doing good

We maintain strong links with, and support, our wider community – making a positive impact is something that is very important to us.

Decipher Group are proud supporters of Māia Health Foundation and Cholmondeley Children’s Centre, contributing much needed fundraising and volunteer support to help make a real difference. In addition, we provide sponsorship and pro bono contributions to various community and sporting groups as well as enabling our team to share their expertise and strengthen the nation’s workforce by investing up to 10 hours a month to provide free career development advice, leadership coaching and recruitment support to graduates and senior professionals, looking to enhance their career prospects.

As part of our commitment to supporting our local communities and climate – we’re paying it forward! On behalf of our valued clients, for every candidate our team help place, we donate to Trees That Count, which means a native tree is planted in Aotearoa New Zealand.

By funding native trees, we’re seeking to absorb CO2 emissions over 50 years as those trees continue to grow. That’s good for our carbon footprint, and good for Aotearoa.

Our commitment
to DEI

Our success as a business is inextricably linked to people – from our two entrepreneurial co-founders and motivated team, through to the clients and candidates that are part of our broader community. As both individuals and a business, we value and support genuine and impactful diversity and inclusion practice.

We know that building diverse workplaces is an important priority for our clients. Our team utilise the very best digital recruitment technology currently available; smart automation and AI in our systems includes a suite of tools to assist with finding the right person for a role while also supporting efforts to mitigate unconscious bias. Our approach to candidate assessment is also grounded on best practice talent identification, based on merit and ability, uncovering the traits and behaviours of candidates and evaluating against what is required in the role.

Recruitment Graduate

We are on a continuous journey of learning and development within our team and realise that we also have a social obligation to contribute to building and enhancing capability within our wider community. The global experience of a pandemic, while incredibly disrupting and challenging, has also accelerated change at an exponential rate, transforming the workplace and workforce in ways previously thought unimaginable. Alongside a steady increase in the next generation entering the workforce, who bring with them different skills and behaviours, we felt that the time was right to introduce a distinctive and highly targeted graduate programme that nurtured tomorrow’s recruitment leaders.

Introducing the Decipher Group Recruitment Graduate Programme, an immersive 12-month experience where participants work their way through structured learning while completing on-the-job training.

Applications for the 2024 programme are now closed.
