Celebrating 50 Years of IT Recruitment Experience
Paxus 50 Years Celebration Logo

In 2023, Paxus is celebrating 50 years of IT Recruitment experience. Because this is no ordinary year, we’re taking the time to both reflect and look forward throughout this year. A lot has changed in 50 years, and no industry has been more integral to innovation than digital + tech. In fact, that roles that we fill this year did not exist half a century ago.

Through all those changes, our experience and breadth of knowledge across sectors and specialisations has continued to develop. We’ve been finessing our craft this whole time, utilising five decades to develop best-practice, deep expertise, and trusted relationships that we look forward to continuing into the next 50 years.

That’s why we’re considered Australia’s destination for digital + tech talent.
