Jo Henderson

During my 17 years in recruitment, I’ve built longstanding and loyal relationships, with my clients and candidates. I’ve loved getting to know the incredible talent we have in the Auckland market. I’m known for being a realist, and for always finding ways to deliver concrete and well thought out solutions.

Originally from the Bay of Plenty, I moved to Auckland in my last year of high school, went on to complete a Bachelor of Education. After a stint spent in Europe working as a primary teacher and a ski guide, I returned to New Zealand, started working as a recruiter and haven’t looked back since!

I understand the importance of listening and I always keep everyone in the loop with clear and consistent communication. I’m in this business because I care about finding the right people for the right job. I take the time to get to know you and understand what it is you really need – as an individual and as a company. I’ve a skill for identifying what people need.

I believe in developing a strong community of clients and candidates. For me, it’s all about partnerships and building relationships that last. I’m a creative, out-
of-the-box thinker and I get on well with my clients – who come from a diverse range of industry sectors. I utilise highly effective strategies to source and match
candidates, which is why I’ve recruited successfully for 17 years.

I love what I do and I was lucky to find my niche early on in my career. I’m proud of my strong client base and of the wonderful results I’ve witnessed in my candidate’s careers. I’m honoured to be the consultant of choice for so many clients and candidates across business support and middle management for temporary, contract or permanent positions in any industry sector.

I love the variety of being able to work with hugely diverse people and businesses. It keeps life interesting, that’s for sure! I’m driven by our values of integrity, responsibility, and transparency and I bring positive energy to everything I do – both in the office and at home with the family. Being a recruiter is different every day and full of surprises!
