[Video] 2018 Highlights at Morgan McKinley Sydney

Here at Morgan McKinley, we always like to celebrate our successes and our people. The below video showcases some of our 2018 highlights here in Sydney:

Clients, Candidates & External Partnerships

  • Client/candidate events like our Digital Transformation breakfast 
  • Celebrating our top NPS performer (the person receiving the best client and candidate feedback) from each quarter
  • Contractor collective drinks, including our doubly festive Christmas in July drinks and Christmas (in December) drinks, to celebrate and thank our Contractors for all their hard work
  • University partnerships, for example the Macquarie event that we ran in conjunction with the Business Society.

Corporate Social Responsibility and Wellbeing 

  • Our Corporate Social Responsibility program and ongoing commitment to the MMK Million, our goal to raise 1 million euros globally for our nominated charities; activities in 2018 included a tag-team static bike ride covering the distance from Sydney to Cairns, and volunteering days including wrapping Christmas gifts for St Vinnies
  • Our ongoing commitment to wellbeing including sessions from our in-house qualified nutritionist, and Wellbeing Week with a program that covered everything from meditation to healthy breakfasts and more
  • Sports events, like rock climbing and the JPMC run. 


  • Team lunches & activities - some spots you might have spotted our teams at in 2018 include Catalina, Bennelong and Bar Reggio, or trying their hand at axe throwing!
  • Platinum lunches, including delicious outings to Bathers’ Pavillion and Cafe Sydney 
  • A wine-filled trip to the Hunter to celebrate yet another Contractor milestone
  • Our annual overseas ‘Go Beyond’ trip to Queenstown, NZ - this year we’ll be off to Bali!

Our People

  • Welcome lunches for all our new starters
  • Our whole-business End of Quarter celebrations, including a some healthy competition over a round of crazy golf at Holey Moley
  • MMK work anniversaries, both individual as well as the business’s 30 Year Anniversary in 2018
  • Birthdays each month, celebrated with cake (of course!) and singing
  • A visit from our very own Santas for our internal gift exchange, followed by our Christmas party down at Woolloomooloo 

Other opportunities that we saw to have fun together

  • A photo shoot down at Macquarie’s Chair
  • Espresso martinis and ‘best dressed’ for the Melbourne Cup
  • And of course the odd Friday drinks...would we even be recruiters if there wasn’t the token visit to Ryan’s Bar or PJs?!

Some of the things we were too busy celebrating to capture...!

  • Cross-selling lunches, for the team that generated the most work for others across the business
  • Internal referral bonuses, for recommending talented individuals into the business
  • Celebrating our Top Performers each quarter, as well as our ‘Values Heroes’ & Researchers
  • Promotions - we’ve promoted more than a quarter of our consultants within the last 6 months of 2018!

2018 was a wonderful year here in Sydney, but this year we want to continue raising the bar and make 2019 our ‘Best Year Yet’! If you want to be a part of it (and why wouldn’t you!), reach out to Steph Newth, our Talent Acquisition Specialist, to find out more about our current opportunities on or +61 (0)2 8986 3102.
