Working with Telstra....

“My recruitment experience with Telstra was outstanding. They are down to earth, professional and gave me great advice throughout the whole process. He has a sound knowledge of the industry and I would have no hesitation in recommending them.”
Keith McGrath - ACA

"Louis is a dedicated professional with extensive knowledge within a variety of networks. I have worked with Louis on a number of assignments and have always valued his input and expertise. He has brought skilled professionals to us where we have previously struggled to attract them. Telstra are supportive and collaborative and will be a partner well into the future. I highly recommend Louis and Telstra as a partner.”
Head of Resourcing - BBC

"Of all our suppliers I feel Telstra understand our business best and do not give us the usual sales pressure. They will work hard at the start with us to make sure we both have the same idea of the requirement and we can then leave them to it with absolute confidence. One of the differences of working with Louis and his team is their honest approach which is either "very rare in this industry." or "appreciated”."
Andrew Swain NATS Technical Account Manager - Capita Group

"Louis has a superior understanding and grasp of the specific intricacies of working within the IT recruitment market. He has successfully delivered high calibre candidates to provide some of the strongest shortlists I've seen. Combine this with his strong customer relationships and business acumen, I would recommend him for any search assignments."
Programme Director - London 2012 Olympics

"Telstra Associates have a unique approach to recruitment in that you are free to continue with your daily job in complete confidence that all positions are being managed and resourced without constant calls and updates. I have been working with Louis and Telstra for six years at various corporations and I feel we have a partnership that has never failed to deliver a consistent level of talent per role.”
