Recruiting Professionals in Many Disciplines
We've been asked more then once what we specialise in NZ jobs, and the answer is that Alpha is a generalist recruiter with specialist consultants. We cover a large variety of roles, including temporary, contract and permanent placements. We are committed to professional roles across a broad spectrum of industries and within deep functional areas. Our specialist consultants continue to recruit staff in the following job areas:
Sales & Marketing
As an agency with offices in Auckland and Wellington we are able to service clients in all major New Zealand centres. The job market in Auckland is serviced from our offices in Newmarket. We have recently added staff to our Wellington recruitment team and this means Alpha can provide assurance to clients in both markets of jobs in Auckland and jobs in Wellington that we can take care of most of their recruitment needs.
The recent relocation of two of our staff to Tauranga has given Alpha an on the ground presence in this market for the first time and they have been instrumental in providing professional recruitment services to clients who have national needs, including those in the Bay of Plenty
Alpha Job Interview Tips
Our popular series of job interview tips is being extended. In recent times we have been working with Di Stewart, formerly the owner and manager of Mid City Personnel, to create a series of radio advertisements. These have been very well recieved. More recently the video series has been available covering some of the common questions that candidates want answered before going to an interview.
The latest in this series is now on our website, and three more are coming. These are worth a look if you are ever going to a job interview and want to give yourself that edge.
We pride ourselves on being an entirely New Zealand owned recruitment agency, employing many temporary and contract staff and servicing New Zealand companies wherever they operate. While we have offices in Auckland and Wellington we also provide recruitment services to clients in Hamilton, Tauranga, Palmerston North, Christchurch and Wellington. If you have a job you need filled in any of these centres, do not hesitate to call us.
This year has been a very busy year for Alpha and you have more choices than ever! If you are in the market for health support staff our healthcare division, Healthwise Personnel available to meet your requirements. There are staff available for homecare, nursing, management, allied health, cleaning, orderlies, healthcare assistants. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for any of these roles. Otherwise we are still providing staff for either perm, contract or temporary roles across a range of sectors and levels.
The job market in New Zealand is changing constantly as new opportunities come up. We are always on the look out for highly motivated candidates with a good mix of marketable skills and the attitudes that will lead them to be successful in our clients.
Alpha is well known for working with both local and international candidates, however we do need to make it clear that the chances of gaining employment in New Zealand are very dependent on you having the right to work here. The specific roles that are in demand can be found on the New Zealand Immigration Long and Short Term shortages lists. It is also very important that prospective employees have a high level of spoken English.
Alpha is increasingly working with international clients who are looking for talented professionals to work offshore, for either long term contracts or in permanent roles. If this is of interest to you and you have professional qualifications in IT, Change management or Engineering, please talk to one of our recruitment consultants in either our Auckland or Wellington offices.
Alpha is now a partner with some of the best owner managed recruitment companies in the world through our relationship with NPA, one of the most successful partnerships ever in recruitment. Learn more about NPA here
