Our Story




The Spinifex Story

Recruitment companies Smalls Recruiting, GWS and JHA originally began working together in 2004 out of a need the NSW State Government had to have a reliable, available, skilled temporary workforce throughout metropolitan and regional NSW. In time our relationship grew to also include this service to the Mining and Construction industries across metropolitan and regional Australia.
In August 2012 this longstanding partnership was incorporated into Spinifex Australia Holdings Pty Ltd.
