Where I work...

Sydney, New South Wales
Germany: Berlin; Australia: Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane; United States: San Francisco
I have been remote recruiting across Australia for the past 7 years and now do remote recruiting Internationally for clients in Silicon Valley and Berlin, sourcing IT candidates from around the world to enable them to attract the best talent for their team.

Diane was fantastic to work with, she was clear about the steps, her cost estimates were right and the speed in which we found a candidate was also spot on (it was fast). I would definitely work with Diane with future recruiting needs, in fact I've recommended her to so many others that I may find it difficult to get her time again :)

Diane clearly has the requisite expertise in the IT space which is what we were looking for when we engaged her via RL. She drove the process, questioned our assumptions and past strategies and, most importantly, delivered.

Diane represents the best of the new breed of 21st century recruiters -- someone who values talent, solutions, people and collaboration over CVs and ticking skills boxes. She's friendly, engaging, and genuine and someone I trust to assist in the growth of my company, Zen Ex Machina, as well as my own personal career.

I recently had the pleasure of working with Diane to fill a niche IT role within our Product team. Diane has great insight into the IT candidate market and was able to quickly present a number of great candidates for us to interview. Diane's level of communication throughout the process hit the right level - I felt up to date but not inundated - a real skill I think for recruiters in today's busy environment. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend Diane and Recruitloop to other HR professionals.

Kerrie Brown People & Culture Manager, Nimble, LinkedIn profile

Diane stands out from other recruiters. She has great knowledge of skills and disciplines that are often misunderstood, and has a knack for untangling ambiguity on both sides of the fence. She's also really straight-forward, approachable and a refreshingly genuine person! As a candidate, I was always clear on where we were up to in the process and I knew Diane could be relied upon if needed.

Jonny Schneider Consultant, ThoughtWorks, LinkedIn profile

Diane's help was instrumental in expediting and closing the deal on a new opportunity. Her help was invaluable in getting up to speed with the project and the people involved.
