As a business we have identified a gap in the technology recruitment market for a high touch, consultative and specialist service – it is both our opportunity and objective to provide this.
We’re not a transactional recruitment firm. We only work with clients that see the value in the service we provide and are prepared to partner with us in attracting and securing the best talent available. Candidates are the lifeblood of our business, without them there are no clients.
At Emanate Technology we take the time to understand our candidates skills and motivations and coach them throughout the recruitment process to best prepare them for a successful outcome.
We pride ourselves on professionalism and integrity but don’t underestimate the need to have fun in our dealings with clients and candidates – it’s part of our personality.
By being specialised, Emanate Technology offers depth of knowledge and expertise. We don’t just talk about quality service we’re passionate about it, from the start of the recruitment process to the end, no corners are cut. We believe the process is just as important as the outcome. As a client or a candidate of Emanate Technology you will get that extra bit of value that makes a difference to your business or career.
We believe that even in a professional context having fun and a laugh is important. Our clients, candidates and employees will enjoy being associated with Emanate Technology.
Partnerships are built on communication, trust and respect. We value our own time, as well as that of all people we do business with. We do what we say we are going to do and place a large emphasis on communication throughout any recruitment process or contracting assignment. For us, to provide a quality service we choose to work with people that appreciate it.
The backbone of the business.
Founder and Director
After completing his Degree in Human Resources & Industrial Relations from University of Canberra, Joel began his technology recruitment career in Canberra over 17 years ago. From there Joel went on to gain a wealth of experience, building and developing successful and high performing recruitment teams for leading global firms in the United States, South East Asia and Australia.
Joel loves recruitment and is keenly passionate about continually building Emanate Technology’s brand and reputation for quality of delivery and ease of doing business with. His depth of experience, along with his proactive and consultative approach adds great value to clients and candidates, whether it be with advice on how to attract and retain top tier technology talent, or discussions around the market and career opportunities.
Joel understands the nuances of the Canberra recruitment landscape well. The skills and expertise he has developed throughout his career place him in good stead to deal with a challenging market, where demand for high caliber technology resources is often met with candidate shortages.
Mostly relaxed, sometimes frantic, Joel is always up for a chat about anything sport related. His friends and family would consider his loyal support of the Golden State Warriors and the South Sydney Rabbits to be bordering on some sort of weird obsession, but he’s quite ok with that. When not mountain biking on weekends he’s very lucky to be enjoying time with his beautiful wife and two amazing children.
Heath began his IT recruitment career almost 20 years ago, being introduced to an industry where having ‘e-Commerce Consultant’ written on your CV pretty much guaranteed you a job. With a background of recruiting in the areas of SAP and Project Services, he then began his recruitment leadership path directing high performing technology recruitment businesses across Victoria and NSW.
In 2014, Heath and his family made the move to Brisbane and immediately enjoyed all the state has to offer, both from a business and leisure perspective. In 2015, Heath made the move back to hands-on recruitment with a focus on executive level technology and digital appointments, primarily at C-level. Since 2016, he has gone back to where it all began with a focus across all levels of IT, but primarily in project/program services, development and testing.
Heath found that the smaller size of Brisbane, compared to Melbourne and Sydney, provided him with the opportunity to build closer networks based on reputation. His ethical and quality approach means that he is very well suited to the Brisbane market. This lead to him establishing Emanate Technology Queensland, working in partnership with Joel Hides, who Heath has known for the last 15 years. Heath and Joel’s styles are similar in that their recruitment and leadership styles are consultative, rather than transactional, professional but with the lighter side in mind.
Outside of work Heath loves to spend time with his wife and two kids, exploring the beautiful state that they have fallen in love with and are now proud to call home. Most days he is either running or mountain bike riding and dreams to one day see his beloved Melbourne Football Club win at least one flag in his lifetime – 1964 being the last. Most importantly, with a surname like Adcock, he learnt from a young age to never take himself too seriously.
Principal Consultant (Project Services – ACT)
Raised in the National Capital, Sarah completed a Degree in Marketing at the University of Canberra before 10 years of furthering her career and exploring in the UK and other Australian cities, including learning the recruitment trade with a large multinational agency in the UK. Sarah had always considered returning to the recruitment industry providing it was with a firm that was aligned with her ‘non-transactional’ approach.
Having returned to home to raise her family and enjoy the Canberra lifestyle, Sarah joined Emanate Technology because she sees the opportunity that exists to provide the Canberra market with a new standard of consultancy and service. Since working at Emanate Technology Sarah has demonstrated her passion for building long term relationships with both her clients and her candidates. As a candidate or client, you’ll enjoy working with Sarah. Her honest, fun and committed approach regularly sees us receiving positive recommendations from many of the people she deals with.
When she’s not working Sarah likes cooking, spending time with her husband and two children, visiting local parks and having fish and chips at the yacht club on a Sunday afternoon. Sarah also takes her job as Emanates resident food and wine connoisseur very seriously.
Principal Consultant (Applications – ACT)
Tom and his family relocated to Canberra from Ireland via Singapore (short stop of 7 years) early in 2017. He brings with him 12 years Account Management experience within the Engineering and Technology industries.
Specialising in Design, Development and Testing across Bespoke and COTS applications, Tom is very committed to continuously building on his depth of knowledge and candidate pool in that market. He takes a consultative and thorough approach and is known for majestically filling the niche and more difficult client requirements.
Tom’s dry Irish humour fits in perfectly within the Emanate team (and Oz in general). He’s an avid Rugby supporter, loves a hit of golf, and is enjoying the outdoor lifestyle that Canberra offers him and his young family.
Talent Consultant (ACT)
Having recently relocated to Canberra from Sydney, Bec has quickly fallen in love with the ACT lifestyle and, having made it through her first winter, is officially calling it home. Bec began her recruitment career 7 years ago in Sydney, working across a variety of disciplines and industries before trying her hand in the technology space. After an initial steep learning curve, Bec has developed a true passion for IT recruitment and is excited about continuing to build her knowledge and capability across the industry.
Passionate about facilitating an exceptional experience for each and every candidate, Bec enjoys adopting a highly consultative approach to her recruitment process and values transparency in communication. Her straight-forward, service-centric style enables her to build long standing relationships and to effectively guide IT professionals through their job search.
Outside of work, Bec likes to cook (not always very well), explore her new city and hang out with her extremely spoilt puppy (fur child).
Recruitment Operations Manager
Jason brings over 12 years’ experience in the Canberra technology recruitment market to the Emanate Team. He has a strong focus on quality service delivery to Emanate’s clients, contractors and candidates, ensuring service levels are exceeded each and every time.
Relocating from Brisbane with his family in 2005, “The Birdman” is our resident Queenslander in the Canberra office (which explains his quirky sense of humour and liking of XXXX beer). An avid AFL supporter, it’s unfortunate for him it’s been quite a few years since his beloved North Melbourne Kangaroos have tasted success on the final Saturday day in September.
Passionate about customer service, Jason is the go-to person for contractor management including new assignment on-boarding, payroll, and ongoing support throughout the term of your engagement with Emanate Technology.
Jason is highly regarded in the Canberra market due to his strong ethics, honesty and service delivery approach.
