Wendy Donovan

General Manager & Senior Recruitment Specialist

Specialising in

Wendy has 20+ years of wide industry consulting experience with an ability and experience in recruiting widely in roles spanning all functions of an organisation. She successfully grew her own franchise business in the training industry, which quickly grew to over 3,500 corporate clients across a wide range of sectors across finance & banking, government, IT, medical and pharmaceutical, manufacturing, heavy engineering and logistics. In addition to this she has been instrumental in facilitating major cultural change projects and providing HR solutions in more recent years.

Wendy’s earlier career began in engineering research and medical technology, giving you an advantage that you don’t get with most recruiters; her technical ability allows her to be a deeper specialist in engineering, technology, manufacturing, environmental and research fields. We have successfully placed experts and specialists in engineering and project management roles for mining, power, rail, environmental, and infrastructure industries where these roles are integral to their success. Wendy’s search and discovery abilities are second to none when it comes to finding passive, highly specialised talent in competitive, scarce and hard-to-find talent markets. This is evidenced with her recent success in recruiting nationally and internationally for highly specialised engineering, product development and project management roles within Australia’s growing Space industry.

Coupled with her commercial and recruitment experience she provides a perfect “deep” resource for everything engineering which includes current market knowledge, salaries, and hiring trends:

Mechanical engineering

Civil and structural engineering

Electrical and electronic engineering

Chemical engineering

Process engineering

Project engineering

Project management

Health, Safety, Quality  and Environmental engineering

Wendy holds a Master of Business Administration (Marketing & Economics) and a Bachelor of Science (Chemistry - First Class Honours).

Wendy is an Accredited Professional Member of the Recruitment & Consulting Services Association (RCSA), and in her spare time you’ll find her with her family, keeping fit or going on an adventure. Trekking Peru, travelling off-road across the Simpson Desert, windsurfing or competing in the odd triathlon are just a few she already has under her belt.
