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 just wanted to take a minute to touch base and share with you my sincerest appreciation for absolutely everything you have done in helping me find a suitable position in Adelaide.

I think I mentioned to you early on that I had spoken with another recruiter before you, who I felt wrote me off a little and put me in the “too-hard basket” because I was overseas and hadn’t worked in Adelaide before. Something that I have felt from the beginning is your unwavering willingness to help, not only me but (my partner) as well, despite the complexities around our situation.

You offered me a huge sense of comfort at every stage of the process and your advice, insight and transparency about the Adelaide market is something that I have found hugely valuable. I cannot express enough just how much it meant to have someone to talk to openly and frankly about what I was thinking. Without doubt, you have gone above and beyond anything I would have expected.

Associate Architect

"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."

Project Director – Developer

"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."

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

"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."

Civil Engineer

"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."
