DukeMed founder says it’s all about the personal touch

Richard Duke, founder of DukeMed, grew up in Northern Ireland, without knowing what his future held. But from the time he was halfway through his university degree course in Leeds, he knew he wanted to be a recruiter. Everything he did from then on was with recruiting in mind.

In the workforce, he hit the area of MedTech recruiting, and learnt fast on the job. Then Australia beckoned. Richard flew with his wife to Sydney, where he set up a medical device section for a growing local executive recruitment company, which served his interests well for many years.

That role provided Richard with the long-term ambition to start DukeMed.

But Richard had some sports and outdoor action to get out of his system first, among them Enduro mountain bike racing in France, Italy, New Zealand, and lastly, Chile.

That was followed later by a 70-day overland camping trip during Covid through outback Queensland, the 'Top End' and the Gulf.

Then it was time to set up DukeMed. Richard’s passion for MedTech recruitment and with his passion of mountain biking, fitness and outdoors, gave his life an important balance, combined with the joy of growing his family.

Of recruiting, Richard says, “Recruiting should be personal; it should be tailored and not just go through the motions in a transactional manner.”

And that’s just what you get with DukeMed. The personal touch – all the way.
