Who is Butler HR?

Butler HR is private recruitment and HR consultancy with 20 years of experience and success. Sensitive to social and HR trends and consumer behaviour, we’re always looking for what’s around the corner. Our focus on marketing and communications strategies is quite different from the more typical transactional sales driven firm. We are high-service people who help ambitious individuals and companies from SMEs to corporates find success. To some, we’re provocative, protagonists, challengers, disruptors but always leaders and experts who can show you a better way.

We choose to work with and for amazing people in all professions and at all levels of management.


Scott Butler, Principal Consultant

Scott’s focus is professional and executive recruitment and HR consultancy across industry, and has been involved in many of the region’s top C-level executive and management teams over the past 20 years.

He has an in-depth appreciation and knowledge of the local employment market and is expert on the best way to promote vacancies and attract the best audience; and get results.

Scott sees Butler HR as a MarComms business specialising in recruitment services. Passionate about employment advertising and employer branding; Scott and Butler HR have earned a reputation for producing ‘attractive propositions’ and have been national finalists in the Fairfax Employment Marketing Awards (FEMA).


Faye Hollands - Digital Media, Customer & Recruitment Coordinator

Faye keeps the wheels turning at Butler HR and is passionate about helping people create careers they love.

With over 20 years in recruitment, HR and career coaching, she knows a thing or two about successful career planning and thrives on helping people navigate the job market with grace and ease.

Having run her own career coaching business for over 15 years, Faye fully appreciates what it takes to look after customers well and how to leverage digital media to create incredible career opportunities.

At Butler HR, she keeps Scott in check, looks after our customers makes sure our candidates are happy, and keeps the business cogs turning smoothly!

When she’s not working, Faye can be found drinking lots of hot sugary tea (she’s a Pom), chasing guinea pigs (and her kids), and raising money for childhood cancer (that’s a longer story).


Gareth McKeen, former CEO-The Cram Foundation

Butler HR provides the best of both worlds by capturing the essence of a regional recruitment agency in terms of personalised approach and understanding of local employment needs but delivered with the professionalism and slickness of a capital city recruiter. Having been on both sides of the Butler HR recruitment process as a client and an applicant, I can testify to the alignment of the process and outcomes for the employer and the jobseeker that Butler HR offers.


Steve Beard, former CEO of Greenacres Disability Services and the Flagstaff Group

At the end of 2012, Butler HR was contracted to recruit an Executive HR Manager with a range of skills and attributes that would help Greenacres Disability Services move towards the requirements of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). Butler HR were able to capture the strategic requirements posed by the NDIS and marry this with an understanding of Greenacres’ mission which led to the recruitment of an excellent candidate who met the demanding criteria. Critical to attracting the best candidates was the reputation of Butler HR and the professional manner in which they conducted the recruitment process. Greenacres was very pleased with both the process and the outcome.


Steven Johnston, Management Consultant-4th Dialectic

I’ve experienced Scott Butler and Butler HR from both sides of the fence, initially as a candidate and latterly on interview panels for senior positions for an array of clients. As a candidate I was struck with Scott’s integrity and respect for both his client and each candidate by going beyond the literal wording of the brief, to identify the best possible match, not simply the “easy fit”. As a panel member I am continually impressed with and appreciative of Scott’s high personal standards of client care, professionalism and attention to detail in determining each candidate’s aptitude and suitability, how they compare with each other, and their critical strengths for the position to be filled.


Maree Kerr, former General Manager-Illawarra Healthy Cities

My experience with Scott and Butler HR has been of the highest professional standard. As someone seeking an executive position I found Scott consistently provided options of employment due to Butler HR’s expertise, experience and credibility with executive recruitment.


Mike Leask, former CEO-Illawarra Business Chamber

Butler HR embodies the real value of a regional recruitment firm, where the client and prospective candidates are often well known personally to the firm. Butler HR has the ability to attract the right candidate by an inherent knowledge of the personality, culture and specific skills of the individual gained from years of community engagement and networking. For the client, Butler HR’s understanding of the business operations, its management and the business culture complete the advantage which a regional recruitment firm adds value to the process. It is not often that a recruiter keeps you in their network prior to, during and following your exit from a client firm as Butler HR does.


Chris Apps, Principal Psychologist Fermion

I have been working with Butler HR for over 10 years and have witnessed first-hand their professionalism, expertise and commitment in meeting the staffing needs of organisations, whether it be permanent or temporary staff. If you demand a Recruitment Consultant who provides superior service and the ability to source the best available candidates then you need to talk to Butler HR. Scott and his staff’s ability to craft and present a recruitment process that suits your needs are un-matched.
