Director & Principal Consultant
After studying business at University I thought a career in Business Analysis and Project Management awaited me. After returning from Sydney in 2005 I fell into a career in recruitment as so many people do and I have not looked back since! Now 9 years later I have built my experience and networks across both the Auckland and Wellington markets recruiting for a wide range of roles from Technology, Telecommunications, Product Development, Finance and Technical Sales. I have built my reputation on delivering results for my clients on roles that others said were too hard and wouldn’t spend time on. I really enjoy getting to know a client’s culture as making a great placement is about matching personalities to company cultures as well as technical ability. My approach is very consultative and I always keep my clients up to speed with the progress on their role and will engage them in the process as much or as little as they would like depending on their busy schedules. Outside of work my time is taken up by my 7 year old son and Saturday morning sports, given half the chance you can find me out on the golf course or with a line in the water trying to catch the one that got away last time!
Director & Principal Consultant
My career has been a steady progress from hospitality, agency recruitment, telecommunications sales and internal recruitment. Having exposure to such different industries has allowed me to grow and meant that I have a very rounded background. These industries have allowed me to get a good understanding of human nature while the exposure to quite complex environments has meant I understand people’s needs and know how to identify the best talent for specific roles. I believe my greatest assets are strong people skills and an ability to communicate effectively at any level. This understanding of people and my ability to develop strong relationships, both professional and personal, allows me to get the most out of any situation. Through out my career I have specialised in end to end recruitment as well as undertaking search assignments for high level hard to fill positions. Although I have predominately focussed on the IT Arena, I have had success in different verticals due to my ability to connect with people at all levels. I have a passion for working alongside clients, really getting to know their businesses and getting results. I am a team player and have always enjoyed working within a like minded people. My high set of moral values and work ethic, mixed with a sense of humour and down to earth attitude, puts me in good stead for further professional development. I have a young family and am an avid sport lover. I enjoy keeping fit either through boxing, mixed cardio or taking the dog to Woodhill and I enjoy getting into the great outdoors as much as possible. If given the opportunity fishing would be my fulltime occupation.
Senior Account Managert
Originally from Scotland, I moved to New Zealand in my late teens and quickly settled into the Kiwi lifestyle. I gained exposure to the telecommunications industry through part time work at Visionstream while carrying out my university studies and also completed AUT’s compulsory cooperative education placement working within the build department. After graduating from AUT in 2013 with a Bachelor of Business in Human Resources and Management, I took a full time position at Visionstream as a project coordinator assisting on RBI and Proactive projects. The main motivation towards achieving a degree in Business was to open the doors into a profession where I can put my strong interpersonal skills to use and build a career in recruitment. I have been lucky to begin my career at Halo Consulting, assisting the consultants uphold a high level of service by connecting great candidates with valued clients.
After over 11 years experience in the Telecommunications/ICT Industry specifically in Business Sales, Account Management, Relationship Management, People Leadership & Business Operations I have moved into the world of Technology Recruitment. Throughout my career I have demonstrated loyalty, commitment and driven significant positive change with exceptional results & I now bring these attributes into Technology Recruitment where I consistently deliver great results. I pride myself on my ability to quickly form rapport and engage with both clients and colleagues. My persona is inclusive and I am confident engaging with candidates and managers within all levels of business.
In my role at Halo I work with a mix of new and existing clients, getting to know their requirements and finding great people for them. I work with senior candidates in the contracting and permanent markets to understand their career ambitions and find them the best possible career opportunities. I have been specializing in IT technology recruitment for several years and have worked with a range of clients from household names to startups. Outside of work, you can often find me out on the water fishing around Hauraki Gulf or doing some DIY around the house. My two year old daughter keeps me busy and so do all our pets, we currently have a cat, a dog, a rabbit and a lizard so our house is a bit of a zoo.
I have spent over 14 years in Talent Acquisition, working across internal, agency and outsourcing. I’ve built and led teams, and use my extensive experience in strategic HR to ensure that my clients are making the best sourcing decisions to achieve their objectives. Originally from the UK, I’ve been living in New Zealand for 12 years and consider this awesome part of the world home now. From planning to placements, I partner with my clients as a trusted advisor and a sounding board for new initiatives. I’ve a passion for building high performance teams and leadership capability through diligent Executive Recruitment; working with boards and executive teams to future proof their business by hiring the right talent at the right time. I’ve built specialist transformation teams delivering some of New Zealand’s most complex programmes of works from mergers to platform migrations. I’m an energetic, book worm with a thirst for life and a love for business.
After graduating with an Honours Bachelor of Business Studies, I immediately started off my career in Recruitment. Having worked with many start-up’s and large multination companies across Ireland – I then moved to Auckland, New Zealand to continue my career in recruitment. Apart from my clients and candidates remembering me from my Strong Irish accent, many know me for being consistent, personable and always delivering to a high standard. I have a passion for the technology industry and thrive to continuously learn and keep up to date with the latest trends. I truly believe in putting people first. I learn and understand what people need, what is important to them and find the best way to work together moving forward. My tailored approach allows me to find the impossible candidate, provide multiple contractors for a programme of work or simply providing a last-minute resource to help deliver a project in time. When I am not in work, I enjoy being active by playing football, going to the gym, long walks and trying new sports. I love trying new things to do, finding places to explore and enjoying my life in New Zealand.
Just another Englishman living the dream in New Zealand! Having a background in Technology and IT, working for a large international Cloud and Telecommunications company, I have turned my attention to Technology Recruitment. I’m always keen to meet new people, make meaningful connections and most importantly place the best people in the right places. When I’m not working, I’m exploring all of the blessings New Zealand has to offer whether it be up a mountain, on a beach or having brunch on the wharf.
I am originally from England and since starting my career I have gained a variety of experience working in range of positions within Finance, Contact Centre & Recruitment. I have spent the past two and a half years working and travelling around Australia and Asia. I have recently moved to New Zealand and I have already fallen in love with the lifestyle and in my spare time I love cooking, exploring new places and art.
My recruitment career started 5 years ago, after graduating with a bachelor degree in Organisational Psychologist. Since then, I have gained experience working in different industries: Franchise, Engineering, Telecommunication & IT. During this time, I have always shown commitment, great results, and a positive attitude. My purpose as a Recruiter is to build excellent relationships with every candidate I meet, help them discover new opportunities, and to reach their potential.Originally from Lima, Peru. I have recently moved to New Zealand, and I already can say that it has been the best decision. In my spare time, I enjoy going to the beach, cooking and watching a good soccer game.
Growing up in Auckland and finishing my schooling on the North Shore I worked in various different customer service/retail assistant jobs. I then gained an administration role at a Private Training Establishment on the North Shore where I stayed for over 5 years. As the company evolved into a Senior Secondary School I moved with the company to become PA to the CEO. Within this job I had a lot to do with organising and hosting events, supporting the management team and overall administration duties. When not in the office I am often found out with the horses, on a paddleboard or road tripping to a beach somewhere in the country!
I began my career in London, UK where I studied to become a member of the ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants). My previous experience is mainly within the public practice area where I was trained and developed my skills in accounting and audit. Once I finished my training my partner and I took off to Central and South America where we travelled for 6 months exploring the depths of the Amazon jungle and hiked the peaks of the Andes and then decided to set up shop in New Zealand. Since moving to New Zealand I took it upon myself to come away from the world of practice and to learn a new set of skills here at Halo. My day to day would be to look after the financial records as well as making sure that everyone is paid on time. I would say that I am hard working, driven by the problem solving nature of finance and I am committed to role at hand, I believe in good customer service through all aspects of my role and that a little bit of kindness can go a long way
