The Cantlie Story

Connecting Canberra – Connecting Careers

Cantlie was established in February 2005 with the goal of providing specialist recruitment services to Canberra and the region. With many years of experience in the employment industry, our Principal Keith Cantlie saw there was a need for a new way of doing business in the recruitment profession. Rather than measuring success on volume and throughput, Cantlie approached its work with clients on a consultancy basis, providing deep industry expertise, delivering quality outcomes and focusing on continually adapting to market needs.

Over the past decade Cantlie has built a highly recognised brand and earned the reputation of being one of the leading Executive Career and Recruitment Strategist in the Canberra region. Cantlie has developed trusted and genuine professional connections, working across the Not for Profit, Education, Private and Public Sectors.

Cantlie’s unique approach is supported by its continued connection to Canberra through professional relationships, community engagement and sponsorships. Keith actively contributes to the community as a board member of the Canberra Business Chamber and the Canberra business community . Additionally, Cantlie provides support to community organisations such as St Vincent de Paul Canberra and Goulburn, Lifeline Canberra and Menslink. Additionally Keith actively worked to establish the St John Paul II College in Gungahlin and was Community Council Chair of the college for seven years. Cantlie also had a leading role in the sponsorship of the Aquis Canberra Brumbies coaches from 2013 to 2015 inclusive.  Cantlie’s consulting model now delivers Executive Selection Services, Executive Career Strategy Advice and Skills/Recruitment Advisory Services along with a range of dedicated insourced recruitment services.

Over the last decade Cantlie has built a brand that is  known for its:

  • Executive selection services relating to the appointment of Chief Executive/Executives for Not For Profit, Education and Private Sector Organisations.
  • Insourced Recruitment Services; Cantlie currently provides these services under a contracted arrangement for the University of Canberra and previously provided these innovative services for 3 years to Catholic Education Canberra and Goulburn.
