Gallagher in the community

As Gallagher continues to grow as a leading technology company, providing high-tech farming systems and world class security solutions, there is a growing need for people with technical expertise.
This isn’t a challenge we’re facing alone however. Finding talented Software Engineers, Developers, Testers, Analysts and Architects in the Waikato is an ongoing challenge for many businesses – including ours – and we’re proud to do our bit to help.
Cultivate Trust and their initiative ‘Tech in the Tron’ aims to attract top tech industry professionals to the Hamilton area by showcasing the Waikato as a great place to live and work, linking candidates to potential job opportunities, and more broadly by demonstrating the tech innovation that is being powered from the region.
Coastguard - Raglan and Waihi BeachNew Zealand
Raglan and Waihi Beach Coastguard are made up of passionate volunteers who help to save lives at sea. Being an island nation, it’s no wonder so many New Zealanders have a passion for boating and water activities.
Coastguard ensured almost 8000 people were safely brought home last year. At Gallagher, we exist to protect what matters most, and this is a fantastic example of that.
Waikato UniversityNew Zealand
Waikato University is one of the top 100 educational institutes in the world, and it’s on the doorstep of our global headquarters in Hamilton. Fostering and supporting the next generation of innovation and talent ensures we’re protecting what matters most: the future.

Gallagher supported the community hub project through the donation of industry leading security hardware and software, ensuring the protection of the facility, its assets, and people.
Waikato Westpac Rescue HelicopterNew Zealand
The Waikato Westpac Rescue Helicopter was founded in 1987 and has undertaken more than 15,000 missions since its inception. Research suggests that if an injured person is transferred to hospital within an hour of an accident, their chance of survival increases from 30 to 60 percent. With so many New Zealanders enjoying the excitement and adventure of the country’s rugged bush and coastal terrain, Waikato Westpac Rescue Helicopters and air ambulance provide a critical service in the event of accident or injury.
Gallagher has sponsored the amazing team at Waikato Westpac Rescue Helicopters for more than 35 years to protect the lives of Kiwis young and old.
Gallagher Hockey CentreNew Zealand
The Gallagher Hockey Centre is Waikato’s main home of hockey for the region. Gallagher Hockey Centre sees 110,000 visitors each year and hosts thousands of games of hockey from juniors to representative players, to top international talent.

Bravehearts is Australia’s leading child protection agency. Supporting Bravehearts to provide industry-leading child protection training and education programmes, specialist child sexual abuse counselling and support services, as well as research and lobbying.
Men’s Shed Association is one of Australia’s largest community development organisations - men often have a hard time talking about their emotions, which can impact their mental health greatly. Men’s Shed provides facilities for men to meet, socialise and bond over a shared love of all types of community DIY projects: from fixing bikes for a school, making bird traps to protect the local habitat, or making furniture for charity.
Protecting people’s mental health is a great initiative, which is why the provision of security systems to protect and secure the expensive machinery and tools that each and every Men's Shed requires is an easy choice for Gallagher Australia to be leading.
Gallagher is committed to supporting Australian farmers by providing farm-fit solutions to help simplify the challenges faced by those working on the land. Our passion for finding long-term sustainable solutions to problems, and drive to protect what matters most, has culminated in a partnership with Landcare Australia.
Since 2018, Gallagher Australia’s Landcare Electric Fencing Grants have provided permanent electric fence materials to support graziers, land carers and community groups to undertake fencing projects with tangible environmental or sustainable agricultural outcomes.
Gallagher Landcare Electric Fencing Grants have supported over 60 conservation projects across Australia.

In 2022 our US team linked up with the Don Bosco Centers in Kansas City, an organisation that helps families in need by providing essential services, meals and helping raise people above adversity – with a special emphasis on children.
As well as providing financial support for this worthy cause, there has also been a hands-on part to this with the team working with the centers to fill fridges and pantries, as well as contributing toys, candy and much more.
Inquisitive minds have kept Gallagher humming for over 85 years, so we understand the importance of inspiring and preparing the next generation of leaders.
