About Bodhi

Our mission is to recruit with purpose, putting people before profit, supporting businesses aligned to our values and empowering candidates to achieve their career goals

Enlightened Recruitment

Bodhi (pronounced Boe-dee) is a Pali and Sanskrit word which means 'to awaken or become enlightened'.


We take great pleasure in enlightening those we partner with in how we combine tried and tested recruitment techniques with cutting-edge innovations to create successful, long-term partnerships.

Since our launch in 2014, we have been dedicated to disrupting the recruiting and talent landscape by bridging the gap between traditional, large-scale transactional recruiters and rigid talent solution providers.

Specialist knowledge

Our strength lies in combining our extensive knowledge of the data driven marketing sector, the breadth of our professional connections, and decades of recruitment experience to deliver world-class results, time and time again.

Working in partnership

Through close collaboration, we offer expert advice and consultancy to solve the toughest hiring challenges, and then carefully select the most suitable candidates to ensure the best fit.


From one-off specialist hiring needs to ongoing outsourced support, our tailored solutions are moulded to ensure continued success.

Our values


We treat everyone with respect and adopt a people-first culture that helps us create successful partnerships with clients, candidates and staff.


We take great care to understand the intricacies of our evolving markets, hone our methodology and provide up-to-date insight and solutions.


We're experienced experts in our specialist markets and commited to providing leading solutions that match the right candidate to the right role every time.


We take a consultative approach to listen, advise, act and deliver, always providing an extremely high level of service to clients and candidates.

Our leadership team

We are a privately owned company established by directors John Howells and Zane O'Driscoll who shared a vision to provide expert recruitment solutions for organisations seeking the best data-driven marketing talent, while helping a network of specialists find their ideal job roles.

We've recently strengthened our leadership team with our new People Operations and Client Services Director, Cathy Knight. Cathy has joined us to help accelerate our strategic goals and sustainability ambitions.

Putting people
before profit

Our BCorp journey

We’re delighted to announce that we’re strengthening our leadership team, expanding our operations and building an even more sustainable business.


Meet our new People Operations and Client Service Director, Cathy Knight. Cathy will be leading us in our ambition to become B-Corp Certified next year.


We prioritise both people and purpose and it’s important that we embody and demonstrate this in everything we do. We're looking to working closely with other B-Corps and will be actively looking to create relationships with clients that are aligned with our views.
