Meet our Founding Monks

Initially starting their career in a faraway land known as the United Kingdom; both Neil Brand and Craig Radford established their careers in similar, yet unique ways. Neil started his career as a B2B sales professional within the recruitment industry, focusing on the Microsoft Dynamics AX, NAV and CRM space. Whereas Craig established his career as a sales professional working within the IT industry for leading IT vendors, distributors and resellers.

Despite countless career success, Craig and Neil hoped for more; and no, we don’t mean Neil’s dream to become an English Premier League superstar, or Craig’s ambition to improve his entry level golf game. Instead, Neil and Craig harnessed their strength and power, leaving everything behind in order to move to Australia; which then lead to the creation of Digital Monk International, a unique recruitment consultancy focused on Microsoft Dynamics 365 recruitment.

As Neil quickly learnt that business is done rather differently in Australia, and Craig adapted his skill set to the IT recruitment sector; Digital Monk International flourished in the Australian and New Zealand markets; with an ever-expanding client base, offering one of the region’s largest vacancies.

After many years later, you’ll now find Craig providing honest, meaningful and transparent advice to our clients and the best Dynamics 365 talent in the market; whilst Neil continues to network with industry leading Dynamics 365 professionals.

For me, I am very passionate about this market.

I have seen the platform come a long way in the last few years; and truly believe now is a very exciting time to be involved with Microsoft Dynamics 365. Our objective at Digital Monk International is simple; we aim to continue our support for the deployment and growth of the Microsoft Dynamics 365 portfolio, by providing skilled professionals to the most suitable projects in need

I was making a career move and was searching for the right opportunity in the ANZ region when Neil got in touch with me. In the very first conversation I had with him; I was impressed by the depth of questions he was asking me, especially on MS Dynamics. I understood that he was trying to get a good grasp of my background to find the right opportunities for me. He quickly went about informing me of different opportunities to the extent that he knew what version, flavor of MS Dynamics was being used at different organisations!! I was speaking with a very informed person who has done enough due diligence and become an expert in his area. I would truly recommend anyone in the MS Dynamics area to reach out to Neil because he will make the effort to understand your background and use his expertise to give you the right solution. Thanks so much, Neil!

Neil worked with me to recruit several positions both contract and permanent positions. I have found Neil to be very professional, first starting with gathering the requirements for the positions and then presenting 2 or 3 candidates which typically well qualified. Neil placed a few very valuable permanent positions which I believe will be at Interactive for a number of years and already have made a significant contribution. I would not hesitate to recommend Neil particularly in the Dynamics F&O space although Neil did also place someone outside of this space (Inventory Planner) who was a good fit.

I've known Craig for approximately 6 years and during this time Craig has demonstrated a very good understanding of what I personally look for as a candidate as well as when I'm looking to contract consultants for my own projects. Craig has an extensive network and takes the time to really understand each of their strengths and weaknesses. Therefore when I engage with Craig I have confidence that he is not only open and honest about the prospective candidate or employer, but that he is doing the right thing by me. Craig understands the meaning of working collaboratively for the long term and engages as such. I recommend Craig for both helping you get the job you're after as well as getting you the right consultants for your projects.

I’ve worked with Craig over the years and he has been one of my main point of contacts as a recruitment partner when we’ve looked for exceptional talent with hard to find skills (especially in the Dynamics CRM space). Craig is well connected, time and again he would introduce talent in a highly competitive market. Craig also adapted well to on-going changes in requirements and processes to ensure we received a high level of service, not just from him but his entire team. I highly recommend Craig to candidates and clients alike.
