Tell us about your role at Circuit?

After three years at Circuit in Melbourne, I excitedly moved home to Christchurch, New Zealand, to establish Circuit New Zealand. Our office is in Central Christchurch, and we recruit nationally, and I am up in Auckland and Wellington a lot. 
I partner with New Zealand Software Leaders and Founders, advising how best to attract, interview and secure the best Software, QA and DevOps Engineers. 
I work with Product Companies, particularly in HealthTech and Fintech, Consulting Companies, and Enterprise New Zealand clients in Banking, Insurance and FMCG.


What 3 things do you enjoy most about what you do? 

I love that we positively impact clients and candidates, growing careers and teams. Recently, I witnessed tears of joy when I presented an offer. It highlighted how much these opportunities mean to our candidates. 

It is satisfying to play an instrumental part in helping candidates grow their careers, develop and get promoted with your clients. 

Career long learning, in technology recruitment, in particular, you are constantly learning new technology, new ways of working, and new ways of engaging and attracting new candidates and new clients!


What do you enjoy the most about working at Circuit?

We reap what we sow, and we work hard! 
We're are optimistic and resilient and support and celebrate each other's achievements. 
I also enjoy our collaborative environment where you can have your say and feel comfortable from the start, regardless of your seniority! We embrace new technology and are always looking for an edge. Lastly, we celebrate our wins and enjoy each other's company. We love a nice restaurant and a winery tour!


Tell us about your proudest professional achievement? 

I'm really proud of working together with the team in Melbourne to set up Circuit NZ. We started in a challenging period, and we've adapted to challenging market conditions and new ways of working.

I never dreamed of "remote working" in recruitment and Zooms in the past, but it's here to stay, and I love it!


What advice would you give to people looking for a new role?

Please make a list of non-negotiables vital to you in your next role, and access each opportunity against them! 
Also, setting expectations upfront around your career goals, expectations from a manager and what your next 1-3 years look like is crucial. If you have done this, you're putting yourself in a good position.


What do you enjoy doing outside of work?

I've been doing up my house; I'm enjoying some DIY at the weekend. I also rope in my brother and old man, and they love it! Seriously. I've got some sweet overalls and a chainsaw nowadays.

I watch every Crusaders and Warriors game. I get to the Adventure park on my Mountain bike, but my passion is motorbikes and riding them around the Banks Peninsula.


Which of the Circuit values resonates most with you and why? What are the values that drive you?


I enjoy being part of the tight knit NZ Software Community.  I'm excited that events are back up and running again as I love attending meetups and industry events again.
