Transformational not Transactional! Posted at 0:00, Tue, 6 September 2016 in Industry Insights

Whilst the majority of the talent acquisition industry is focused on transactional behaviours, old-school management styles and the numbers game, The MitchelLake Group draws its attention to the market and our customers in order to be transformational!. Continue reading below…

Centred on working with startups, traditional enterprise and digital transformation groups, we provide innovative talent acquisition solutions with two basic premises: adding value and facilitating partnerships.

MitchelLake ultimately exists to help great ideas succeed. We help innovative businesses scale, and businesses of scale innovate! This is our mission. We are building an enduring global brand that is recognised as the global leader of talent for innovation.

MitchelLake provides flexible and transparent talent acquisition solutions from retained executive search, through to embedded, performance-driven project solutions. We’ve built a global network of respected technology leaders by being part of the industry, not merely as recruiters. We are active investors, we run global events, and we are commentators on important trends across the landscape.

Perhaps you work for a talent acquisition consultancy that is more of a transactional player. Perhaps your agency lacks a purpose outside of simply getting a deal done at all costs. Perhaps your employer’s values aren’t the same that you share.

Our core values define in simple terms who we are and how we engage with our customers, clients and colleagues.

Partnership – To our customers, be they companies or candidates, we promise to be transformational, not transactional.
Mindfulness – We always assume positive intent, we welcome and respect diversity in our market, our people, opinions and perspectives.
Curiosity – The relentless pursuit of knowledge builds our capability, expertise and influence.

With a global network of offices in Sydney, Melbourne, Singapore, San Francisco and satellite offices on the Gold Coast and in London, we are proud of our growth and success, particularly as the only Australian-owned emerging tech & innovation focused talent acquisition agency with a substantial presence and office in San Francisco. We are honoured to be flying the Aussie flag in Silicon Valley which ultimately drives greater connections and opportunities with the innovative brands that lead the digital marketplace.

We are currently looking to build the team further across APAC and add some more Lakers that have a passion for the Technology / Digital arena and a thirst to make a difference. Whether you are new to the recruitment industry, or an established senior consultant or leader, if you’re interested in an informal chat about your career, our culture and the opportunity that MitchelLake could present, then we would love to have a chat.
