Company history

    Tradewind opened in Melbourne

    Tradewind opened in Melbourne, with the sole focus on assisting qualified teachers, healthcare professionals and social worker across Australia and New Zealand, prepare for and secure work throughout London and surrounds.

    Melbourne business expanded

    Our Melbourne business expanded and we began social work recruitment within Melbourne. We recognised that there was a shortage of organisations providing recruitment services to the social work sector, and with quality, experienced social workers returning home, we began recruiting for organisations across Melbourne.

  • 2009

    Began registering and placing primary and secondary teachers

    Following the roaring success of social work recruitment in Melbourne, and in keeping with the focus in the UK, we began registering and placing primary and secondary teachers into casual relief and contract positions in schools across Melbourne.

    Office move

    Education grew at a break-neck pace and we move to an office three times the size to fit the rapidly expanding Social Work and Education teams.

    1st PD

    Tradewind recognised a lack of professional development opportunities available for CRTs and created our first PD to help support the growth of our teachers. We rebrand to Tradewind Australia in line with our focus on domestic recruitment.

    Office move

    Another office move to a space double the size to house our growing staff. We continue to add to our professional development offerings and launch our new website.

    Office expansion

    Our office expansion into our former neighbour’s tenancy is in the planning stage to make space for the next period of expansion. The goal is to have an office Google would be jealous of.
