Grant is a wealth of recruiting knowledge; he loves keeping up to date with the latest recruitment trends and local market insights, and sharing these with his clients with whom he is an authentic adviser. You’ll often here Grant say things like ‘SEEK responses represents only 23% of the active job market, whereas 47% of candidates who are open to new opportunities are actually passive job seekers. That's almost 50% of the market that businesses aren't reaching, which is hugely limiting for Hiring Managers.’ The best part, he LOVES sharing his market knowledge and coaching others.
Prior to joining peoplefusion, Grant was the Owner/Operator of a national retail recruitment franchise based in Newcastle, where he worked with a variety of national and global companies in order to match them to exceptional candidates and create long term partnerships across Northern NSW. His success in the industry has been built on creating mutually beneficial working relationships with clients and candidates alike, maintaining a high level of integrity at all times, as well as transparent communication with all parties involved. Testament to this is Grant’s achievement of the Best All Round Candidate & Client Care Award by his employer in 2016, as well as being a Finalist for the Young Business Person of the Year Award 2017 with the Hunter Business Chamber.
When he isn’t scoring goals with his clients, you’ll find Grant at the gym training. A self-proclaimed fitness lover, he does his best to make it to the gym five days a week while navigating the adventures of parenthood with his beautiful wife and newborn baby. Passionate about Martial Arts, Grant even holds a Black Belt within the World Taekwondo Federation!
