Recruitment & Marketing Assistant - The Talent Mill - Sydney or Melbourne

2021 has bought in record growth and abundance for The TM – as such we are looking to grow the team with the appointment of a Part-time Retail Recruitment & Marketing Assistant.



About the Talent Mill

Founded by Ange Millar in 2018 – The TM was created to offer a true alternative to the churn of recruitment. An experience that honoured all parties and was more about creating meaningful, lasting working relationships and less about transactional recruitment.

Ange has over 15 years experience in building high performing and engaged teams from High St fashion through to top tier luxury brands. From her roots in fashion retail, she has designed a successful career based on authenticity and transparency in communication; fun and high energy work; and a true understanding of career management including navigating relocations and career pivots.


“I believe that it is a privilege to help companies with building high performing teams and individuals with their career search and strategy – it should be treated so!”

So much magic can happen when partnerships are created on strong ethics, transparency, and a real desire to understand what success looks like for our clients. It is this approach that I believe separates the TM from our competitors. The Talent Mill is generous with expertise, knowledge, and connections – we know that great talent knows great talent.

This role can operate from anywhere in Australia, but preference is Sydney or Melbourne. Part-time hours initially (15 hours) and a lot of flexibility and working from home.
