WELCOME TO COLLAR

We are Australia’s leading recruiter for the mining, transport and logistics, facilities management, property and construction, call centre and customer service, professional services, medical, aged care, engineering, infrastructure, trades and labour and building services sectors.

Established in 2021, we specialise in large and small volume recruitment throughout Australia. Our experienced recruitment team is one of the industry’s most successful, specialising in placing hundreds of candidates weekly. From trades to chefs, executives to cleaners, and project managers to geologists, we can help you find your ideal role or onboard temporary or permanent staff within your industry.

We don’t measure success the way traditional recruitment agencies do. Instead, we carry out all of our work with one common goal leading the way. To find the right candidate for every role and the right role for every candidate.

This is a commitment that our CEO, Ephram Stephenson, proactively fosters. An 18-year industry seasoned leader himself, he established the company on that very foundation and continues to lead from the front. He plays an active role in every client engagement, personally maintaining authentic connections with as many of our candidates as he humanly can.

RECRUIT A BETTER WAY

We’re excited to reshape the recruitment industry

OUR VALUES

collaborative

We pride ourselves on bringing together the best of the best. Our team is made up of the most experienced recruiters who are well respected within the industry, in no small part because of their collaborative nature. We understand that no one person is bigger than the team as a whole, which is why we hand-pick all of our employees with team cohesiveness in mind. By pooling our strengths and working together on every placement, we’ve become the agency that clients want to work with solely because of our people.

01

accountability

We believe that we’re only as good as our last placement. It’s this mentality that keeps us accountable to our clients and candidates alike. By benchmarking ourselves on each new project, our service has nowhere to go but up. We encourage continuous learning, ensure that we’re always abiding by the RCSA guidelines, and constantly strive to improve at everything that we do, aiming to be the most customer-centric recruiter in Australia.

02

humble

We’re not about the flashy stuff. You’ll find no skyscrapers with the Collar name or pricy retreats for our higher-ups. We believe in keeping things simple and forever appreciating the amazing opportunity in front of us - to become the greatest recruiting agency in Australia. Not the greatest because of our profit margins, but because we treat everyone with the respect they deserve. This approach is what has attracted our team of humble recruiters to us, helping us create a community and culture to be proud of and grateful for.

03

wellbeing

We value the wellbeing of our people above all else. The way we see it, all companies have a duty of care to their employees’ wellbeing, no matter where they are based or what they do. We choose to lead by example, prioritising our team’s and candidates’ well-being in every aspect of the way we do business. From being Great Place To Work-Certified and working towards the Family Friendly Workplaces Accreditation, we’re the most accredited recruitment agency in Australia.

04

safety

Safety is at the forefront of everything we do. Every day we place candidates in physically taxing roles. This is why we work so closely in partnership with our clients to understand the specific needs of the workplace, position descriptions and the level of risk our candidates may be exposed to. Alongside holding the ISO accreditation for Quality, Environment, and Health & Safety, we choose to go beyond industry standards. We provide our candidates with additional PPE garments, access to heating and cooling, extensive training, and anything else they may need to feel comfortable and safe throughout their placement.

05

respect

Respect is the common thread linking all of our values and shaping the way we approach everything here at Collar. Internally and externally, we treat everybody with the same high level of respect regardless of title or standing. Our respect for our clients, candidates, and fellow teammates is what inspires us to encourage collaboration, champion accountability, stay humble, prioritise wellbeing and ensure safety in everything we do.
