Motion Recruitment


Sydney-born founders Brian Hannaford and Christian Green were both veteran IT recruiters when they decided to join forces and establish Motion Recruitment in June of 2014. Their decades of combined experience in the niche industry and their frustration with the overcomplicated ways in which firms were trying to match talent and companies gave them the confidence to build a company with a simpler vision: delivering a world-class IT recruitment service without the nonsense.

Clearly, their confidence was founded. In just a few years they've built one of Sydney's most trusted and fastest-growing boutique IT recruitment firms, leading a team of vibrant, passionate and informed recruiters. While Motion have needed to relocate their Surry Hills headquarters twice already - to cater to a growing team of likeminded recruiters - the values that underpin everything we do remain the same:

  • Integrity
  • Hardwork
  • Passion
  • Approachability

Our success can be attributed to more than just solid company culture, though. At Motion Recruitment, our specialised experience gives us an innate understanding of the evolving IT landscape, a nuanced technical knowledge of systems and requirements, an ability to place jobs across all verticals, businesses and fields, and a unique outlook on less tangible qualities, like team fit and company values.

Today, we're proud to do more than just source candidates for permanent and contract IT jobs. We also offer more flexible and sophisticated recruitment services, such as in-house recruitment team members, preferred partner relationships and consultancy advice on matters like sponsorship requirements, market rates and salary expectations.
