About Ccentric Group

Who We Are

Ccentric is dedicated to serving the leadership needs of organisations in Healthcare, Healthcare Academia, Digital Health and Not-for-profit and Human Service sectors. We have over 20 years of experience in global executive recruitment and an invaluable reputation for meeting clients’ expectations. We are headquartered in Australia, but search across the globe to find the best, most committed and creative executive, clinical and academic leadership talent. Recently, we have developed a new relationship with Wavelength; Australia’s largest medical recruitment agency, to form Australia’s first vertically integrated specialist healthcare recruitment firm. 

Partnering Approach to Understand Your Organisation, Needs and Culture

Ccentric Group understands the importance of developing a rapport with you as our client and ensuring we have a clear understanding of the organisation, its culture, strengths and challenges, as well as the specific position for which we are recruiting. We have an established process to take the brief, confirm your expectations, clearly understand your desired outcomes, and to establish rapport and trust.

We produce a high-quality Candidate Information Pack that is used to inform candidates about the opportunity. It portrays your organisation and the position in an accurate and positive light to convey a sense of excitement about the opportunity to convert the maximum number of potential candidates to become seriously interested applicants.

We share with you what we are learning in the marketplace, how the candidate response is coming along, and how the organisation is perceived in the market. When required, we discuss with you any potential adjustments that need to be made to the initial strategy to deliver the desired outcome.

Finding the Right Candidate

We know how important it is to secure the right candidate for your organisation. We take the time to conduct an extensive search, both nationally and internationally to ensure we present you with a tight selection of excellent candidates. Each applicant is not only assessed on their experience, capabilities and skillset, but also on their personality to identify the correct cultural fit. In fact, our executive placements stay and perform with an average tenure of more than 5 years.

We were impressed by the depth and span of Ccentric’s reach into both the domestic and international markets in bringing together a very strong list of potential candidates...

Barbara YeohChair, Monash Health

Search firms do not, in my experience, always find the balance between the interests of the client and those of the candidates easy to maintain. In this case, I felt this was never in doubt due to the excellent communication skills of the Ccentric team...
