My experience

I got my first taste for recruitment in 2004 whilst working as Marketing and Training Assistant for an IT Recruitment specialist in the UK. Following that I took an in-house recruitment role and had an opportunity to really hone my sourcing and interviewing skills in the technical/digital arena.

Upon immigrating to New Zealand 5 years ago, I discovered my REAL passion, helping drive growth in my client’s business by finding them exceptional talent. I have recruited for a diverse range of clients during my career from blue chip companies, local and central Government clients, specialist software development and testing firms, IT consultancies and service providers. I have a well-established network of New Zealand based talent and I’m actively involved within the local IT community as a co-organiser of the SQL Server and Data Management User Group in Christchurch. I’m experienced in delivering international search projects for highly specialised and hard to fill positions.

"I have engaged Sarah as a recruiter wherever she has worked. I have always found her to be highly professional and she always delivers a high standard of candidate to us. I know that when I give her a brief, she will find us the right candidate."

"Could not have asked for a better level of service from Sarah. Throughout the process she made things clear and simple and she clearly cared about her clients (both employer and candidate) being successful. She has great communication and I felt comfortable dealing with Sarah at all times. Highly recommend her and a big thank you for your efforts!"

"I have worked with Sarah over the past 3 years both as an employer seeking staff and as a candidate. I commend Sarah for being the most approachable and most proactive of all the recruitment professionals that I have worked with over the years. Sarah has always taken the time to genuinely understand my recruitment needs and always been honest with me when advising how she can help. I have appreciated her regular communications which kept me up to date with her perception of market conditions as well as her energy and enthusiasm "
