Aptus Celebrate 5 Year Anniversary

On March 15th 2015 Aptus Australia will celebrate 5 years of business. This is a milestone I am very proud to reach. As owner of the business I couldn’t be more proud of the reputation Aptus has, the people we have as part of the business and the people we’ve all had the pleasure of working with over the years. 5 years ago I had a fair idea of where Aptus would take me however I couldn’t have hoped to have so much fun and make so many friends along the way.

To celebrate our 5 year anniversary and the release of our new website I thought I’d list our most significant milestones along the way:


March 15th 2010     Aptus Personnel opens our first office in Heidelberg, Victoria, Australia with Consulting Engineering setting the foundations of the business

October 2010     Aptus Personnel move into 454 Collins street Melbourne

February 2011     Aptus Personnel establish Energy & Resources business unit in Melbourne

March 2011     Aptus Personnel establish Construction business unit in Melbourne

October 2012     Aptus Recruitment UK opens our doors with business units Accounting & Life Sciences setting the foundations in Exeter, Devon, UK.

July 2013     Aptus Personnel establish IT Digital business unit in Melbourne

May 2014     Aptus Recruitment establish IT Digital business unit in Exeter

January 2015     Aptus Personnel promote Lee McAndrews to Associate Director, Melbourne

March 2015     Aptus Recruitment promote Martin Sandford to Manager, Exeter

March 2015     Aptus Personnel & Aptus Recruitment release new state of the art website and mobile website

I would like to personally thank all of our clients, our people we’ve worked with over our journey and also, I’d like to thank the following people for a minimum of 12 months service to the company so far. It’s been an amazing 5 years, I really look forward to celebrating many more years with you all.
