Recruiters adapt to a changing marketplace

Mining clients provided the majority of work for international recruitment firm Michael Page when it entered the Western Australian market in the early 2000s. 

That has changed during the past three years, however, according to the firm’s WA regional director, Brodie McDougall, who says non-mining services such as healthcare and education have dominated the books following the resources downturn.

“We had to be proactive and diversify our client base,” Mr McDougall told Business News.
