Started in 2007 by Ailsa Atkins and Beccy Lane…Key Skills Recruitment agency is now one of the biggest in the Wellington region. We strive to be a company that helps add value to Wellington business and communities.

Ailsa and Beccy started the business with a lot of heart and passion but with very little funds. They had both been in the Recruitment business in various places around the world, but felt they could do things better. They realised that people needed to be treated less like a number and more like people with lives, families, ambitions and goals.

Our unique approach, involving extensive customer consultation, has seen us help 4000 employees find work with 463 employers in the Wellington region. Although we are a temporary recruitment firm, many of these solutions are now permanent. It’s not just about finding jobs though, Key Skills are proud to have an active apprenticeship program as well as a strong involvement in local community groups helping those without work experience.

As well as the company growth, awards and recognition, the thing Ailsa and Beccy are most proud of is their internal recruitment efforts. They have gathered together the most loyal, passionate, committed bunch of human beings = the Key Skills Team. Josh has been with the team since 2010 through thick and thin; the rest of the gang have been gathered since then, teamwork certainly makes the dream work! (You can meet the team on page 20!)

So in short, we are here, we are good and we are recruiting!
