Adsearch Pty Ltd is a family owned business, founded in 1998 by Steve and Michelle Laney. Based in Brisbane, with shared office arrangements throughout Australia, we base our highly focused recruitment business on three simple yet powerful objectives
To provide a highly effective service for clients seeking an experienced Search consultant to source candidates for difficult-to-fill vacancies requiring specific technical skills or industry experience
To develop and maintain a business model and working environment entirely structured around the requirements of low-volume, intensive assignments requiring rapid outcomes
To grow the business through commercial relationships with other self-employed recruiters, as opposed to the more traditional model involving the ongoing requirement to attract, train and retain staff
Steve commenced his recruitment career with Price Waterhouse in 1993 and later joined Lyncroft Consulting as General Manager Queensland, before commencing Adsearch in 1998.
With experience now exceeding 500 recruitment assignments Steve has found that he always gravitates towards the toughest assignments, thoroughly motivated by the challenge of finding people for roles where candidates are generally in high demand, or vacancies where specific skills are required and generally in short supply.
Prior to his executive recruitment career Steve worked in the downstream oil industry as State Manager QLD/NT for a subsidiary of the Shell Company of Australia. Due to the autonomous nature of this role, Steve required a sound understanding of all aspects of the business, including Finance, Administration, Information Systems, Sales & Marketing, and Warehousing & Distribution. Steve was also involved with manufacturing and logistics issues, occasionally based in Sydney to assist with production planning.
Michelle initially commenced with Adsearch in a support capacity in 1998. In 2001 she added an account management role to her workload, now working directly with local and International candidates requiring support with the processing of Resident, Business and Visitor Visas.
Michelle previously worked in the banking industry, commencing as a teller and later into a travel consulting role with NAB which ultimately resulted in further education and a formal travel consultant qualification.
