Until you’ve seen Adelaide Fringe for yourself, it’s hard to imagine the size and impact that the festival has on the city of Adelaide and its people. In just a few short weeks, more than 6,000 performers strut their stuff in theatres, parks, galleries, bars, cafes… in fact, just about every corner of the city you can name.
“We rely upon trusted partners like Robert Walters, who not only support us financially, but also lend us their skills and expertise.”
The buzz around Adelaide is electric, lifting the spirits of locals and tourists who flock in their thousands to enjoy the Fringe’s sights, sounds and tastes. But behind the stage lights and razzle dazzle, other magic is happening too. Communities come together. Children (and adults) learn new things. Businesses prosper. More people find work.
It's for all these reasons, and more, that Robert Walters has been partnering with Adelaide Fringe for several years now. As Fringe CEO Heather Croall describes it: “Our festival is built upon collaboration and people working together. We rely upon trusted partners like Robert Walters, who not only support us financially, but also lend us their skills and expertise.”
Robert Walters Director for South Australia, Michelle Christie, says the Fringe partnership is a natural fit. “Perhaps more than any other festival, the Fringe is really all about personal connections between performers, venues, and audiences. That’s so similar to what we do at Robert Walters. We take the time to listen to employers and professionals, then connect them with opportunities where they can perform at their best.”
According to Heather, the partnership between Adelaide Fringe and Robert Walters has deepened over time. “It’s not just a traditional sponsorship, where a business pays money to splash its brand across a festival and then walks away. Besides financial support, Robert Walters has also helped us find and secure staff who are perfect for Adelaide Fringe. We know better than anyone what a good talent network looks like, and Robert Walters absolutely nails that.”
