Looking for staff?

Madison Recruitment was founded in 1998 to do business differently in the recruitment industry. The underlying premise was simply, “to be good to do business with”. Employers needed a local provider who could customise according to their particular needs, deliver with pace and do so with personality.

20 years on, we have grown to over 100 staff across 5 cities and are now part of the AWF Madison Group – the largest recruitment company in the country (and the only recruiter listed on the NZX). Our vision of “delivering the right people with care, energy and innovation” has built an award winning company.

We would relish the opportunity to do “the hard yards” and demonstrate why we are good to do business with.

Permanent Staffing

You need to be able to trust us to identify the best candidate in the market to fill your role while you get on and run your business. Our Consultants can either manage the entire search and selection process, or assist with any piece of the process (unbundled recruitment). We’ll ensure we match the role to a select group of carefully screened and qualified candidates. We know that mistakes in selection can be very costly. Our process is adapted according to your needs including customisation of skills and psychometric testing, structured behavioural interviewing, reference checking and other specific recruitment tools. Close and regular communication is maintained throughout the process.

Temporary Staffing

Across the country we have hundreds of temps working at any one time. We can provide your organisation with temporary staff for as long or as short as you need; we can supply you with one person or with many. We manage the employment relationship, keeping you informed at all times.

You can be assured that all our temporary staff have been reference checked with at least two previous employers and have signed full declarations regarding their health status, criminal convictions and residency status. Office based temporary staff are skills tested, protecting you from becoming a "training ground" for inexperienced people. For industrial temps, ACC and health and safety protocols necessitates a specialist approach.

Contractor Resourcing

Sometimes your organisation's workload or new project requires specialist expertise. We help you to scope the requirements so that we can engage the right professional. Contractors are vetted as well, ensuring that they have exactly the right skill set, a reputation for excellent delivery, and also have the appropriate insurance.

Managed Service Solutions

With the backing of local resources and an unmatched reach of NZ contingent workers, we provide agile and scalable contingent workforce management solutions. Our key differentiator is the retention of high performers within our network during your troughs, so that there is a continuation of knowledge and capability to meet your future demand.

As your business partner, there may be more that we can help with other than pure recruitment services. Getting involved in the big picture, we assist clients to achieve key organisational development goals.

How we recruit

We're not just going to flick you CVs. Whatever your industry, whether it is an entry level or C-suite position, our aim is to minimise your hiring risk, save you time and get to know your business. We want to understand the skill sets and experience that drive your workforce to succeed.

Our people strive, improve and perfect. We value open and honest communication with you. We believe our industry needs to move forward, and we want to be the ones who push the boundaries and challenge the somewhat low expectations of our profession. Being a partner rather than just a supplier will get the best out of us. Then we won't just recruit, we'll also be an extension of your employer brand. We'll think up the best ways to tell your story and customise our recruitment process in order to attract the right talent.

* In April 2018, Madison's IT specialists joined the team at our sister company Absolute IT. For Information Technology recruitment, we invite you to contact one of their 50 recruitment specialists. We'd also be happy to make the introduction on your behalf.
