🚀 How We Started

We were frustrated by recruitment agencies' inconsistent, slow, and - way too often - dishonest, overly expensive approach. Sending irrelevant profiles and hoping for the best. To all agencies out there: “Network” isn't a differentiating factor anymore - start to innovate!!

Three years later, what sets us apart is:

  • Speed through automation (shortlist of three within 7 days, end-to-end of 15 days)
  • Recruiting through storytelling (our secret sauce)
  • Delivering valuable CX and data-driven experiences (it’s about people and relationships)

Our teams in Australia, the US, the UK, South Africa, Sri Lanka and Thailand focus on startup recruitment with our clients being market leaders in their area.


Head Office: Sydney

With people in: Sydney, Colombo, Bangkok, Johannesburg, New York, Phoenix, Dallas, London and Austin

🍮 The Proof is in the Pudding

Check out our glowing reviews ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

"Incredibly dedicated team willing to advocate for you!"


"Beware: Redbeard will get other traditional recruiters run out of candidates"

"[To companies] You owe it to yourself to talk to RedBeard because you don't realise there's an entirely different approach out there" - Jane Oxley, CMO, Smokeball [Read more]

"RedBeard Talent saved us at least £15,000 (USD$20.5k, AUD$28.5k) compared to traditional agencies. And that's a low estimate" - Archie Winesett, SVP Sales, Triptease [Read more]

Why This Role? Why Now?

We attract higher quality talent, 50% faster through automation and storytelling vs traditional recruitment agencies and we need more hands-on deck.

Did you know:

  • Robert Half's research has found that a whopping 62% of job seekers lose interest in a job if the hiring process is lengthy. That number rises to 77% if there is no status update within three weeks.
  • 69% of the Employers report having difficulty in filling a role and put it down to Talent shortage (Source: TalentLyft).
  • According to LinkedIn, only 30% of companies are able to fill a vacant role within 30 days. The other 70% of companies take anywhere between 1 - 4 months to process a new hire.

Meet your Hiring Manager, Shweta (Co-Founder)

Hi! I am Shweta. Outside of work, my 6-month-old pup keeps me busy. I enjoy meeting and talking to people from different walks of life (probably why I enjoy my job as a Recruiter), working upon my self-growth with purpose, and invest in hobbies such as vocal training in music, cooking different cuisines, and mindfulness practices. I have recently moved close to the beaches and mountains which has been a BIG change given I have always been a city girl! Giving back to the community and society at large is a HUGE driver. I am also inspired to be the change I want to see. Professionally, I have worked across industries such as Media, Retail, Travel, and Recruitment (entrepreneurship) and geographies including India and Australia. Disrupting the world of recruitment and helping candidates find their dream job makes me jump out of bed every day!
