Our Story

Over 40 years in recruitment

In 1976, three young draftsmen founded a company in a modest bungalow in Melbourne’s southern suburbs.

The company grew quickly and developed recruitment capabilities to meet project deadlines, and thus Bayside Personnel was born. More than four decades on, our parent company the Bayside Group has become one of Australia’s leading recruitment and workforce management companies, and encompasses eight specialist brands, of which Bayside Personnel is one of.

Established in 1978, Bayside Personnel was the first of the group’s specialist brands to form and was created to recruit engineering and technical professionals.

Bayside Personnel has since become a leading engineering recruiter, helping to resource some of Australia's largest engineering projects in addition to international projects, across a range of industries and disciplines.

Backed by decades of experience, knowledge and commitment, Bayside Personnel is proud to be built on dedicated consultants with unique insights and capabilities that allow us to tailor our services to the engineering and technical industry.

Throughout our history, we have strived to increase our capabilities. It is this through this constant growth that Bayside Personnel is able to build and maintain long-term, meaningful partnerships with our clients.
