Because experience counts

When Programmed and SKILLED joined forces in 2015, we brought together the stability, strength and expertise that comes with over 100 years of combined operating experience.

Each year we deploy more than 50,000 field employees to over 3,000 customer locations across Australia and New Zealand.

Our unparalleled breadth of industry experience, long-standing history and unmatched geographic reach means there’s little we can’t achieve when it comes to fulfilling your workforce needs.

Our market leadership position is reinforced by our industry-leading safety performance, national and local network coverage and management of Australia’s largest database of skilled workers.
