Charterhouse has been selected as an Employer of Choice in The Australian Business Awards 2023. The Australian Business Award for Employer of Choice [EOC] recognises organisations that develop workplaces that maximise the full potential of their workforce through established policies and practices which demonstrate effective employee recruitment, engagement and retention.

Being recognised as an Employer of Choice in 2023 for the sixth year running speaks volumes about the premium we place on living our credo of “People Over Placements, Always” and it is a testament to the people that work here who live this ethos every day.

We are, and always will be, only as good as the people we have working with us; how we attract, engage and retain our people has to be the primary lens through which we consider all of our interactions with them.  Internally this relates to authentic and transparent management with clear communication, consistently.  Externally, it relates to the providing unbiased counsel in a transparent and detailed fashion, facilitating our customers to make the most informed decisions.

In our organisation the what of what we do matters, but the ‘how’ of how we do it matters more and so “People Over Placements” is always the starting point of any interaction.

Charterhouse CEO, Jason Darbyshire

Charterhouse is a forward-thinking, award-winning recruitment agency with a mission to expand the talent pool by creating remarkable candidate experiences. Charterhouse’s primary focus is to help bring prospective employees together with amazing employers and workplaces to find them fulfilling employment that brings job satisfaction. 

Operating across eight offices internationally, their employees use Charterhouse’s platforms and networks and augment this with their own relationships and networks to broker meetings and discussions. Charterhouse is a privately held, medium-sized recruitment organisation with two core businesses: Charterhouse Medical & Charterhouse Partnership. 

Charterhouse Medical – supplies medical professionals across Australia and the UK on a permanent and locum basis. With agreements signed in each of Australia’s states, they place doctors rurally, regionally, and at a metropolitan level across Australia. 

Charterhouse Partnership – supplies professionals across IT, Accounting, Strategy & Policy and Professional Support. They do so on both a permanent and interim basis. Their depth of relationships spans across Government, Commercial and Financial Services sectors. Charterhouse place professionals at the outset of their career right the way through to the pinnacle of their career. 

Charterhouse employees share a mutual recognition of the positive experiences they enjoy at the organisation. With flexible work arrangements and a laser focus on progression, their hybrid workforce is now represented across three key cities in Australia: Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. Charterhouse’s strategies and programs aim to ensure that their employees can be their “authentic selves” at work and that they have all of the tools at their disposal to succeed and to be empowered about influencing their careers with us. The six pillars of our strategy are: 

  • A broad & meaningful employee benefits program.
  • A comprehensive Wellbeing strategy that addresses wellbeing from many different angles and perspectives. 
  • A purposeful awards & recognition program that encourages high performance whilst placing a premium on customer service and ensuring a remarkable customer experience.
  • A significant investment in their people through an L&D framework that is multi-faceted and engages a variety of learning styles both on and off-site. It has enough scope to appeal to all demographics of their business. 
  • A program that focuses on their place outside their chosen profession (both at an organisation and individual level). Their commitments to charities and causes are aligned with their values, and that can leverage their expertise and reach. 
  • Fostering a strong company culture. Everything they do is aimed towards delivering the best employee experience. Charterhouse wants its people to be passionate about what they do and what we do.
