We have deliberately, strategically and meticulously built a small but perfectly formed team who are not only great to deal with, but also a helluva lot of fun to work with.

This is easier said than done of course – but if your Recruitment Company can’t build a great team for themselves – what are the chances that they can do it for you!  So, who are the miracle workers?



Our History

Caretakers Australia was established in 1996, pioneering Relief Management. For many years we have been recognised as an industry expert. Cliodhna Rae, our Managing Director and Chief Executive had a light bulb moment whilst holidaying in tropical Cairns. Always a lover of people, she was talking to the managers of the accommodation she had booked. The managers had not had a holiday in months. They did not have anyone to take over running the business. Relief Managers were in scarce supply so this is where our story begins.

In its infancy, Caretakers Australia concentrated on servicing the accommodation industry – Motels, Holiday Parks and Serviced Apartments by sourcing and placing experienced Relief Managers at these businesses so the permanent staff could have a break.

From this, the logical development was placing Permanent Managers in accommodation. As our knowledge developed in this area, so did the demand for our services.

By mid 2000, the Relief Management in accommodation was thriving and our GM had an office full of dedicated staff working in this area.

One day, whilst liaising with Storage Facilities in relation to storing all our Managing Director’s furniture – as she had taken off overseas - our GM had his light bulb moment!

He discovered Self Storage Facility Managers had a similar dilemma to those of the accommodation managers – no one to take over whilst they took time off. Hence our company branched out into another niche market – the Self-Storage industry. Both our niche areas have grown and developed and we have too.
