After finding the recruitment industry over a decade ago I’ve been fortunate to work with some fantastic people and experience the industry from the bottom to the top. Starting out typing CVs, I’ve worked as a Consultant, Candidate Manager and Team Manager for a leading national agency; and most recently I was Country Manager for a global recruitment brand.
Over the past ten years, I’ve often found myself thinking that there must be a better way. Who’s out there challenging the way we’ve always done things? How can I do things differently? How can I be part of a movement dedicated to a better and more satisfying experience for all people (hiring managers, recruiters and candidates) right through the hiring process; on their first day in the new job; and those performance critical first few months?
Well, I’ve finally arrived at a place where I know how I can do this! Our team has massive enthusiasm for challenging the status quo and doing things better. We understand people and know that how we communicate with, manage and develop them is what matters most. I’m excited to be part of a company that is all about helping our clients to grow and transform their business through the talented, committed people they hire and engage.

I’d done every job under the sun. You name it – plumber, guy who put wicks in candles, waiter, bowling alley attendant, insurance salesman…I could go on, so decided it was time to go back to college. Specialising in computer science, I obtained a national diploma, a broad understanding of technology and, although appreciating IT and the profession, the knowledge it wouldn’t offer me the people contact I had come to understand I needed. From here, as you hear so much, I fell into recruitment.
That was 8 years ago, in which time I have worked for a global IT recruitment consultancy in the UK and, since moving to NZ, another global brand, a boutique specialist consultancy and a large NZ owned generalist agency. Starting out as a candidate manager I have moved through roles including Senior Consultant, Team Lead, General Manager and Principal consultant, for the majority, specialising in IT.
After all this experience I have come to realise something. All these companies are great at what they do but none really offer a true, game changing proposition to clients and candidates alike …whether it be connecting people with people, or with resources and opportunities, it applies across the board. Candidates, clients, passersby ….everyone involved will in some way have their lives positively affected by Talent Magnet.
