How is UniRecruit different?

We focus solely on recruitment for leading Australian and New Zealand universities and tertiary institutions. We understand that higher education recruitment requires a proactive, strategic approach, especially when it comes to hard to fill roles at the executive level.
All of our Directors and Senior Consultants have a minimum of 10 years’ higher education experience, which means our team has an unmatched, in-depth understanding of the sector and an extensive network of contacts to help unearth the best candidate for each role.
As sector specialists with decades of experience working both within, and for, universities and tertiary institutions, we understand clients’ needs as only specialists can.
We build an accurate and comprehensive brief, covering not only the skills and qualifications our clients need, but also other issues as relevant, whether that is cultural fit or suitability for promotion and development. As a result, UniRecruit’s success rate stands at 98 per cent, well ahead of the industry average of 85 per cent, with around 80 per cent of our work coming from existing clients.

Why should I use an executive search firm?

In the highly competitive higher education sector, finding the best person for the job, wherever they may be in the world, is an increasingly difficult task.
UniRecruit’s proven process, personal engagement with candidates and specialist expertise means that no stone is left unturned. Our clients can be confident that the best people for the job are those UniRecruit puts forward. In addition, our thorough, but flexible process moves as fast as our clients – meaning there is no delay, unnecessary expense or time-consuming internal processes for our clients to manage and no risk of having to re-run a failed process. We do all the hard work, quickly and effectively.
Our specialist knowledge and global reach means we have the ability to fill even the most challenging roles. We are proud that so many of our clients become repeat customers, due to our service, outstanding value proposition and industry-leading, 98 per cent success rate.

How do clients benefit from UniRecruit's services?

UniRecruit is serious about maintaining long-standing relationships with our clients. In fact, around 80 per cent of our work is repeat business, some from clients who have been with our company since its inception in 2009.
Clients benefit from UniRecruit’s service model, with a dedicated Director case managing each job. This means clients have one point of contact throughout the entire recruitment process. Our Directors take a ‘hands-on’ approach to ensure the best possible results and full client satisfaction.

What is the application process for candidates?

Candidates can review UniRecruit’s list of current opportunities online.
UniRecruit acts as a ‘career partner’ for candidates. We have the experience to know that applicants who may be unsuccessful for one role may well be perfect for another, so we strive to maintain contact with our candidate community and highlight relevant opportunities as they arise. We believe in establishing long-term connections with candidates – just as we believe in long-term client relationships.
