JV Recruitment are a long established Australian based recruitment agency for the Construction, Civil & Infrastructure, Traffic Management, Manufacturing and Energy & Renewables sectors. And they are also on a mission to do better for the planet.



Catering both to employers and job seekers, they have been leaders in their field for decades. With a strong nationwide network, decades of industry experience and highly passionate team members, JV Recruitment is the go-to agency for recruitment in these sectors.With corporate responsibility being more popular amongst business both small and large, it is truly heartening to see such commitment from organisations like JV Recruitment putting their talk into walk. Taking lead also sets a good example for others to follow. It’s inspiring stuff that sends positive ripples out to the community.

On Tuesday 4th October, the Kensington based company took time from the office to support a revegetation project at Westgate Park. Working with the team from Westgate Biodiversity they planted out 500 native plants and spent time weeding an area that had gone literally wild.


The team from JV.


Westgate Biodiversity is a community-based not-for-profit organisation. They grow and sell locally indigenous plants and are transforming Westgate Park into a natural, bush-like place for people to enjoy. They work to educate their members and the wider community on the importance of protecting and enhancing the natural environment, urban biodiversity, and healthy environments. They do this by planting locally indigenous plant species and encouraging volunteering and community engagement with the natural environment.


A company who love to ‘give back’.


Many thanks to the entire team for their enthusiasm for the work, they made very quick time with the planting and weeding chores they were assigned.

Individual actions really do matter! Individually we can really only make small differences to the world around us, but collectively our numbers add up. And if enough individuals are involved then forests can be grown!

We have a handful of organisations who purchase trees when they can. These organisations are masters of ingenuity when it comes to incorporating tree planting into their business practices.

The Institute of Public Accounts has supported one of our revegetation projects by purchasing a tree for every attendee at their recent Victorian Conference held in Ballarat, VIC. The trees (70) were planted in the district, in the weeks following the conference.
