After spending the bulk of 2011/2012 searching for an appropriate job to progress my career in New Zealand without any luck due to the unique tool set used by my current employer, I have decided to move to Melbourne in the next few months.

Can anyone recommend a good IT recruitment adviser or agency for me to contact before I move?

I'm looking for junior BA roles but my main concern is finding a job before my savings run out (1 to 2 months).

I've been in my first software development role (non standard programming language and in house build tools) out of uni for the last 5+ years, but my role has shifted to include business analysis functions in the most recent 2.5 years.

Thanks in advance.

Are you looking for a permanent role or contracting?

Big corporate? Large IT shop? Smaller?

What industries have you worked in/with?

Looking around on seek for the last few months there hasn't been many junior BA contracting roles so I'm mainly looking for permanent roles. But realistically I would consider either just to move my career forward.

The size of the company doesn't concern me as long as the roles primary focus is on business analysis, my current job includes BA duties and development duties on the same project, but I want drop the development tasks and move to a full time BA role.

I work for a small company (approx 20 people) in the financial services industry in a similar area as your current and previous employer. In fact one of the projects I have worked on was related to integrating data from a file generated by your employer in to the software my current employer provides to one of the big banks in Australia.

Yeah, I've been keeping an eye out on seek. I have applied for a few roles, but not being in Melbourne is an issue.

Haha did you look me up on LinkedIn?

I would set firstly set up an email alert on seek.com.au to send you a daily email of all new listed BA jobs in Melbourne. I found that timing was important. Once an ad has been up a day or two, the recruiters often have a few good names and tend to ignore the rest of candidates coming in.

The big recruitment players seem to be Candle, Hays, Experis/Manpower, Talent2 (After Novapay, maybe avoid), SMS Consulting (avoid) and Robert Walters and . I'd get on the phone to them rather than just emailing in your CV. If they ask you to email your CV, get their personal email address, and follow up with them a couple of days later to get their feedback.

We have a contingent of BAs where I am now. I'm not sure if we have any roles going but if you want to flick me your CV I'd be happy to have a look and see what I can do.
