John Chesher, Principal
Committed to the recruitment of Leaders in education and faith-based organisations since 1995

Our Principal, John Chesher, founded Trak Search in 1995, although in those days it was known as Trak Executive. We evolved to the Trak Group in 2005 but soon renamed to Trak Search.

People who have experienced our service would attest to it being underpinned by ‘integrity, experience, focus’. We are also known for helping people to transition from commerce to not-for-profit as well as from city to regional and rural areas.

Some people we have worked with

What Our Community Says

  • John was the recruiter for the position of Director of Catholic Education Ballarat. We received outstanding service from John despite many challenges including COVID19. John was always accessible, responsive to our needs and provided excellent advice throughout the process. I highly recommend John for executive recruitment.
    Tracey O’Neill, Chair, Diocese of Ballarat Catholic Education Limited
  • I would particularly highlight the fact that the process used by Trak Search is fair and transparent which is critical when appointing senior staff. Every step is attended to thoroughly. Trak Search also take time to understand the role and the desired organisational outcomes.
    Pam Betts, former Executive Director, Brisbane Catholic Education
  • We engaged Trak Search as my experience as an applicant gave me confidence that the Trak Search model was an excellent one. I found the process highly professional yet easy going. The interaction with applicants is respectful, helpful and consistent with how we wish to operate. John is always available and really listens and responds to the unique circumstances of each project.
    Leonie Keaney, former Executive Director, Good Samaritan Education
  • The whole process was very different from previous positions I have applied for. It was definitely rigorous and perhaps more rigorous than other processes but also much more manageable. I was both surprised and impressed by the rigorous referee checking process. This and the reduced amount of written material needed for the application was quite refreshing.
    Penny Ludicke, Tasmania
  • We used Trak Search again because the service last time was wonderful and we wanted the same experience. We would recommend Trak Search to others because of their sensitive and professional approach; and the ease of working together.
     Helen Delahunty, Archdiocese of Canberra & Goulburn
  • The drip-feed approach makes the process far more authentic. The regular and accessible contact meant the process was very transparent and made me feel very comfortable to continue.
    Matt Kean, Tasmania
  • I was impressed that excessive information was not required as part of the recruitment process​.
    Ross Fox, ​Sydney
  • I was impressed by the good communication; thorough process; and the letter after the appointment with the gift of the book.
    Peter ​Pellicaan, Archdiocese of Brisbane
