Paying it forward

Paying it forward is important to all of us at Likemind. That's why for every placement we provide, we make donations to those who need it most.

From day one we committed to pay it forward. To give back to those who needed it most. We do this by donating for each placement we make and using our platform to raise awareness. Likemind as a company and a team actively supports several organisations that help the vulnerable within our community.

We have supported Pet Refuge to care for pets affected by domestic violence, as well as Aged Concern, Dementia New Zealand, the Cancer Society, the Good Registry, as well as numerous local Give a Little causes. In support of diversity and inclusion, whānau and tamariki, we also make regular donations to help Gift a Safe Night, Rainbow Youth and Variety.

Pet Refuge was established to provide temporary shelter for pets affected by domestic violence, keeping them safe while their owners escape abuse.

Gifting a Safe Night helps the victims of family violence by booking a safe room where women and children can escape to.

Rainbow Youth provides support, information, resources & advocacy for Aotearoa’s queer, gender diverse, takatāpui and intersex youth.

Variety provides disadvantaged children with basic essentials (such as warm bedding and school uniforms), one-off grants for additional needs (such as medical and mobility equipment) and access to extra-curricular activities (such as school camp or swimming lessons).

Thanks to you and your team for the opportunity with your client. You have in place a very professional setup to support prospective candidates. I have dealt with a couple of recruitment companies in past roles, and none come close to the service and efficient, supportive communication you have provided.

It is a pleasure to work with you and I remain hugely impressed with the calibre of people you are finding for our roles in a tight market. You have a real talent for matching people to the roles, both in terms of skills and experience and personality fit for the role. Long may we continue to work together.
