About Us

About Us

Six Degrees Executive is Australia’s leading independent, specialist executive recruitment consultancy. We provide intelligent, expert talent solutions across specialist disciplines including marketing, digital, retail, sales, supply chain, procurement and engineering and operations.

With deep and highly engaged networks of talent across Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane, our expert consultants have a reputation for understanding the dynamics of the job roles and industries in which we specialise and acting as ‘talent magnets’ for the most dynamic and high potential candidates in the market.

We pride ourselves on being a highly customer-centric and relationship-driven agency. Our consultants have a genuine desire to positively shape the futures of individuals we engage with and maintain a focus on helping our clients build successful, sustainable businesses via the recruitment of exceptional talent.

The Six Degrees difference

Our candidate network: The hint is in the name! Six Degrees was founded with the intent to focus on ‘long game’, 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 specialises to better understand our markets and offer expert knowledge and skills 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 includes business to businessconsumercontracting, digital, education, engineering and operations, healthcare, marketing, not for profit, procurement, supply chain, retail, sales and services. Our dedicated Executive Search team focuses on the top end of the market, placing 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.
