Having begun my career in executive search with Odgers & Co (now Odgers Berndtson) in 1987, I have always recruited for Board and near-Board level roles across multiple industries and functions.

My company, Artichoke Partners, was established in 2011 to provide a very flexible and tailored service to UK and New Zealand based companies and is now solely focused on the latter. Over the last several years I have spent at least a month each year based in Auckland to create and develop a broad network of contacts within key businesses, allowing me to understand their culture and people needs.

Through these established relationships with clients across sectors such as construction, retail and consulting engineering, I can effect direct introductions for senior level and highly specialised roles. I also have a close relationship with a highly regarded search firm in Wellington. Because I am UK based, I can meet candidates in person to discuss opportunities and in detail. (previously Education Personnel) have been leaders in education recruitment since 1995. We have a passion for bringing together the best people in education and delivering quality results for our clients, candidates and partners. We have offices in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch, and support schools and centres with teacher recruitment all across New Zealand. We place teachers in permanent, fixed-term and daily relief positions, as well as offer other support such as professional development workshops, CV support and BT Mentoring.
