Agoge's Story

The story that shapes your life
In my final years of high school I was labelled. I was average (to below average). I lacked discipline. I needed to work harder. It would have been easy for me to accept that story and have it define my life. What your schools, friends, colleagues and even family say about you is far less important than it seems. Far more important is the story you tell yourself. You get to choose the story that shapes your life. No one else. ∴ Fortunately, the person I am today is dramatically different to the person I was 20 years ago. Over...

Did you know that for every week that one of our onsite staff work as a part of the Agoge Recruitment team, that someone in Cambodia gets access to clean water for a month! And for every trainee on a course with Agoge Training, that's another person with clean water for a month. Social enterprises are businesses that solve social problems and do good along the way. As a social enterprise, Agoge has a proud history of having a positive impact in our communities, supporting the launch of the Good Trust in 2009. For us at Agoge, being a social...

Successful businesses have at their centre an engaged, valued team of people. Often recruitment companies can treat people like numbers, we think that’s sad. People are our first priority, and always will be.
That means that we strive to do the best we can to care for and value our team of onsite staff as we live our vision.
We understand that for our clients, just getting someone into the role isn't the best solution. We know the cost of recruitment is not just finding someone, it's also making sure they become productive quickly and that they stay. Our onsite staff actively live our vision and 'be' values when they're out on site.
