When you consider the number of quality staff hired through your agency there's little wonder you have been around for so many years. You and your team should be congratulated on offering such a professional agency for the industry.

A founding associate member of CATO, Sandra has been at the forefront of recruitment in the travel industry since 1981 when she started up the first travel specialist recruitment agency.

Congratulations to Sandra and the inPlace team who have been successfully serving Harvest's employment needs for almost 25 years.

I have been associated with Sandra for the past 15 years as Manager of AFTA Travel & Tourism College NSW and Australian Pacific Travel & Tourism where I provided inPlace with candidates for employment. I have also worked very closely with Sandra in her role as Vice Chairman of the Travel Industry Careers Association where I was also a committee member.


I worked for Sandra as a temp in the 80's, some 7 years in all before opening my own business. Travel People, as the company was previously known, was my first choice for staff.

Having dealt with Sandra and her team for the last 15 years I am not surprised of your long term success. You have lead the way in Travel recruitment and always with true professionalism.

I am in a wonderfully unique position of being able to speak of Sandra Chiles as both a long term client and a candidate of her company inPlace Recruitment.

I have personally known Sandra Chiles for appoximately 10+ years; both as an Industry colleague - in association with the creation of TICA (Travel Industry Careers Association) and as a client of her company.

Our Account Manager Kristi Gomm is one of the very few in the recruitment game that I hold in such high regard. Kristi deals with total integrity which is a quality I look for in people.

Sandra Chiles is an institution in travel industry recruitment. We have enjoyed working with her and the team at inPlace Recruitment over many years to help build the careers of people from across the industry. Their professionalism and industry knowledge is second to none. 

inPlace Recruitment has demonstrated its strong commitment to the travel industry over three significant and eventful decades; and as an organisation should be very proud of the large number of people it has so ably assisted over this time.

Sandra Chiles and inPlace Recruitment - two great names in the travel industry. Sandra is a true champion and she has achieved outstanding results over the years and I commend her for her success.

I have worked along side Sandra and inPlace Recruitment as a competitor, a colleague (in TICA) and as a client and I have always had the utmost respect for her dedication, passion and commitment to our industry.

Ben, "I have to say I am very impressed with the people you found and hopefully they enjoy working here and helping me build up the business for a number of years. Thank you very much with all your help, I know it took a little time and was probably a bit too particular but it was very much appreciated.

As the business grows you will definitely be 1st contact to find extra staff."

"I recently recruited for a senior consultant position in Melbourne and used the services of inPlace Recruitment exclusively. Ben and the team were excellent to deal with delivering me simply the best, most qualified short-list I have ever had the priveldge of interviewing. The only difficult part in the process was deciding who to hire - an unusual situation to be in in a candidate short market"

I would like to thank everyone at inPlace recruitment and especially you Sandra and Ben for your professionalism and for being the nicest people to work with. You take a genuine interest in everyone you meet and I hear this so often from others too.  You listen intently and really hear what it is an employer needs and the matches you put forward are always spot on! Keep up the great work guys.

Fantastic Ben – you pulled  that one out of the bag! A out of box request and short lead time. Fabulous stuff!

Thanks Ben for all you help, I was really impressed with your service.
