Stay compliant and thrive with help from a team of Hawkeyes
Meet Our Team
The Hawkeye team brings together a bunch of people that some might call crazy. Why? Because we love compliance so much that we find it fun. At Hawkeye, we take your compliance problems or worries and turn them into solutions. Our passion is to inspire you to improve your compliance performance.
And while we recommend a proactive approach to compliance, we’re the team who will be there for you when you need it. We’re known for doing whatever it takes to help you: being there at the last minute, on the night before your audit, or to help you deal with complex challenges. Whether you’d like to proactively plan, or need help dealing with an issue, find out more about what we can do for your RTO:

She has been teaching Hospitality to International Students for the last few years and has always found joy in sharing her knowledge of the industry. Milka is actively involved in the development of training resources, validation, compliance and supporting our clients with everything VET. Her passion is art and she loves finding creative ways to assist our clients.
Shanae holds her Certificate III in Business and is currently studying her Certificate IV in Leadership and Management to improve her 3 years of industry experience in the VET sector.

Meet our founders
The story of Hawkeye begins with our founders: twin sisters Katya and Alicia Holker.
They grew up in Wexford, Ireland, and took separate paths for a couple of years after finishing school. Alicia decided to move across the world to Australia, with Katya joining her later.
That’s when they both worked for their first RTO and developed a shared passion for the VET sector and philosophy that “education is the stepping stone to success”.
Continuing with their VET careers in operational, strategic and compliance roles, they became known for their ‘hawk’s eye’ level of attention to detail. This brought them more work with requests for auditing and consulting services from other RTOs.
After seeing success with their own clients with the value that they offered, Alicia and Katya decided to set up something that was their own. That’s when Hawkeye Consultancy was born. The name was chosen as a nod to their superpowers and to salute past colleagues who supported them and gave them their moniker.
Since its inception in 2017, our growing team at Hawkeye Consultancy has gained a reputation for a fresh approach to compliance and results. We believe that everyone, everywhere, should have the right to an education to fulfil their potential.
