Kylie is a very trustworthy agent contact during my stint at IBM's Workforce Management being tasked as recruiting and putting on board successful candidates for IBM Contracting roles for our Managers. Her dedication and responsibility to get the best available candidates to be interviewed by our managers together with her cheerful and friendly manners always make her a real stand-out amongst other agents that I used to deal with. I would not hesitate to recommend Kylie to any interested parties in relation to her profession.


Felix Y

Agile Business Analyst at Department of Industry, Innovation and Science

A recruiter with heart and an understanding of the bigger picture. That is how I was struck by Kylie's dazzling personality. As we sat down and talked about my career plans we soon started discussing our dreams and passions and how our current career could be tailored to lead towards the fulfillment of those. Even though she was not the one who placed me in this role, which I am thoroughly enjoying as it so happens, I am most definitely keeping in touch with Kylie since the nature of the life of a contracting business analyst takes me from one engagement to the next. It is comforting to know that Kylie will be there for me. Onwards and upwards, Kylie, for the both of us!

Kylie was brilliant in ensuring I was more than prepared for my first interview in many years. She supported me in my understanding of my market value and provided some tips and tricks around negotiation. I also discovered Kylie has a sharp insight into how people within business operate and processes of companies. This was invaluable in calming my nerves and giving me the language to discuss the role I was applying for. I highly valued her input and will use her advice again. Thank you so much Kylie.

Undergraduate- Electrical Engineering

In Feb 2016, I initially spoke with Kylie about a Systems Engineering position. At the time, I was still completing my studies and based interstate. Kylie took the time to understand my situation and knew that I would relocate from Sydney to Canberra for the right role. In July 16 and recalling that I would soon complete my studies, and asked if I would consider Engineering Graduate opportunities. Kylie was very capable in understanding and assessing my existing skill set, and was able to tailor a role that would be beneficial to both my own professional development and meet the business needs. She proactively arranged meetings with the Directors and other team members and lined up the opportunity and managed a seamless on-boarding process.

I've been working with Kylie for seven months now and have been impressed by her thoroughness and dedication to candidate and client requirements. Kylie takes the time to get to know the candidate or client and tailors her actions to suit the needs. I recommend Kylie to candidates searching for that next role and to clients looking for a match to their company needs and culture.


Marcelle N

People and Culture Manager

On 20 May 2013, Thales Australia Ltd entered a Master / Vendor Labour Hire Agreement with Clarius Group Limited and Kylie Makkink was nominated as the local Canberra Account Manager as she had previously been contacting me about doing business with Thales, leveraging off working with Thales previously in Sydney. Since Thales entered the agreement, the Canberra office have processed over 11 contractors using Oracle’s Taleo software HR, Learning and Recruitment Solution. Clarius have been diligent and thorough in meeting their commitment, stringent KPI’s and listening to, and meeting our business needs in a timely manner including undertaking onsite WHS inspections and ensuring contractors have gone through appropriate induction training including WorkPro for both Clarius and also Thales. I can recommend the Clarius Group Limited (trading as Candle) to meet your Master / Vendor Labour Hire requirements.
