Tech Australia 2018 Wrap Up; Hays Recruiting Experts Worldwide

Hays is proud to have sponsored Tech Australia 2018 as part of London Tech Week. This partnership is a testament to Hays’ commitment to powering the tech ecosystem by sourcing quality talent, both locally and globally.


A big thanks to the Australia-United Kingdom Chamber of Commerce, Austrade and the State Governments of New South Wales, South Australia, Western Australia, Victoria and Trade and Investment Queensland for hosting such a great event. It is great to see that the tech ecosystems in Australia and the UK are working together to foster strong business relationships between the two countries to encourage mutually beneficial relationships for both economies to thrive.


The tech scene in Australia is a massive growth area and given the cultural similarities, represents a great opportunity for UK businesses. The same can be said for Australian businesses looking to expand into the UK, so it is great to see the collaboration between both markets. The Australian tech sector will only continue to grow which is why we have invested heavily in our IT & Digital Technology business across the region.


The Australian tech industry is almost certainly going to evolve as government, education and industry work together to improve the availability of home-grown tech talent  for the local and global market and we look forward to playing a part in bringing the right talent together with organisations.


We understand the challenges in recruiting tech talent which is why we have a dedicated Globalink team based in London to facilitate the movement of tech talent globally to work in Australia or New Zealand. The team works closely with our specialist Hays IT & Digital Technology teams based across all key states in Australia and New Zealand to ensure the market can grow and prosper.


We are proud to work with some of the most innovative companies in Australia, from building winning teams in tech start-ups to supporting global enterprises with large scale digital transformations and everything in between. Our team of consultants are experienced, knowledgeable and passionate. We recruit both permanent and contract roles across the entire digital landscape from design and development to deployment, analytics and security.
