'We've been briefed on five or six roles in Queensland, with salaries north of $130,000, where the companies are offering to support people with relocation packages,' according to Meyer. At the same time 'A lot of candidates are talking about the opportunity to move interstate,' as jobs demand picked up around the country.
In response to the market demand the company has just established a Brisbane based team and will have four IT recruiters based in Queensland. It will offer permanent and contract services.
Demand was such that 'Brisbane is almost matching Sydney and Melbourne,' he said.
Mr Meyer said further expansion was planned for West Australia and Auckland later this year as the company seeks to expand its footprint outside of its traditional Sydney-Melbourne axis. This would be the first time the company had offered IT recruitment services in New Zealand, said Mr Meyer.
With 30 consultants specialising in IT recruitment currently, Mr Meyer said that would grow to 35 or 40 by year's end.
The Brisbane technology group will be led by Jonathan Hottot who has moved across from Michael Page International.
