A bit about Kerri:

My previous recruitment experience has been in education and the health sector. Along with being a recruitment consultant, I’m also a qualified primary school teacher and Personal trainer so I have the ability to mix and mingle with a range of people from different walks of life.

I love interacting with others and helping people find and follow their dreams, finding it truly rewarding when I make the perfect match! I have 2 boys aged 12 and 10 which keep me very busy and, on my toes, so having that work life balance is extremely important to me and this shines through in the way I communicate empathetically with my clients and candidates.

Outside the office, you can find me coaching boxing classes, hitting the gym and spending time with my family and dog, Forrest.

A bit about Tyrie:

I’ve been in recruitment since the start of 2022, with a prior background in office support, finance, electricity, and event management.

I grew up all over the Wellington Region, and have worked in both public and private sectors here.

After graduating with a BA in International Relations and Religious Studies, I was seeking a career that would allow me to work directly with people to provide a service that would improve their lives. Most people work 40 hours a week. The mahi we do and the environment we do it in makes a huge impact on our lives. Not to mention the impact the right person has on a workplace. I love to help people find what they’re looking for, whether it be development, culture, or money.

Building relationships with clients and candidates is a crucial (and my favourite) part of my role.

When I'm not working, I can be found painting, crafting (ALL of the crafts), looking after the family vineyard with my dad, or reading on the train.

Our Core Values

These are the values that we live by. They mean something to us and guide us in our relationships with others:
