HR Management

A History of Excellence in Managing People

Chandler was founded in 1991 by Richard Chandler and Marc Rawnsley as a traditional labour hire agency. In 2013 Chandler Recruitment expanded to include several other divisions, including Chandler Solutions, and rebranded as Chandler Services.

Our labour hire branch remains today as Chandler Personnel. We work with numerous clients in Melbourne and surrounding suburbs, as well as interstate. We have over 500 daily direct contractors and over 13,000 candidates.

Over time, labour hire clients began regularly requesting permanent recruitment both for their blue and white collar staff; thus our permanent recruitment division was born. The permanent recruitment arm remains known as Chandler Recruitment.

We have a history of over 20 years of strong and long-term relationships with clients in construction, manufacturing, warehousing and transport.


Whether you need someone for a day, a week or permanently, you can rely on Chandler for your recruitment solution.

We help you construct position descriptions, advertise on your behalf and screen potential candidates. We have a simple yet tried and true formula for providing you with quality candidates.


Not only are Chandler specialists in recruitment, our consultants are well-versed in managing a workforce. Your personal consultant will assist you in rostering depending on your needs.

Whether you need to plan your roster for a day or a month, or need someone to handle replacing and cancelling staff, all you need do is outline your expectations and we handle the rest.


Take advantage of our team’s extensive experience in payroll. We pay your staff on time, every time according to the correct rates. With accounts experience ranging from small family businesses to large organisations, there is no organisation too big or too small for our payroll services.
