Trevor Vas - CEO & Principal Consultant

Trevor has extensive experience in the Recruitment, Information Technology and Finance industries. His ability to innovate within industries and move to the top of each field has been achieved by first setting a vision, and then delivering the vision with precision, energy, passion, creativity and most of all, persistence.

Trevor established Human Capital Management Solutions (HCMS) in 2000, Insidejob in 2005 and the Australasian Talent Conference (ATC) in 2007. HCMS realised a vision to create a unique and independent consulting business to revolutionise recruitment practices. Insidejob recruits corporate recruitment professionals and provides unique capability-based recruiter assessments and training programs. The ATC offers industry-leading thinking to assist HCMS and other organisations provide creative solutions.

Trevor is well on the way to achieving this vision having successfully sold and delivered major projects to corporations such as Qantas, Telstra, Coles Myer, Westpac, Suncorp, NZ Post, Air New Zealand, Vodafone and others. Trevor is also the Director and Founder of the Australasian Talent Conference (ATC). The ATC specialises in providing events on Sourcing & Engaging Candidates, Talent Management and the Contingent Workforce. Over the last 10 years the ATC has run over 40 major events in Australia & New Zealand. Trevor is also a subject matter in these areas and has provided consulting to major organisations in Australia and New Zealand. The conferences, training and consulting have gone a small way to improving how talent is recruited.
