The Spirit of Collaboration

Many of you may know that Elias Recruitment works closely with other agencies to expand opportunities for our candidates and widen the talent pool for our clients. Part of this is through  network called NPAworldwide. I have been lucky to be involved in the leadership and was recently the Chairman of the Board from March 2020 to March 2022.

ANZ members had their first conference since Covid at the beautiful seaside resort of Manly on Sydney’s northern beaches. Guests came from across  Australia and New Zealand as well as international speaker Mike “Batman” Cohen and NPAworldwide President Dave Nerz from the US.

The conference was jam-packed with great content including topics on differentiating your brand, understanding the talent market and immigration, facilitating Diversity and Inclusion, latest legal issues affecting recruiters and some very handy tips on online sourcing.

It was lovely to be able to socialise and catch up with old friends and welcome some new ones. We had two new members just join a few days before the conference. It was also a chance to reconnect with our sponsors and partners.

The highlight for me was the NPA Spirit. Last year Simone Allan from Mondo Search who lives near Manly won the NPAworldwide’s Community Service Award for her work founding the Women’s Resilience Centre.

We spontaneously decided to auction off prizes and sell clues at our Trivia night in support of this great cause. Thanks to the generosity of several sponsors and members, we raised $10,000 for the Women’s Resilience Centre in just a few hours.  All due to the spirit of collaboration.
