Local government

Local government organisations have unique hiring challenges when it comes to tech roles, which we know firsthand. With a deep understanding of the local tech job market and an extensive network of tech professionals across New Zealand, we source skilled candidates quickly for the councils, ministries and other organisations we support. Our experts also offer valuable insights and advice on industry trends and salaries, helping government entities to attract and retain the talent they need.

  • Talent was a happy surprise for me. They surprised me with their use of technology to communicate with their contractors. I found their technology easy to use and very responsive to the needs of a contractor. Another great surprise is the effort that they have made to really understand me and my skills, I have not had this experience with other agencies. The people working within Talent are enthusiastic, positive and if I have any problems or concerns they always respond very quickly to address them.

A global government focus

To utilise our government specific knowledge, network and continue to attract the best candidates for the government sector, we have developed a Government Centre of Excellence (GCE). A global team of our Government and public sector recruitment specialists come together regularly to discuss changes to legislation, newly available candidates, major digital transformation projects and challenges facing Government departments around the world. This knowledge centre is just one example of what sets us apart.

Whether you're looking for top tech talent or your next government opportunity, we can help.
