Queensland General Manager

Lauren Karan was the Recruiter for our construction project in South - East Queensland. She was responsible for sourcing, identifying, recommending, assisting with interviews and closing out the engagement of successful candidates. Lauren exhibited a highly professional approach to the HR process at all times and I have no hesitation in recommending her.

- Chris Bier | MCCONNELL DOWELLConstruction Manager

It was great dealing with Karan & Co - they were very professional. Lauren made it an easy and enjoyable process. It took the nerves away which made a big difference. The attention to detail with the details provided about the role and company helped me understand the role and who I would be meeting with.

- Kate Southworth | GEORGIOU GROUPHR Advisor

Lauren was a true asset to the Downer IPD Division Talent and Sourcing team; her understanding of our Industry and key role requirements saw her fill our recruitment needs through known contacts and targeted headhunting campaigns. Lauren builds relationships easily and communicates well with her client group. I would recommend Lauren without hesitation to future employers/clients to fulfil your recruitment needs.


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.

The service that Karan & Co provided was fantastic - the coordination, hiring process and communication stood out for me and I would definitely recommend the team at Karan & Co to my colleagues.

- Pradeep Melepat | WINSON GROUPBusiness Development Manager

I couldn't recommend Karan & Co's coaching service highly enough. It taught me to appreciate the new aspects of the role and harness that to excel in the times ahead. I gained a lot from it - Bill was very insightful and understood all aspects of how I was feeling. He gave me a lot of confidence to suggest this would set me up on the right track. Bill is a great asset as he listens and draws what you like, and gets you to harness that in the right way.

She also approaches any redeployment processes with diligence and respect. Lauren is an asset to our business and has played an integral role in the improvement of our recruitment and selection processes.


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.
