Developing Teams. Empowering People.


We consider all applications as an initial expression of interest.

Before progressing further we would provide additional information and discuss your career aspirations. You can then decide whether you would like to proceed.

As we only advertise a small proportion of our opportunities your application will also be considered for other roles we have. All correspondence is in the strictest of confidence and your wishes would always determine what action is taken. You won’t be asked to sign anything and we won’t ask for exclusivity. We only want to empower you to succeed.

Why Adelaide?

LIVABILITY: The Economist’s Global Liveability Index named Adelaide as Australia’s most liveable city and the world’s third most liveable city...


I have just completed my first week with the amazing team at... I wanted to send you a quick email to say thank you for recommending me and for your involvement in the process. I am ecstatic to have been offered this role, but regardless of the outcome, I wanted to thank you for making the whole process so seamless and welcoming. You are a true asset.

Event Coordinator

"Thank you very much Chris. You helped me to secure a position in the civil consulting industry which could not have come at a better time. I can’t thank you enough for the level of timely and much needed support to give a momentum to my career development in the sector I always wanted to be in from my uni days. My life was very difficult as I was dividing my time between the country and the city for work and family commitment, just having a very young family. I am absolutely happy that I made a very right decision to knock on your door seeking help to give a new height to my career. Can I add this if I may, my family is more happy than I am as I landed in a great position with your incredible and prompt career advice followed by a recommendation to the company that I am currently employed by. If there is any one who has extended that kind, timely, friendly and professional career advice, it’s you. It’s just remarkable."

Civil Engineer

"Lovely Kellie,
Thank you so much for your help and efforts. You go over and beyond for all your candidates and I'm so glad I met you in my process of finding my new work home. Please keep in touch and I wish you all the best.
Continue being a superstar!"

Accounts Manager

"I agree that we have the same take on things and you can rest assured that you offer a very different service to that of your competitors in Adelaide."

Architectural Director

"This wasn’t a simple role to fill. We had very specific requirements, and some lateral thinking was required to find the right candidate.Chris’s personal attention and promptness in finding a suitable candidate saved us from potentially a long campaign to fill this vacancy.It was an urgent requirement, quickly fulfilled.I’m very happy with the outcome."

Project Director – Developer

"Over many years I have watched Kellie grow in her professionalism, maturity and expertise with a constant and unwavering commitment to her profession. Kellie has recruited a range of roles for me during my time with Programmed Property Services and I have also had the pleasure of working alongside of her in coaching other executives. Kellie is an authentic, dedicated and passionate recruiter. She is consistent in her drive to find the right person for the job by understanding both the brief, the employer and the candidate at a very deep level setting up countless long term success stories. Some people spend their lives looking for the right job for themselves – not only has Kellie found and grown in hers, but she does so for many many others."


"Working with CTC is unlike working with other recruitment companies. It’s more like a ‘recruitment relationship’ and they’re not willing to jeapordise that by recommending the wrong person. They understand the market I’m in, listen to what I need, and by the calibre of people they have provided, really want my business to succeed."

Environmental Manager – Multi Disciplined Consultancy

"It was a pleasure dealing with Chris at every stage. From our first meeting he understood what I was trying to achieve and set out to achieve it. He managed my expectations through the process and at every stage was calm and professional, communicating good and bad news swiftly, clearly and openly, until ultimately reaching a very successful outcome. I have no hesitation in recommending Chris to candidates and recruiters alike."

Project Manager

"We use Chris to assist us to grow our engineering team due to his:> knowledge of the engineering community and its members > understanding of the companies within the industry, their operations and reputations > networking skills, resulting in significant candidate choice > his rapport with the candidates that utilise his services > astute assessment of a candidate’s abilities and their fit to our organisation > his resolve to place a candidate in the most appropriate location for them and not just the first company that expresses an interest or offers the highest salary."

Civil Manager – Civil / Structural Consultancy

"As a graduate, fresh out of uni, it can be overwhelming trying to find a company that has the expertise to help forge the career you want – it is difficult getting to know the industry from the outside. Chris Tan Consulting provided a wealth of industry knowledge and an unbiased opinion to help steer me towards a company that is exactly what I wanted."
