Kym has a great background for recruitment - textbook almost! She completed her degree in psychology before joining one of South Africa's most reputable agencies, recruiting at all levels across various industries. It was there that she realised helping people and companies through recruitment was the thing that she was most passionate about.
She was headhunted by a large retailer to join their in-house talent acquisition team and 18 months later, was given the opportunity to join their largest division as an HR Business Partner, where she was able to extend her skills but still stay true to her passion - recruitment in the HR space.
With over six years’ experience recruiting across various roles and industries, we are so excited to have Kym join Consult to specialise in HR recruitment!
Born and bred in the rainbow nation of South Africa, braais (BBQs) and boerewors (it’s like a sausage, with a million different amazing flavours) and a good glass of red wine are the staple weekend thing, as well as spending time with her family (her hubby is quite the stud apparently... not that she's being biased at all) and friends.
Being South African and now living in New Zealand, you would assume that she would be a rugby enthusiast and she hates to disappoint - but after being a rugby WAG for a good nine years, she now prefers to focus her attention on another sport that she believes she's really good at - SHOPPING!
