Our Brand Story
Northbridge is a chip on a computer motherboard which manages communication and is responsible for tasks that require the highest performance. Being a geek at heart, our founder, Shane Garvin, found the Northbridge chip a fitting place to begin our story.
In 2010, Northbridge was born with the idea of workforce solutions in Australia needed to inspire transformative growth in the ever-evolving recruitment industry and advancement of technology. We begin to deliver the spark that ignites transformative growth to our stakeholders.
Our belief is deep-rooted in diversity and collaboration, which are crucial to success. We developed a level of understanding that ensures a transformative journey for every stakeholder and ensures the delivery of our purpose. We are about quality; we are responsive to your needs; and we understand your motivations in whatever environment you find yourself today. We are organised around a clear set of values - passionate, inclusive and evolving.
Over the years, our service offering has evolved and expanded to include many different areas of specialisation from our roots in IT and Digital to Telecommunications, Human Resources, Customer Service and Office Support.
We are your Partner
Northbridge’s long-term success in the industry has been built on our reputation for delivering a quality service. We believe in partnering with organisations and having a consultative, people first approach to really understand both sides of the hiring dynamic - the needs of both clients and future employees.
Our current and future achievements lie in our no fear approach to innovation. Rather than shying away from our new technologies and supposed “recruitment killer apps,” we embrace them. Technology has come a long way in the recruitment and payroll sector and harnessing the latest tools and products in analytics, big data, machine learning and AI has created real value and unique IP.
We believe our technology investment gives us greater reach, speed and accuracy over our competitors. It is Northbridge’s ability to combine a classical service-oriented approach with the most modern tools and techniques, that give us the competitive advantage in the market.
We maintain the higher approach whilst remaining true to our core intention of commitment and quality, integrity, innovation, teamwork, respect and beyond now.
Our complete workforce solutions increase productivity, save time and potential lost revenue. It is this approach that has seen us work with a range of companies from iconic Australian start-ups through to Fortune 500 across industries, including Banking and Finance, Telecommunications, Utilities, Healthcare, Building and Construction, Government, Not-for-Profit, Retail and FMCG.

“I had the pleasure of securing the next step of my career. Thanks to Northbridge’s hard work. They took the time and effort to understand what I needed. Apart from being nice and helpful, they were very professional assisting me in every step of the process, from the beginning to the end. I highly recommend Northbridge for anyone looking for a new career opportunity.”
“After working overseas, I returned to Australia the week before Christmas and contacted Northbridge to pursue my interest in the not-for-profit sector. They quickly reviewed my skills and experience and canvassed the needs of their client base. Within 24 hours, I had an interview arranged owing to their relationships with decision-makers. Their assistance in researching and preparing for the interview was extremely thorough and ensured I had an offer the next day. I can without reservation, recommend Northbridge for not only those seeking careers in the not-for-profit sector, but also for employers who wish to attract motivated candidates.”
“Northbridge quickly gained an understanding of our requirements by listening to us and taking the time to understand how we work. We get a lot of calls from recruitment companies promising the best candidates in the market and then failing to deliver on those promises, however Northbridge has always supplied us with good quality candidates.”
“Northbridge has successfully partnered with our business for approximately three years. I have been extremely pleased with all aspects of their recruitment process from the initial liaison qualifying my requirements, to the submission of relevant CVs with detailed interview notes, right through to their diplomatic final stage negotiation. They have set themselves apart with their quick and efficient response to my requirements.”
“I have worked with Northbridge for over 7 years. They have consistently delivered a solid and reliable recruitment service with minimum fuss and without the usual "hard-sales" approach.”
“I have recently started working with Northbridge and have been extremely happy with the service they have provided. They have successively placed two candidates in roles we had struggled to fill but still in keeping with the skills and calibre we required. I look forward to working with them more in the future.”
