Our story (so far)
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.
Our mission at Whizdom is to work as a collective, connecting highly skilled technology and administrative professional talent with organisations nationally. We will put people before profits, provide a transparent and consistent service offering and continually evolve in line with the fast-paced world of emerging technologies.
Develop a strong understanding of our client's business, listen and understand what our client's need, and pain points are and ensure we supply the high calibre candidates required to deliver their business outcomes.
Ensure we build long lasting relationships with our candidates, so they know we are a partner in their career management. Provide independent advice to structure their working engagements ensuring they have a safe and secure work environment and maintain a healthy work life and family balance.
Create a preferred place of employment for our staff that not only provides a rewarding career and work life balance, but a place that promotes a strong family culture based on collaboration, not competition.
Create an organisation that is valued by its Clients, Candidates and Employees, exceeds their expectations and continues to listen, improve and develops into a strong, trusted and recognised brand nationally.
We regularly host events for Contractors, Staff and Clients within the Whizdom community to get together and catch up in a relaxed environment. Away from the distractions of the office and work-related tasks. From coffee catch ups, to networking nights and our famous Pizza in the park, we want all our clients and contractors to feel connected. Missed one of our events? That's okay!

Whizdom has a good reputation for a reason. Everyone I've dealt with have been great. Keep up the good work!
