"I've worked with many recruitment agencies but Sally at The Brownbill Effect was the first to offer an exemplary level of service. She made me feel like a priority and I was her only client.
Sally is polite, friendly, professional, and was personally interested in matching me with the right role.
From our initial contact until successful placement at my current position, she consistently supported me during the recruitment process. Sally went above and beyond to ensure I was prepared for my interview and kept me updated at every point in the process. She provided a personal and professional service, with a very positive mindset.
Sally is a job candidate’s Ultimate Dream Recruiter!"
TBE Jobs Testimonials
Some kind words from people that TBE Jobs has placed in full-time roles.
Working with Sally, I felt in great hands.
Being so lovely and personable, it was easy to chat with Sally about my needs. She is across the industry and understands the nuances, which is great when what you're looking for can be quite niche.
I also think there is a certain level of tenacity in the Brownbill office that worked to my advantage, it wasn't long at all before the right opportunity came up for me. And I am extremely grateful to Sally and the team for helping me get it.
I can't speak highly enough of my experience with TBE. Thanks!
“I’m grateful to Sally and Anthony for thinking of me when the job came across their desk that was perfect for me.
Despite our initial meeting being a couple of months prior, they didn’t hesitate to call and check in with me to see if I had already obtained a job.
Both were very approachable and made me feel very confident for my interview....and I got the job!”
"When I first met Sally, I knew things were going to be different.
It was fun from the start and within four short painless weeks, I found myself in an amazing role, working for an incredible design studio.
Sally’s striking empathy, compelling energy, evident knowledge and infectious sense of humour certainly set her apart.
Thanks a bunch Sally for doing what you do, in the way that you do it."
—Martin Delves / Senior Graphic Designer
"Having Sally takes away so much of the stress of job hunting and I’m so grateful she continued to call me back!
"If you’re looking for a job in the creative industries, you can’t go past Sally Brownbill. I sent my resume in for a job Sally had posted on the Saturday morning. She called 10 am Monday. The first thing you notice about Sally is her zest for life and bubbly enthusiasm; it’s absolutely infectious.
This passion and drive to see you succeed extends across every aspect of the job-hunting process. She’s utterly relentless – in the best possible way. She’s following up with the employer immediately after interviews, keeping you informed at every step. She’s selling you, your skills and your story with authenticity and unswerving belief.
In the process of her landing me a sought-after copywriting job with an award-winning creative agency, I came to think of Sally as my greatest advocate and ally. She thought I was awesome, plain and simple. And until I signed on the dotted line, she never for a moment let my prospective employer forget this fact. I feel a great affection for Sally after what we went through together, and I recommend her to creative job seekers without reservation. Looking for the next step in a fulfilling career? Do yourself a favour: call Sally Brownbill."

"Sally is an amazing connector. If you're in the creative industries, you need to know her! Sally helped me clearly articulate what I have to offer and was able to get me in front of the right people. I cannot thank TBE enough!"
— Tereza Dizdar, Account Executive
"Sally is always in your corner, whether its advice in general or linking you with amazing opportunities, sally is someone you can trust to always be on your side. And always a pleasure to deal with!"
— Declan Cox, Graphic Designer
"From Day one, Sally and I spoke the same language about workplaces. It’s not just about finding the right work, it’s about finding the right fit. And Sally cut through all of the noise, the stress and the worry that is entailed in job hunting and found me the right fit. I’ve always wanted to work in a creative studio with challenging work, great people and great work/life balance and for a while there, I didn’t think I would find anything…until Sally came along. I’m so grateful for all that she’s done to help me find the right fit!"
"Sally genuinely cares about her candidates; she always makes sure that the opportunities she provides are the right fit. She keeps you constantly in the loop and is always available for advice or updates. She is very caring and honest in her approach, something that can be rare to find. Working with Sally has been a pleasure and I cannot recommend her enough."
Sally came and helped me in my hour of need. She slips into my list of heroes in between Batman and Spiderman. When all hope was lost and the reality of being stuck in a job that was going nowhere set in, she reached out her hand and pulled me out the rubble which was my dying career and rescued me.
I can’t thank her enough for believing in me and finding me the perfect gig!
Michael Gonzalez Designer
“I have always been cynical of recruiters until I met Sally, and realised she came with industry experience and intuition that provided two candidates I hired immediately. I cannot recommend TBE enough, not only for their efficiency and professionalism but their impressive industry network and ability to select the perfect candidate for the role and the company they are working with.”
"Sally was the perfect tour guide in the journey that was starting a career. She provides wisdom and support the whole way and carefully works to make sure you and the job are a match. Sally was the best possible support for a fresh graduate."
"I also can't stop saying how thankful I am for all of your help. You're a legend."
"There is no one quite like Sally Brownbill! She is extremely personable, caring and is amazing at what she does (seriously). Sally contacted me out of the blue for a role I didn't even know I wanted and couldn't be happier. I highly recommend her services as they go above and beyond!"
"I still recall my very first phone conversation with Sally - it was full of warmth, positive energy, good laughs, and most importantly, she had my back from the get go. (Meeting her in person over coffee was no different, of course!)
Sally always kept me in the loop - our multiple phone calls, voicemails and email trails are a testament to how she makes herself available and approachable to anyone at all. At times, it was even during her time away! I went on a journey with Sally, from a few freelancing jobs to a full-time role that:
- Seemed to be made for me; and
- I am in love with. What a wonderful journey it was!
I am very appreciative of Sally, and will always be grateful that our paths crossed the way it did. Thank you Sally, from the bottom of my heart. Cheers to Sally and the team at The Brownbill Effect!"

"It was so refreshing and inspiring to have someone who is so nurturing and personable essentially taking care of your career. Sally really saw value and worth in me and she encouraged and emboldened me to take that next step."
"Sally has been an integral part of where my assisting is today. Providing pathways to build relations with new photographers and studios. Building my connections and broadening my scope in the assisting field."

"The Brownbill Effect says what it does on the box- it didn't take much time after my consultation with Sally to get more jobs coming in. TBE has absolutely made a difference to how I find work, and the network has been very valuable to me."
"I met Sally at an Alumni folio review night at CATC Design school in Melbourne, where Sally was participating in a ‘folio review: speed dating style’ event setup by the school.
Students had the chance to engage in a 10 minute 1 on 1 folio review with industry professionals and I was heavily encouraged to participate by a lecture of mine Patrick Rodriguez.
10 minutes was no where near enough time to get solid advice in my opinion, but Sally not only gave some very concise, thought clearing advice, but also an offer to join TBE as an assistant.
Since joining at the end of 2016 I have assisted 3 TBE photographers and have regular work with Andrew Richey & Ripe Studios. This work has advanced my knowledge of studio photography and lighting greatly, but also the little things which are hard to teach such as working with clients, problem solving in tough situations and the finer points of fashion and architectural photography.
So far my experience with TBE has been wonderful and I look forward to what the future has in store for me.”
“Sally is an absolute gem! Her on-going support and care helped me to find a full-time job in no time. If you are after someone with many connections and a heart of gold, you have come to the right place!”
