What experience have you had recruiting the talent you need in Wollongong?

We made the decision to pay a Sydney salary in Wollongong and provide 12% superannuation (legal minimum is 9.5%) – this has attracted a lot of attention and resulted in us having our pick of the candidates.

The team members we employ have a capital city salary with a regional cost of living, so they come out on top. Plus, they don’t have the costs of commuting.

On top of the remuneration we have challenging customer problems for the team to solve. As a result, we’ve never lost one employee for more money or looking for harder challenges.

What is the advantage of living in Wollongong yet having Sydney so nearby?

International flights are 60 minutes away by car or 90 minutes on the train.

If you’ve got the family or are packing event material for a work trip, then park with the valet at the International terminal and save yourself the hassle. If you’re flying solo, just take the train.

You can get up to Sydney easily enough (and get out of there once you’re exhausted!). Even if you want to head up to the Opera House (Vivid or Herbie Hancock) it is super easy.
