Savills Australia is celebrating recruitment success, after enlisting 12 staff members from JLL’s Sydney and Melbourne industrial businesses in the past four months.

Savills Australia & New Zealand CEO, Paul Craig, said the company was “aggressively growing several core divisions”, with the Industrial & Business Services and Office Leasing product lines leading the charge.

"We have welcomed more than 300 new staff members in the past 12 months, with 66 of those starting in the past six weeks." 

“Of the new hires, 15 are returning employees, highlighting the attraction of Savills collaborative workplace culture and our ongoing commitment to developing our people," he concluded.

The agency’s Industrial & Business Services division is set to expand with the appointment of 12 industrial team members from JLL, including directors Michael Wall, Nick Crothers, Brad Esler, Scott Nienhuis, Jeremy Cooper and Edward Washer.

National head of Industrial & Business Services, Michael Fenton, who also joined Savills from JLL last year, said the recruitment was consistent with the business’ national growth strategy to take Savills to the top ranking in the Australian industrial market.

Savills have also opened a new South Sydney Office (pictured).

The news follows Savills announcement of an alliance with Queensland-based proptech start-up company, SA1 Property, in late 2018.

Mr Fenton said the union had been allowing Savills to provide its clients with "unique information for location decisions," which were likely to result in “millions of dollars in savings for industrial occupiers and de-risk the investment thesis for investors and developers in transactions”.

“This is an exciting point of difference for Savills and is generating business for our industrial agency and tenant representation product lines,” he said.
