Whitefox Recruitment Says Sayonara to Canberra, Bets Big on Booming Southeast Queensland

A New Fox in Town: Whitefox Recruitment Says Sayonara to Canberra, Bets Big on Booming Southeast Queensland

Hold onto your hats, Gold Coast! There’s a new game in town. After racking up wins in Canberra and becoming the toast of the recruitment industry, Whitefox Recruitment is ready to take on a new challenge.

It’s time for a changing of the guard, as the agency transitions from its Canberra stronghold, setting its sights on the sunny shores and booming potential of Southeast Queensland.

With nearly four years of blazing a trail in the recruitment industry, a string of accolades and global recognition, it’s been an illustrious journey. Luke Hemmings, the wily and pioneering Managing Director, has decided it’s time for a new chapter for Whitefox Recruitment.

From humble beginnings as a one-man operation in 2019, Whitefox became a tour de force in Canberra’s recruitment scene, bolstering local businesses with an impressive database of over 7800 top-tier candidates.

The tireless team worked magic, helping businesses bloom while propelling Whitefox to the forefront of the recruitment industry. Its slick operations even earned the gong of ‘Most Efficient Recruitment Agency – Asia Pacific Region’ at the recent Australian Enterprise Awards. Not too shabby, eh?

Whitefox’s Phillip office will wrap up operations on Friday 28th July 2023, drawing the curtain on one of Canberra’s brightest success stories. The legacy is one of unrivalled service, steadfast support for local businesses, and a deep commitment to clients and candidates alike. But like all pioneers, Whitefox knows that to keep growing, one must always seek out new frontiers.

A carefully considered strategy and thorough evaluation drove the decision to pivot from Canberra. No hard feelings, though; Canberra was a brilliant breeding ground. But as the saying goes, “change is the only constant,” and this change is all about aligning more closely with the evolving business landscape and Whitefox’s future growth trajectory.

Contrary to what the local chatter may imply, the move isn’t a commentary on Canberra’s merits. Canberra was a brilliant stomping ground, filled with unique strengths and opportunities, particularly within the Australian Public Service sector.

The city will always hold a special place in the Whitefox story, and the team’s fond memories of collaborations with exceptional professionals in both public and private sectors will not fade.

The heartfelt farewell to Canberra, however, is only one side of the story. The other side is all about a warm welcome to the Gold Coast and the exciting new prospects this thriving market offers. Southeast Queensland, we hope you’re ready to be dazzled!

From Monday 14th August 2023, Whitefox Recruitment is making its grand entrance into the Gold Coast recruitment market. The coast is on a meteoric rise, offering ample growth opportunities and the potential for us to provide that fresh, innovative approach to recruitment that is so needed. Our fantastic team, already teeming with some of the best in the business, can’t wait to show you what Whitefox values look like in action.

As we expand into this dynamic market, we’re not only focused on recruiting top-tier talent, but also on continuing our commitment to developing our people. We’ll be providing them with a nurturing culture, structured training programs, and the best career opportunities in the industry. We’re not here just to change lives, but also to change the industry, making it more human, more understanding, and much, much cooler.

One thing remains constant in this exciting transition – Whitefox’s enduring commitment to the people who matter most: our clients and candidates. We’ll always be passionate about providing tailored services to help you match the right opportunities, achieve your goals, and essentially, change your life.

So, watch out, Gold Coast, because we’re not stopping. If anything, we’re just getting started.

Whitefox is all set to shake up the recruitment scene for the better. We’re turning the page on the Canberra chapter, marking our last day there on 28th July 2023. After that, you’ll find us soaking up the sun and making big waves on the Gold Coast.

The team at Whitefox Recruitment can’t wait to help you and your business achieve new heights. To the Canberra community, thank you for the unforgettable journey. To the Gold Coast, let’s make some magic happen!
