I love working in the world of advertising, collaborating with clients and creatives to execute great campaigns and influence behavioural changes. I’m a creative thinker – I actually started out as a photographer! - and love to challenge the status quo.
As an Account Director, I’m responsible for client accounts within the agency, and the client-agency relationship. I think my experience on both sides of the agency floor has really helped me find creative ways to ensure profitability and growth for my clients over the years.
Recruitment is my jam. It's what I'm passionate about. My role as a Senior Recruitment Consultant is to work with new and existing business under HainesAttract, running the full gambit that recruitment encompasses; create recruitment strategies, processes and employer branded material (including job descriptions, advert content, etc), deliver recruitment end to end, and get their brand out there as much as possible through our super talented advertising and creative teams. You can't sell a secret!
I was also extremely lucky to have been seconded to LookSee Wellington for their pilot programme and have access to tens of thousands of amazingly talented individuals that are in high demand across the country.
Outside of work, I'm an avid world traveller and do so as much as the budget (and annual leave) will allow, huge fan of winter - which means snow - which means snowboarding and mulled wine, and wife to an amazingly talented Peruvian.
As Sales Manager, I am responsible for managing the full client service function of the business with a strong focus on sales. I hold accountability for key annual and quarterly sales targets and drive sales across the team of Account Executives at a transactional level.
Lipstick loving, gym obsessed, kiwi wannabe, sci-fi geek from the UK.
As a Delivery Consultant I work closely with our clients to ensure we are getting them the right candidates every time. I have a strong background in retail and love all things customer service! I get a buzz out of getting the right person for the job, whether that’s call centre staff or an amazing team leader.
In my free time you will find me helping out at the SPCA here in Wellington (its actually just an excuse to play with puppies) or outside enjoying the sunshine and all that Wellington has to offer.
I’m responsible for all financial processing relating to Workhere and creative services. I'm back at HainesAttract after a few years, having previously worked as an administrator here and then the Creative Project Manager in Wellington.

Overseeing both HainesAttract and Workhere, I'm always looking for ways we can provide innovation and great service to our clients. I’m passionate about creating a work environment that our staff can be proud of. We have a great team throughout the business who are led well – my role is to support them all (whilst not getting in the way).
Key learning for 2014: coaching an Under 7’s rugby team is very challenging...
I am recruiting exclusively for our largest client, Datacom Group. As a New Zealand-grown IT services company, Datacom offers IT management and consulting from cloud services, and traditional payroll services through to custom software development and business process management. I work on a variety of roles, doing whatever is needed to provide a speedy turnaround of CVs, great candidates and ensuring Datacom have robust recruiting processes behind their directions.
I love chocolate. I love my little family. And I love really good books that stay with you long after they are finished.
I’m a Technical Project Manager, Business Analyst and Digital Specialist with a passion for technology and online innovation. With over 8 years' extensive experience across digital media and products, I have a combination of skills mixing Project Management, Product Development, Business Analysis, and Digital Marketing. After stints in the digital departments of TVNZ in Auckland and the Financial Times in London, I’ve built up a knack for using technology to solve business problems which brings me to where I am now.
I’m currently heading up the tech team for Workhere, working across the business to come up with exciting ways to help companies find and hire top talent from all around the world. This covers managing the development and evolution of Workhere, and also the new LookSee platform. We’ve got a lot of ideas for the future of this tech and I’ve got the scribbly notebook pages and colourful process maps to prove it!
My likes include food, coffee, quality chocolate and travel… and on the geekier side, technology, movies, TV and really nice looking process maps.
Senior Designer in digital and graphic design. I’m lucky enough to be using the endless wonders of the Adobe Creative Suite as I spend my days receiving and working to briefs, developing concepts and meeting tight deadlines for a large portfolio of clients.

To quote Trump, "I know words, I have the best words..."
When I'm not borrowing them from bronzed presidents, I'm writing words for client campaigns, managing content for social media, and supporting the team to develop media strategies for client campaigns. My varied creative role keeps me busy - in the office writing copy one day, out on a shoot the next - and as Comms Manager I'm crafting communications pieces and contributing to the brand strategy for our business - it's gonna be eeuge!
I also have the lofty post of Office DJ - a role I take very seriously.
I have a mild online shopping addiction, and pride myself on my knowledge of celebrity (and general) gossip - that's why my hair is so big, it's full of secrets.
Can be found: eating avocado toast, running away to music festivals and binging bad reality TV.
I have been brought into the business to manage some of our key recruitment clients across Aotearoa. It is my job to ensure their recruitment needs are being met, sourcing some of the best talent in NZ and abroad, identifying new recruitment opportunities and ensuring a seamless end-to-end recruitment process from start to finish for both clients and candidates.
My dad had a dream 20 years ago that I was going to be an All Black and to his disappointment I recently made him realise that Rugby is very similar to Recruitment. To begin with, they both start with the letter R, it’s highly competitive, you win some, you lose some and when you win you have a drink to celebrate (sometimes even when you lose). Moral of the story: Whiskey and fried chicken are a couple of my favourite things in life.
Born and bred Wellingtonian, Samoan and Chinese decent. I love my family and friends (I am one of ten siblings), love sport and music, afraid of heights, terrified of rats and spiders.
Key achievement in the last 12 months: Manager of Tawa’s Premier rugby side that won the 2016 Jubilee cup.
A day in the life of an account executive includes proofing, booking and listing my clients’ ad requests, as well as keeping up to date with the most innovative media channels to execute these on in order to attract the best candidates.

I’m an amateur food reviewer with an undying love for wine, every weekend you will find me “brunching” and mulling over Sunday magazine’s Shoe of the week.
Having worked previously within the client services side of the business, I've found a love for thinking outside the box when it comes to employer branding and recruitment solutions for our clients. Now as Project Manager, I get to oversee and coordinate our most recent and innovative solution - LookSee.

In my spare time, you’ll find me at my sewing machine designing clothes or making and selling accessories on my online boutique KOOPY. I also have a slightly problematic shopping addiction, but it’s okay really because they’re all “investment pieces”.
With a Master’s degree in Marketing under my belt, I went on to gain valuable industry experience in the commercial property world, supporting national marketing campaigns and daily marketing and brand promotion, before deciding I wanted to try my hand in the advertising industry.

I’m a sucker for 90s RnB, turtlenecks and wine. When I’m not at the office, you can find me at my local coffee haunt with the gals or going to town on a cheese platter.
With a degree in Marketing Management, I have gained a wide variety of experience in various roles both in sales and marketing. After university I took a marketing internship at a farming company. Here I not only took part in the development of a new marketing and brand strategy, I also gained extensive knowledge on farming, premium animal products, and how to tell a steer from a heifer. Previous to this role I also have experience working in the media industry, providing media and marketing solutions to businesses helping them strive in their markets and grow their businesses.

I’m the MD of Round Peg, so I get involved in all sorts of discussions, decisions and activities that add value to our clients, and our business. I love the recruitment industry, which is why it’s kept my interest for over 25 years (I started very young of course!). I’m always happy to share my knowledge and experience, and still get a real kick out of finding solutions for clients, especially those really gnarly problems around how to find great people.
If I can spend time with my family, potter around at home, work through my cookbooks, and sit down with a glass of wine and good book, with the odd adventure here and there, I’m pretty content!
I look after all our Wellington clients making sure we understand their needs, how we can help them and making sure we do to the best of our ability. I’ve done this for a while now and have to say my clients are great.
I’m busy learning about antiques so one day I’ll find something really valuable for just a few dollars – let’s hope I recognise it when I see it!
As part of the recruitment team for our clients, it is my job to ensure that no stone is left unturned when looking for my next potential star. I look for potential in the market and ensure that I identify the right fit for the right role. It is incredibly rewarding to help both clients expand their business and for candidates to achieve their dream job.
Originally from the Emerald Isle of Ireland, I am enjoying all that New Zealand has to offer. I love country music and my ideal afternoon would include good company, good music and an unlimited supply of wine and food. I have dreams of becoming the next MasterChef and marathon runner...however I love eating food more than I like cooking, and running hurts my knees... someday ;)
I am the go-to for IT support in the company. I manage our technical supplier relationships, provide BA and administration support to the busy Sales and Service and Finance teams.

When I’m not in the office, you can find me teaching yoga or climbing and tramping in the mountains.

My interests outside the tech side are pretty much outdoors - rugby, fishing, tramping and, of course, finding new Central Otago Pinot Noirs.
My drivers licence always seems to be changing.. Moving State, moving country & continent, from the Northern Hemisphere to the Southern part of the world.. and that’s how I’ve been LIVING my life to the fullest!

Back from living in India, I'm experiencing cool New Zealand - traveling around the cities, beaches, parks, waterfalls and whatever else it has to offer. I'm yet to see lot of places but so far it has amazed me and my family. Enjoyed pick-your-own moments - blueberries, strawberries and vegetables to name a few, and will continue.
