About IPA

IPA was established in Melbourne as Independent Personnel Associates in 1984. Since then we've grown to 80+ employees across 10 locations around Australia. Our head office is in Melbourne, Victoria. 

IPA is driven by purpose and we’ve been supporting Australian employers by providing expert temporary, permanent, labour hire and diversity & inclusion recruitment services to small, medium and large organisations across Australia. 

We support our candidates throughout their entire career from entry level roles to middle management positions, all the way through to senior level C-suite opportunities. 

We work across a range of sectors and industries including administration, office support, construction, engineering, manufacturing, production, transport and logistics.

With thousands of our people going to work each day, keeping them safe at work is our number one priority.  We are passionate about safety and we are dedicated to being All Safe, All the Time.

IPA is a certified social trader where 100% of our profits go to our parent company genU to support people with a disability and people from disadvantaged backgrounds. 

You will find our dedicated and experienced teams in branches throughout Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland, Western Australia and South Australia.
