Permanent recruitment


Our approach...

We are a white-collar recruitment agency specialising in sourcing people with the capacity to stay and excel. 

We serve a range of industries, including:

  • Mining / minerals
  • Oil and gas
  • Engineering
  • Accounting
  • Finance
  • Construction
  • Education
  • Government
  • Healthcare
  • Legal
  • Management
  • Manufacturing
  • Not-for-profit
  • Logistics

Our aim is to source widely to produce a strong shortlist and provide you with quality information relevant to the job vacancy so, you are in a position to make a qualified decision on who you should ultimately hire.

Hence, we are a service provider and we do not sell CVs like other recruitment agencies. 

18-month guarantee

Our major point of difference to other agencies is our extensive and unmatched guarantee (industry standard is only 3-months) should the employment be terminated.

Our extended guarantee means our interests are mutually aligned - to recruit High Achievers who will excel and stay.

"Christian and the 11 Recruitment team have assisted me with finding staff several times.

I've worked in personnel before and used personnel companies over many years, but none have matched the integrity, enthusiasm and pride 11 Recruitment take to match the right people to the right job.

One conversation with Christian and you will know what I mean."

Retained service

At 11, we specialise in sourcing either:

  • Unique candidates; or
  • Where synergy between the company and the employee is important.

To achieve this, we provide a service not a product. We charge for the service provided on a retainer basis:

  • 1/3 of the fee on commencement of the assignment,
  • 1/3 when interviewing, and
  • 1/3 upon acceptance of employment.

Thus, we charge as we progress through the recruitment process.

At 11 we are a team

If you have worked with other agencies, you would typically have dealt with one consultant who did everything. This can produce bottlenecks with no one to delegate to and important checks can easily slip through the cracks.

At 11, there are often two to three staff members working a job vacancy.

We are a team, and work as a team - for you.

"Ashleigh was fantastic and kept us in the loop during the whole process, provided detailed information about the candidates and also kept searching until we were totally satisfied with the individual we finally employed.

A very pleasant experience for us as business owners and definitely a great company to deal with.

Thanks Ash for making the experience an awesome one."

No individual commission

Another fact that makes 11 a rarity amongst recruitment agencies in Australian is that we do not pay our staff an individual commission.

Sure, we have a team bonus based on team performance that works well, particularly if we have a job that is difficult to fill as everyone is incentivised to assist in filling the vacancy. Our approach is “One for all and all for one”.

Your satisfaction is paramount.

"Christian is one of the most innovative people I have come across recently and the way that he is promoting his clients is outstanding.

As an example just look up his profile on LinkedIn and see for yourself."

Filling ratio - 98.5%

Consultants working in a contingency agency (only paid for successful placements) may have more than 10 jobs listed at any given time. This is required when they only fill 10-20% of their open jobs. Typically, the easy jobs get top priority with the harder jobs left to chance - that job could be yours.

At 11, our consultants typically have no more than three jobs at any given time. Therefore, a greater focus can be given to every job, including those that are more difficult to fill.

This is how we close 98.5% of our listed jobs - far greater than the industry standard of 20%.
