Who We Work With


We Believe Other People Matter

So we work with organisations that believe in the same.

We understand that its the people that make things happen in every company. And while it is easy to pay lip service to the philosophy ‘look after your people and they will look after you‘, we also know that organisations sometimes have to make changes. Restructures, coaching, promotions, redundancies and recruitment come and go for every organisation and for the people involved, it means careers can go up and down. And it happens to all of us.

At NOVA Partners we believe that every person deserves to be treated with respect and given every chance to succeed. So whether they need to move into an executive role, require coaching, personal development, career advice or a career transition, it is in everybody’s long term interest to ensure they receive advice, coaching and development that is individually tailored to their particular needs so they have the best opportunity to succeed in their next role.

Our services give you precisely what you need to achieve the best outcome for your staff. And that makes everybody happy.

What Others Think Of Us

We’d love to work together, but how do you know if we are right for you? These are some of the people we have worked with, and what they think of us.

“I have worked with NOVA Partners, Liz Crowe and her wonderful support services for the last decade. I cannot rate their services more highly. They always provide support with care, integrity and innovation, meeting the needs of individual clients and maintaining excellent communications and reporting. I recommend NOVA Partners to you.”

Marilyn Smith, Head of HR Australasia, Brookfield Asset Management

“I have known Michael Crowe professionally for 30 years, and have engaged him to undertake a range of executive and professional search and recruitment roles. On each occasion, the service and outcomes were first class; Michael is driven to be a proactive partner and communicates and adds value in the process. The people he helped source and we hired, have remained within the group. Many were promoted and this validates his quality and care for getting the right fit. Equally, he provides outstanding advice on the wider market and has recommended to myself and others I know, areas to work on in developing our own career. I recommend him to any person seeking a recruitment partner level service model.”

John Rogers, CEO Strategy and Operations, Wilson Group

“ I can highly recommend NOVA Partners for career transition, career coaching and outplacement support services. I have had the pleasure of knowing & working with Liz Crowe in a professional capacity for over 20 years and believe she is the best in the business.”

Natasha Bakker, Executive Manager - HR, Melbourne Cricket Club
