When it comes to success, it's not just about numbers and metrics. It's about the culture and values that underpin an organisation. At First Grade, culture isn't just a buzzword—it's a way of life. Let's take a closer look at the unique culture that sets First Grade apart.

1. Nurturing the Competitive Spirit:

At First Grade, we understand the importance of competition, not just in the business world but in life itself. That's why, during our lunch breaks, you'll often find our team members on the nearby basketball courts in East Brisbane, lacing up their soccer boots or very worn shoes and honing their competitive edge. Engaging in sports fosters teamwork, discipline and an unrelenting drive to win. These qualities spill over into our work, where we're always striving to deliver the best results for our clients and candidates.

2. Health and Fitness:

Our belief in the connection between physical and mental well being is unwavering. We dedicate part of our lunch breaks to health and fitness activities, such as soccer. These sessions not only promote good health but also provide a break from the hustle and bustle of the office. They allow us to recharge and return to our desks with renewed energy and focus. It's an embodiment of our commitment to a healthy work life balance.

3. Embracing Family and Sporting Commitments:

We understand that life isn't just about work. At First Grade, we embrace the diverse lives our team members lead outside the office. Whether it's attending a child's Athletic carnival or supporting a family member in a sporting event, we value the importance of family and sporting commitments. We offer flexibility and support to ensure our team can balance their professional and personal lives effectively.

4. Collaboration and Inclusivity:

First Grade's culture is one of inclusivity and collaboration. We believe in bringing together diverse perspectives, experiences and backgrounds to foster creativity and innovation. Our team members, with their unique interests and sporting experiences, contribute to a dynamic and vibrant work environment.

5. Excellence and Accountability:

Just as we foster a spirit of competition on the soccer field, we also emphasise excellence and accountability in our daily work. We hold ourselves to high standards and take responsibility for our actions, ensuring that our clients and candidates receive the best service and support.

6. Personal Growth and Development:

Our commitment to personal and professional growth is unwavering. We support our team members in their pursuit of continuous learning and development, both in the field of recruitment and in their personal interests, including sports.

At First Grade, we're more than just a recruitment and labour hire company. We're a community that values health, family and a competitive spirit. Our culture is defined by our commitment to excellence, accountability and the celebration of individual passions and commitments outside of work.

If you're looking for a company that values a well rounded life, prioritises health and understands the importance of nurturing the competitive spirit, you'll find it all at First Grade.
