We believe in our people’s success.

Proud of what we do.

Personal and professional development play a huge role in how we achieve at Hortus. Our unique self-led performance review process allows our people to take control of their career progression. We look at not only how well you do your job, but also how fulfilled you are, how challenged, and how happy. We seek out ways to utilise your unique skillsets, so that everyone is operating at their best.

Here's an invitation to change lives...

We hire on skills, passion, attitude, and values. We take pride in building teams that excel and last, so we don’t hire just anyone. 

When you apply for a role with us you can expect the following:

  1.  A quick yarn on the phone
  2. Hui for an interview, in the field when possible
  3. Reference checks
  4. Pre-employment medical, plus a drug and alcohol screen
  5. Psychometric testing (for some roles)
  6. Background checks (i.e. what you’ve posted on social media)
  7. Decision, and hopefully...
  8. Ka pai! A successful candidate offer!

What our employees say:

"I’ve never worked anywhere quite like Hortus before, and unfortunately I think any future job will now have a much higher standard to meet. I was offered unconditional support, laughs, challenges, genuine friendship, and the space to learn and grow. I feel like a much better person for working with the people in my team. I have better people skills, and more confidence in my abilities."

- Caitlin Brodbeck, former labour supervisor and P&C member (now travelling the world)
