Testimonials

We pride ourselves on long-standing relationships
with both clients and candidates.

But don’t just take our word for it.

``I found Samuels Donegan after a couple of terrible career blows that I wondered if I’d ever recover from. You helped me professionally and emotionally get back on my feet and for that I will always be grateful - for your kindness and sheer human spirit. Without a doubt, you are the most professional recruitment specialists I’ve ever worked with.``

Candidate Simone, National HR Manager

``It was an absolute pleasure working with Samuels Donegan – not your average recruitment experience, they really take the time to get to know you and best market your experience. An end-to-end service that’s all about the match.``

In-betweeners Anthony, Senior HR Consulting Manager

``Samuels Donegan packs a mighty punch when it comes to sourcing, seeking and deeply understanding the HR talent market. Working with such a professional duo is a breath of fresh air when it comes to seeking out the best.``

Employer Ellie, HR Lead Asia Pacific
About us

Our truths

We spent many years working together in HR recruitment and began to see the need for something different. A fresh take, an agency with passion, where ethical recruitment is mandatory, and humour and innovation are injected into the everyday.

We took the leap and Samuels Donegan was created. Daunting? Yes. Thrilling? Absolutely.

Unlike others, we actually listen to what you tell us about what’s important, but also why it’s important. We’re straight shooters with boundless energy and enthusiasm. Get in touch to see why we are different.

how we can help

We know your profession inside out (it’s our profession too). Learn more about our process and what you’ll have access to when you partner with us.

For Candidates

Ready for something new?

Searching for a new job is a lot like dating. That perfect connection between an organisation and talent doesn’t happen when you upload your resume, it happens between people. We take the time to get to know you and what you want so we can match you for keeps with like-minded leaders and organisations. As our candidate, you’ll get access to some of the best HR roles in Melbourne.

For In-betweeners

Are you in-between gigs?

Prefer something a little more casual? Not interested in a long-term commitment. A contract or a temp role might be the solution for you. We know permanent work doesn’t suit everyone. If this sounds like your kind of thing, we’d love to hear from you.

For Employers

Ready to hire?

Unlike most recruitment firms, we don’t rely on a ‘post and pray’ approach. Connecting like-minded people and organisations is both an art and science and we use our expertise, tools and data to identify the type of candidates our clients are specifically looking for. Our market intelligence capability allows us to source more effectively resulting in faster, better outcomes. 

Services:

  • Contracting & immediate needs
  • Fixed-term contracts 
  • Permanent direct hire
  • Real-time market data and talent insights
  • Salary benchmarking
