Hydrogen Group is a global specialist recruitment business, placing exceptional, hard to find candidates in over 70 countries. We empower people to fulfil their potential. We build teams, power businesses and we help them all to change the world.

The Role

During a global pandemic where many companies struggled to adapt, Hydrogen thrived. I'd argue that we were ahead of the curve when it came to working environments, autonomy and business agility, but I'd be lying if I said that's all it took. It's the people who spearheaded change and adapted to a world they never expected and who were rewarded for the work they put in.

We have always described Hydrogen Group as a company that's working to dispel the stereotypes and myths associated with recruitment, and with over 20 years of experience operating in the market, we have an enviable reputation, the newest technology and a great client base. We are raising the bar.

This successful individual needs to have experience onboarding junior consultants, recruiting into Private Practice on a global basis and have strong relationships with clients in both Australia and Asia.
