The Stopgap Way

We started in the UK in 1993 and have been in Australia since 2000.  Independently owned and founded by ex-marketer Claire Owen, we have always pursued our two clearest goals with an unwavering focus and passion. We work hard to:

  • Challenge the recruitment industry's reputation for bad practice and poor service
  • Run and grow a company that cares about and truly looks after its staff

That’s how we’ve grown to be successful (you can see our client list here), and that’s what defines ‘The Stopgap Way’

  • Non-commissioned, collaborative and experienced marketing consultants - you can meet the team here
  • Specialist sector teams with focused areas of expertise. Check out the sectors we cover here
  • Providing a service that’s highly recommended by clients and candidates alike. You can read our testimonials here
  • As a client you won’t be inundated with CVs – we’re fussy on your behalf, searching for the right person for your role and culture. Find out more about how we work with clients here
  • Maintaining a unique and positive culture that promotes low staff turnover, based on our guiding principles of Integrity, Agility, Passion, Daring and Collaboration
  • Real commitment to coaching and supporting our candidates before, during and after placements
