Spring Into Action 

This is our first year hosting RecFest AUS and we are very excited to bring the UK’s Can’t-Miss event for in-house recruitment down under! Our theme this year is Spring! We are concentrating on recruitment stories on renewal and revolution. RecFest AUS is a one day festival of all things in-house recruitment and resourcing. It is where recruiters go to be educated and celebrated, with emphasis on the power of sharing.

We are building RecFest AUS to be one of the largest conversations about in-house recruitment in Australia. Expert speakers Bill Borman and Hung Lee will be leading the conversation, with local speakers sharing their experiences and stories. This unique format encourages peer to peer conversations just as much as it highlights our speakers.

Valuable learning and networking are key at our events. Our theme is Spring, and we ask you all to have some fun with the theme and come dressed in your best Spring festival gear. Think Coachella with daffodils, Glastonbury without the mud! Spring into action and make your way to RecFest AUS 2018. Don’t miss out!
