Providing Tailored Advice
Are you up to date with the changes to awards or aware of court decisions that are changing the employment landscape?
We can support you by auditing your policies and procedures to identify risks and reduce them. Performance management, incentive schemes, remuneration reviews, retention, managing grievances, or providing leadership training we’ve got it covered.
We can help to avoid making over broad rules and guidance that could fall foul of restricting employees’ rights whilst ensuring you still get the intended messages across.
Consultation & Redundancy
In the case of redundancies, the consultation process is not only mandatory but is required to take place within timelines laid out in the awards.
Redundancy is tough, but companies can support their outgoing employees by providing help in the form of resume preparation, career advice, and job seeking assistance. Top People can assist and support you through what can be a difficult time.

I worked with Rob for approximately 4 years, during which time he provided both high-level advice and hands-on assistance regarding all employment issues from recruitment and performance management through to termination of employment and management of any post-termination issues. Rob also developed the HR Management System that was implemented across the operations.
Rob played a significant role in achieving, and exceeding, the company’s Indigenous employment target, at one stage achieving almost 40% Indigenous employment. He always made himself directly contactable and would address any queries regarding employment in person.
Personally, Rob was always ready to assist with any HR issue or question that I had, and I had full confidence in both his integrity and confidentiality. His manner is simple, direct and seeks to remove ambiguity from any situation, which I appreciated.
Rob is a very experienced and professional HR and Recruitment specialist, and I would recommend him for any such role.
I’ve worked with Rob over many years. Rob recently completed a policy review at Metallica Minerals on time and on budget. The work was completed to a high standard.
I worked alongside Rob at Metro Mining for around 3 years. Throughout some very challenging times Rob was always professional and committed. Basically Rob is very good at his job and was great to work with. I would thoroughly recommend Rob and would enjoy working alongside him again if the opportunity came up.
I had the pleasure of working with Rob at Metro Mining. Rob was responsible for employing a vast array of people from executives to trainees at the mine site north of Weipa. He was often required to fill positions at short notice and under considerable time constraints. He always just got on with the job. It’s been a pleasure working with Rob he gets on well with people and works hard to be part of the team.
Rob did a very good job for Metro in extremely challenging times. We have seen some highs with the start up of the mine in 2018, and the move to Owner Operator (recruitment of 140+ personnel) a year later, through to the lowest of lows this year, where we were significantly affected by COVID and we had the unenviable task of reducing our workforce. On this latter point Rob worked closely with myself and the General Manager at the mine supporting us through this difficult process.
I enjoyed working with Rob and would be happy to make a recommendation personally if required in the future.
I have been associated with Robert through Top People. This business provides a range of services in executive recruitment predominantly in the mining sector.
Robert brings wide ranging experience across a range of Australian and international operations. He is punctual and concise in all communications on the progress of projects, and adapts quickly to challenges within briefs to deliver superior outcomes for the long term business gain.
He is a well-spoken, polite & courteous professional who has demonstrated his commitment to mastering new skills in a fast changing industry.
