Auckland Central & South People Partner, Connector

I support growing businesses with their people solutions, from gaining clarity to engagement and development of their people.

Over the last 10 years, I've worked in both internal and agency recruitment helping all sorts of different people find their path. I've got experience working across high volume and strategic targeted recruitment models. I've had the pleasure of working in both large complex and small also complex businesses. I enjoy working closely with owners to help develop and execute on their vision. It’s incredibly rewarding to see the prosperity and happiness that comes from the right talent strategy.

Like many people, I half fell into, half chose my career. 10 years into my working career I realised I’d been allowing life to happen to me without thinking about my long term why. So I've made a conscious move to join a business with a mission I'm passionate about and truly interested in. The Sprout model is a bit different to a traditional recruitment model - and in fact, we're not a recruitment agency at all, finding amazing people is about a third of what we offer. Sprout's offering includes a range of “people related” services that to me are integral to the ongoing success of a business, such as strategic planning around organisational development and growth, creating a unified vision, values and purpose and developing a highly productive, engaged culture.

I love learning about what people are doing and how they are changing their market. My fiance owns a couple of restaurants and I've watched first hand the challenges, blood, sweat, and tears that go into making your dream your reality - and the subsequent joy at growth and success of said dream. Sprout is all about helping build Kiwi success stories and contributing to that gives me huge satisfaction. What's your why?
