We are 60 passionate people working across APAC that exist in the centre of this ecosystem, and are proud leaders and innovators in our sector.
We’re a little more casual than most because we believe that doing an exceptional job has nothing to do with a fancy suit or a slick sales pitch. We’re not interested in being the biggest or trying to be all things to all people, we know who we are and importantly who we are not. Our motivation comes from a competitive drive simply to be the best and to build something we’re proud to put our names to.
We have even won awards for our specialisation in both Australia and Singapore, winning Seek’s “Most Popular Recruiter” 6 years straight. In May 2015 we also won RCSA’s inaugural “Excellence In Candidate Care” award. In the same month we also won Silver for “Best Candidate Experience” at Human Resource Magazine’s inaugural Asia Recruitment Awards.
As a wholly owned subsidiary of the ASX Listed Rubicor Group (www.rubicor.com.au), Xpand is part of one of APAC’s largest recruitment groups.
