About Us

As Aristotle once said, the whole is greater than the sum of the parts and Mother Nature certainly agreed with this by creating the platypus, a complete mix up of different animals that on paper shouldn’t work, but in reality, here is an animal as effective in its hunting ability as the great white shark.

Platypus Recruitment believes the same to apply to any business - it’s the people working together as a whole that adds the value. Our goal is to find those important individuals to enhance your team.

With over 20 years of experience in the recruitment sector, it is our aim to continue building long lasting relationships with our clients and candidates, this being through the timely fulfilment of the task at hand.
