Our story 84 Recruitment

We're building a legacy of success stories

Back in 2013, North Shore born and bred Mark Fisher founded 84 Recruitment in his living room with a crappy laptop, no money and shit-tons of hope. In a crowded market, he tactically decided to flip the traditional script of recruitment and chased the best candidates over winning clients. This opened doors to even the hardest companies because he could deliver solutions, not empty promises and we proudly live by that same ethos today.

Mark wanted to build a business that inspired candidates to find their passion, helped clients to win with the best people and most importantly, grow recruiters from any background to feel empowered to create their best life.

Today, 84 is a dynamic, fast-growing business based in the world-renowned B:Hive Building in Auckland. Our recruiters come from a diverse range of backgrounds and we recruit a wide range of disciplines, both in public and private sector - we’ve found exceptional people a (work)place to call home from all across New Zealand and all over the world.

We’re a human-centred yet sophisticated data-driven business, meaning we recruit with intelligence but help businesses make sensible decisions that consider the whole person. It’s how we’ve grown our own business, too. By prioritising people first, we’ve built a kind, genuine, approachable team that makes both candidates and clients feel comfortable to share their story and where they're going.

We’ve been around long enough to know what works, but we don’t rest on our laurels, stay complacent or stand still. As the world of work changes, we keep learning and seeking better ways to do things because one thing we all share is a growth mindset.

    "​After I applied for a role advertised by 84 Recruitment, I received an email response from consultant Jessica to confirm receipt of my application and that she would be in touch shortly. Sounds standard enough, however emails like these sometimes takes weeks before a response is received. I received a call to have a chat about the role I applied for within 48 hours. Jess was friendly and the way questions were asked to get to know me made me feel at ease. From the original call all the way through out the recruitment process I was kept in the loop with regular updates. Thanks Jess for being super amazing throughout the entire process."

    ​"Having Sheldon Pillay as a Recruitment Consultant has definitely been a huge blessing in my life. He has been 10 steps ahead in guiding me through my immigration journey. He has not only arranged the job, but also been key in ensuring my immigration process from South Africa to New Zealand is smooth. I have been recommending him to numerous colleagues of mine in the Construction and Engineering sector around South Africa and we have dubbed him, with the nickname, SP (with an Afrikaans pronunciation) when we have discussions about New Zealand. SP and New Zealand go hand in hand. SP, is very approachable and has great character. Keep it up SP! It has been a privilege bra (South African version of 'mate')!
