With more than 20 years’ experience in the workforce solutions industry, Charles’ experience spans across economics, advocacy, risk management, lobbying, compliance and professional standards.
Before taking on the role of Chief Executive, Charles was an equity Partner with FCB, Australia’s largest dedicated workplace legal and consulting firm, prior to which he founded and grew his own consulting firm which specialised in lobbying and risk management within the recruitment and employment services industry. He gained invaluable experience working with IPA, one of Australia’s most established recruitment firms, where he was the Workplace Relations and Safety Manager as well as 7 years working as an Advisor and Advocate for Australian Industry Group. In addition to his successful professional services career, he founded a tech start up in 2006, which continues to successfully service the recruitment market today.
Charles joined the RCSA as Chief Executive in May 2016, and since that time has established the foundations for an employment services certification scheme which will define professional service providers within the marketplace in Australia and New Zealand for years to come.
