Rachel joined the Customise Talent team after 5 years within a reputable Auckland based recruitment firm.  Her experience spans 8 years as a member and division Chair of the NZ Food & Grocery Council and over two decades in Senior BDM and Sales positions,

Rachel’s core focus is on enlisting top talent for NZ’s business community with a core focus across Sales, Marketing, Accounting and Executive appointments.

“While the foundation of my experience lies within the consumer sector my passion is delivering high value recruitment outcomes through building a deep understanding of my clients’ business and a holistic profile of my candidates. This approach has allowed me to successfully transverse across industry sectors and role levels”.

If you’re seeking a personable, astute and dedicated recruitment professional to partner with, contact Rachel today for a confidential discussion. 

  1. As a client Rachel delivered time and time again with high quality candidates, perfectly suited to the role with the right balance of skill and experience, but more importantly the right fit for our company culture. She spends time truly understanding your business, what your trying to achieve and the DNA of your people - all of which are critical factors for a relationship manager in the recruitment space, however are very seldom practiced. I can highly recommend Rachel as a recruitment partner of choice to any prospective business owner or leader.

  2. I had the pleasure of working with Rachel as my recruitment partner for Kimberly-Clark New Zealand from 2015 - 2017. During this time, Rachel was diligent, professional, and energetic in determining potential candidates that could best contribute to our culture of delivering exceptional business performance. Rachel has a passion for people which makes her a delight to work with for both the candidates and companies.

  3. Every time we had a position to fill, the candidates put forward by Rachel turned out to be the best for the job. We were particularly impressed by her not swamping us with CVs but only forwarding those of people who were likely to be a good fit for the organisation.

    Some of the skills we needed to hire were hard to come by but Rachel kept on proactively hunting for suitable candidates.

    Rachel is an extremely proactive, conscientious and professional, and works hard on developing a long term relationship based on results as opposed to one off placements.

    Thanks a lot, Rachel - you have certainly contributed to the success of the organisation.
