Oliver Smith

Director // 2search

“ I have always had a very keen interest in ‘Recruitment to Recruitment’. The concept initially really intrigued me; that recruitment companies would use other recruitment companies to recruit their staff.. Who would have guessed?!?

‘Oliver is a senior recruitment professional with over 10 years recruitment experience working in both the UK and Australia.

He has a strong track record in building high performing teams and personally delivering on recruitment briefs in a timely and effective manor. Having worked in the recruitment industry in Melbourne since 2008, Oliver knows the Australian market extremely well and is uniquely placed to advise recruiters, Managers, and Directors what their next logical move should be.

Through my management roles in recruitment, I have met and worked with a number Recruitment to Recruitment companies over the years. Their service levels, market knowledge and candidate quality have always varied and more often than not, been less than consistent. I genuinely feel I have a distinct advantage over competitors, as I have always prided myself on my high levels of service, thorough market knowledge, and the consistent quality of candidates I have presented to clients.

My job is to know which boutique agencies are looking to hire a senior recruiter, which global agency is looking for an Associate Director, which mid size firm is looking for a Divisional Manager, or which agencies are setting up new divisions. Having my finger on the pulse and knowing what is happening in the market is essential in order for me to give my candidates a true overview of the recruitment landscape and to give sound advice on their next career move. In order for me to give sound advice, it is essential that I really get to know my candidates (both active and passive) to truly understand their motivations and career drivers.

Running my own Recruitment to Recruitment business is something I am very passionate and excited about, I continue to look forward to connecting with other likeminded and passionate recruitment professionals!’

“Do what you love and you will never work a day again..”
– Confucius

If you are not skipping to work in the morning then you could well be in the wrong role, on the wrong desk or in the wrong business.

The average recruiter spends 10 hours a day recruiting. That is almost 70% of your awake working life. WAY too long to not LOVE where you work.

What candidates say about us

"Coming back to Melbourne from Canada, it was very important to me that I was able to secure a role that provided me with a long term career. Having worked with Oliver previously I knew he would have a great understanding of what would motivate me and the environment I would be happy in. When he presented me with Miller Leith it was clear he really understood their business and spoke with passion about their market reputation and culture. It was the ideal fit and I owe a lot to Oliver for his help. I recommend Oliver to any recruiters looking to advance their careers."

Darryn //

Manager - Sales & Marketing Miller Leith

"I was wanting to crack into the recruitment industry for quite a while, so for me it was important to find someone that had extensive knowledge about the industry and was able to be realistic with where I could be placed. With in one day of meeting Oliver, he had two interviews set up. I landed a role in within 2 weeks in this industry and I'm loving every bit of it. I couldn't recommend Oliver at 2search any higher!"

Adam //

Consultant at ZACK Group

"There are only a small number of recruitment-to-recruitment consultants I would take time to write a recommendation for, and Oliver is definitely in that group. When you want timely communications, spot-on matches and strong industry knowledge, it is important you get the right person on side to provide all these. Oliver brings that to the table and more. Definitely worthy of contact."

Scott //

Client Services Manager NEC Professional Services

"Oliver has a great understanding of his candidate’s requirements and that makes him an excellent rec 2 rec specialist. After relocating to Australia, Oliver was a fountain of knowledge about the local market and what opportunities were available. When meeting Oliver, he paid close attention to what roles I was interested in and he captured the essence of my request in securing me the right role. When Oliver represented me to D&B it was clear he really understood their business and spoke with passion about their reputation and culture. Oliver is extremely enthusiastic about his work and this show’s through his presentation of work. I would highly recommend Oliver to support any client/candidate within the market. Thank you for all your hard work."

Hannah //

Charlie's enthusiasm, professionalism, and drive has been a breath of fresh air in the recruitment world. I felt as though I had a personal team assisting me with finding a new role. I would 100% recommend Charlie and the rest of the 2search team."

Reena //
