“People are our business, it’s why we get up each day, it’s why we come to work, and that’s why we want to be here”

Melita Justic, Senior Consultant – Contracting


I’ve been working with Synergy for just over 12 months now and I’ve had 30 years’ experience inside recruitment.

For me to find the best fit for my clients, is to listen to them.

It’s one of the most exciting parts about working with our clientele. It’s a matter of listening to their business requirements, their challenges, their pain points, then making sure we find the best solution. Sometimes it can be a challenge, but we have lots of fun. Most importantly, it’s always to find the best outcome for them.

We have a very strong local network. We know the Canberra marketplace, which is the foundational knowledge needed to work with our clientele. We understand the local community, we understand the nuances of working with federal government.

Our role is to guide job seekers and give them advice about what is out there, the programmes of work, and the projects that are ongoing. We are very good at matching skillsets and candidates to find solutions for businesses.

Part of being a contractor in the Canberra marketplace is to have longevity. Employers want to know that they’re going to have someone that wants to turn up and be involved in their programmes of work. So, at Synergy, we make sure the job is going to be exciting for our clients and they’re going to enjoy it.

For me, it’s a matter of finding people that have the same passion that we have. Those that have a great way of engaging with clients, understanding our business needs and technical solutions, and can take our clients on both a business and a technical journey.

We look for those who can deliver, who can make the employer feel that their work is valued, and who’s going to take that business to the next step.

Why is it an advantage to work with Synergy Contracting &Recruitment?

For us, it’s personal, it’s professional, it’s preeminent. That’s our motto but that’s also who we are. We take great personal pride in how we address and work with our clients, we ensure we treat the client with Synergy’s personal touch. It’s all about making sure that someone succeeds, we take great delight when someone wins a new opportunity.

For me, Synergy’s motto ‘Its personal’ is how we conduct business, how we engage and care for our clients and each other. People are our business, it’s why we get up each day, it’s why we come to work, and that’s why we want to be here. We treat each other with care and respect, that’s what sets us apart, it’s a wonderful place to be.
