Established in Canberra in 2006, Whizdom started as a specialist ICT recruitment firm providing contractors and permanent placements to government and private clients nationally. The word Whizdom came about by being primarily focused on assisting computer whizzers into work and careers, and secondly a play on the word wisdom which reflects our strong commitment to our candidates and clients in providing reliable, independent advice.
We pride ourselves on educating Contractors and workers in best practice, compliance and advancement in their careers while providing our clients with valuable insights into labour markets and staffing trends to assist them in planning resources for current and future objectives. Today we are far more than a Technology provider, we have expanded into other professional staffing markets and want to be at the forefront of emerging skills.
We promote a family first culture and provide flexible working conditions for our employees through our work from anywhere policy. We ensure all our workers are valued and supported through their engagements by providing a dedicated Candidate Care Manager to help support Account Managers.
