Our approach is to properly understand our clients so we can recruit the right people for them.  We use innovative marketing and advertising techniques and have a reputation for our smart ideas and smart staff.

Absolute IT was established in Wellington in 2000, opening our Auckland branch in 2004, Absolute Global in 2006, our Hamilton branch in 2012 and Christchurch in 2013.  All of our staff go through a rigorous hiring and induction process.  We are proud to say that we have an excellent retention record, with robust career management progression. We believe we have the best team in the market.

We have three founders; Grant Burley and Tina Ng (both Wellington based) and Martin Barry (Auckland based) who play an active day to day role in the business.

We’re proud to be 100% New Zealand owned yet with a global focus.  We share the common vision of being New Zealand’s top recruitment company. This means being the best connected, the most knowledgeable and the most effective in meeting our clients’ needs and our job seeker’s needs – our success comes from your success.
