Leaving a Role You Love

Breaking up is never easy, but somehow feels even more difficult when nobody's been wronged. It's incredibly hard to sit down with someone you're fond of, who you genuinely like and respect, and end your relationship. "It's not you, it's me," you fumble. "No, you've not done anything wrong.

Grinding Gears

I’ve been a bit crook this week but fear not, I’m at the stage where I have successfully transmitted my cooties to those around me. Working in a shared space is awesome, when you’re sick it’s like that scene at the end of The Planet of The Apes; where the…

Recruiter Networks

Wage Against The Machine

I’ve been in NZ for 6 years, 5 of which have been spent in this topsy turvy industry we call recruitment and although placements have been made in Wellington, Auckland is my focus and also my home. Not to alienate the Wellington readership but Auckland is amazing; gateway to the…
