One day four years ago, Gareth wandered into our offices looking for an assistant accountant role (somewhat half-heartedly, it must be said).  He had a busted-up nose from a brutal game of rugby on the weekend, but we didn’t let that put us off.  Turns out that while he was a bit of a whizz at accounting theory, in practice he was after more of a people-focused job.  Well, we know talent when we see it, so we pounced!

Gareth is now an experienced Talent Advisor on our Specialist team, where he gets to combine his love of meeting new and interesting people every day, with his business and recruitment knowledge. 

Gareth's claim to fame is he is our first male team member to take rugby leave. Twice.  

So, while Ireland and France enticed him with the rugby ball, Consult succeeded in enticing him back with our great humour, good looks, morning teas and coffee (in that order).  

Gareth recently decided he had enough busting his nose / shoulder / leg on the rugby field, so he now enjoys the boxing ring and heading out to the BOP and keeping it real.


Thanks for your phone calls to keep up with my availability, its encouraging to know that an agency would do that rather than me having to chase an agency. You are a great asset to Consult Recruitment and you can pass my comments on, I can’t speak highly enough of you. Thanks heaps, all the best wishes for your future endeavors I know you will do well.


I found Gareth & the consultants at Consult very professional and eager to keep in touch with candidates and ensure that they are keeping them updated on roles as they come available. Keep up the good work!


Consult was the most genuine recruitment consultancy I found in Auckland. Gareth understood my situation and acted upon it at the earliest. I wish to have all my future jobs via Consult.


They are friendly and understand the needs of the candidates, and try to put the salary expectation as much as possible in favor of the candidates. I have registered with almost all the recruitment agents and didn't feel this much trust with any body else.


Clear, professional, felt more like having someone on your side rather than being another random cv in a database


Friendly staff and genuinely interested in your development


One of the few consultants that follow up and show interest in applicant


Found me a great candidate, professional, great follow up, timesheet system works well.
