Who are We?

West Recruitment was formed in 2006 to service the rapidly expanding Western Sydney market in Accounting and Finance. Our model was simple- connect the best talent in Western Sydney with the growing corporate landscape throughout suburban Sydney. The model was an instant success, and as a result we won the ‘BRW Fast Starter’ award in 2009 and 2010. Since then, West has expanded to have an office in the Sydney CBD allowing us to be able to service the entire Sydney region. The idea for West was born when our Directors David Smith & Sean Johnston grew tired of the 'one size fits all’ approach to large agency recruitment. Dave & Sean wanted to create a recruitment environment that was fun to work in, yet gave every consultant the freedom and support to reach their potential.

"West has given me a real Work / Life balance. It's great for those of us with young families to be there for the important milestones in our children's lives" Dean Mumford - Senior Manager
