Australian and New Zealand recruitment bloggers: A random list

When Recruiter Daily took a sabbatical three months ago, I took it upon myself to find out who in the Australian and New Zealand recruitment community were active bloggers. It’s proven a bit tougher than I thought but here’s a run-down (in no particular order) of those in the recruitment community who are blogging at least semi-regularly.

I am sure that I have missed a few people. If I have then please let me know. I will update this list periodically.  

As a blogger, I know how important it is to receive feedback by way of site visits and blog comments so I would ask you to visit these sites, read the various posts and leave comments. I promise you every blogger on this list will be grateful you did so. 

Considering the recruitment agency sector alone, has over 15,000 employees, my list of seventeen names would indicate there’s plenty of space and opportunity for other bloggers.

Why don’t you give blogging a go?


  1. Just finding time to blog has been the issue for me. I do feel that it is an important part of my business and one that I will be paying a lot more attention to in 2012.

  2. Regular blogging will build your audience and develop relationships with potential candidates. Eventually, the talent will come to you as you'll be known as the 'expert'.

  3. Hi Ross,

    Just wondering by chance if you know of an updated list? I am searching online and thinking surely someone has done this before me :)

    1. Hi Amanda, I haven't compiled an updated list, nor do I know of one from anybody else, although I'd be confident that there is one out there somewhere. Sorry, I can't be of more assistance.
