Greg Savage is a serious force to be reckoned with in the recruitment field – not only in Australia but across the globe.  His blog The Savage Truth was named one of ‘Australia’s Top 20 Best Business Blogs‘ in 2015 and Greg himself was recently voted ‘The most influential person in the Australian recruitment industry in the past 60 years’.  He has over 35 years experience and is a regular keynote speaker at recruitment conferences around the world.*

Nicole Underwood runs a hugely successful executive search and consulting firm in Adelaide and takes a holistic approach when it comes to talent management.  Interestingly, she was actually hired by Greg Savage way back when to set up the Adelaide office of the firm ‘Recruitment Solutions’, and so her recruitment journey began.  Nicole’s blog incorporates leadership insights with discussions on retention, work-life blend and leadership to name but a few.

Mark Pearce originally hails from the UK, but now works as Client Relationship Manager at Fircroft Australia which is based in Perth.  His blog is aimed at both job seekers and recruiters, and touches on topics like ‘Why Candidates are losing faith in Recruiters’ and ‘Has Curiosity Become Irrelevant in Recruitment?’ Some great food for thought for recruiters.
