Over 50 Years of IT Recruitment Experience

In 2023 Paxus celebrated 50 years of IT Recruitment experience. Throughout the year, we took the time to reflect and look forward. A lot has changed in what is now more than 50 years, and no industry has been more integral to innovation than digital + tech. In fact, most roles that we fill nowadays 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 over five decades to develop best-practice, deep expertise, and trusted relationships that we look forward to continuing.

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