We’ve been doing this since 2009.  Spotting a gap in the market for a quality rec-to-rec offering, founder Jonathan Rice set up in a spare room and began calling recruitment agencies. Luckily it seemed to work. The home office became an Auckland office and Christchurch, then Wellington, followed.  The service offering also grew.  Following our initial focus on recruitment agencies, Sean Walters joined in 2011 and we started helping in-house recruitment and HR teams grow too.  Rice Consulting is now widely regarded as New Zealand’s premier rec-to-rec and HR recruitment specialist.  Our reputation has grown too.  We blog, we speak and we host events all focussed on the recruitment and HR industry.  Yep, and we still love recruiters.


We provide permanent and contracting recruitment services to the Recruitment and HR industries. Our clients gain access to the best Recruitment and HR professionals through our use of traditional, online, direct approach and social media sourcing strategies.
