Career Transition & Outplacement
“My contract was coming to a close and my employer offered me the opportunity to select from three executive transition providers, Dakin Mayers and two others. I interviewed each group, contacted some of Dakin Mayers’ previous clients and settled on them because of the positive comments made by these clients and my own assessment that they had a professional, proactive, tell it like it is approach to help executives seek and secure satisfying positions.
This occurred during an uncertain point in my professional life, when I needed support, and the staff at Dakin Mayers unfailingly showed a smiling, positive attitude that motivated me to succeed. They helped me with updating my resumes and sharpening my interviewing skills and I subsequently found a new position more quickly than I had expected. I have no doubt that the professional advice and support provided to me by the Principals, Consultants and office staff at Dakin Mayers were instrumental in my success. I would not hesitate to recommend Dakin Mayers to other executives looking for new opportunities.”

“My experience with Dakin Mayers was resoundingly positive and, most importantly, supported me to identify and successfully take the next steps in my career. Their consultants understood and cared about my situation and needs, thereby amply demonstrating their significant experience with supporting people who unexpectedly find themselves unemployed. From the first to the last session with them, I felt empowered to see the opportunities that lay ahead rather than focus on the past and what I had lost.
I received practical career planning and job seeking tools and advice, networking opportunities with key people in my field and access to critical resources such as an office and IT. Their program ensured that I was organised, strategic and thorough in my approach to the task of career transition. I could not have felt better prepared and more confident to achieve my desired career outcome. If circumstances have left you with the task of securing a new career pathway, engagement with Dakin Mayers will undoubtedly provide a launching pad to successful transition.”

Executive Search & Recruitment
“We engaged Dakin Mayers to search for a State Manager for Victoria. That assignment was handled very well, so we engaged them to search for a new CEO. They were fantastic, advised us well at the outset, and kept us informed at every stage of the process. At all times I felt as though we were part of a focused team. They managed the entire process very professionally with a minimum of fuss and we achieved the outcome we sought. I would have no hesitation engaging Dakin Mayers in the future.”
“Thank you for finding such a great candidate for our position of Director of Fundraising. I would like to compliment you on the way that Dakin Mayers identified the type of person we were looking for, conducted the search and found the right person for the job and organisation. I have used your firm on a number of occasions and in different organisations and each time you successfully delivered. I would also like to mention the way in which you support the candidates as our new Director was very complimentary about Dakin Mayers.”
