They say success is the product of “chance meeting opportunity”. So, when Richard landed on Mantech’s doorstep in 2000 after a lengthy sojourn in Africa and Israel, that moment materialised. A natural and instinctive recruiter with a flair for joining the dots, Richard has sourced critical resources for many of Australia’s flagship technology projects; from blue sky Startups right through to Australia’s largest product development projects. His client list is truly a who’s who of the Australian innovation sector. Trusted and respected by C-Level executives, investors and key stakeholders, Richard often engages and partners with companies at the very early phases of their growth. Familiar with the challenges faced by visionaries, Richard is well able to optimise recruiting strategies to leverage the right talent at the right time.
While he is running the business, Richard is still very much a hands-on recruiter, and supports the team with ongoing training, filling roles and BD.
A graduate of UNSW, Richard enjoys travelling the world ( and Australia) , scuba diving, photography and video production (not quite Spielberg standard, but nevertheless….).
He is a father of 3 humans and 2 schnauzers that often accompany him to the office.
“ Richard approached me with my dream job when I wasn't even looking for a new one. He convinced me to pursue this opportunity slightly outside my previous experience and I am happy he did.
Richard was very helpful during the weeks long multi step process, efficient and on top of things. He stayed in contact the whole time and made every step a good experience. Even when the virus lock down hit midway everything still went smooth. Always available, it was a pleasure to be in touch with him throughout the process.
I had never worked with an external recruiter before and would highly recommend him to everyone. ”
