Hi! I'm Deb!
Your Hiring Strategist and external Recruitment Partner
Whatever brings you here it's great to meet you!
I am the owner and founder of Phlox Consulting Pty Ltd. After 17 year of working in agency recruitment it was time to do something fresh and new. Working for someone else I was governed by what fees I could charge and what services I could deliver.
It was evident that the companies that needed recruitment help the most were the startups, the up and comers, the entrepreneur who's business was flying but had no recruitment experience, those awesome little gems who were hidden in the corner because of an unknown employer brand.
These are exactly who I wanted to help.
The size of your business or revenue should not determine the quality of people you hire. And I am here to prove that to the world.
With the right strategy, the right messaging, the right process and the right skills, you can hire your dream team today.
The success of every business is directly linked to the people they hire.
"Your hiring today affects your business tomorrow"
So, if you have big ambitions and you are ready to employ a team that will align with your vision, values, ethics and goals you are in the right place.
At Phlox, we specialise in empowering growing and scaling businesses to build their dream teams with confidence and ease.
We work with business owners and leaders who are seeking skilled staff without the burden of hefty recruitment agency fees. Our services are tailored to support businesses at various stages of growth, ensuring they have the right strategies and tools to hire effectively.
Avoid those costly hiring mistakes and hire the right people today.
Hiring mistakes are costly and we're talking:

INTRODUCING THE 'COG'NITIVE HIRING METHOD
The 'Cog'nitive Hiring Method - The Phlox signature solution to achieving Hiring Mastery
The 'Cog'nitive Method is based on what we believe to be the 4 key principals required in any successful hiring process or strategy:
Just like any cog mechanism, when 1 cog stops working,
they all fail to function at full capacity.
