  • Is it worth going to a recruitment agency?

    Yes. Going through a recruitment or employment agency can save you time and reduce the stress of searching and applying for jobs. Recruiters in Sydney, like IPA will do the hard work of finding job openings that match your skills and goals.

    They can also help with the paperwork and will often be able to streamline the application process if you’ve been pre-screened.
  • Can an agency be a sponsor?

    No. A recruitment company can generally not be a visa sponsor to an overseas worker, as the agency is not the employer. Job agencies are the intermediary between an employee and an employer. An agency may however be able to help place a suitable visa-holder with a business that’s willing to act as sponsor.
  • Can a recruitment agency like IPA charge candidates?

    Employment agencies can charge candidates a fee for their service, but in general, the best job agencies, especially those in Sydney, do not. Candidates seeking a job through IPA don’t pay anything to us. Instead, we receive our income from the employer when we fill their vacancy.

    Even then, as a social enterprise, we direct all our profits to supporting the community.
  • How does IPA find candidates in Sydney?

    We find skilled talent in a number of ways. Often we’ll tap into our own extensive database of candidates looking to progress up the career ladder. This starts with a job-seeker chatting with our career experts or directly submitting a current CV.

    Candidates can also search our regularly updated list of permanent, temp and contract jobs available in Sydney and across NSW.
  • Is it easy to get jobs in Sydney?

    Right now, Australia’s employment numbers are some of the strongest in the OECD, and at the end of 2023, New South Wales recorded the lowest unemployment rate of all Australian states and territories^. Like anywhere though, the demand for some jobs will be higher than others, so the ease of finding work will come down to the type of work you’re seeking. However, if you’re willing to be a bit flexible around location, role, income, or upskilling, then finding work in Sydney can be easier than elsewhere.
