Mercury Group of Companies is a leader in workforce management software, online HR solutions and risk management. We are wholly Australian owned and operated, based in Melbourne with a team of over 50 in-house workforce software specialists. One of Mercury’s workforce management products fit2work specialises in Police Checks.

Our E-Recruitment and HR Solution Systems combine into our online Mercury HR Platform, a seamless end-to-end workforce management software solution encompassing the entire employment cycle from online e-recruitment, on-boarding, background & police checking, identity verification, credentialing and performance management – all streamlined into one formidable, state of the art HRIS.

    Managing Director

    John Anastasiou is the founder and Managing Director of the Mercury Group of Companies. 

    After a career in the commercial arena with organisations including Telstra, Metropolitan Transit, Honda and Mazda, John began consulting to the health and Local Government sectors.  He identified a gap when it came to the ‘human factor’ across the industry and started Mercury, a niche recruitment company with a focus on performance and innovation. The company then developed a software development division which provided solutions, which were primarily driven by Mercury’s clients. Since that time John has worked with numerous Boards of Management to facilitate business strategy, planning and execution.

    John holds a Bachelor of Behavioural Science, Honours in Applied Psychology, post graduate studies in Human Resources and Industrial Relations and a Master of Business.  He has also held senior academic positions and sat on the Boards of a number of Not for Profit and aged care organisations.

Implementing Mercury Recruit has considerably decreased the end-to-end cycle time for recruitment, removing a significant amount of administration work.

Moreover, Mercury Recruit also helps us to ensure that all applicants complete the declarations and are willing to undertake checks to comply with legislative and policy requirements of Monash Health, including police checks.
