Meet the people that make The Onset the best damn technology recruitment company in Australia
Ronny understood my career aspirations and successfully managed to align my profile with opportunities. We worked perfectly as a team in order to make sure that both me and the company are an excellent match… Thanks to The Onset I could find exactly the position I was looking for!
I had a very stress free and one-of-a-kind recruitment experience with Christina. She happened to connect with me at the time when I was ready and looking for something that will give me an opportunity to do full stack development… I value sincerity, honesty and professionalism and she has demonstrated them all.
…The roles Onset had were all really exciting and challenging, I eventually accepted an offer… If I have any questions regarding payroll or need an update on market or new role/contract I just shoot an email or give a call. I’m really happy with Onset’s services and I’ve referred quite a few of my friends!
The entire process was very smooth. They worked very hard to find the perfect match for me. I wouldn’t be able to find that without them… The entire team is amazing and super friendly. Tasha and Ronny are the real MVPs.
Julien is one of those rare professionals that you always hope to encounter during your career – and when I found myself on the wrong side of 50 and looking for a new role, I was fortunate enough to encounter him. His professionalism and dedication have him stand head and shoulders above his peers in the industry.
The recruitment process with Julien at The Onset has been a great experience from the first moment… he demonstrated a good knowledge of the technical field and its context, as well as its market inside and out… Not only he’s helped me to find a successful job that I like, but he’s also continued to follow up with me regarding my achievements.
I am amazed by Farid’s ability to build good relationship with his clients. The constant follow ups and updates plus his genuine concern makes him a stand out from the rest. It was lovely working with Farid and I would highly recommend him to all my friends and colleagues.
Throughout the process I found Christina to be extremely helpful and available. Christina and the whole Onset team helped me to secure the role I have wanted for a long time… It was very easy to reach Christina via email or by phone. …Overall, the process and experience with the Onset was fantastic in my case.
I found The Onset to have a strong knowledge of the value of Product to a business, and importantly, a network of senior product contacts within the tech businesses I was targeting for my next role. This was instrumental in pushing the recruitment process forward – within a relatively short time I had multiple interviews and landed a key role that I love.
Jay was absolutely fantastic. Out of all the recruiters I have worked with, he is the most professional, knowledgeable and genuinely passionate recruiter I have had the pleasure to work with. He very quickly found multiple roles that fit my requirements, and I couldn’t be happier in my chosen role. I don’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone who is looking for the next step in their career.
What struck me most was how thorough they were. My consultant, Sean, insisted I meet him in advance of my meeting with my prospective employer and put me through my paces testing my knowledge, company research, questions for hiring manager.
I had a great experience working with Kris recently, who helped me secure an exciting new role. Right from our first conversation, Kris came across as very capable in understanding my skills and career aspirations, and matching it one of the positions he was recruiting for. Kris kept me updated through the entire process.
The Onset is one of the best recruitment firms I have worked with. Kris is great at developing relationships with candidates and provided excellent guidance on the Australian job market. Kris recognises your talents for connecting you with the right job opportunities, and then keeps candidates informed and motivated during the entire recruitment process
It was an absolute pleasure from the day one. Kris created a friendly and relaxed atmosphere and was extremely attentive to all my requests and questions. He was incredibly supportive throughout interview stages by sending additional information and questionnaires to built up my confidence and knowledge about the company. Overall it was unusually quick and smooth recruiting process I have ever had and I cant recommend Kris high enough!
Overall I found the process to be managed very professionally. I never had to worry about anything slipping through the cracks because it was very clear that you were on top of it.
I’ve just signed the contract with my new employer today. Julien read between the lines to strike up a deal which has everybody winning. During the whole process Julien kept me informed of all the goings on.
Greg was extremely helpful in securing a great career opportunity for me. He is knowledgeable, responsive and understands the analytics landscape for his clients. I highly recommend Greg if you are looking for your next career move.
The Onset was a massive help throughout the whole recruitment process. I felt as though they genuinely cared about my experience and satisfaction with the role. I’d recommend any product, UX, UI designer looking for interesting roles to reach out to The Onset
“I am grateful for Onset (especially Tasha & Ronny) for providing me with my first job in Australia, it is one of the biggest moments in my life.
Thank you to everybody at Onset for helping me directly & indirectly throughout my Journey.”
I felt that Tasha had my best interests at heart and worked hard to find a company that would be a good fit for me. Soon after, I was starting in a great team that matched my skillset and personality really well. Tasha organised and guided me through each stage of the interview process, answering any questions I had. I definitely recommend her, whether you’re looking for a new job or building out your team
I really appreciate the time he took with me, challenging and coaching me to an extent. Dan really made the effort to get to know me and where I was coming from and I really took a lot from our conversations that helped me throughout the process of finding the next role and company that was right for me. Dan is someone I would definitely recommend to others as I believe he is fantastic at what he does.
“I have worked with many recruitment consultants and I can say with confidence that Farid is definitely top of the notch His passion and professionalism and how he emotionally connects with candidates is extraordinary!”
It was really good experience working with you so far. You have been always available to clarify any questions. Your commitment and timely communication is really appreciated. The recruitment process was very simple and quick. It did not take long days to keep the ball rolling on the recruitment process. I am looking forward to keep working with you in the future as well.
Farid was a pleasure to work with; he was very efficient in organizing my engagement with Woolies X within a short period of time. During our regular check-ins, he provided all the necessary information to help navigate the organization. Really appreciate the open communication and all the support. Thank you.
It’s an absolute pleasure working with Farid Ahmed. He made sure I thoroughly understood the role, what my future responsibilities are, and how the opportunity would fit my career goals. He was open to all the inquiries I had and guided me throughout the application process and company onboarding. Everything went smoothly despite the challenging COVID-19 times. I am happy with the role I am in right now! Thank you Farid!
I want to take some time to appreciate the professional and understanding approach taken by Mr Farid Ahmed during my tenure with Onset and WooliesX. He is always there whenever I need any sort of assistance with my work with WooliesX. He takes out time from his busy schedule to check out with me if things are going smoothly for me or not. During the time of my interview process also, he was quick to pass on any sort of information which I may be needing about next interview schedule etc. I can rely on him any time as far as my dealing with Onset and WooliesX is concerned.
Tasha is genuinely supportive and a very well listener. She has good knowledge in the industry so you won’t feel the gaps and sometimes she can express even clearer about yourself. Tasha has also demonstrated her responsibility well. Though I was not successful for the first company due to my lack of experience, she was keeping her eyes open for me on other opportunities. Finally, I successfully landed at WooliesX as a Machine Learning Engineer, which I considered a much better and fitted one. I appreciate Tasha’s help very much!
The recruitment process was well organised by Onset and I didn’t face any problems. Tasha tried to understand my work experience and my interests before suggesting a new role to me. I felt she was very professional and friendly to approach. I like the fact that she respected my goals and didn’t compel me to take up an interview she had to fill immediately. Overall, I had a very positive experience with Onset and wouldn’t hesitate to approach them in the future.
Danielle was very professional, communicative and knowledgeable. She was also extremely supportive and encouraging, and achieved an outstanding result for me. I would recommend her to anyone.
Prior to reaching out regarding my current role, I had never heard of The Onset; but was pleasantly surprised to discover they were hiring for some very well known companies in the Cyber Security industry. Better still was the amount of support provided by Mikky and her team. It helped me feel prepared and confident going into the interviews, and reassured throughout the hiring process. Needless to say, the entire experience was excellent and I would highly recommend them.
I had a chance to work with Tasha for my last gig, and I’d highly recommend her as a recruiter. She was very clear from the beginning about the process, i.e. I was informed about what the process will look like before the start. I was always kept informed about the status during the process and even after landing the job, she reaches out from time to time to know how things are going. Definitely one of the best recruiters I’ve worked so far.
Danielle has been absolutely amazing throughout the whole recruitment process! She is very knowledgeable, professional and at the same time very friendly and approachable. She is brilliant at what she does 🙂
Reema took her valuable time to go through each and every detail about the role and she understood my experience and strength. She was continuously in touch with me and clarified all my queries. She was fantastic throughout the process. She made me comfortable throughout the process . I cant thank her enough for being such a good FRIEND in helping me to secure this role.
