Charterhouse Australia

What Hunted Says

The Charterhouse brand started life in Sydney in 2003 and has grown to Melbourne, Hong Kong, Singapore, Doha and Dubai. The Australian business currently is going from strength to strength with CEO Jason Darbyhire at the helm. They've invested hugely in their brand as an employer and distilled exactly how to develop, support and motivate the team to the highest levels of performance as well as employee satisfaction and wellbeing. They offer well defined training, career paths in both BD and team management, two commission schemes (you choose!) and a super comprehensive compensation package. They have ambitious growth aspirations and there are currently opportunities to join the business in Accounting, Technology, Medical, Business Support and Legal. They look for the potential in consultants, confident in the knowledge that it will be realised in the Charterhouse environment.

Training & Support

Without brilliant people, we cannot do brilliant work. We need you, your unique skills and abilities and your way of looking at the world. At Charterhouse, we’ll provide you with best-in-class training, including a specially designed 5-day program which covers every aspect of the recruitment cycle, regular on-desk training, as well as ad hoc internal and external training to meet your needs. We want you to stay with us for the duration, too, which is why we offer clearly defined career paths to our people, supported by quarterly reviews and 360 feedback. If you are after promotion to manager or director level, we’ll provide you with the tools and support to help you on your way. We also encourage lateral moves across disciplines and offer opportunities to individuals wishing to specialise in business development. You’ll be part of a dedicated team from day one, working, learning and achieving together.

Our House

Our team of experienced recruiters have deep knowledge of their chosen fields and excel at interpreting current trends to map the best route forward. There’s no such thing as a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach at Charterhouse. We build exceptional relationships with candidates and clients and adapt our solutions to meet their individual needs. We know that we have the ideas, insight and capability to expand the talent pool. And we know that we can provide a remarkable recruitment experience for all, now and in the future. By thinking big, we can achieve bigger. Together.

Employer of Choice

Charterhouse is honoured to be named as an Employer Of Choice Winner in the Australia Business Awards 2018. Our business is commercially strong and there is no doubt that this is 100% attributable to the people that work here. Our business treats as a priority its values and ensuring that we put them at the core of how we practice and interact day to day; championing diversity and inclusion, equality, agility and understanding that people sit at the centre of any plan if our business is to continue to succeed. This award recognises a milestone on this journey rather than a destination and this focus on human experience will continue to sit at the heart of Charterhouse’s strategy as we move forward.

Diversity & Inclusion

There are no labels, bias or judgment at Charterhouse. We are one of only a handful of recruitment businesses with membership of Diversity Council Australia, and we actively promote diversity in all aspects both within our company and externally. Our leadership team is 42% female, and we are continuing to work to reduce the gender gap. We are also seeking ways to promote cultural awareness and to encourage indigenous employment. Our team also works alongside WithYouWithMe to place veterans in rewarding roles in the civilian sector. You can be sure of a safe and inclusive environment at Charterhouse, as well a genuine focus on diversity across all our business activities.

The Big Picture

At Charterhouse we care. Each year, our people select a number of charities we really care about, which we then support through active volunteering and fundraising initiatives. In 2017, we were proud to raise $720 for the RSPCA and $550 for Cancer Council Australia. Some of our current projects include running an Easter art & craft session at Ronald McDonald House and raising money through a curry cook-off in the office. A team from our Melbourne office recently spent a day scrubbing swimming pools at Children First Foundation’s Miracle Smiles Retreat, where children from developing countries prepare for and recover from life-changing surgery. We also support The Exodus Foundation, which provides meals for the homeless in Sydney’s CBD, by volunteering with food preparation and service.

Flexible Career Paths

We recognise that every individual has a different idea when it comes to careers. You may want to experience different disciplines; or perhaps you are attracted to a more commercial-style role; or maybe you’ve always aimed to move up the ladder to senior management. At Charterhouse, we offer a clearly defined career path, with options to move both laterally and vertically, or to specialise in business development. Our managers are promoted on merit, not billings. You need to internally interview for the role, and we take a variety of factors into consideration, such as commitment, consistency, and credibility. We also provide dedicated support for consultants wishing to move into a business development role, including a mentor program where you will be paired up with a suitable match within the business.

Charterhouse Culture

We want you to be excited about every working day at Charterhouse, so we place a lot of emphasis on company culture. We are all individuals, but we are also a united team with a desire to achieve – and exceed – our goals. We actively encourage strong bonds to form between our people, but we also promote healthy competition. Above all, we continually strive to ensure high levels of employee satisfaction. We are a passionate, tenacious, hard-working, fun-loving bunch. Come and join us!
