The benefits of a great work-life balance and flexible working are well known.


It decreases stress…

Boosts job satisfaction…

And helps maintain healthier habits. 


At Ensure Recruitment, we pride ourselves on our flexible working arrangements and believe that it helps our team find success both in work and life. 


But don’t take our word for it, here are 9 reasons why our team love Ensure Recruitment’s flexible work culture.


What do you enjoy about the flexible working conditions at Ensure?

I love that working at Ensure means I can have the flexibility to make my favourite gym classes - whether that be taking an extended lunch and working back later or varying my start & finish times. I feel like I can achieve a true work/life balance.

- Becky Hyndman, Principal Consultant, Ensure Recruitment


Ensure allows me to work flexible hours and occasionally from home.  This flexibility is amazing as it allows me to spend more time with my family!

- Rebecca Cazzolato, Finance Manager


I really enjoy working at Ensure Recruitment – this includes being able to work from home a couple of days a week. The environment is one of trust and respect, we all want to be successful and help one another.

- Lorraine Backhouse, Principal Consultant


As the owner of the business I’m committed to flexible working and feel privileged to lead a team where over 50% of our employees work flexibly and still achieve exceptional results. Our commitment is to continue to evolve our flexible working offer to ensure we are meeting the needs of our people in balancing their work and personal time.

- Paul Murphy, Managing Director

This would be my first job which provides a real work-life balance. I can honestly say that my lifestyle has significantly improved after joining Ensure Recruitment. Relationships here are based on trust and mutual support. - Kostya Rozin, Specialist Consultant


Flexible hours has been a life changer/saver for me.  There were times last year when I would not have been able to travel into the city daily and having the option of working from home 2 days a week has been invaluable.  Living so far out of Auckland the flexible start/finish times are fantastic, I can drop my daughter at school and start working on the train.

- Vanessa Vandenbrink, Senior Specialist Consultant


The level of flexibility that Ensure Recruitment offers is second to none.  It’s not only about having the option to work from home, it’s being able to tailor my days and hours in a way that works for me.  It means I can fit in my preferred gym classes, or begin my day earlier so I can get away earlier and skip Friday afternoon traffic! - Johanna Farquhar, Specialist Consultant


I took a year off recruitment to focus on my passion projects. For me to come into recruitment, I needed to join a company that supported & encouraged me to continue with my passion projects. Working from home & having the flexibility to work the hours I need, has been incredibly instrumental in my success as a Recruiter at Ensure. - Sharon Hoffman, Practice Lead


I’m fortunate to work for a company that provides me the opportunity of a work from home day. The benefits are both mental and physical, include less commuting, more sleep, and more importantly means I can have breakfast with my daughter. I never take this for granted - it’s a blessing for me and my family. The trust and belief provided by Ensure is rare within the industry and reaffirms my decision to work here. - Richard McGuinness, Senior Specialist Consultant
