“CLIA Australasia is honoured to have enjoyed a long-standing partnership with InPlace Recruitment”


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


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


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.  I will definitely be recommending you with any recruitment assignment I am asked to comment on…and if I need a job, you will be the first people I call.  Deb Duncan

"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 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.


Sandra placed me in a role at Harvey World Travel Revesby 27 years ago and three years later I found myself owning a Harvey World Travel Franchise and using Sandra's fabulous service to source my own staff.


It has been an absolute pleasure working with Sandra and her team all these years. I look forward to many more years of using Sandra and her team's services - which I believe to be the best recruiting service in the industry.

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.


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.


Now, I still source some of the best staff through inPlace Recruitment. 


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.


Loyalty and dedication are two important aspects that are often not part of corporate Australia, and inPlace Recruitment has certainly demonstrated that these qualities are at the very core of its operations.


I am confident that inPlace Recruitment will continue to assist and guide those choosing a career path in travel, tourism and hospitality for many more years to come; and on behalf of the AFTA board, I would like to extend to you and the team our best wishes for the years ahead.


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.


Sandra has continually demonstrated her ongoing commitment and passion for the travel industry in so many ways because she genuinely cares about our industry. We need more people with her drive and enthusiasm, passion and grace.


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.


Sandra is a visionary leader as demonstrated by her creating the first travel specialist recruitment agency and later playing a key role in the development of TICA. Her professionalism is second to none and I have enjoyed working along side her in our various roles over the years.


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


Your quick responsiveness and knack at continually finding the right match for our niche pilgrimage roles has won over the respect of our staff and management.


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.


She has great passion for the industry and demonstrates an outstanding commitment over and above the normal course of duty. Here's to the next 30 years of recruiting great staff 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.


Her passion for our industry is still as strong as ever and in recent years Sandra has worked tirelessly to try and encourage new people to join the travel industry and help it remain an Industry of Choice for those seeking a new career. CATO thanks Sandra on behalf of all wholesalers for the support and service she has provided to them over the years.


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.


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.


Sandra's wealth of experience, passion and her commitment to the travel industry is recognised by many throughout the travel community. inPlace Recruitment has had a long association with the Globus Family of Brands, by being specialists in travel industry recruitment, while focusing on delivering the best candidate possible to meet our company's requirements.


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. 


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.


The travel industry has endured a lot of change and interesting incidents over the last 30 years and to have run and lead a business through these times is a remarkable achievement.

Thank you for all the staff you have placed for us over this time.
