Our values

Ethics and values matter in recruitment 

Six Degrees Executive’s values are absolutely integral to our success because values matter in the recruitment industry. 
While some recruitment agencies take a transactional, win-at-all-costs approach to recruitment, the Six Degrees’ co-founders built an organisation where values are at the very core of the way the business functions. As a company, we attribute our success to the ability and determination to hold true to these values. 

A values-led organisation

We get it – every company has a set of values buried somewhere, often hastily put together and uploaded to a website with a “set and forget” approach. At Six Degrees, we are serious about living our values. We use this philosophy to guide our behaviour, our culture, our decision-making and our ways of working. 

Why does this matter? Our strong adherence to our values not only benefits the drive and dedication of our people but is a key point of difference valued by the clients and candidates who work with us.

WHAT OUR VALUES MEAN TO US

CURIOUS MINDS

In short, we ask all the right questions. Our specialists go further to fully understand our clients’ goals and team culture, along with our candidates’ career aspirations to make sure we connect the right people with the right role. Clients and candidates who engage with Six Degrees can expect to develop long-term relationships where we place great people multiple times in their career and provide clients the best talent to achieve their business goals. Our culture of continuous learning means that you will always work with specialists with the very latest, best-practice recruitment knowledge and skill-sets. 

PERFORMANCE MATTERS

The team at Six Degrees is proud of our 90% first-time fill rate and the fact that 90% of our placed talent remains in their roles for over 12 months. This exceptional track record is no accident – our team works collaboratively to achieve performance targets and shares a firm belief in the importance of accountability, quality and teamwork. Our performance framework ensures a team mentality in hitting targets, where the best interests of clients and candidates are always at heart. 

PASSIONATE PLAYERS

Clients and candidates alike value our genuine passion for delivering the very best talent solutions and bringing career aspirations to life. Our consultants immerse themselves in the disciplines in which they specialise and take every opportunity to stay up-to-date with the latest challenges and opportunities facing their sectors. Six Degrees’ clients are frequently surprised at the level of knowledge – and passion – that our specialists have about the issues unique to sectors we focus on. 

DO WHAT’S RIGHT

Doing what’s right is second-nature to our consultants at Six Degrees Executive. This important decision-making value has enabled our organisation to build a reputation for ethical behaviour and trustworthiness over 15 years of recruiting. This is a core value that enables Six Degrees to stand out in an industry where doing what’s right for both clients and candidates doesn’t always take precedence. 

DELIGHT OUR CUSTOMERS

Six Degrees’ clients and candidates are not only delighted by the end result, but by the whole end-to-end experience, beginning with the first point of contact. We always try to go that extra mile to ensure all our customers remain fully engaged, informed and satisfied with our services.  


DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION

Six Degrees value the importance of diversity, inclusion and belonging and understand the importance of providing inclusive and equitable recruitment services. We are privileged to play a role in shaping the futures of our clients and candidates and strive to ensure all people in our circle of influence are included and treated with respect and understanding.

UNEARTHING DIVERSE TALENT: CREATING INCLUSIVE FUTURES 

At Six Degrees, we know from experience that the secret to unearthing great talent lies in understanding individuality. That’s why we strive to develop a culture and recruitment environment where all types of diversity are valued and celebrated – not just because it’s the right thing to do, but because diverse and inclusive cultures are good for business. 

We value the privileged role we play in influencing positive change through our recruitment processes and we are focussed on helping our clients unlock the benefits of diverse and inclusive teams. We acknowledge the magnitude of this journey and ask our key stakeholders to partner us in the spirit of open learning and continuous improvement as we progress towards inclusion and equality.


inclusive Australia
inclusive Australia alliance partnership

As a founding Alliance Member of Inclusive Australia, Six Degrees is committed to building a more inclusive and unified future, where all people feel they belong and are valued and where difference is respected and celebrated. We believe the most successful way to positively shift attitudes and behaviour towards others is to build connection, understanding and empathy amongst people of different backgrounds, perspectives and circumstances. 


CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

We are committed to giving back to the community via our corporate social responsibility program.
