Gembridge is an innovative and niche executive search & recruitment agency that focuses on the for-purpose sector. We are a Certified BCorp, that balances people, profit, and purpose. 

Finding Gems, Connecting People
We partner with organisations that deliver thriving social and/or environmental impact. Our clients range from small local community organisations, to big national brands, and include medical research, health, advocacy, social enterprises, education (independent schools and tertiary), arts & culture, sport & recreation, animals, environment & sustainability, welfare, faith-based charities, philanthropic foundations, membership groups, peak bodies, and BCorps.

You will be empowered to build networks, develop opportunities with new and existing clients, and manage recruitment projects from initial brief and advertising through to negotiating and confirming successful placements.
