About us

Our success has always been built on our core philosophy – ‘taking the long term view’ and having just celebrated our ten year anniversary, it seems to be working.

We chose our name carefully, because to us a sustainable business is based on establishing relationships for the long term. We will partner with you, ask the right questions to understand your business needs and proactively seek out the best contract and permanent talent in the passive market.

We specialise in placing accounting, finance and tech professionals in successful organisations across all industry sectors in Australia. Our consultants each have specialist niche vertical expertise in their field, enabling a proactive approach to the passive candidate market to unearth the “best in market” talent that isn’t usually actively applying to job boards.

Our long term outlook also extends to the way we work with our candidates. We believe in making connections that will last throughout your career. It is this approach that has led to us placing many of our candidates multiple times over, and coming back to us as clients when they are looking to recruit. We separate ourselves by being transparent. We are known for providing honest candidate and client feedback to support improvements on both ends.

We focus on understanding the needs of our clients and candidates, and one way we do this is by keeping in touch with the people that we service. Connecting with the sectors we work within, whether that’s by hosting MeetUps or by maintaining a presence at industry events, is how we ‘walk to walk’ when it comes to being industry experts.

We also feel that, as a business, we have a responsibility to the community that we’re a part of. Our involvement with charitable causes and initiatives is of great importance to us, and giving back is a key priority for everyone at SustainAbility.

We have consulted with the utmost integrity for the last ten years, and we don’t plan on changing now! If you are looking to take the next step in your career, or you need a tech or accounting professional to help your business reach its targets, please get in touch.
