We are different


Saltworth® is solving the disconnect between IT recruitment agencies and, well… everyone else! 


Yes, we consistently place technology people into salaried and contract positions. But, we are different. For starters, we do not “carry” employed Recruitment Consultants. 

Saltworth® facilitates a shared platform enabling experienced IT Recruiters to break free from Agency-land and set-up their own staffing businesses. In partnership with Saltworth®, each independent business receives the lion’s share of the fees they generate – it’s an 80/20 split. By minimising overheads and not carrying passengers, our clients significantly gain from savings in external spend – compared to conventional recruitment agency costs.


Why have swanky CBD offices? There’s no need.


We operate from mobile offices / WFH and co-working spaces, further minimising overheads and the cost of doing business with us. It’s a slick, well-run and fully compliant staffing operation.

Experienced Independents effectively plug-in to Saltworth so that they can concentrate on what they know best, the IT marketplace.


As a collaborative of business owners and career recruiters, we have seen a lot. And we consistently deliver:


  • We prioritise hiring activities for every client, every time.
  • We actively promote and manage the careers of high-performance IT individuals, spanning many years.
  • We provide access to prime tech-movers before they become available on the open market.
