About New Point Recruitment: What we are continually striving to do at New Point Recruitment is help businesses connect with good people that will make a positive impact on their company. The flow on effect for that is a thriving market for the Gold Coast and surrounding regions, further employment opportunities and business owners and their staff enjoying their place of work. It sounds really simple however it is quite complex and requires a focus on candidate attraction strategies, the delivery of sound recruitment processes, an excellent understanding of businesses and a good understanding of our current job market. We have found success in what we do and achieve results for our clients. Our goal, at New Point, is to deliver better recruitment outcomes for our clients. We achieve this through sound processes, the use of technology and innovative candidate sourcing strategies.

About Gold Coast Professionals Hub: The Gold Coast Professionals Hub is an exclusive LinkedIn group of business Professionals and Executives created specifically to give each of us a voice in a respectful peer to peer environment. Our purpose is:

  1. Providing a local Gold Coast and greater region group for you to connect with like-minded professionals – it’s a collaborative open forum for ideas and innovation. This is not and never will be linked to a membership that requires the commitment of regular meetings or membership fees
  2. Providing opportunity for ongoing professional development through the sharing of knowledge, research and opinions.
  3. Providing a platform for locals to share upcoming events and/or showcase their business – It is not our purpose to sell our services or products in this environment. If at any time there is a special event or unique opportunity you feel would be beneficial for our group, we will be happy to post it once approved.
