Recruiting the best talent often depends on the way a company approaches the hiring process. Some companies chose to manage the process themselves, whilst others undertake to work through a recruitment agent. Often it depends on the level of specialist skill involved and in particular if the role involves information technology.
The world of information technology (IT) has changed considerably since the term was first coined back in 1958 and is now inextricably linked to almost all business operations and all business sectors. This phenomenal growth has broadened the specialist skill sets required and employers often struggle to find the right talent to fill these roles.
After identifying the opportunity, Michael Cant this year founded Binary People. He is looking to revolutionise the industry with use of technology, pioneering a tailored solution to his clients that will provide IT companies with a quicker time to hire and reliability.
“Our motto is to be more of an up-start then a start-up,” Michael said.
“The Digital and IT space is fast moving. Every five years now we are seeing major changes within the industry and with it comes the need for even more specialist skills,” Michael said.
“This is where Binary People excels, by specialising in Digital and IT recruitment solutions.”
Michael is passionate about the start-up revolution hitting Australia and how this will impact the tech industry. When he’s not working hard, you’ll find Michael spending time with his family which includes his Border Collie ‘Daisy’, eating out or watching his other passion, cricket.
Binary People’s head office is located at The Coffs Harbour Innovation Centre at the Southern Cross University Campus. To find out more about Binary People visit: www.binarypeople.com.au
Michael’s Top 5 tips for start-ups and small business:
- Back yourself!
- Learn Learn Learn – Don’t know something, read about, ask questions about it, seek out industry experts.
- Be humble – No one likes a cocky business person telling them how good they are!
- Be prepared to put in the hard yards to make it
- Make sure you reward yourself and take time out for yourself.
Michael is grateful for the support of his mentors in helping get the business to this stage.
