Trailblazing Aged Care Recruitment for 15 Remarkable Years

We’re taking a moment to reflect on our journey as we mark a significant milestone at P.J. Recruitment and Executive Search, celebrating 15 years of incredible executive search and recruitment within the aged care sector. The evolution of our brand, our culture and strategic foresight and the profound impact we’ve made along the way is well worth mentioning. Our success story is not just about the numbers; it’s about the lives we’ve touched, the organisations we’ve helped transform and the deep connections we’ve fostered with candidates, clients and consultants. More importantly, the older Australians whose lives are impacted positively by the managers and leaders we’ve placed.

A Legacy Built on Trust and Expertise

From our inception, we understood that the foundation of any successful recruitment agency, especially in a sector as nuanced and impactful as aged care, must be built on trust, expertise and strong relationships. Over the past decade and a half, we’ve dedicated ourselves to not just meeting, but exceeding these principles, establishing P.J. Recruitment and Executive Search as a beacon of reliability, knowledge and expertise in aged care recruitment and executive search.

Our journey began with a clear vision and approach: to pioneer aged care recruitment by creating a vast network of contacts and connections, using appropriate data and technologies, screening techniques and human relationships in all we do. Adopting this approach from the get go, has empowered us to finesse our recruitment strategies so they continue to work, over many years, across the Australian aged care sector. This has resulted in successfully matching people with jobs where the culture, organisation and business needs fulfill their personal and professional career aspirations. This vision has guided us through countless challenges and achievements, propelling us towards becoming industry leaders in what we do. Our advice is often sought, not just for recruitment.

The Power of a Network

A pivotal aspect of our success has been our unwavering commitment to building and nurturing a robust network. This network, comprising aged care professionals, organisations, Boards, and industry experts, has been instrumental in our ability to match the right talent with the right opportunities, time and time again. Our deep-rooted connections have enabled us to access a large pool of talent, providing our clients with candidates that not only meet their immediate needs but also align with their long-term vision, strategy and aspirations.

Brand and Reputation: Our Pillars of Strength

Our brand and reputation stand as testaments to the quality and consistency of our service. We’ve worked tirelessly to position P.J. Recruitment and Executive Search as a synonym for excellence in aged care recruitment. The trust we’ve built over the years isn’t just based on successful placements; it’s the result of our holistic approach to recruitment, our ethical practices, and our genuine commitment to the welfare of the aged care sector.

One of the unique strengths of P.J. Recruitment and Executive Search is the personal brands of our team members. Each member brings their own wealth of knowledge, passion, and expertise to the table, enriching our collective ability to make a significant impact. This diversity of skills and perspectives allows us to approach challenges creatively and find solutions that others might overlook in order to influence key decision makers and job seekers.

Our Founder’s Vision: PJ’s Touch

PJ, with over 15 years of experience, stands at the forefront of our agency’s success. People seek out her advice and counsel. Her authentic, supportive, and future-focused approach is not just about filling positions; it’s about empowering individuals and organisations to achieve their best. PJ’s vision has always been clear: that older Australians in residential care and home care services are living well because highly qualified executives and managers have been expertly matched to an organisation’s needs and culture, then recruited into the right roles. We don’t ‘tick and flick’, it’s a superb matchmaking ability that allows us, nine times out of ten, to get it right. PJ uses her success to help others achieve theirs.

Influencing Through Knowledge

Our profound influence on the aged care sector can largely be attributed to the depth of our knowledge. We don’t just understand the recruitment process; we grasp the intricacies of the aged care sector. This expertise allows us to anticipate trends, understand the evolving needs of both organisations and professionals, and mitigate risks that could compromise the quality of placements. It’s this level of insight that sets us apart and enables us to lead aged care recruitment with confidence.

Mitigating Risks in Recruitment

In the recruitment process, especially within aged care, mitigating risk is paramount. The decisions we make have real-world implications for the quality of care provided to some of the most vulnerable members of our community. Recognising this responsibility, we’ve honed our processes to ensure that every placement not only meets but enhances the standards of care. Our comprehensive screening, continuous monitoring, and feedback mechanisms are designed to safeguard against potential mismatches and ensure that our placements are a source of stability and growth.

Looking Ahead: The Future of Aged Care Recruitment

As we celebrate this 15-year milestone, we’re not just looking back at our achievements; we’re looking forward to the future. The aged care sector continues to evolve, and with it, the challenges and opportunities for recruitment. We’re committed to staying at the forefront of these changes, leveraging technology, expanding our networks, and deepening our knowledge to continue providing unparalleled recruitment services.

Our vision for the future is clear: to remain the trusted partner for aged care recruitment, facilitating placements that enrich the lives of both care recipients and professionals. We’re excited about the possibilities that lie ahead and are grateful for the trust and support we’ve received from our clients, candidates, and the broader aged care community.


The past 15 years have been a journey of growth, challenges, and countless rewards. As we celebrate this milestone, we’re reminded of the impact that dedicated, compassionate recruitment can have on the aged care sector. Our commitment to excellence, trust, and innovation remains unwavering, and we look forward to continuing our journey, trailblazing the future of aged care recruitment.

Thank you to everyone who has been a part of our story. Here’s to the next 15 years and beyond
