Since 1946, our staff have taken fresh thinking and an innovative approach to lead in a constantly changing world.

PERSOLKELLY brings together the legacy and experience of four organisations that shaped the staffing landscape over the past century: Kelly Services, who pioneered the modern temporary help industry in 1946; SKILLED, who crafted the staffing industry in Australia in 1964; Programmed, the leading provider of operations and maintenance services across Australia and New Zealand; and PERSOLKELLY, the largest workforce solutions provider in APAC.

Having solved business challenges across Australia and New Zealand in STEM, Government, Professional Services, ICT, Management and Executive staffing, we’ve leveraged our learning and insights to deliver greater value for our clients.
