Hiring for permanent roles

We recruit great people for a broad range of permanent roles who meet your business needs, both technically & culturally.

Younity has strong local talent networks to draw from, and we have an excellent track record of bringing overseas talent into New Zealand when a rarer skill set requires a broader search. Our team assists you to build the internal capability that drives your innovation & growth.

Detailed candidate search

After taking a detailed job brief, the Younity team do the comprehensive search work to find those candidates that your own search may not have allowed you to reach. On most occasions, these are people who are not actively looking or who are unaware of the possibilities that are available to them in the market.

To achieve this, we use a wide variety of recruitment tools & technologies to identify talent, as well as leveraging our personal networks to select good candidates with the skills, experience and domain expertise you require.

Your partner agency in hiring decision making

We follow a structured recruitment process, consulting with hiring managers and providing real time salary advice, market insights and ongoing feedback to ensure that the best possible hiring decisions are made. Our team are true business partners, working tirelessly to provide a good experience, successful placement & great outcome.

Of course, we always complete the due diligence that you’d expect from a recruitment partner; we ensure application forms are completed accurately, we verify identity and eligibility to work in New Zealand, we conduct reference checks and thorough probity checks . Post-placement, we regularly check in to ensure both parties are going well.


Contractor recruitment

Trust Younity to source the highly skilled contractors you need to deliver your project initiatives or supplement your internal teams.

We’ve quickly become a leader in the New Zealand technology and business transformation contracting market, having placed a large volume of people into great contract engagements. Our consulting team have an extensive local network of highly skilled independent contractors, many of whom we’ve engaged with on multiple occasions in the past.

What our contractors can offer your project

Younity contractors can deliver technology & business transformation projects across a vast range of skill areas and competencies; anything from technology upgrades or replacements, product development, business change, digital transformation and more. We’ve built a track record of success and are trusted by our clients to consistently provide quality resources.

Quality contractor resource, quickly

Quality people sourced at pace is a key differentiator; we find the talent you need in turnaround times typically between 24 to 48 hours. Whilst we’ve got a strong local network, we are also able to attract contractors from offshore markets for rare or more difficult to find technical skill sets on longer term engagements.

Best in class experience

With robust back end systems, strong contractor management processes, good support structures and competitive market rates, we make contracting easy for both clients and contractors. Our aim is to ensure a good experience throughout the life of the contract for all parties.

Senior leadership and executive IT recruitment

Make the process of finding a specialist hire easier by outsourcing the entire end-to-end recruitment function to us.

Customised searches for critical roles

Younity is able to customise a bespoke search solution to be used for critical permanent recruitment engagements, including senior leadership roles or harder to find technical roles. Some permanent roles are harder to fill than others and may require a deeper search into local or international markets to find the best person for the job.

Sourcing hard-to-find skillsets and experience

These roles normally take a longer period of time to recruit given their importance to your business and the need to get it right. Typically, these roles will be senior leaders or executives, people managers or specialist technical roles with rare skills that are more difficult to source.

Collaboration with your stakeholders

Younity can take the responsibility and accountability for delivering a successful placement. We’ll collaborate with all of your internal stakeholders to design a bespoke recruitment project to suit your needs, set delivery timelines, and agree milestones and service expectations.

End-to-end management of the process

We’ll filter and manage all internal and external applicants, whilst also running a highly comprehensive search process to identify, qualify and attract high value candidates. We’ll ensure you successfully land the right person for the job whilst protecting your employment brand by running a professional and polished recruitment process.

To discuss our customised search value proposition further, contact one of our team and we can give you more details about how we can use this approach to solve your most difficult recruitment needs.


Contingent Labour Resourcing

Need to augment your team with a consultant to drive a technology or business transformation outcome?

Or are you seeking specialists, technical advisors or need additional horsepower added to your team for short periods of time? If so, our Contingent Labour Resourcing service offering could be for you.

Supporting your changing resourcing needs

Organisations choose to go down the contingent labour resourcing route primarily because they have restrictions on their ability to hire people due to internal HR headcount freezes, or have a preference to hire specialist consultants using service providers. Others may prefer crafting a more flexible staff augmentation arrangement, wanting the ability to shift resource numbers up or down based on variable demand.

In any of the above scenarios, the Younity team can provide a solution to suit, leveraging our vast network of highly skilled consultants, partners and technical professionals.

Capability across all areas of IT

Younity can augment your teams with individual consultants or teams of consultants across a wide variety of competencies. We are able to provide resource across functions such as project delivery, business change, digital transformation, software development and technology advisory.

Our team can source consultants or advisors in most of the major centres in New Zealand, be it full time or on a flexible hours basis. Let us provide you with the resourcing you need, wherever and whenever you need it.
