Client Services Director
My job centres all around the Client. Having been in recruitment for over 10 years, I now have the pleasure of working across both Gaulter Russell and Numero with the aim of promoting our core value ‘to excite the customer’. What is great in my opinion is that we partner with some of the best companies in the country and we genuinely see ourselves as extensions of their brands in the market. I also run all GRN training and development for the consulting team, making sure that every interaction with us gets the results you are after, both as a client or as a candidate.
Once a recruiter always a recruiter, so I still keep busy through recruiting senior permanent Marketing, Sales and Category roles specifically in the FMCG and Consumer industry, which I have specialised in for ages. I believe good business is all about doing work with people that you enjoy and value, and I get great satisfaction out of not only finding people great new roles, but also seeing businesses excel as a result of that talented individual.
Outside the office I’ll be on the tennis court or at yoga. I love a good whiskey, and spending time with my family either in my hometown of Timaru or with my in-laws in Canada. Also, if you’ve seen any good new Nordic crime dramas or a pretentious book I can suggest to my book club, then I’m all ears!
