Hi! We’re
Alchemy Recruitment!

Our Story

Establishment and Founding Values (2011)

Founded in 2011, Alchemy emerged from the shared vision of two seasoned recruitment professionals, Forrest Briggs and Nicholas Cheung. Drawing from their extensive backgrounds in both large international agencies and boutique firms, they envisioned a recruitment agency that could deliver more personalized and tailored solutions to clients.

Diverse Industry Expertise (2011-2022)

Rooted in the dynamic field of mining, Alchemy swiftly grew its expertise across diverse sectors. Briggs and Cheung leveraged their experience to serve clients in mining, resources, construction, and heavy industries. This initial foundation laid the groundwork for what would eventually become five distinct divisions.

Evolution and Expansion (2011-Present)

From its humble beginnings, Alchemy has evolved into a multifaceted organization comprising five key divisions:
  1. Mining & Resources: Our roots in mining remain integral, forming the cornerstone of our expertise.
  2. Construction & Engineering: As demands grew, we expanded into the construction and engineering sectors, offering comprehensive solutions.
  3. Corporate Services: Understanding the diverse needs of businesses, we established a division dedicated to corporate services.
  4. HSE (Health, Safety, and Environment): Recognizing the paramount importance of safety, we’ve developed a specialized division focused on HSE.
  5. Government (Established in 2022): Responding to the evolving landscape, we launched our newest division in 2022, dedicated to serving the unique recruitment needs of government agencies.

Passion for Excellence (Since Inception)

At the heart of Alchemy’s journey is a genuine commitment to delivering exceptional client results. From the outset, our founders instilled a passion for excellence that permeates every facet of our organisation.
