Our Team

It’s important to know who you are working with. Let us introduce the team. 

JOEL MARTIN | MANAGING DIRECTOR

After 20 years in recruitment Joel remains passionate about delivering exceptional recruitment outcomes which directly influence his client’s success. His career has centred on identifying, acquiring and developing professionals associated with the Construction and Engineering industry. He is known for his obsession with optimising performance relating to the most valuable business resource, people.

Joel is an authentic communicator, accustomed to the challenges of engaging high calibre individuals and fostering enduring, mutually beneficial relationships. Cutting through and getting real, practical results is the cornerstone of his success.

He loves to help his clients win the war for talent and also create continuous organisational and cultural improvement. His clients appreciate his ability to help them set clear and effective strategy; identify their unique value proposition; enhance brand awareness and drive profitability through people.

Joel is a sports fanatic and a family man attempting to find a balance between businessman, Husband and Father. He is proud of his hometown Redcliffe, so much so he named the company after the Peninsula postcode.

“There’s no one I trust more to source the right people, the right opportunity or offer the right strategic advise.  Will he provide unbiased, realistic and practical advice that can benefit business owners, employers and job seekers? Damn right.”
Anthony Simpson – Infrastructure Advisor

AMY WALDOCK | MARKETING COORDINATOR

Amy is an accomplished professional with valuable skills in Marketing & Communications and Recruitment. Throughout her career she has supported the growth and success of well-known Construction, Engineering and Recruitment businesses. Amy’s creativity, versatility and can-do attitude make her an indispensable team member.

Amy is known for her service ethic and commitment to achieving the best possible outcomes for her colleagues and clients. Stakeholders benefit from Amy’s low fuss, friendly approach and how she positively impacts the people and culture of a company and in turn its growth and sustainability.

Amy enjoys influencing Marketing & Communications strategy and then delivering. She has helped companies develop their capability, bid and general marketing collateral from websites to apparel. She loves to engage with teams to gather meaningful content and then spread the word to increase brand awareness, sales and profitability.

One day she will run a marathon but chasing her son around is currently her only training. When she’s not regaling her colleagues with her knowledge of movies and TV she can be found relaxing in Bayside Brisbane or up the Range in Toowoomba.

MARK PILKINGTON | SENIOR ASSOCIATE

Mark’s recruitment career has spanned over two decades predominantly working within Project Management, Construction and Engineering. Mark is known for going above and beyond normal standards to achieve outstanding results for his clients and candidates. He is supportive, empathetic and committed to contributing to candidate’s career development and the growth of client organisations. 

Mark’s genuine passion for recruitment means he treats each assignment with enthusiasm and care resulting in positive, enduring relationships with all stakeholders.

“Recruitment is more than just a job. Each assignment involves critical decisions that deeply impact people’s lives and businesses. This motivates me to handle all stages of the process with consideration and professionalism.”

Mark is a father to four teenage daughters, so it’s fair to say life on the home front is hectic. Aside from the ladies of his life, sport is his passion having competed at representative level in Rugby Union as well as fighting in the Queensland and Australian mixed martial arts titles.

JANA LANIGAN | SENIOR ASSOCIATE – HUMAN RESOURCES

Jana is a true all-round Human Resources professional with over two decades of experience and a thorough understanding and capability across all facets of the craft. As a generalist, her experience includes setting up and managing the whole HR function on major construction projects, within professional services firms and in call centres with over a thousand of staff. Jana is adept at assessing workplace staff, operations and HR activities to allow her to make appropriate recommendations for HR systems and initiatives. She is adaptable and shifts with the requirements of a business, content to roll up her sleeves and personally oversee recruitment drives, performance management, office closures and redundancies, you name it Jana has managed it.

Jana is passionate about people and balancing their needs and wellbeing with the goals of a business to ensure positive outcomes for all. She is accustomed to calmly delivering best practice solutions in intense, high pressure environments often while others lose their cool. This attribute allows her to add tremendous value when it comes to conflict resolution and mediation as she is proficient at managing sensitive topics with diplomacy and empathy. Jana’s well-established commercial acumen allows her to overcome problems that arise by pragmatically finding solutions and seeing them through to implementation. 

Jana is a loving mum to two adult daughters and is really into sport (like really), especially AFL.  When she gets the chance, she loves to cook, read or spend time with family and friends. It’s a pretty happy existence!  Some might say her only downfall is that she is a mad Richmond supporter – mad was her word not ours. But now they are winning all the time she doesn’t seem so mad after all…

 

SHARON WOOD | SENIOR ASSOCIATE

We like to joke that Sharon has forgotten more about recruitment, than many of us will ever learn. 

With extensive end to end recruitment experience working across a myriad of industry sectors including Mining, Engineering, Minerals Processing and Construction, the breadth and depth of Sharon’s recruitment and HR experience means she has a strong grasp of best practice and adds exceptional value for clients and candidates.

Having worked for market leading organisations, Sharon’s experience and wisdom allow her to efficiently manage complex, challenging and sometimes confronting issues. Sharon focusses on developing respectful and honest relationships to ensure a seamless and rewarding experience for all involved.

Away from the office, Sharon adores spending time with her grandson, and her puppy. In her spare time, Sharon is likely to be planning her next trip or devouring a book, with said puppy close by. Sharon loves dining out and sharing a bottle of wine with her partner but she isn’t a sweet tooth (i.e. don’t thank her with chocolates!).

SARAH MARTIN | OPERATIONS & RESEARCH

After a laborious, protracted and at times combative negotiation, Sarah relented and joined 4020 Consult in 2019. Her remit is to manage the business’ pursuit of operational excellence and to ensure our clients and candidates receive exceptional service. At the request of clients, Sarah readily draws on her experience to undertake detailed research assignments that map projects, candidates and opportunities.     

With a strong career foundation in recruitment, Sarah succeeded in a range of internal and external roles focussed on Engineering, Construction and IT industries. Following this, Sarah spent a decade working with the Federal Government in roles that required thorough research, in depth analysis and extensive liaison with wide ranging levels of government and community. 

Away from the office, Sarah is happiest being outside with the kids, or watching some mindless TV.  If she can sneak away from the family, Sarah loves a spot of gardening and is trying her best to implement sustainable practices into her home.
