About agoge

Agoge was founded in 2003 by Andrew Nicol in Hamilton NZ  to provide recruitment services to the Transport & Logistics industry. As our branch network has grown, we have developed our brands and connections with the community and are now a full service human resource partner for a number of great businesses across New Zealand.

Agoge is a social enterprise. This means that our core purpose for making money is to do good in the communities and around the world.
