Melanie Silburn heads up Verve Partners Wollongong
Press Release

A new leader for Verve Partners Wollongong

We are thrilled to announce Melanie Silburn as a minor shareholder in Verve Partners’ Wollongong office.

We are thrilled to announce Melanie Silburn as a minor shareholder in Verve Partners’ Wollongong office. Melanie has been with the business for more than 18 months, bringing with her 18+ years of experience with boutique and Tier One agencies. She was recently promoted to Regional Recruitment Manager and is leading our expansion in the Illawarra region.

Unmatched recruitment experience

With a focus on partnership and a commitment to personalised recruitment solutions, Verve Partners aims to differentiate itself in the market by providing a tailored approach to meet the unique needs of each client.

It’s why, Melanie says, she was drawn to join the business and then champion its growth.

“The thing I love about Verve Partners is that we are all seasoned consultants. We have backgrounds in Tier One agencies, where the priority was often not the relationship but getting the deal across the line. Verve Partners is the complete opposite; it’s not about us, it’s about you.”

“We don’t cookie cut; we get to know you. We want to come to your offices and be an extension of your team. This is something that’s currently missing in the Wollongong market.”

Wollongong partnerships

Melanie says passion and partnerships are palpable when you meet the directors.

“The leadership team [Clare, Simon, and Krystle] are passionate about building relationships and ones with longevity. You can feel their passion for recruitment and doing it well. It’s a privilege to work with people that you respect so much, and that do so much for the industry.” 

By aligning herself with a passionate team that values long-term partnerships, Melanie aims to provide an exceptional recruitment experience to businesses as part of Verve Partners Wollongong.

Local presence and community investment

Wollongong is home for Melanie. Her addition as a shareholder brings excitement and a firm tie to the local community.

“Community is a core value of Verve Partners. We want to give back and we are inherently invested in our community and the businesses that operate there. We are looking forward to partnerships with charities, community initiatives and local businesses with the aim of making a positive impact.”

Verve Partners is a member of Illawarra Women in Business, and Melanie is on the committee for the Illawarra Stingrays.

Ambitions for growth

Based at the Innovation Campus, located close to town, Verve Partners’ offices provide a dynamic workspace equipped for growth and collaboration. With plans to hold informative seminars in the future, the company aims to establish a strong presence and further contribute to the professional development of the local business community.
