Today we are proud to announce a great shift in the way that business is conducted in the Australian marketplace.

AGL Energy Limited (AGL) and Consulting WorX have engaged in a strategic partnership whereby Consulting WorX will facilitate an online marketplace for consultants, freelance and contract staff for vacant short term, part time energy and carbon management employment opportunities around Australia.

This is a significant change to the way that business is conducted in Australia where companies are now looking for skilled professionals on a contract or temporary basis.

Consulting WorX established their business to better support the requirements of Australian businesses when headcounts are tight and budgets are stretched. The Consulting WorX online marketplace also works as it is a community that enables consultants to network and ultimately find additional contracts/roles. Consulting WorX is really focused on helping to achieve work-life balance for both the business and consultant it is working to connect.

Marc Barrington, Head of AGL Carbon Management Services, said, “This is an efficient way for us to conduct business when we need to source skilled and highly qualified people quickly for short term projects around Australia. Consulting WorX has an excellent database of professionals ready to work for us.”

The partnership between the two companies will be ongoing for the next 12 months with AGL sponsoring the new energy category on the site.

“Recruitment through the site will be of project managers and technicians,” said Mr Barrington.

Patrina Kerr, Director of Consulting WorX states “We are really excited to be working with such an iconic and established company like AGL Energy. We can see some very strategic benefits to the agreement for both companies and look forward to a great working relationship.”
