The vision behind The Career Agency started more than 15 years ago. Our mission was to help people move forward with confidence through high-impact resume and application support paired with effective career planning and strategy.

Founded originally under the name ‘Career Edge’ by Gillian and Adrian Kelly, the business has since evolved from a boutique private career consultancy into a national company that has helped thousands of individuals across the globe to build financially rewarding and personally satisfying careers.

The Career Agency is the private practice arm of the group, supporting individuals with diverse career solutions. The same team also works as part of the corporate arm of the business – Outplacement Australia, sought out by leading Australian companies to assist their employees with career transition, outplacement and career development.

Meet Gillian Kelly

Capitalise On Your Talents. Unleash Your Potential. Live Your Dream!’ is the mantra that Gillian has brought to life for professionals Australia-wide.

As a passionate marketing specialist, Gillian became frustrated watching talented professionals being overlooked and under-remunerated simply because they didn’t stand out. And so the journey began and Gillian switched her talents to marketing people rather than products. 

Since her early days in marketing Gillian has gone on to be one of the world’s most respected career marketing and resume writing practitioners. As Australia’s foremost Personal Branding Strategist and a Master Resume Writer, her capacity to market her clients through clearly branded resumes saw her become a distinguished recipient of multiple awards in the highly coveted international “Toast of the Resume Industry” Awards.

As an active industry member Gillian’s career advice and work are featured in books and resources globally and as a career sector trend watcher, she is regularly sourced by media as a career topic expert. Gillian is a member of the CDI Resume Writer Certification Panel and is a CDI Ask-an-Expert. She is one of only a handful of recipients of the Master Resume Writer Lifetime Achievement Award, and is a Past Queensland President of the Career Development Association of Australia.

What People Are Saying


“…This is some of the finest work I have ever seen out of one of my colleagues.’ Jill continues to impress me, and the industry at large, with her ability to leverage both the written word and the art of page layout to her clients’ greatest advantage.”

Laura DeCarlo

President, Career Directors International

“…Wow! Now I know why it was a good idea to get this done professionally. I could not have got to this myself. I’m impressed that it’s factual and straight forward, which is the way I like to work. “


Senior Executive

“…After accepting a redundancy, Career Edge worked with me to identify career pathways suitable to my interests and skills while positioning me as a leading candidate for senior roles. I was offered two positions within six weeks and haven’t looked back. “


Training Executive

“…Gillian’s Personal Branding Workshop was one of the highlight sessions of our company’s Professional Development Program and left the room buzzing afterwards. We had to turn the lights on and off to get people to leave… “


“I feel like a different person – much more confident going to interviews. I had an interview today and I think I did really well. They started the interview by explaining the format they wanted the answers in and it was exactly what we worked through, so I was able to do exactly what we practiced. I now understand what employers are looking for when they ask those difficult questions and can now answer them with confidence. “


“…I really like the draft of my resume – you have written it in a modern civilian speak way I never would have been able to produce.”
