Permanent Doctors Specialist
Senior Recruitment Consultant - Permanent DoctorsJonathan Richards

If you're looking for a recruiter that will go above and beyond the call of duty, look no further than Jonathan. He is known for his unrelenting commitment to clients, candidates and colleagues and his large network of contacts is a testament to his ability to create valuable and long-lasting relationships.

While he loves a million things about working with Careers Connections (the people, the excitement and of course, the office location - hello beaches!), his favourite part by far is the commitment to professional development.

"In a lot of bigger recruitment companies you come in, hit your targets and leave," he explains. "While this works for some people, I love working in an organisation that offers you the chance to get involved in projects outside of your standard scope of work while also encouraging you to continue growing within your individual industry."

With 17 years of experience in public service recruitment, Jonathan has had a chance to witness multiple waves of recruitment change. And he prides himself on his ability to adapt to these shifts. He knows that finding different ways to not only move with the times but stay fresh in the market is critical to professional success and personal enjoyment.

His years of experience also translate to a deep understanding of the industry itself  - making up just one of the reasons he is such a valuable asset to the Careers Connections team. As one of the founders of Careers Connections' Health & Medical Division, Jonathan leads a vibrant team of recruiters and he has managed to create a culture where work is a pleasure - not a chore.

When he's not wooing clients or mentoring his team members, you can find Jonathan enjoying the beach with his wife and two adorable children. A Wales native, he is a die-hard Llanelli Scarlets fan and while his dreams of being a professional rugby player are slightly out of reach (he reluctantly admits to being a rubbish Rugby player), he shows his support by never missing a game.

Jonathan believes the key to success in recruitment is being equal parts realistic and ambitious - don't hesitate to take on a new challenge but be honest with yourself and your clients about what they can expect.

Moving forward, Jonathan is excited to continue expanding the locum and permanent recruitment services for Careers Connections while also developing an industry-leading team from both our Sydney and Gold Coast hubs.

If you have any questions about our health and medical recruitment division (or you're just curious about how to pronounce 'Llanelli') reach out to Jonathan today!
