Consultant - Pukekohe
Born and raised in the small King Country town of Te Kuiti, Don was enticed by the promise of world travel from the NZ Navy and ‘flew the nest’ to follow his dream. After completing his working OE, he was stationed in Auckland upon his return and never left the bright lights of the big city.
Don’s resilience and ‘can do’ attitude shone through as two consecutive careers; one as a production manager and the other as an operations manager. These careers choices lead Don into the intriguing world of recruitment, where he firmly planted his roots and his career has flourished ever since.
Don has held recruitment consultant roles with an Auckland based recruitment company for the past 9.5 years; 3 in Penrose and 6.5 in Pukekohe. His local contacts and knowledge give him a winning advantage over other consultants and he looks forward to meeting clients and candidates to be part of your employment solution.
Don describes working with Auckland’s youth as his biggest passion. He finds fulfilment when placing the right candidate with the right job, and this is magnified tenfold when assisting young people to reach their goals, develop work ethic and take on responsibilities in their new roles.
Self-described as an all-round sports nut, Don can be found at many local events over the weekends with his partner Tere.
