Canberra, 27 September 2017: Global recruitment consultancy Michael Page today announced the opening of its Canberra office as part of its ambitious plans to expand into the Australian Capital Territory (ACT).
The Canberra office has been established to support the growing demand of the building, construction, infrastructure and technology sectors which are poised to create more jobs in the ACT. It will specialise in the recruitment of professionals skilled in finance, technology, supply chain, human resources, legal, sales and marketing.
Spurred by ACT’s ongoing government initiatives around public transportation, demand for skilled civil engineers and other construction specialists will drive the entry of more companies as well as a growing population.
Jim Roy, Director of Michael Page Australia who heads the Canberra office said, “We are confident that the continued growth of the ACT economy and in particular demand for professionals in areas including technology, management consulting, accounting, office support and construction will continue to attract talented professionals to Canberra.
He adds, “Canberra is the hub for ACT’s public sector but the private sector is fast growing, with many links to the other Australian and international markets. The number of private sector jobs has, therefore, seen a steady increase. In addition, affordable housing and sound public infrastructure is a strong attraction for the movement of Australian talent into Canberra, particularly for those looking for an affordable and high quality standard of living.”
Matthew Gribble, Regional Managing Director, Michael Page Australia and New Zealand said, “The opening of a new office in Canberra is an important investment to drive our Australia growth plans and further support strong international and regional expansion in Asia Pacific. I am excited that we now have an actual presence in Canberra to capture the burgeoning opportunities for both our permanent and contract business segments, building on our strategy to be the most trusted and valued recruitment partner in Australia.”
Michael Page has seen successful recruiting within Australia since the 1980s. The Canberra office adds to Michael Page’s long-standing presence in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth, with a reputation for being a well-respected global recruitment brand with deep knowledge of the Australian employment market.
