​We're growing! again!

To keep up with demand, we're looking for an outgoing, energetic Candidate Manager to join the team.

You'll have previous experience in IT, whether it be in Service Desk, Service Delivery or Project Support.   What we're looking for is someone who understands IT and how all the different roles fit together.  For example, you'll know the difference between a Technical and Process BA and have a basic understanding of relevant technical qualifications available that candidates may have.

Sometimes you'll find yourself being a sympathetic ear to a candidate's challenging work situation, other times you'll have your nonsense monitor on overdrive to analyse what you're being told.  The end goal is to find the right person for the right role

Remember the memory game you played as a kid?  That's Recruitment!  Remembering that one thing from a conversation or a CV that connects that person perfectly to the role, then helping them through the process to offer.

On top of the salary, Spotify, short Fridays and coffees/herbal tea/matchas, there's a generous commission component for every successful candidate you find that we help into a new position.  No doughnuts here!

We're dedicated, and relationships are our priority. We pride ourselves in being honest throughout the recruitment process, making sure we connect the right person with the right role and organisation.

The role involves:

  • Using search platforms and networks to find the right people for the right role

  • Interviewing people who may be suitable

  • Creating a profile to market the candidate to the client

  • Creating adverts for roles to post on various platforms

  • Working with the Client Manager to help people through their recruitment experience

  • Celebrating successful placements

Ideally, what you'll have:

  • A relevant Bachelor's Degree (tell us why it's appropriate!)

  • Strong word and PDF formatting skills help a lot

  • A great memory

  • An optimistic outlook

  • Experience in Service Desk, Service Delivery,  Project Support or Recruitment,

The key is having the optimistic belief that there's the correctly skilled, open to a change, person in Wellington for the role you're looking for, and it's your goal to find them before someone else does!

We're looking to bring someone as soon as possible but will wait for the right person.  Please apply if you think this could be you. 

There's the chance to really develop a career here, find your speciality and let us help you grow it!
