Executive and Product & Product Delivery

Steve McCourt

In 2015, I was inspired to start Method Recruitment as there was a clear gap in the market. It needed a recruitment business that could offer greater value. More meaningful relationships with their clients and candidates and a far more in-depth specialism for their consultants. Together with Ben and Greg, I’m now the Co-Founder and Director of Method.


I started my career with selling Technical IT training solutions to large businesses in the UK.  This role enabled me to work with some highly specialist technology specialists as we designed and rolled out bespoke training courses to 1000’s of IT Team members across Europe.  This role provided a very unique opportunity to gain a high-level understanding of how IT departments fitted together and the roles played by each of the members of those teams. It also gave me a really broad overview of how technology fitted together.  With this knowledge, I sought to round out my skillset by moving in to a role that saw me assisting with the design and rollout of training. This was more focussed on “softskills” training, such a Project Management, Business Analysis and Technical Writing. It’s where I found my greatest enjoyment.


Armed with the knowledge, I decided to broaden my horizons with a career move into recruitment. Where I could further engage with PM and BA candidates at a greater level than most recruiters given my background. I now have over 15 years experience of recruiting in this space. Therefore I am highly networked across the Project/Product Delivery markets across Australia.


Outside of work, I have 2 children that take up a lot of my spare time. I enjoy taking them away at the weekend for trips to the coast or to regional Victoria
