Lee Shorter

Practice Manager, Design & Technology | Australia
Phone: 02 8288 8288


I have the great pleasure of leading Aquent's Design and Technology recruitment team in Australia, helping my team to devise sales and recruitment strategies aimed at building on their candidate and client networks. My day-to-day involves coaching and mentorship, devising strategies for team and individual growth, identifying new business opportunities and implementing effective recruitment processes. Originally from London, I started my career in advertising working with media agencies and corporate clients to manage Out of Home campaigns across the UK, before relocating to Sydney and entering the world of recruitment. Initially representing a boutique agency servicing the financial services sector, my passion for the digital and creative industries led me to join Aquent, a global leader in providing digital marketing, creative and development talent. Outside of work you'll find me watching or playing football (proper football, that you play with your feet) or binge-watching documentaries on Netflix.


“It has been a pleasure working with Lee over the past 3 years for hiring. Lee is always professional in his approach and is a true partner on our many requests/ initiatives. He provides prompt advice when requested and handles sensitive matters with diligence. Candidates are carefully selected for a company fit rather than providing long shortlists. Thank you, Lee!”


“Lee is a fantastic listener who gets the brief right every time. He placed a lot of people at my company and came over to visit to ensure it was all going smoothly – I've never known a recruiter to be so sharp, so organised and so brilliant at their job.”
