Have you caught yourself thinking about the recruitment market recently? Where are the candidates, what are their motivators and how can I best retain my staff? Look no further, Rarekind are giving you an inside look at the market.

Tech and IT

The world of tech is fast paced and forever changing. Candidates are becoming more readily available, looking to upskill, grow and develop in a new organisation. More experienced candidates are on the market. A lot of contracts haven’t been extended recently, so there’s more people searching, for permanent roles too. We recently advertised for an ICT Service Delivery Manager and received over 250 quality applications. We have an abundance of candidates, so, if you’re ready to make the move as a business in finding your next superstar, reach out.


The engineering market is steady. We’re seeing a tighten in the candidate market due to large scale government, commercial and infrastructure projects. This is pushing up salaries and increasing demand for Engineers with experience across the energy and utilities sector.

We are seeing an influx of candidates across the FMCG industry. Skills shortages, lack of tradespeople and infrastructure projects are facilitating this demand and we continue to see this driving expectations across multi disciplines.

Corporate and Executive

The Corporate and Executive world is constantly changing.

We’ve seen an influx of Marketing candidates enter the market, from juniors to Marketing Managers and Executives. With their creative flair, they’re ready to transform businesses.

As we edge closer to end of financial year seeing an increase in Finance opportunities.

Naturally, with changes to IR laws in 2024, specialised HR, particularly WHS and risk management has been a hot topic and growth area for businesses.

A general downturn in Admin roles due to automation and outsourcing, however there has been an increase in specialised admin support and customer facing admin roles.

Recently we advertised a Customer Service role within 5 days we had over 400 applications. Look no further for your next professional Customer Service Officer.

Supply Chain, Industrial and Trades

The Candidate market in Western Sydney has changed significantly, particularly for trade-qualified individuals. Candidates who hold their trade qualifications now prefer permanent positions over temporary ones. Candidates are also more driven towards job security and culture over remuneration.
