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 was very knowledgeable and responded to my enquires with professionalism and without delay.


It is indeed my pleasure to thank Yvette Harrison for her contribution. Thanks to Yvette, my Job hunt hasn’t gone through much hassle. Yvette is adept in this technical recruitment arena, exhibiting professionalism, reliable communication and charisma.

I recall my experience with her when she identified my expectations and skill sets to match the right employer. Beyond the recruitment process, she even took personal care in my career path and gave consultation on what would suit me the best, especially as an immigrant in this soil.

Thanking once again for her contribution, I would highly recommend Yvette for candidates seeking opportunities in the operations and continuous improvement field.


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."


I have met and known Yvette. H for quite some time, and I have seen and experienced quite a few recruitment agencies/agents over my 15 years of career in the NZ Food industry --- I am happy and confident to say that Yvette Harrison is certainly one of the best in this area, and have no hesitation to recommend to my friends or anyone who are looking for their next move.


[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.


Always a pleasure to work with.


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

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.


It is an absolute pleasure to talk about Yvette H. and her recruitment services. I have the opportunity to meet Yvette approximately two years ago in a recruitment process. It was a remarkable moment in my personal life and career when I was looking for a change. She gave me such good advice and recommendations to be more assertive in my search and helped me to find the ideal job. She`s highly dedicated, insightful, analytical, technical, and empathetic. She goes beyond the classical `Recruiter` role, being completely honest and transparent through the process. I highly recommend Yvette to my friends looking for a better opportunity in their careers.
