The Hume Scope Story

In early 2020, we joined forces to run a 'one time course' teaching Recruiters how to adopt modern Business Development practices, and it sold out in 24 hours.

So we ran it again… and again… and then thought it was probably time to make things official. In December 2020, Hume Scope was born. Over the past few years, we have had the pleasure to work with Australia’s leading boutique recruitment agencies providing training, advisory and free resources to support recruiters at every stage of their career.

We share a desire to constantly challenge the status quo of traditional and stale recruitment practices. We love the wonderful and slightly crazy world of agency recruitment, and it’s our mission to make you love it too! To date, we have trained over 1000 recruitment professionals on paid courses across Australia and NZ!

We operate based on the following


We challenge the dog eat dog culture in recruitment and look to build a community of like minded recruiters who want to succeed


Whether you work with us via our paid courses or devour our free resources, our focus is always on providing value


There is no point delivering training that can't be implemented. We thrive on providing training that actually creates long lasting change
