Vanessa Cole

Recruitment Consultant

Vanessa has a background in acting and writing for stage and screen, having studied Honours and a Bachelor of Performing Arts at Monash University, before moving to Sydney to study a Bachelor of Dramatic Art (Acting) at NIDA. She started a theatre company for which she wrote, acted and directed new plays, was a finalist in the Beverly Hills Film Festival for a feature screenplay, and won Best Short for a comedy web-series at the Impro Film Festival. Through this, Vanessa has dedicated her time to studying people and human behaviour, in order to understand their drive, desires, and individuality, which has married well with her new career in recruitment. Vanessa now recruits Permanent staff for some of Australia’s largest and well-known organisations, and she gets a real thrill out of matching excellent candidates with equally excellent companies.

Outside of recruitment, Vanessa is on a mission to eat her way around Sydney, scavenging for the tastiest morsels and drops of crimson this great city has to offer.

Recruiter Insider Reviews

I met Vanessa yesterday at Mayday and she was the warmest and friendly face. She then spoke to me about two roles and we discussed which one would be most suitable for me. Bianca explained to Vanessa what I was looking for beforehand and Vanessa came in, introduced herself and spoke about the things that are important to me and why this job and company would meet my needs. I was put forward for the role on the same day which was so good for me because the job I was actually at the agency to speak to another consultant about was taken already. I was no longer walking away disappointed! So the best thing about Vanessa is that she spontaneously thought on her feet and recognised my suitability for this role in the shortest time and really impressed me and gave me some hope. 


Vanessa goes over and above showing a lot of proactivity and genuine care. I am very lucky to of had her support. By far the best recruiter in a very professional organisation.
