The Six Degrees difference

Our candidate network: The hint is in the name! Six Degrees was founded with the intent to focus on relationship-based recruitment. Our specialist consultants sit at the very epicentre of the talent ecosystems across the industries we serve and are deeply networked within their fields of speciality. 


Six Degrees' teams of specialist consultants understand the markets they recruit in and provide expert knowledge and guidance to deliver meaningful outcomes for our customers. Our consultants immerse themselves in the worlds in which they specialise, adding value and providing thought leadership to those professions rather than simply transacting within them.

Our growing pool of specialist recruitment services cover accounting & finance, business to business, consumer and FMCGcommunications, contracting, digital, engineering, government, marketing, fundraising & not for profit, operations, procurement, supply chain, sales, services, and technology.

Our dedicated Executive Search team focuses on the top end of the market, placing executives and leaders in C-suite, Board and Non-Executive Director positions across Australia. 


Six Degrees’ consultants always go that step further to understand organisational drivers and business requirements in order to unearth and deliver exceptional talent that is aligned to the unique cultures of our clients. We pride ourselves on being a values-led, non-transactional agency with a consultative, relationship-based approach and a genuine ‘above and beyond’ care factor that leads to the best outcomes for our partners.  


Investing in our people has paid off, not only for Six Degrees but for our customers. Six Degrees enjoys a strong performance culture with a higher-than-average tenure of recruitment consultants, leading to a more consistent experience for clients who can be assured they will receive the best, personalised service. 


Ultimately what defines us is our ability to unearth talent that thrives. Six Degrees has a reputation for consistently delivering quality executive talent and we’re proud to be judged on our track history of success. We have a 90% first-time fill rate and, over 90% of our placed talent remain in their roles post 12 months.
