Understanding people is our business

Brunel is a people business which specialises in connecting projects and organisations with highly skilled workers through a flexible suite of recruitment and managed workforce solutions. We take great pride in our ability to supply dynamic people solutions which deliver qualified professionals capable of getting the job done, while honouring the values of our clients and the communities they support.


We are not a generalist recruiter, nor a transactional service provider – Brunel excels at understanding and delivering the technical, specialised and critical skills required for local or multi-jurisdictional projects to achieve and exceed their targets.


Our solutions are comprehensive, yet agile and tailored to the exact needs of each situation.

Focused on partnerships

At Brunel, we believe nurturing meaningful long-term client and candidate partnerships is fundamental to achieving success. We are not a transactional, generalist recruitment agency. Rather, we invest in developing an in-depth understanding of the needs of both the people and organisations we service, so that together we might realise our collective potential.


Whether you need to appoint a handful of key personnel, are seeking an entire workforce or engage us on a delivered outcome basis, Brunel will take the time to understand your business, who you are and how you operate so that we can act, not simply as a service provider, but as an effective strategic partner.

Our heritage guides our future

Brunel is a different type of staffing solutions firm. The brainchild of Dutch engineer Jan Brand, the company was established nearly 50 years ago as an unconventional agency focused primarily on connecting engineers with temporary roles. This niche proved wildly popular, validating Brand’s vision for Brunel – not a generalist recruiter with a surface-level understanding of any and all role types, but one focused on cultivating an in-depth understanding of select professions and using this knowledge to deliver outstanding matches between its candidates and clients.


Today that passion and entrepreneurial spirit lives on, as Brunel continues to innovate, diversify and blaze its own trail, as it supports the personnel needs of businesses throughout the world.

Local knowledge

Operating in Australasia since 1997, Brunel has offices in Perth, Brisbane, Sydney and Port Moresby (PNG). Our local teams have placed tens of thousands of workers throughout Australia over the past two decades and combine their local knowledge and experience with the strength, systems and reach of Brunel’s international network, to deliver outstanding results for our clients.


Brunel is more than just a recruitment agency. Operating as an extension of your business, our solutions are tailored to ensure excellence and efficiency for every job regardless of scope, scale or location.

Global strength

When you engage Brunel, you benefit not only from the support of our local Australian, New Zealand and Papua New Guinean teams, but also from the strength, reach and continuous improvement of an international network which spans over 45 countries, 120 offices and nearly 50 years of successful operation.


Brunel’s worldwide reach and strength means that we are always prepared for whatever our clients may need. Whether you require a single role, an entire workforce or an innovative way to outsource a critical business function, Brunel is capable and ready to deliver the people, skills and outcomes your business needs.

Our global network has local power

Whatever complexities you face, Brunel is here to simplify them.
