We are excited to announce Karlka Recruiting Group’s Recruitment Director, Laetitia Nicholson, has won the Sourcr Award for the Best Government (Queensland) Recruiter in 2022. Our organisation is honoured to receive this award.
The Sourcr Recruiter of the Year Awards recognise and celebrate the best talent in the industry who have gone above and beyond to deliver for their clients and candidates.
“Our goals at Karlka Recruiting Group have always been to bring together the Indigenous-to-Non-Indigenous network by providing national recruitment solutions, supporting local jobs, promoting diversity and equality, and making a real difference nationwide in organisations, and this award is recognition of all the hard work put in achieve our goals,” said Laetitia.
The recruitment industry continues to play a critical role in aiding the economic recovery of Australia as it returns to its new normal. Those who win a Sourcr Award are a part of a group raising the standard for the industry.
Operating since 2014 Karlka Recruiting Group (KRG), a joint venture in recruitment and labour hire with Nyiyaparli Traditional Owners, started as a blue-collar labour-hire business. KRG have become a Public Service Specialist, with a pool of white-collar contractors, following the launch of the Indigenous Procurement Policy in 2015.
Karlka Recruiting Group is 51% Indigenous owned, as Karlka Nyiyaparli Aboriginal Corporation a not-for-profit organisation has a 51% stake in this successful joint venture.
“Our organisation works with government and corporate clients to promote the integral role we play in increasing the rate of Indigenous employment and retention, as we recognise closing the gap in Indigenous unemployment requires a partnership approach with government, industry and client,” said Laetitia.
At KRG we provide white collar candidates to federal and state government clients on labour-hire basis, payroll services to pre-identified candidates, transparency and respect to clients and candidates, a smooth onboarding process, and personalised care.
We are proud to currently have over 500 candidates, on our books, across Australia working as labour-hire in federal and state government departments.
Karlka Recruiting Group services are provided Australia wide, mainly around capital cities, with a particular focus in ACT, New South Wales, Victoria, and Queensland. KRG recruits white collar candidates, in particular public servants between the APS3-EL2 levels across federal government, and public servants for NSW and QLD state governments.
Our organisation will continue to hold ourselves to high quality service and relationships, to build an effective connection between Indigenous and Non-Indigenous communities and businesses, to create lasting economic and social change.
