Kym Farnham


Senior Consultant - Accounting & Finance

My recruitment career started shortly after graduating with my BA degree in Psychology and Communications. I worked for one of South Africa’s most reputable recruitment agencies for three years, as a generalist recruiter, learning about various industries, meeting a variety of different people and experiencing many diverse cultures. This is where my passion for recruitment, and having the ability to place the right person in the right role began.

In 2016 I was approached by a large international retailer to join their in-house Talent Acquisition team to support all five trading divisions, recruiting at all levels. After 18 months I was promoted to an HR Business Partner and although varied, this role still enabled me to continue doing what I love; recruitment.

With almost six years’ experience in recruitment, my ability to foster strong relationships built on trust and relate to people on a personal level is the key to my success. I have been able to partner with candidates and leaders across businesses to improve the capability of what I believe are an organisations’ greatest asset – its’ people. I am excited to relocate to NZ and be back in a specialist role with Gaulter Russell Numero, as a Senior Accounting & Finance Consultant.

Outside of work, spending time with my hubby and beautiful daughter are at the top of my priority list but as I am originally born and bred in the rainbow nation of South Africa, braai’s (BBQ’s) and boerewors (it’s like a sausage, with a 100-different amazing flavours) and a good glass of red wine are my staple weekend thing.
