Welcome to Yvette Harrison Recruitment

During more than two decades as a recruitment consultant I have worked with thousands of companies and candidates throughout NZ. Individual scenarios differ but they all have a common need that informs every aspect of my service – and that is to receive professional, personalised service that makes them feel valued.

I will deliver this – and more – when working with you. As one of New Zealand’s leading technical recruitment specialists, I work on a low-volume high value model. This means you will only be dealing with me at every stage of the process, gaining the maximum benefit from my years of experience and extensive industry networks.

What is everyone else saying?

Here are some comments from happy customers and candidates.

Yvette has been very helpful in every step of the way - from preliminary screening to offering the job. She provides insight as to the nature of the job and working environment, interviewers' background, tips for interview, and more. Friendly yet professional. I can't recommend her highly enough.


[Candidate] is doing really well and making a
difference.  I’m glad you kept at me about him, he’s a great addition to
the team.


"I have dealt with many recruiters in my time - Yvette is by far the most communicative, understanding of my needs / requirements and technically sound. Excellent experience"


Thank you very much for your help in recruiting for the Food Technologist role. From my end you have made the process smooth, uncomplicated and found us good candidates. We look forward to [candidate] starting with us in a couple of weeks.


Yvette was fantastic at providing a thorough and accurate assessment of potential candidates.


It was a pleasure to have Yvette as my recruiter in securing my first role after finishing my studies. She was always a delight to speak to, and she regularly contacted me to discuss how I was finding my role.


"Yvette is a true professional. She took what was a stressful process and managed to run it seamlessly.

I'm truly thankful and grateful."


Yvette has quite literally gone the extra mile for me. She has applied her vast experience in recruiting to sift out the very essence of who I am and what qualities would best suit both her clients' needs and my aspirations. Not one to stand on ceremony, she is efficient and honest in her appraisal of my capabilities. This has given me great confidence that she can place me in a role that I will thrive in.


This is overwhelming!!!!!! I don't have any words to explain the joy. Thank you Yvette and everyone involved in this. May God continue to bless you abundantly.


Yvette's ability to source offshore Engineering/Technical candidates outperforms most of the recruiters we work with in that space.
