Our History

Founded  in 2011  by Billy  Ferreira  and Paul  Goldfinch,  The  GO2  People began  life as  GO2 Recruitment Pty Ltd as Trustee for the GO2 Recruitment trust, a recruitment business based in  Western  Australia  specialising  in  the  provision  of  temporary  staffing  solutions  to  the construction  and  mining  industries.

Setting  a  long-term goal  to  become  a  diverse  national organisation. GO2 Recruitment secured some of the best talent in the industry and set about building  the  foundations  of  the  business  and  creating  a culture  based  on  accountability, integrity and quality outcomes for all stakeholders.

GO2  Recruitment  opened  its  doors  in  Perth,  Western  Australia  for  the  first  time  on September 12th, 2011. As a start-up business with no brand presence in Western Australia, GO2  Recruitment  executed  its  business  plan  with  a  strong focus  on  high  quality,  solution based  service  delivery.  As  a  result,  the  brand  and  reputation  grew  quickly  and,  having achieved key milestones, GO2 Recruitment opened its first office in Brisbane, Queensland in September 2012, to begin moving  towards establishinga genuine national footprint.

In  2014  after  identifying  the  need  to  diversify  and  capitalise  on  the  skill  sets  within  the business,  a  building  division  was  started,  known  as  GO2  Building.  Whilst  creating  an additional  revenue  stream  and  spreading  risk  across  the  business,  the  main  aim  was  to create  vertical  integration  between  the  recruitment  and  building  divisions.

GO2  Building focused   on  developing  alternative   construction   methods   which   would   see   residential dwellings  delivered  quickly  and  affordably  without  compromising  quality.  As  a  result,  GO2 Building  delivered  multiple  projects  in  the  Over  55’s  independent  living  sector.  It  also developed  strong  supply  partnerships  and  relationships  with  project  builders  and  land developers whilst providing the opportunity to develop the GO2 ‘rapid building method’.

GO2  Recruitment  had  secured  multiple  preferred  supplier  contracts  by  2015  and  were partnering  some  of  Australia’s  best-known  construction  companies  and  businesses,  to deliver  a  number  of  major  construction  and  infrastructure  projects  throughout  Western Australia  and Queensland. In early 2015 a third office was opened on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland  on  the  back  of  winning a  major  labour  supply contract  on the  Sunshine  Coast University hospital.

In mid-2016 it was decided to take the Company to an IPO, in order for the company to continue its growth trajectory and fulfil its true potential. GO2 invested heavily in preparation for this, adding a Board of Directors, key executives and upgrading its operating and financial systems. On October 31st 2017, GO2 proudly listed on the Australian Securities Exchange as The GO2 People Ltd (ASX:GO2).

The decision was justified with the opening of recruitment offices in New South Wales and Victoria in 2018, increasing the Company’s geographical presence. In addition, the execution of key construction contracts through the building division has seen it grow tenfold.

As it stands today, the Company is well positioned to continue its growth journey and has plans for further diversification.
