About Us

Testimonials

We go to great lengths to position ourselves as the ‘recruiter of choice’ for our clients and our candidates.

"From my very first interaction with Slade Group, I immediately felt their authenticity. Throughout the preparation process leading into the interview stage I was extremely impressed with the amount of detail that was involved. It was the most qualified and focused procedure, which I found prepared me better than anything that I have experienced before. This level of detail and investment from Slade allowed me to become more in tune with the areas that required attention for the interviews and gave me the ability to excel. This professionalism coupled with their genuine nature made the entire experience an enjoyable one and my most memorable to date."
Jason Brettell
Development Director, Places Victoria
"Slade Group understood the brief from WorkSafe and could answer all my questions about the role and organisation... As a candidate, I felt well supported and fully informed during the entire process. I would highly recommend Slade as a potential partner in executive recruitment.”
Marnie Williams
Executive Director, Health & Safety WorkSafe Victoria
"Laurie provided invaluable strategic input into the recruitment process and ensured we were able to gain two great new employees who have made a significant contribution to our organisation. Slade Executive will be our first call for any future recruitment needs."
Gerard Kennedy
Chief Financial Officer, Golf Australia
Clearly Slade Group is up there with the best of them when it comes to recruitment methodology, but at the end of the day it is the depth of knowledge about what needs to be achieved rather than what needs to be done that means you get the right person into the role... know the people, know the culture, throw in good processes and you get good outcomes that are worth paying for
Malcolm Jackman
Chief Executive, SAFECOM
"Andrew Barr and Slade Executive far exceeded our expectations. Our candidates for interview were excellent and Andrew’s extensive knowledge of education, comprehensive support and expertise allowed us to secure three outstanding senior staff. We are delighted with the result that will significantly support our endeavours and growth over the next 10 years.”
Andrew Ponsford
Principal, Southern Cross Grammar
"In my role as HR Manager, the recruitment of excellent calibre candidates to meet our resourcing requirements is an on-going challenge. Recruiting in the professional services context requires a pro-active sourcing approach and matching these skills to our firm’s unique culture requires both business insight and discernment. Shaunagh McEvoy understood the context of our resourcing needs. She developed a comprehensive brief with me, so that we attracted candidates well suited to the role who met both the culture and skills requirements. Shaunagh focuses on building long-term, value-adding relationships and achieving sustained satisfaction for both the client organisation and the candidate. In the fast paced, competitive recruitment industry, Shaunagh’s approach is refreshing.”
