Peoplefusion is a Newcastle-based recruitment company founded in 2007 by Directors Ali Kimmorley and Sally Bartley, two childhood friends who grew up mere streets apart in the Hunter region. Borne through their combined passions for finding the perfect candidate for the right company and with extensive expertise in the area, the duo have grown peoplefusion to be the preeminent recruitment consultancy in the region. The business operates in a number of specialist areas, including office support, finance, human resources, sales and marketing, executive, information technology, supply chain, engineering, mining, and manufacturing.
From humble beginnings as a project of passion, peoplefusion is now synonymous with the highest standards of professionalism and has garnered a reputation for connecting with the best talent in the region — and it all happens within Bullhorn.
Ali Kimmorley and Sally Bartley are well-versed recruiters who have been pioneers in the industry since 1999. They had long used a well known server-based competitor, but Ali and her team found this solution to be not only slow and ineffective, but also lacking in features that they required for their unique recruitment sector and style. Peoplefusion soon outgrew its software and decided that a change was needed. “Our solution was clunky when it was working,” said Kimmorley, “and when it wasn’t, the customer service was simply sub-par.”
I really think the customisability allows Bullhorn to suit businesses of all sizes, and we’re a great example. The implementation was brilliant and Bullhorn’s project management was exceptional — it really surpassed our speed and implementation expectations.
