We are big on team culture and celebrate our achievements both collective and individual. We've done fun runs like round the bays, quarterly celebratory lunches and team building activities. Most recently we celebrated an excellent quarter with a day trip to Martinborough for a wine tastings tour! 

We are always on the lookout for great talent to join our team so if you’re interested, check our current opportunities. 


Recruitment Consultant

At one eighty recruitment we work as a team to provide the 'one eighty experience' to everyone we encounter from candidates to contractors to clients to suppliers. We provide innovative solutions within a flexible environment focusing on quality delivery through strong relationships. We specialise in providing recruitment services to clients across the wider built environment encompassing the construction, property, engineering and architecture sectors.

We enjoy what we do and offer an environment in which you will flourish with benefits such as:

  • Flexible working hours
  • Wellness programme
  • Coffee machine on site
  • International trips for top performers
  • 'Dress for the day' policy
  • Latest technology including state of the art phones, computers, headsets
  • Birthday day off
  • Paid charitable working day
  • Quarterly team incentive programme

You may have some recruitment experience but really we are after people with previous experience in sales, customer service, brokering or solutions focused roles. You will also need to have a wide range of skills including:

  • An appreciation of the value of money
  • A competitive streak
  • An understanding of the metrics of sales and business development
  • A sharp eye for numbers
  • Top written skills
  • The ability to read people, understand, listen and empathise
  • The ability to close deals
  • The ability to follow systems
  • Technologically savvy

And you will be:

  • Presentable
  • Hungry for growth and development
  • Resilient, honest with high integrity

We have a structured online training programme for new to industry consultants, but you will need to spend most of your days meeting candidates and clients and talking to them on the phone. You will then learn your specific market segment and very quickly become an expert in the trends and movements within that sector.

We are asking a lot, but the rewards for the right person are fantastic! You will be rewarded with a base salary plus a healthy commission structure.

Recruitment Coordinator

  • Modern office fit out in Thorndon
  • Support a busy team of 4 high performing consultants
  • 3-month contract


At one eighty recruitment, we truly encapsulate our values - we provide innovative solutions through quality delivery, we are relationship focused within a flexible environment. We have grown considerably over the past 12 months and now need a fulltime Recruitment Coordinator / Sales Support expert to join our team on a contract through to Christmas.

You will work in a busy sales office and not only keep the office running you will also support four experienced and successful consultants. We specialise in the construction, property and engineering sector, so we have some fantastic clients and candidates for you to develop relationships with. Primarily your responsibilities will include:

  • Providing sales support through CRM/ATS management, formatting CV's, processing rejections, diary management and compliance management
  • Manage our contractors ensuring they complete time-sheets, contracts and H&S obligations
  • Follow our social media calendar, maintain our website and ensure the one eighty brand is always represented correctly
  • Ensure the office is tidy, beer fridge is stocked and all areas are presentable
You will ideally come with some experience of the recruitment industry, although this is not critical. Previous experience in a sales support environment will make you a great addition to the team. However, you will need top notch MS office skills, some EA/PA experience and an understanding of CRM systems. 

This role is primarily that of an office manager and keeping the office running whilst we focus on recruiting, secondary to that is administration but it all adds up to sales support. We are very focused as a team on achieving targets and enjoy some pretty awesome days out of the office when we do. You will be very much a part of this.
