Public Sector


The Johnson Group’s core recruitment expertise is in the public sector from both candidate and client perspectives. 

Our focus is on filling vacancies in public sector management, policy, human resources, communications and marketing; and providing contractors across the sector.  Knowing that the public sector helps drive New Zealand forward we stay on top of developments - economic, social and environmental.

Our key strengths are:

  • The specialist expertise of our consultants
  • In excess of 25 years public sector recruitment experience
  • A dedicated talent pool of public sector professionals (permanent & contract)
  • Providing innovative solutions for clients and candidates
  • A proven reputation for high-quality results.

Our results speak for themselves: we fill 98% of our vacancies on the first attempt when working with clients exclusively. Not only that, 82% of our vacancies are filled from our talent community—the public sector professionals who are in our talent pool because they trust us to find them their perfect job in government.
