Women in Business – Danni Lopez, your local McDowall Head Hunter

Women in Business

I’m always intrigued to find out how businesses are born and this week’s feature is about a woman with a heart of gold who saw a need in the community and decided it needed to be filled.

Danni Lopez owns and runs Coral Recruitment Solutions.

After many years recruiting for large corporations and government departments, Danni saw a need for a recruitment service that was more accessible to smaller businesses who needed to take people on but either didn’t have the budget, the time or the expertise to do this effectively.

Danni made the decision to be based locally in McDowall so that she could really focus on and get to know her local area and the wide variety of businesses in the community. As a small business, she understands the many challenges that business face when it comes to finding and recruiting staff.

Since Coral Recruitment Solutions started Danni has worked closely with many businesses in the area as well as some interstate to help them build their teams. Coral has been growing mainly due to word of mouth which is a great testament to her business.

Coral Recruitment Solutions exists to help businesses find staff. Danni offers a number of solutions for business owners and managers – whether that’s conducting an advertising campaign or going out and searching for the right person, or something in between.

They see themselves as an alternative to traditional recruitment agencies and they can provide the expertise without the hefty price tag. Coral Recruitment Solutions model is based on a fee for service rather than an expensive candidate placement fee so they are never chasing commissions. Their focus is always to help their clients find the best people for their team.

Danni loves being a Northside business and the great sense of community here where everyone wants to help each other out. There is also a thriving economy and it’s great to get to know the different businesses and be part of their growth. It also means that she can provide a real personalised service, something that you don’t always get a chance to do being based in the CBD or working with large corporate or government clients.

Danni gives back to the community in many ways and one has been by taking part in “Year 12 Speed Recruiting” at Earnshaw State College which she found was a great experience to meet some enthusiastic and promising high school leavers.

She also supports Inclusive Volunteering, which is a Mitchelton based not-for-profit organisation who offer job-ready programs for disabled school leavers. She also assists them with providing resume writing, job application, and interview skills workshops.

Danni also has taken part in a number of charity events supporting MS QLD, Ramsey Health Care, and Oxfam.

Danni’s vision for the future is to grow her own team so that she can help more businesses on Brisbane’s north side find great people.

As a kid Danni always wanted to work with animals - so her one wish is to be able to spend some time in Madagascar hanging out with the lemurs!

Coral Recruitment Solutions is a locally owned and operated business that has access to a number of tools to actively source and headhunt candidates. It is run on an affordable flat fee model and Danni can accommodate businesses with any role in any industry. She is hardworking and available Monday to Friday 8.30am-5.30pm to help small businesses with their recruitment needs.
