2018 Finalist - Hunter Labour Hire

Irish Australian Business Awards Peoples Choice 2018

Hunter Labour Hire was established in January 2015 since then I have grown the company to now having approximately 100 employees and an annual turnover of $7million. The journey to get here has been a bit of a roller coaster ride but I have learned so much along the way, overcome many challenges and risks to the businesses and thankfully I am very happy to say we’ve come out the other side now unscathed and successful.

Being a female director of a business in the construction industry I believe I am in the minority. This is one of the main reasons I recently joined the IACC’s Emerald Roundtable to gain support from other women in leadership. I would hope that more female winners of the awards would encourage more women in business to excel further in their careers and potentially win an award down the line themselves.

I believe that winning an award from the IACC will help me to continue to grow my business and attract construction talent from both Ireland and Australia. The PR related to the process will be great for building both my own network and the Hunter Labour Hire brand. It will also add more credibility my business and highlight us as leaders in a very competitive industry.

I think I would be a worthy winner of an Irish Australian Business award as I have successfully built a reputable labour hire company that uses innovation and quality control measures to ensure we consistently improve our services.

Due to the nature of the industry a lot of our work is casual, and this is well suited to backpackers visiting Australia on Working Holiday Visas looking to finance their travels. We have a high percentage of workers from Ireland, the UK and other parts of Europe and as I was once in the same shoes as these people I can directly relate to how expensive and daunting Sydney can be when you first arrive. Being in a position to now offer these people employment is something I am proud of and consider another viable reason why I would be worthy of an award.

Finally, I think the fact that Hunter Labour Hire has the highest rating and the highest number of reviews on Google for labour hire companies in Sydney is reflective of the fact that we are a company that people love working for and I think this is well worth the recognition of an Irish Australian Business Award.
