Recruitment Services

Recruit NZ is a professional recruitment agency based in Warkworth, New Zealand and servicing clients all over New Zealand.
We provide an end to end recruitment service – from person specification and position description, all the way through to 90 day review. We consider cultural and personality fit with you and your business as being equally important to skills and competencies, if not more so. 

Our recruitment team works with small and medium businesses – and has extensive experience with family-owned & managed businesses throughout New Zealand. We recruit at all levels from entry level to senior management.

Recruit NZ was established in 2008 by HR specialist Tanya Gray, who now has a team of ten in the Recruit NZ Warkworth office. Tanya has a background in recruitment, sales & senior management. Tanya understands small business management and has taught management of small businesses through Te Waananga o Aotearoa.

In addition to years of experience in recruitment, we have extensive experience in HR Management – so much so that we established a separate business devoted to HR & Strategic Management – Consulting HQ.

Recruit NZ specialises in recruitment for small to medium NZ businesses. We understand the recruitment process and follow proven and effective methods to hire you the right people for your business growth – saving you time and money.

“The team at RecruitNZ have been working with us to bring immigrant construction workers to NZ. They handle the recruitment process from initial screening to interviewing to liaising with various governments. They are invaluable to our business. Their local knowledge of the Filipino employment market and government processes is instrumental to ensuring a smooth, efficient recruitment process. They knows exactly what we are looking for in an employee and delivers every time.”

“Our Concrete Company engaged the services of Recruit NZ to help us find some Filipino concrete contractors to join our busy company. We have been extremely happy with the process that Recruit NZ has in place and we felt fully informed of what was happening the whole way through this journey. It is not a quick process and we could not have done this without a company like Recruit NZ on board to sort out all the legal requirements needed to employ someone from the Philippines. We are also thankful for the ongoing support we have had from Recruit NZ in helping out with the transition for the Filipino guys into our business. We would recommend this process to anyone looking to employ someone from the Philippines as we are more than happy with our 2 new workers. We are now looking to employ a few more candidates in the near future to help us grow our company.”
