Testimonials & Recommendations:

Elaine Smart - Head of Enterprise Transformation, Enterprise Services @ Westpac Group:

"As an Executive recruiting for niche capability in the market with constrained timelines, I have used Simon O'Rourke at TheDriveGroup for the past 4 years.  Simon has been able to identify and locate candidates that are vetted and highly capable for the roles being recruited for.  He is knowledgeable in Technology roles and has been an absolute pleasure to work with.  I would recommend him for anyone looking for PD's, PM's, BA's, Developers and Testers!"​

Paul Hazelhurst - PMO Lead @ Endeavour Group:

“Simon has been invaluable during a very heavy recruiting period with the Technology team of EDG.  Always available at a moment's notice and quick to action expedited roles we require filling.  Simon has taken the time to truly understand our strategy and upcoming requirements as well as the culture and brand we are trying to build out in the market which is seen through the calibre of almost all candidates provided.

It is also refreshing working with Simon in terms of his approach.  You certainly see the effort of pre-screening he does through the fact we are not bombarded with several CVs for roles just the best 1 or 2 candidates Simon feels will fit our requirements and business culture.

It’s been a pleasure working with him and I look forward to continuing in the future.”
