Hello there

I’m Cynthia and Heart Recruitment is my business.

I love connecting marketing, communication and fundraising people with great opportunities and finding the best people for my clients.

I’m passionate about recruitment done right.

This involves lots of things, including best practice candidate attraction and engagement; open and professional communication; positive candidate experience; managing the employer brand and honest advice (even if I can’t help).

I believe a good recruiter is a true consultant.

A consultant provides advice and guidance… and most importantly, adds value.

I started my working life in corporate communication, marketing communication and PR in Brisbane and the UK before discovering my love for recruitment.

Since 2005, I’ve been connecting marketing, communication and fundraising people with organisations in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and London.

I’ve worked in partnership with hundreds of organisations across the corporate, public and not for profit sectors including technology, education, charity, professional services, financial services, telecommunications, property, retail, government and utilities.

I’ve met thousands of marketing and communication leaders, content producers, digital marketers, communication specialists, campaign managers, marketing executives, marketing and communication coordinators, fundraisers, PR professionals, social media specialists, copywriters, product managers, event manages and business development professionals.

I love meeting and getting to know people, their career aspirations and their visions for the teams they lead.

In my ‘previous life’, I worked for leading international law firm Norton Rose Fulbright, respected Queensland communication agency BBS Communications, Queensland and UK government departments and BP International.

After five years working in marketing communications and 10+ years in marketing and communication recruitment, I decided to start Heart Recruitment.

Heart is my way to do what I love, the way I believe it should be done.

It also allows me the flexibility to work around the two small humans who’ve turned my world upside down in recent years.

I’m known for my open, honest and straightforward approach - and for delivering recruitment results through top-notch service.

If you’re a marketing, communication or fundraising person in Sydney or Brisbane, I’d love to get to know you.


With Heart, you’ll always get these things. . .


Let’s keep it real. Honest, ethical and straightforward - always. There’s no other way.

for recruitment done right. This means honest advice; best practice candidate attraction and engagement; open and professional communication; positive candidate experience and careful management your employer brand.
