Our History

Chandler was founded in 1991

Founded in 1991 by Richard Chandler and Marc Rawnsley, Chandler Recruitment specialised in permanent and temporary staffing for manufacturing, transport, logistics, and food industries. This original company exists as Chandler Services (our specialist labour hire division) and Chandler Recruitment (for permanent recruitment).

Chandler Health

Chandler Services has formed as the result of an amalgamation of several organisations in 2014. Providing a range of services to small local companies and large multi-nationals, Chandler is a dynamic and vibrant company that can grow and change according to our clients’ needs.

Chandler Health now serves as an industry-leading dental and nursing agency in Melbourne and surrounds.
