Our workplace changes everyday. Internal and external influences make it happen. Nothing is concrete.
However, what doesn't change is the camaraderie. We all really care about one another and the work we do. We know, cheesy 🧀, but it is true..
Throughout the last 30 years, the company has made it through 3 recessions and other adverse world events. And then came 2020 and just like everyone else, we adapted to a new world of work. It was difficult, of course it was, but we've come out the other side as such a strong team. We wouldn’t be where we are today without our incredible team of individuals.
We’re always looking for the right people to join us.

The culture of this place is amazing, very supportive and fun. If you have any previous experience as an Recruitment Consultant, you probably know how horribly pressured and only money oriented it can be. Wade Macdonald is completely not like that. Sure, KPIs are important and you need to bring some good income, but they are there to help you and to celebrate your successes! I have now moved from recruitment to HR, but if I would consider going back to that career at any point, Wade Macdonald would be a place to go. Amazing friends and good money as well.
Amazing place to work! Would come back in a heartbeat!
