Morgan McKinley – Why Work With Us?

Real People

Great things happen when you’re free to be you. That’s why we foster an open, collaborative environment and provide the tools and encouragement to help you develop professionally, and personally

Real Opportunity

When you join Morgan McKinley, you commit to your own success. We offer valuable opportunities to develop your expertise, as well as career mapping and personal mentorship to ensure you achieve your goals.

Plus, with offices in 10 countries, the opportunity to take your career global is always on the table.

Our reward and recognition program is second to none. We celebrate ambition and we reward accomplishment. Our Go Beyond and Global Service Star awards are kind of a big deal. And our Value Heroes also get the 5-Star treatment.

Real Meaning

We have created our culture around a single-minded purpose: to improve lives. This starts by fostering an environment where each of us is supported in pursuing our goals. It’s only when we’re at our best, that we can give our best.

We take giving back seriously, but we have fun doing it. With the MMK Million we’ve set a goal to raise €1,000,000 for charity, and we’re three quarters of the way there! We’ve supported over 200 charities in the communities we work in and committed more than 8,000 hours volunteering for local causes.

If you value collaboration and communication, if you’re open to the challenge of driving positive change for your clients and community, then head over to our dedicated careers site to find out more and get in touch.

At Morgan McKinley, our mission is to go beyond. That’s why we offer competitive salaries, work flexibility, benefits and so much more!

Here Purpose isn’t a buzzword or a bandwagon we happened to hop on. It’s baked into our culture as our guiding principle. We’re here to improve lives: one colleague, one client, one candidate, one community at a time.


Our reward and recognition system is unique within the industry. Not only do we offer a competitive commission structure, but top performers enjoy five-star experiences such as overseas trips and luxury hotel stays. We also use any excuse for a party!

When you work with us we also work for you. This means ongoing training and development opportunities tailored to your career path, and a progression plan structured around your objectives. Plus, with universal access to our Knowledge Hub, you can up-skill any time, any place, on any device in any subject area you choose.


Our culture is what sets us apart. We pride ourselves on a social, collaborative environment that celebrates performance and supports employee well-being. We also believe in giving back. In the past two years, we’ve raised over €750,000, volunteered more than 8,000 hours and supported over 200 charities through our Morgan McKinley Million challenge.

We understand that these are challenging and uncertain times. Whether you are adjusting to a new rhythm of working remotely or coping with uncertainty, Morgan McKinley is here to help.

As you navigate the unfolding events, we hope our growingResource Library can be of service.

If you are contracting through Morgan McKinley or you are a client/candidate of ours (Morgan McKinley, M3S, LaCreme) and you have any queries regarding COVID-19, please email - the well-being of our contractors, candidates and clients is extremely important to us.

What is Morgan McKinley doing to protect its own employees during this time? 

Our people are and always will be our number one priority. As COVID-19 has evolved into a global health concern, Morgan McKinley made an early decision to askall employees to work from home until further notice. We acted fast to minimise the risk to our people and help lower the probability of the spread of the virus to our employees, their families and the communities where we operate. 

We continue to provide support to our employees by providing interactive development opportunities, from practical tips for working at home, through to safe online spaces to share how our people are processing all the changes to their lives, the company and the world around them. We also created opportunities for our employees to voice their opinions, plus frequent pulse surveys to assess employee sentiment on a more macro scale. 

You can find here more detail on the things we’ve been doing across our global business to support our colleagues.

Every day we go beyond to improve the lives of our clients, our candidates and our colleagues, because their success, means our success.

We’ve been in business since 1988. Depending on your perspective, that makes us positively ancient or practically Millennial.

Our perspective? We attribute our longevity to understanding two things: the inevitability of change, and the power of transformation.

That’s why we’re structured to take advantage of the latest tech and the most robust tools in the industry; and to benefit from the experiences, insights and ideas of every one of our colleagues.

This means a commitment to open communications, to building trust and to embracing change.

It means our story is still being written.

    I have been working at Morgan McKinley part-time (More than 5 years)


    It is so refreshing to work for a recruitment agency that invests so heavily in their people. I have been at Morgan McKinley for 5 years and have loved every minute of it.

    You are given the best platform for success - gaining access to the top tier clients in the Market with PSA's, and the freedom to BD new business and develop your manage your own markets.

    You are trusted to build your desk in your own way. MMK does not believe in a one size fits all KPI.

    Whether you are new to recruitment or an experienced consultant, I could not recommend MMK more.


    Genuinely cannot think of any!

    Keep doing what you're doing please!

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Morgan McKinley (Sydney) in December 2018.


    Morgan McKinley takes pride in ensuring a high calibre of talent across all their desks. When I was introduced to the business, I was pleasantly surprised by the professionalism and friendliness of everyone involved in the process.
