Beginnings

Lynda started The Personnel Connection after noticing a gap in the market for recruitment agents in Sydney. She herself was an immigrant from South Africa who found it difficult to find a job where she felt comfortable, having arrived in Australia without knowing the culture and having no “local” experience. 

In South Africa, Lynda was a recruitment consultant working for agencies in Johannesburg and Cape Town. before joining a large manufacturing company as a senior Human Resource Manager responsible for recruitment. Lynda held this position for nine years before moving to Australia with her family.

Having worked in recruitment since leaving University, Lynda and a partner established The Personnel Connection to provide recruitment services for both permanent and temporary staff. They started with just the Yellow Pages and a telephone in their Hornsby office, where the cold calling started. They soon built up a modest client base, and some of those early clients still support the business today.

Although growth  was slow and her business partner left the business, Lynda persevered and started hiring staff to manage the growth.

The Personnel Connection now services clients in manufacturing, distribution, and services with clients stretching from the Northern Beaches to Blacktown.

Throughout TCP’s existence, the focus has always been on: 

  • matching the best candidates to the job;
  • providing personal attention to clients and candidates; and
  • providing quality service at an affordable price.

Since our company’s inception in 2000, our focus as a business has not changed. We look forward to discussing your business and hiring needs.
