Definitive Consulting heads for Australia in latest step towards international expansion

City specialist to invest in growth markets across the Asia Pacific region – building on record-breaking performance on home soil

Specialist finance, consulting and legal markets recruitment consultancy, Definitive Consulting, has initiated its international expansion strategy, establishing its first international subsidiary in Sydney , Australia .

Based in the heart of Sydney ’s Central Business District (CBD), Definitive Consulting PTY Ltd ( opens for business with some of the world’s leading finance, accounting and legal brands already as clients.  They will be advised by a team of specialists combining exceptional local talent with senior consultants drawn from the firm’s successful team in London . 

Darren James, chief executive, has been encouraged by a series of meetings with the subsidiary’s start-up clients: “The markets we serve remain buoyant in Australia and every firm we have met with has very significant growth plans.  Those plans are only limited by the availability of talent and, given our international reach and our focus on search and selection, we are ideally placed to help address that challenge.  I’ve come away from almost every meeting with a brief for at least one senior hire who is based locally and the demand for UK-based accountants and lawyers prepared to relocate is unprecedented.”

That demand for talent is matched by candidates’ appetite to relocate to Australia , largely driven by lifestyle goals.  In a recent survey of senior accounting and legal executives in London , carried out by Definitive Consulting, Australia was named as the second most attractive overseas career move behind New York City . 

James said: “It is clear that our network of contacts, along with our unique approach to recruitment and our track record are valued very highly by our Australian clients.  We are already working on more than ten senior roles, with a focus on attracting the best talent from around the world, and that number grows by the day.”

The move into Australia is the first in a series of planned investments in growth markets worldwide – plans are already in place for further subsidiaries across South East Asia and the US .
