Our “Recruitment Methodology”

The strength of our Recruitment Methodology lies in its ability to provide the best a traditional recruitment company can offer, at highly competitive rates. We supply only the most qualified services and resources once we’ve taken the time to get to know your business.

Equipped with an understanding of IT and specialising in IT resources, our consultants draw on a “virtual bench” of candidates known for their high level of performance to ensure a perfect match for your business.

CITI Recruitment Skills & Database System

We have developed our own unique CITI Recruitment Technology Framework. This system utilises a combination of technologies that allows us to source the best (and rarest) candidates quickly. Our Recruitment Technology Framework consists of the following:

  • A self-updating (via iProfile) IT Talent database totalling over 220,000 IT Candidates.
  • Experience assisting our clients with processing 457 business visas for overseas skilled IT applicants looking to work in Australia.
  • All consultants have LinkedIn Recruiter with unrestricted access to over 220 Million users worldwide.
  • Job Advertising services including coverage across 24 premium job-boards.
  • International & National, IT contract, IT permanent and executive search recruitment services.
  • Automatic tracking of candidates on over 25 Social Networks.
  • Automatic job advert tracking, scheduling and mail-outs.
  • Regular sponsorship of IT Networkgroups both in Australia and America

Professional Business and Social Networks

We have developed an outstanding professional network integrating the top 3 Online Business Networking Systems. From here CITI Recruitment sources the rarest, most highly sought after professionals for your company. These are the type of individuals who have never needed to send their resumes to a recruitment company before.


  • We have built a number of niche Facebook pages that automatically post our latest jobs to our community of Clients and Candidates. We run regular, targeted recruitment campaigns for many of our clients on Facebook for a fraction of the cost of hiring a marketing company. Our costs start at $50 a day and we provide full web analytical reports each week.


  • We  use Linkedin Recruiter to deliver the most complete list of candidates, including full names and profiles for over 220 Million users.
  • Our consultants have been using LinkedIn from the very start. We maintain LinkedIn premium business accounts that allow us to find the rarest candidates for your resourcing needs.
  • We are a member of over 40 LinkedIn Groups and maintain an enviable network of IT Professionals.
  • Our consultants maintain between 1000-5000 direct contacts gained from search & selection activities over the past 7 years.
  • We use LinkedIn to highlight our Blogs, Available Jobs and most importantly testimonials.


  • We regularly post all our jobs to Twitter and have gained a strong following of highly skilled IT candidates who look to us for the latest in recruitment news and career and motivational thought leadership.
  • Our social media publishing system has been so successful that we have since sold this method to other recruitment agencies, cementing our position at the forefront  of the latest recruitment technologies and processes.

Search Framework

We have developed our own search framework that combines four of the latest auto-indexing, keyword and smart search systems. We are able to conduct a candidate search quickly and anywhere with an internet connection.

Referral System

We believe in rewarding the people we work with. We maintain an active referral scheme that’s linked to our Online Business Networking System. This allows us to pro-actively introduce highly recommended candidates to our clients.

Our Competitive Advantage?

We have developed our own suite of leading edge  search technology, truly unique within the Australian Recruitment Market among firms large and small.

  • Sabrina Matuda

    I am a real people person and spent over a decade in language studies, coaching and sales. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Languages and Literature, a Master's degree in English and a PhD in Translation studies (#nerd). However, a serendipitous event got me into IT recruitment. And I’m loving it! Why? Recruiting has allowed me to leverage my passion for building and maintaining rewarding relationships with my clients while remaining challenged to find the perfect candidates and, in my case, it has also allowed me to keep updated with all the technology trends out there. I take pride in ensuring that placements are a strong match for both parties. There’s nothing more exciting than helping smart people find their next challenge. If I’m not working, I’m probably learning a new language, enjoying a glass of nice champagne or traveling. Also, I love meeting new people and learning new things, so feel free to connect and share your experience. :) If you are looking at hiring or contemplating your next career move in IT hit me up on

What Others Say

“Steve and his team completely changed my perception and experience of recruiters.”

“Steve and his team completely changed my perception and experience of recruiters. Theywere thoroughly professional, no nonsense, honest and best of all not pushy. I felt continently that he had my best interests at heart. They identified a role and company matching my skills and personality, and guided me throughout the process. They were a genuine pleasure to work with. I am more than happy to recommend Steve and his team at CITI Recruitment, and know he’ll be my first point of contact in the future if changing jobs”. – Kevin J, Accenture.
