On Friday 26 June 2020, the annual Australian RCSA Industry Awards were held. The prestigious RCSA Industry Awards provide the opportunity to recognise the best of the best in the recruitment, staffing and workforce solutions sector in Australia and New Zealand.
Legal Specialist Recruiter, Founder and CEO of Elias Recruitment, Jason Elias was announced as the winner of the Recruitment Leader of the Year Award.
Due to Covid Restrictions, the event which is usually a glamorous Gala Dinner was held using a live stream via the RCSA Facebook page.
“It was a wonderful surprise, especially given the quality of the other finalists and the record number of applications this year”, said Elias.
“Since starting Elias Recruitment 20 years ago, I have always maintained a philosophy of collaboration over competition. Our aim is to get the best match for the candidate and client, and if that means working with other agencies and splitting the placement fee, so be it. A happy candidate and happy client will lead to greater long-term success.
To this end I owe a lot to NPAworldwide- the world’s largest recruitment network. NPA has taught me the value of collaboration and has led to dozens of extra placements. By working with other quality recruiters, we expand our geographic and industry reach. Moreover, we share market knowledge, technical skills, industry insights and comradery. I have had the honour of volunteering on and off in NPA since 2007 and am honoured to be its current global chairman.
