JAMIE CROFT

Director

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 love getting down to our house on the coast and 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.

ADRIAN HENRY

Business Development Manager

Born and bred in Geelong with experience in many different industries including Hospitality, Real Estate, Finance, Sales, and Management, I love what Geelong has to offer.

When looking for work,  Direct Recruitment were the only agency who kept me informed as to the availability of roles and gave me progress updates on applications I had made.  I was so impressed, I joined the company as the Business Development Manager in 2019.

I am process driven, like everything to be in its place and in a methodical order.  Outside of work I enjoy waterskiing, snowboarding, trail bike riding and spending quality time with my partner and family.
