Nicola Steel

Since 1999, I have connected over 1000 IT professionals with leading startups, SMEs and corporates in both Australia and the UK. Over 99% of candidates I place pass their probation period and become highly valued team members thus avoiding the pain and cost of a bad hire.My passion is connecting tech start-ups with software experts. A major barrier to growth for start-ups is finding the right balance of exceptional technical skills with the right cultural fit. Over the last 20+ years, I have gained a thorough understanding of what kind of person thrives in the fast-paced and rapidly changing world of start-ups. Based on my expertise with start-ups, I have been selected as the Preferred Recruitment Partner for ACS QLD and River City Labs. I am also a volunteer mentor at River City Labs to advise and help start-ups grow and succeed.
