Our Team & Story


As experienced business owners and leaders, we’ve known the frustrations of what it takes to find the right people for your team. We’ve taken the triumphs, trials and tribulations of our years of experience in building and sustaining great teams, and poured that into Nect, to help other busy managers just like us.


Jamie Shaw

Jamie Shaw
B. Comms

At 21, Jamie skipped the corporate world’s normal rites of passage and started a retail store for street clothing. He became extremely interested in consumer behaviour and social dynamics and applied this when growing his business to three stores, and went on to design his own label which sold across Australia and the world.

Jamie has since been involved in manufacturing, home automation and healthcare in a diverse and successful career. Most recently, he moved into hospitality, as one of the original “Three Amigos” of Zambrero, establishing successful quick service restaurants in Sydney and Perth.

Jamie recognised that recruitment is one of his biggest challenges in the hospitality, retail and healthcare sectors. As such, Jamie developed a passion to change the way these industries recruit, and the vision of Nect was born.
