OnTalent is a boutique people and organisational performance focused business that specialises in executive recruitment, interim management, development, transition, and outplacement throughout Australia. We believe that when you Connect People with Purpose, results for both the individual and organisation will follow.
To help organisations to meet the dynamic needs of a changing workforce, we’re committed to providing exceptional advice and talent, every time, by thinking differently.
Of course, we are nothing without our talented team of professionals which, collectively, has over 125 years of experience. Every day they deliver amazing outcomes, collaboratively – with quality and consistency of standards as their hallmark. When you work with us you benefit from the collective experience of our team.
Although we are proudly located in Brisbane, we work nationally and undertake global assignments on request and on occasion.
OnTalent was established in 2010 by Varina Nissen and Natasha Olsson-Seeto to deliver a high-touch, high-service recruitment solution in response to a market that had become largely transactional and job-fill-focused during the Queensland mining boom – a long way from the fully engaged category-of-one model that they felt both employers and talent deserved.
In addition to providing executive recruitment services for permanent roles across Australia, OnTalent has a dedicated Executive Contracting and Interim Management division which specialises in providing short and long-term contracting opportunities for our extensive network of candidates. Our methodology for this service is based on our proven executive search framework, and is back by the same research team responsible for identifying the best talent in the market.
In response to client demand, OnTalent transitioned from an executive and specialist professional recruitment business into a full lifecycle careers focused business, by expanding our service model to cover the complete careers spectrum. In advent of these changes, we established OnTalent Career Management Services and recruited the exceptionally talented Deborah Wilson to lead it. Deborah has over 20 years in Executive Leadership positions, and over 12 years in the careers and leadership development sector. As a Strategic Career Partner and Executive Coach, Deborah is incredibly passionate about connecting people with purpose.
