Here is what a few people have said about us recently:
I found Susie to be a very experienced and motivated recruitment agent. She is positive, friendly and very proactive. I really felt like Susie always had my best interests at heart and that very much sets her apart from other recruitment agents I have worked with in the past. I would recommend Susie to anyone returning from overseas to find work in New Zealand.
Naomi has been amazing to work with while helping me search for a Marketing role. She's very proactive, a great communicator and always strives to put you first to get the best result. Would absolutely recommend Naomi if you're looking for assistance in finding a new role.
Susie is just amazing! After nearly three years out of the workforce and an international move- Susie gave me some great advice on how to best present my CV, got me interviewing for the role I wanted in the firm I wanted. Susie gave useful advice to prepare me for the interview process. I have found Susie to be very professional, encouraging and caring in her approach. Highly recommended.
Right from the moment I knew I needed to start looking for work across the other side of the world Jenny was there to help me. I was introduced to Jenny as my UK visa was coming to an end and she was everything I wished a recruiter to be: friendly, proactive, and most importantly, honest and helpful. In less than a month of being back on New Zealand soil, Jenny had me attending some great interviews, and within four weeks, into a fabulous company with no trouble at all. To anyone returning to New Zealand, or just looking for work, I would definitely recommend getting in touch with Jenny and her team - they make life easy for you!
All foreigners, especially South Africans, know what an emotional and stressful decision immigration can be – most stressful being the search for employment. With her very enthusiastic and optimistic approach and attitude, Susie relieves most of that stress. And all her efforts are rewarded with an excellent success rate! There’s no sitting still with Susie – every day is a great day to find a job! I can never thank you enough Susie – keep up the excellent work that you do 🙂
Susie was very helpful with my transition back to NZ. Very supportive and provided a lot of advice, given her many years’ experience. Would definitely recommend her to anyone moving to NZ from overseas.
Founder and Managing Partner
Speak to Susie to get an overview of what sva can do for you. Susie has over 28 years in international recruitment and is widely regarded as one of the top consultants in NZ. Her background includes being one of the most successful consultants for Michael Page in London and setting up Global Career Link & Robert Walters in NZ. When we manage to get Susie to leave the office she likes to spend her time with her 18-year-old twins, taking her dog Dug for a walk or enjoying a glass of wine with her husband or friends.
Jenny is the person to talk to if you are looking for Marketing, Legal, and HR roles. Having worked in HR and recruitment across Europe, Asia, and Australasia for nearly 15 years, Jenny brings with her a wealth of global knowledge and experience. Jenny is an outgoing and bubbly member of the team and says the best part of her job is building relationships with candidates and clients. Jenny moved to NZ in 2014, with her Kiwi husband and two sons. Weekends are spent on the rugby sidelines, cheering on her sons and trying to understand the rules.
Naomi is the person to talk to if you have an accounting, finance, or digital marketing background. Naomi has a firm understanding of the global job market and loves matching candidates with their ideal jobs. Naomi moved to NZ from the UK in 2014, with an international background in fundraising and career advisory. A vibrant and cheery addition to our team, Naomi loves hiking, swimming, and playing in competitive pool billiards tournaments.
Cindy is the "go to" person for revamping your CV for the relevant international market. She also assists the team with recommending candidates to clients. Cindy has recently returned home to Golden Bay to raise her young son and be closer to her family after being away in Australia & the UK for 10+ years. She loves participating in competitive sports (mainly when her team is winning!) and any outdoor activities that will get her family outside.
