The Cantlie Story

Your partner in professional recruitment

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 recruitment consultancies in the Canberra region. Focused on delivering value to clients through a transparent partnership pricing model and defined methodologies, Cantlie has developed trusted and genuine professional connections, working across the Private, Public (Commonwealth & ACT Government), Education and Not for Profit Sectors.

Cantlie’s unique approach to recruitment 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 St John Paul II College. Cantlie provides support to community organisations such as St Vincent de Paul Canberra and Goulburn, Lifeline Canberra as well as taking a leading role in the sponsorship of the Aquis Canberra Brumbies coaches from 2013 to 2015 inclusive. Cantlie’s consulting model now delivers both executive and specialist recruitment along with a range of HR solutions which includes dedicated managed & insourced recruitment services.

Over the last decade Cantlie has provided recruitment services, including executive search and selection across the following areas of expertise; Executive, General Management, Accounting and Finance, Economics and Policy, Project and Program Management, Strategy and Consulting, Procurement and Contract Management and Human Resources.
