Success with Certus

And Australia is producing more than its fair share of global leaders. The combination of an educated population, the Aussie ‘can do’ spirit and the collaborative approach shared by so many tech hubs and seed ventures means the Australian Tech Investment market remains strong.

With funding comes growth objectives and they are often aggressive!

The ability to scale after a funding event is crucial to success and will determine the availability of further funding or even the future viability of the business.

  • “I wasn’t actively looking for a job when Charlotte from Certus reached out to me for a possible opportunity. Charlotte is a known and reputable Workday recruiter. She was able to explain (and convince) how good the opportunity is for me and my career. I gave it a go and went ahead for an interview. I got the offer in less than a week. The recruitment process was seamless and communication was timely. Overall, I’m very satisfied with how the whole process was carried out and most specially, I’m very happy with the outcome. I believe Charlotte will always have your best interests at heart.”​

Working with Charlotte Schmidt has been a pleasure, she was hardworking and focused for the duration of the campaign and we couldn't have received the outcome we did without her dedicated and tenacious approach. Charlotte partnered with us, understood the brief and continued to search to find the right skillset within a candidate short market and a tough remuneration range. We are delighted to have our in house WD team now complete.”
