Our Culture Code

We believe in being audacious – giving ourselves space to assume risks, explore opportunities and seek out new challenges. We believe in taking charge of our future and setting objectives that position GQR and ourselves as the very best in the industry. We believe our people are architects of their own success, and we embrace the rare opportunity of meritocracy.

Commission Structure

Starting at a 25% Total Comp Rate at entry-level, moving up to 50% at the top end. To be clear; this means you will be taking home 50% of the revenue you generate. With a lot of businesses capping their top tier at 30%, it would be absurd not to consider us as an option if you’re a STEM recruiter looking to earn more cash. The average revenue per head is $415k versus the industry standard of $180k. We have countless case studies of experienced recruiters joining us who have doubled or even trebled their earnings in their first 12 months. Never sold a retainer? No problem, we will teach you.

International Women's Day

The adventure aspect of being able to take risks and having more opportunities to travel was a big factor that drew me in. I also wanted to see what I could do in a market that was in its infancy, yet rapidly growing within the company.

Success At GQR vs Elsewhere

"I’ve observed that success is more widely discussed and dissected across the business than what I’ve experienced before – regardless of role, it seems to be ingrained into each and every person at GQR." Ismail Temsamani, VP Technology ••• One key difference I’ve observed is that the minimum performance expectations at GQR would have been classified as “elite” performance at my previous employer. Lucas Rowe, SA Transmission & Distribution
