Welcome to Karan & Co

Hiring the right people to

scale grow develop your business.


We help growing businesses in the engineering, mining and technical markets by saving them time, money and relieving their stress around resourcing requirements.

We do this through bringing an experienced team of specialist recruiters together to partner with a select group or clients that share the same values we do. Between our team we have over 50 years recruiting experience and are highly skilled at what we do.

We promote leadership, culture and personal growth through our podcast and we work diligently on that for the people we place into roles. We are their trusted advisors.

We provide value, partnership and unbeatable service in our industries offering monthly packages and executive search with onboarding coaching.

We do this to demonstrate we believe in going the extra mile for your business. We know when we go the extra mile we will be finding you people that will go the extra mile for your business too.

We are a talent partner for your resourcing.

We are Karan & Co.

An agency that really stands out from the crowd, absolute leaps and bounds above everyone else. Working with Lauren throughout the initial interviewing process was authentic, honest and not a sales pitch. Their team are amazing, have great communication and I really enjoy working with them. I had two job offers; Lauren had a very real conversation with me about what role would be a better fit for me. She did not approach it in a way to convince me to take her position, so she got a placement. She cared about what would be best for me.

Karan & Co really allocate people to our business that are best aligned to our business. Unlike the others, Karan & Co invest the time to really understand the culture of my business, and that has brought people on board that are reflecting what we want to do. Lauren's personal attributes have been spread across the business as its grown, so it's really great to see that it's not just that one person - it's the entire team that work that way.

Karan & Co were fantastic and understood what I was looking for. They were patient in finding me the right role and understood some of the challenges I’ve faced in the past as being a female in the male dominated industry. Karan & Co value the importance of family and didn’t push to me make a quick placement. They understood it was about finding the right placement that would suit me.
