Finding the talent
of the future
Better connections – better outcomes.
The pursuit of uncommon excellence.

Exceptional candidates are hard to find.
So we work harder to find them.

Everyone knows that the right person in a critical role will generate results that far exceed the norm. The key is locating those people and matching them against the opportunity. We believe that processes and databases can take you quite a long way but truly exceptional candidates won’t necessarily present themselves through the normal channels. So we take the time to look beyond the obvious, and search the world to ensure a successful outcome.

About us

With a background in the property and finance industries, I’ve learned that nothing succeeds unless it’s built on solid foundations. It applies to physical structures, and it applies to organisations and relationships too.

Work with us, and we’ll take the time to understand your organisational values, company culture and core strategies as well as the key competencies you need in your team. And if you’re on the other side of the equation – as a candidate searching for your next role – we’ll focus on your long-term career and lifestyle goals. It’s all about building a partnership that generates more than just short-term gains.

We specialise in helping New Zealand organisations locate talent for top-tier and specialist roles, where the right recruit might not be found amongst the usual suspects. The world is full of opportunities, and we know how to help you grasp them.
