While we are not particularly good at (or comfortable with) spouting off what an awesome job we do, we are always super proud of the achievements of our people. Last night, our CEO, Angela Cameron was named Recruitment Leader of the Year at the RCSA New Zealand Awards in Auckland, which was hugely exciting for us and great recognition for Angela.
The RCSA (Recruitment, Consulting and Staffing Association Australia & New Zealand) is the industry body for the recruitment and staffing industry in Australia and New Zealand - so acknowledgement from them for a job well done means a huge amount to us.
This award is a fantastic achievement for Angela who is a huge advocate for the difference the industry can make and the value it adds, not only to people’s careers but to businesses’ bottom line.
Making this her mission, she started Consult Recruitment during the recession in 2008, focusing on people and relationships, rather than on making a placement at all costs. She has since gone on to not only create a successful business with talented, ambitious, friendly and professional people who share her values, but to place thousands of people as contractors, temporary workers or permanent employees that have helped their employers succeed.
On winning the award, Angela commented, “This award is not only great recognition for myself but also for the whole Consult team. Against the odds, we have built a wonderful team of talented people who frankly make me look good as a leader. I’ve learnt so much through the process and am ambitious for our future as we make Consult the best place to work in New Zealand.
“Our continued vision for Consult mirrors my ambition for the recruitment industry as a whole. We change people’s lives through their careers and we help businesses to succeed through people. Therefore, Consult must continue to lead by example, in everything we do, say and learn.”
So today, we say hooray for us and Angela - we are very grateful to the RCSA and the panel of judges for the award.
