HSE People Recruiting HSE People….

We are a team of qualified HSEQR people who are also professional accredited recruiters, now working to support our industry with specialist Health and Safety Recruitment throughout Asia Pacific.

Our headquarters is based in New Zealand and we love what we do, so much so, we have moved operations to Australia.

edenfx understand that HSEQR has become a dynamic part of every business and has forged its way to the top of the corporate agenda. It is this detailed understanding which has led us to recognise the need to provide superior recruitment services exclusively for professionals within the Health, Safety, Environmental, Quality and Risk Management sectors.

Permanent recruitment

As the HSEQR specialists within industry, we work tightly in our networks and source the very best people. Due to the technical requirements of each position, every assignment is treated as a search exercise and a consultant team is appointed to work exclusively for you.

Of course, we also advertise on the open market and this allows those we have previously worked with to apply for a new position offering an audit trail as we have an absolute no poach policy and respect our relationships throughout the community.

Contracted and Project Recruitment

Many people now regard our contracting division as the ‘flexible work force’ as this model allows companies to take on specialist skills when and where they are needed for ad hoc projects. We also offer our Contracted resources as backfill whilst we are recruiting for the permanent positions and this allows for a competent temporary resource at the appropriate
level while the permanent hire is sourced. This supports sustainability and retention for clients as it is a no compromise service.

Rest assured, our competent contractors will have a minimum of 5 years proven industry experience, are tertiary qualified, hold recognised formal auditing qualifications and are fully reference checked as well as subject to on going performance reviews throughout your assignment.

Our Contracting Division has continued to grow and so please feel free to contact our Head of Contracting, Duncan to support fixed term contracts and contracted appointments.

The edenfx recruitment process

Our process (in a nutshell):        

We will provide you with our Professional Services Terms of Business and request time to take a briefing on the position. We prefer face-to-face however appreciate that this is not always possible and so use easily accessible video conferencing facilities/zoom to reduce our carbon footprint.

The majority of our work is exclusive and retained appointments as a result of the nature of the industry and as the team are qualified HSEQR people we have extensive networks and our database of thousands to work within.  We source locally, nationally and internationally.

We also advertise our open positions on job boards and this allows an audit trail for previously placed candidates to apply for the roles as edenfx are committed to a NO POACH policy for our clients.

Next, we screen all of the applicants thoroughly against the position description and our clients’ criteria. For us it is very much about finding the right candidate for your organisation, with competency and organisational fit determined before presentation of details.

Our team will only present the best candidates, as we believe in quality over quantity. We have and offer tailor made guaranteed services to our clients.  In a nutshell, we are risk free, outcome focussed and deliver a high quality service at highly competitive rates.  

We ask for 100% of the fees to give you 100% outcome of service delivery; it’s the value we add not the cost of the service. Our fees are competitive and fixed; our professional services are the same as that you would value from your lawyers and you wouldn’t expect your lawyer to reduce their rates.
