Managing Director
Careers ConnectionsPaul Van Der Leeden

Not everyone gets to show up to a job every day where they help people achieve their dreams - Paul is one of the lucky ones. From his staff to his clients, he works hard to ensure the people around him are always reaching their potential.

When he decided to branch off from his IT recruitment role and start Careers Connections Paul knew he wanted to spearhead a company that could really make a difference for clients and candidates - a business that people could believe in. Fast forward 25 years and Paul has done just that.

Before taking that big plunge, Paul commenced his career in the IT industry when he identified a niche for a specialist recruitment company seeking out IT professionals. Prior to that, he was employed in variety of technical and engineering roles.

This repository of industry knowledge combined with refined business acumen has led to the continual growth of the business. This includes national expansion across a number of sectors including IT. Health & Medical, Executive, Accounting and Business Support, Marketing & HR, Engineering and Trades and Services.

Like many of his colleagues, Paul is an avid sports fan. In fact, when he was younger he had dreams of becoming a professional footballer. Nowadays, he's living out his professional dream of running a company that he loves. Paul feels lucky to be a part of a workplace that prides itself on valuing people and relationships.

"The philosophy in the office is: We do what we do because it's the right thing to do," explains Paul. "I have the staff ask themselves: Would your mother be proud of your deals? Are you providing our clients and candidates with the best possible placements?"

As CEO of Careers Connections, Paul is at the front of the pack when it comes to leading new internal development and shifts. From major transitions in the Sydney office to making big picture decisions about the next steps for the company, Paul is ready to see what the future holds.

"I'm excited about this new chapter. We've been in the market for 25 years now and I am eager to see what the next 25 look like."
