Most Innovative Recruitment Company Recruitment International Awards 2019 (Finalist)

Awards and Accolades aren’t the most important thing (that's why they aren't plastered on our banner!) but it's great to receive recognition from the industry on a national and international scale. Even more so for a fully South Australian company that (we have been told) struggles to toot it's own horn.


We’ve worked so hard to find the right blend of building an amazing, inclusive and high performing culture.

On our values:


We’re Courageous to ask questions and try things never before tried in our industry.


We're Curious to understand organsiations and people beyond a job description or CV.


We're Authentic. There's no smoke and mirrors and no ego. We've brought the Executive Search and Recruitment industry into the 21st century.

Amazing, couldn’t recommend higher!! An amazing team! They got me a temp job within days of signing up with them. They kept me up to date on everything, checked in to see how happy I was and after a few weeks they got me a contract with an amazing company!

Chris, Client

Fantastic at understanding our requirements, learning quickly about how our business works and the qualities we required from the right candidate.
They filled our vacancy in under 2 weeks and we will no doubt look to use EGM in the future. Highly recommend.
