Bridgette Johnstone

In the past 12 incredible years in recruitment, I have earned a reputation as a Senior Consultant with a commitment, first and foremost, to exceptional service, with a dose of good listening and a keen intuition for finding great matches for my clients and candidates. I’m genuinely invested in the people I work with and I’ll work all hours of the day to get them the results they really deserve. Some say it’s my super-human work ethic that puts me in a league of my own!

I am as considerate as I am passionate in my Account Management style. I’m really proud of my track record for delivering on my clients’ needs every single time – what can I say, I love what I do! Originally from Hawkes Bay, I completed my Bachelor of Arts at Massey University in Palmerston North, before going into a career in Social Work in Wellington. I ended up overseas in the UK for a stint, where I travelled and worked for ten years, ending up working for a large global Investment Bank within the Private Equity Marketing team. It was quite the adventure!

From Social Work to Investment Banking or Business Support roles, to traveling extensively throughout Europe, Central America, South East Asia and India – the focus of my life has always been people-centric. Ending up in a recruitment role on my return to New Zealand was one of the easiest decisions I ever made – I found it fresh and energising and haven’t looked back since! I’m so grateful for the diverse experiences my career has brought me while recruiting for the temporary, permanent and contract arenas across Business Support and Middle Management.

I have recruited hundreds of candidates to positions ranging from PA, to Marketing Coordinator, to HR Manager and Senior Account Manager. My extensive experience, coupled with my own employment background, enables me to deliver on every brief with precision, insight, and understanding.

I am driven by the deep satisfaction that comes from problem-solving for my clients, working to tight deadlines, facing new challenges every day and helping my candidates to shape their future with the career choices that most excite them! I love getting stuck into understanding a company’s culture, or a candidate’s wants and needs, and finding a great match for my clients and candidates alike.
