A Day in the Life


A day in the life of a top recruiter

Meet Sumi, she works in the Melbourne team as a high performing recruitment consultant. We sat down with her to learn about what a day in her life looks like.

Did you always want to be a recruiter?

Sumi: No! I came from a hospitality background, but I always loved customer service and thought I would give this a go. I never considered recruitment as a career, but once I got here I saw a lot of opportunities for growth and learning which I had not considered before.

What’s the first thing you do when you get to the office?

Sumi: Coffee first! Always. Cannot function.

I generally start around 8.30am, already well caffeinated. I say hello to colleagues and get settled in. Ideally I have already made my list of things to do from the night before, but often I’ve been busy so first I’ll log on and check emails and compile my list of what needs to be delivered on that day.

What do you enjoy most about the job?

Working as a match maker! I’m trying to match the perfect client and job to the perfect candidate. When I match them up it makes me feel so happy, like I’m fulfilling their dream. In a lot of jobs you don’t know how well you do, but in this job you get a commission when you make the placement so it’s like an instant reward for getting a job well done. But mostly it makes my heart sing when I get to call a candidate and hand them their dream job.

What is something people would not know about being a recruiter?

That human interaction is so important. Either checking in with colleagues or giving a client a call to see what is on their books. We work closely with all kinds of people to solve problems through human interaction.

What is a great thing about working for Peoplebank?

Peoplebank has a very flexible policy so timing is not as important as output, neither is where you do your work from, so we take breaks when we need to. We work hard, we play hard. The team members are always there to help each other and collaboration is so important. When I started, the team welcomed me with open arms and a lot of support.

And finally, what is your best tip for a new starter?

Take all the support you can get, and don’t worry if you don’t make a placement straight away. The first months are all about learning how to do a great job, you will get there!

Thanks Sumi!

Perks & Benefits

Key benefits at Peoplebank include:

  • A flexible workplace
  • Employee benefits programs (including discounts, salary sacrificing options, novated leasing options)
  • EAP (employee assistance program) counseling for yourself and direct family members when needed

Peoplebank have partnered with Life Without Barriers (LWB), a leading social purpose organisation working in more than 300 communities across Australia to provide diversity candidates initially as part of the Recruitment Services Panel to the ATO initially and now for a growing number of our other clients.

LWB services currently support just over 11,500 clients in the areas of disability services, out-of-home-care, aged care, mental health, and support for refugee and asylum seekers, homelessness, and to youth involved with the justice system. As one of the largest providers of social services in Australia, LWB has a reputation for supporting clients with complex needs and delivering in challenging and new environments. This includes work with individuals, carers and community to ensure the best care and support are developed.

Across Australia, LWB runs extensive services with large networks for people with a disability. LWB are able to leverage their own client sets who are seeking employment opportunities as well as using their strong brand to reach out more broadly in the community. The nature of disability service delivery requires a high level of collaboration and communication with a well-established network of providers in a person with a disability’s life including employment providers, training organisations, housing providers, health and other service providers. This includes working in partnership with the community, elders, government and private sector to improve the lives of the people they support.

LWB can use its own network (and clients) and cross-agency connections to develop, test and implement different sourcing strategies for employment candidates – much in the same way LWB staff create and source a holistic response to clients’ needs now. LWB’s databases allow targeting of different skills based on ability to work, support needs, etc.

In 2017, LWB developed a number of new services designed for the NDIS landscape which specifically target improving economic participation for its clients. These new services, called “Breakthrough” are currently being tested in the Illawarra region, Adelaide and Queensland.

We have also helped other clients, including the ATO, in achieving their neurodiversity targets. In the last twelve months we have placed over 50 autistic candidates into their security and testing programs. We partner with the Dandelion program and Life without Barriers to place as many disabled candidates into suitable IT positions as we can.

Gender Equality

Peoplebank have been recognized by WGEA as an Employer of Choice for Gender Equality in 2019 and for 7 consecutive years prior. We were one of only 140 participants to receive the title and the only recruitment firm.


At Peoplebank, we are able to provide our employees an inclusive environment with a comprehensive flexibility policy, equal pay, and a commitment to reducing and eliminating unconscious bias in the Peoplebank hiring process.

Peter Acheson, CEO of Chandler Macleod Group & Peoplebank comments, “We found our gender-diverse business units are more highly engaged, deliver improved financial performance and exhibit strong team cultures.”


Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islanders

When Peoplebank merged with Chandler Macleod under Chandler Macleod Group, they gained a great ability to improve Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander diversity in organisations. If you identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander or have a keen interest in improving the outcomes of this group we strongly urge you to apply.

Chandler Macleod Group are the only national recruitment provider with a Reconciliation Action Plan that covers white and blue collar recruitment and are uniquely committed within the sector to providing employment opportunities for Indigenous Australians. Our Indigenous Strategy Consultant Kyra Bonney is a pioneer in the field of Indigenous Recruitment outcomes and supports the wider group in strategy and client relations.
