longevity in the demanding
and sensitive world of human resources
consulting. We believe this is due to
our foundation of strong ethical and
professional standards, our consistency
in achieving high quality results for
both clients and candidates, and our
capacity to nurture relationships based
on mutual respect.
Our corporate motto 'Making your
people our priority' summarises how we
work with our clients. It is also how we
work with our candidates throughout
the recruitment process. We take the
time to get to know you before we refer
you to the client interview stage. And
we'll offer you feedback, explanations
and guidance along the entire process.
We use both Advertised Recruitment
and Executive Search methodologies to
find and place quality candidates at
middle management, senior executive
and C-Suite levels. While we make
placements across the full range of
industry sectors, we have established
a particularly strong reputation in
the fields of healthcare and hospital
appointments; aged care; education;
philanthropic; cultural and not-for-
profit organisations; manufacturing;
professional services and engineering.
The people we recommend for
appointment are attracted to an
organisation's potential, and nearly
all are retained to become valued
employees who go on to develop
their careers within that organisation.
We believe this outcome is our best
