Teachers Mutual Bank Limited (TMBL) is one of
Australia’s largest mutual banks with over $8 billion
in assets. The organisation engaged JobFitts as their
exclusive recruitment partner 17 years ago.
In the highly competitive Sydney market, nding
and engaging quality talent is the most frustrating
aspect of recruitment for organisations like TMBL.
Competing against larger corporations, in terms of
career opportunities and salary, can be a signicant
challenge for smaller organisations.
The success of TMBL has always been dependent
on recruiting and retaining specialist banking talent
across all levels of their organisation. They require
talented candidates with unique skill sets who have
proven performance behaviours and a strong ethos of
customer focus.
Why engage JobFitts as your trusted
recruitment partner?
Account managers who understand the
role we are hiring for, and who demonstrate honesty
and transparency, are the key elements we look for
in a recruitment partner
– Isabel McNeil, Senior Recruitment Specialist
JobFitts has placed candidates with TMBL for 17
years. The legacy with the company, and the quality
of placements along with the good fee structure has
resulted in a long, strong and trusted partnership.
When we need staff quickly, especially temps, we
have used JobFitts. Having access to prequalied
temps with the right experience and skill sets make
it so much easier for internal recruiters and the hiring

choice for TMBL”
