Karl Rowlands started his career in the UK as an infrastructure technology recruiter for a renowned global recruitment business. Since then Karl has worked as a senior appointment’s technology recruiter across the whole of Europe and Australia along with successfully launching a specialist ASX300 board level recruitment agency based in Australia. After recently successfully turning the fortunes of a community services sector recruitment agency based in Australia, Karl decided to launch his own Talent Consultancy.

Most of his time is spent advising a variety of domestic businesses in several sectors on how to get the most out of their internal recruitment strategy whilst improving hiring results and saving on costs. Karl is also currently advising two domestic recruitment companies, so he has a unique understanding of the job market from both the candidate and the clients perspective.

After recently discovering just how unfair and hard it is for candidates who are either refugees or who are currently seeking asylum in Australia it was decided that Karl would try and help.

David O’Halloran is a registered occupational therapist with 30 years in the employment sector including direct service delivery, program management, project management and policy development at national and international level. David is a PhD candidate and teaches and publishes research on employment services.
