It's time to put your feet up for a well-earned break

Authored By Lesley Horsburgh

It’s been a significant year for the recruitment industry and in turn for everyone at APSCo, as we continue to strengthen our foundations and build a stronger Membership community.

With the help of our wonderful Members and the support and knowledge of a long list of Affiliate Partners, we are proud of what became a year none of us had quite imagined.

The launch of our annual Conference; Emerge, meant we were able to sneak in a face-to-face event just days before further lockdown, earning the team and all of our speakers some incredible feedback.

Our focused Committees and Networks have enabled us to drive a deeper level of engagement among Members – not just within the ranks of management or at the coalface of recruitment but across key roles in finance and in-house counsel.

2022 will see the launch of new committees across NSW, Vic, and Qld – with an eye on other regions as our Members demand.

Our Conference is planned for a return in May and we hope to reveal some exciting new plans to address the ongoing need to promote our industry as a career of choice and drive a long-term solution for the entire recruitment industry.

Our Webinars have received fantastic feedback during the year and we are fast becoming known for our strong content and a real sense of collaboration - I’d like to thank all of those speakers and contributors who have worked with us during 2021 to deliver a calendar of events that we are extremely proud of.

Many of you will know we undertook some work to revamp our Certification program, releasing six core modules that build a quality foundation for learning among recruitment professionals. As clients continue to focus on best practices and a standard of service that is fully compliant we expect our program to move from strength to strength. Working with our Members to fulfill our own objectives in delivering quality learning will be a big focus for us in the New Year.

With that, all that is left is to thank each and every one of you for your participation with APSCo this year, I wish you all a very safe and happy holiday season.

Thank you to the wonderful APSCo team; Carly, Gillian, Janielle, Josie and Paul and to our wonderful Board of Directors – your commitment and passion is greatly appreciated.

The APSCo team will be taking a short break between December 23 and January 6 to reconnect with our family and friends and enjoy the festive season. If you require assistance relating to your membership during this time, please email who will respond to your email as soon as practical. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
