Claire MurphyPrincipal Consultant - Interim and Contracting


My expertise and focus is on recruiting contract HR roles in the region of $85K to 150k.

I really enjoy partnering with multiple organisations across Sydney, assisting them with their recruitment process & introducing them to the top talent on the market. I am passionate about helping & guiding junior candidates on their career path and placing them in their next contract position! I look after temporary positions and fixed term contract positions at Peoplecorp.


I have been recruiting within the Sydney market for 2 and a half years now. I genuinely thrive on spending time with clients and candidates, gaining an understanding of their needs which enables me to deliver the best possible service. I am passionate about people & my communication skills are second to none. Being organised and efficient is a huge part of my role and through my previous experience working recruiting within the Sydney market, I understand the urgency and importance of having reliable and hardworking people in the workplace. I pride myself on being a consultant who is easy to work with and determined to find you the best candidates on the market.

I completed my Bachelor of Communications at the National University of Galway, Ireland. I started my corporate career in Events and the Airline Industry but then moved to a large global recruitment agency having discovered my passion for recruitment. From there I moved to Peoplecorp so I could work in a specialist business.


I’m originally from Ireland and I left Dublin several years ago, I spent two years in living in Dubai & I have travelled to several different countries before settling in Sydney!

When I am not speaking to the best talent in Sydney, I enjoy running and swimming in the afternoons.
