Hello, I’m Cheryl McCormack. Thanks for clicking through. Welcome to our agency.

McCormack Employment Services was founded in 2001 with the express aim of providing a genuinely thorough recruitment service to organisations within Sydney who really do value their employees.
These organisations truly understand how important it is, not only to the bottom line but to the overall health of their operation, that the best people are employed be that on a temporary, contract or permanent basis.

Talent management is now a widely used phrase and does encapsulate a necessary process for enterprise success including performance appraisals, career planning, professional development and many other skills enhancement areas. All significant elements but without the right foundations would all be wasted.

The all important foundations are the recruitment and selection process and for optimal success in tenure this needs to be executed with expertise.

At McCormack’s we care about every step of the recruitment process from gaining a thorough understanding of the position and how it will fit into the organisations mission and goals, to culture, sub culture and team dynamics for best fit.

We are one of the very few employment agencies who do actually carry out thorough employment reference checks which are provided in writing to the employer organisation. We test and assess candidate’s computer literacy, their spelling, grammar and visual accuracy aptitude and on request can carry out personality profiling.

In addition we take a more progressive approach with advertising, preferring to cast the net wider than just the usual Seek and My Career, utilising more targeted tools such as Ethical Jobs, Christian Jobs, Catholic Jobs Online along with other senior management tools such as Executive Career.

Ethically and morally we respond to each and every applicant as we believe if they have gone to the trouble of applying, the least we can do is acknowledge their efforts, even if they are not successful in their candidature.

We work quickly and effectively keeping both the employer organisation and the candidate in the communication loop regularly.

As a student of psychology I especially enjoy taking a hands-on role as the lead consultant at McCormack’s.

We watch our overheads and costs along with our carbon footprint so that we can deliver a high standard of professional service at reasonable rates and we love doing it.

I am available and more than happy to personally visit any organisation that may be interested in hearing more about what we offer at McCormack Employment Services. So just pick up the phone or email us and I look forward to meeting you.

Thanks to Cheryl and the team at McCormack’s for yet again sourcing an appropriate applicant and successfully filling an unusual vacancy at our College. We have always relied on McCormack’s for urgent, last minute administration roles and they have been able to fulfil our needs but this latest position required such a variety of specific skills I was not confident we’d find anyone for the job. But McCormack’s found the perfect candidate and we’re very happy once again with the great service they offer. Professional, effective and timely in every way. I would not hesitate to recommend their services.
