Our Geelong Recruitment Team

Jamie Croft


I established Direct Recruitment in Geelong over 20 years ago and am so proud of our record in serving the Geelong community over that period. We have a great team at Direct.

Even in COVID times, the Geelong region is growing and sees exciting times ahead. Our job is to support that growth by putting the right people in the right jobs.

When I’m not doing that I enjoy the coastal lifestyle at Aireys Inlet whacking a few balls around Anglesea Golf Course or just relaxing along the beaches. The Geelong region is a great place for work and play. Come and experience The Direct Recruitment Difference.

Simon Heffernan

Branch Manager

My passion for recruiting now spans 19 years. I get excited about the opportunity of changing people’s lives by offering new and rewarding work challenges. The key to success in recruitment I believe is about building key partnerships with my clients and valuing the relationships with my candidates.

As Branch Manager I have led the Direct Recruitment Geelong office for over 12 years and built a strong reputable brand along with my quality recruitment team. I am proud of the company I work for and the values we drive as an organisation.

Away from the office I enjoy spending time with family (love watching my kids play sports), staying fit, golfing, watching AFL (Mighty Cats) and camping.
