About Nostos Search

Authenticity. Simplicity. Creativity.

Nostos Search

Nostos Search was created in 2020 as we recognised a gap in between the management and executive market recruitment capability. Nostos focuses on the role levels too senior for traditional Recruitment Agencies, but below those of the large, traditional Executive Search firms.

Nostos Search looks to combine the simplicity and flexibility of the Agency environment with the specialism and thoroughness of an Executive search method, to bring a solution to clients that truly suits their requirements.

We operate across Australia and have also successfully filled multiple remotely run briefs.

We stay true to our values of Authenticity, Simplicity and Creativity.
