Clicks Makes Permanent Recruitment Simple
Eight out of ten employers prefer Clicks for hard-to-fill jobs
Culture is the fabric of every organisation’s DNA. It impacts all aspects of business operations: every success and every failure. Hiring good people is the most impactful way to protect, preserve and improve organisational culture.
Every hire you make has a halo effect. A good hire will elevate their colleagues, strengthen your customer relationships, increase engagement and create space for you to innovate.
Similarly, a bad hire will negatively impact a business far beyond the duties the person was hired to carry out.

How We’ve Helped Our Clients
In the last two years, Clicks has helped over 500 Australian government and blue-chip organisations support their culture through the recruitment of exceptional IT professionals.
Our proprietary HumAIn™ methodology ensures the best results from the widest field of applicants.
Clicks was recently retained for a top 10 Australian University’s $300M Digital Infrastructure and Cloud Enablement plan. Clicks placed four IT executives and six senior technical specialists reporting to the CIO. The CIO advised it’s their first recruitment exercise using a single recruitment provider to build out a new team. They felt it was so successful that they intend on including Clicks in their 10-year strategy and workforce plan.
Clicks recently partnered with an independent non-for-profit organisation which delivers primary health care services to the geographical regions of Northern NSW and mid North Coast. Clicks was engaged on an exclusive basis to source a Director of Information Technology. After successfully doing so despite the challenges of geographic location, Clicks was re-engaged exclusively to build out the IT capability, comprising Senior Digital Project Managers, ICT Coordinators and more.
Clicks was retained by the Executive Director of a major State Government Education Statutory Authority to help restructure its IT team to improve its utilisation of technology. Starting with recruiting the Director – ICT, a top-down approach was taken. Two Senior Managers were placed shortly after, as well as a further seven Managers and Technical specialists. Our client was so impressed that it retained Clicks for its next tranche of IT recruitment needs for a further six roles.
How Do Bad Hires Happen?
Unable to articulate Employer Value Proposition
Hiring managers are untrained or inexperienced interviewers
Under time pressure
Out of date or inaccurate job descriptions
Lack of knowledge in creating inclusive attraction strategies
Poorly written advertisements attracting the wrong applicants
Unconscious bias: seeking to hire like for like
No access to current salary data to ensure appropriate pay and reward
The True Cost of a Bad Hire
Let’s use the example of a $120,000 hire in a team of 6.
- Recruitment and advertising costs, hiring manager’s time to interview and manage the recruitment process: $20,000
- Time and cost to onboard and train: $5,000
- Wages paid for 3 months: $30,000
- Intensive management: the under-performing incumbent plus managing and repairing team morale and stress levels
(15% of manager’s time): $12,000
- Productivity drain: 5 people producing 10% less: $80,000
- Opportunity costs through inability to innovate and grow: ?
- Lost clients: ?
- Diminished customer service: ?
- Reputational damage: ?
- Potential legal fees: ?
The true cost in this example
is at best $147,000,
and far higher at worst.
