Hudson Auckland stories
Hear from some of our consultants about why they chose Hudson and what they love about working here.
Alice, Consultant - Project Services
My most recent role before Hudson was as an Account Manager for a tech company in London, previous to that I had worked in a number of different sales roles across Europe.
I’d always wanted to visit New Zealand as I’d seen pictures of the beautiful landscapes. Auckland is great as I can further my career whilst being close to the beach. I’m always keen to make the most of what New Zealand has to offer, so you’ll find me hiking, camping or skiing on the weekends.
I chose to move into recruitment because I really enjoy working with people and it’s always interesting meeting so many different people and hearing their stories.
I’d met with one of Hudson’s Managing Consultants, who spoke highly of the culture and way of working here. I was intrigued to know more. Everything she spoke of has lived up to my expectations, it’s a fantastic culture at Hudson where everyone’s encouraged to achieve and success is accomplished as a team.
For me, to be a specialist is to be a known and trusted expert in your field. To know your market inside and out and to have understanding of current trends and skills in demand.
So far I’m most proud of being nominated for the Individual Contributor award in my first year as a consultant. Another big achievement was completing Tough Mudder with a few of my Auckland team members in December – hard work but very good fun!
Ryan, Consultant - Development
Before Hudson I was studying at university whilst working full time as a major event Security Supervisor – strange transition into recruitment I know, but it meant I developed some really vital people skills!
When I first joined I was taught which sort of roles we specialise in and what a good or not so good candidate looks like, and I learned from there. I’ve always had a passion for anything that’s cutting-edge or innovative, so the exciting part about working in the Tech & Dig space is that it’s always changing, and you’re constantly learning. I absolutely love this part about the job.
We're very team oriented, and everyone would drop what they are doing to help answer a question, or to find a workaround for a particular issue you may be having. This could be your direct manager, a consultant in a different team, or even the General Manager or Regional Director!
The sense of collaboration is synonymous from the CEO through to the newest consultant.
I personally couldn’t have picked a better job straight out of university. It throws you in at the deep end, but you’re taught how to swim and become a successful specialist consultant.
Quite simply put, I couldn’t ask for a better environment to work in, or people to work with.
Sita, Talent Sourcing Consultant - Business Support
I decided to pursue a career in recruitment because I really liked the idea of helping others find employment – it’s a great feeling knowing you’ve helped someone on their career journey.
I chose to move on from my previous recruitment role and join Hudson for a number of reasons. The united culture, good pay, the opportunity to grow that I didn’t previously have. Hudson truly stood out for the passion everyone brings not only to the day-to-day but for what the company stands for.
Hudson is also the first company that made me think of recruitment as a career. I’ve never met as many recruiters that have stayed with one company for such a lengthy duration.
And I really didn’t understand before actually working here, but the managers really care about their teams and your success – you’re never forgotten.
I’m really looking forward to progressing to senior. My managers ask for my input in terms of what that growth looks like for me beyond that. And I’m attending the Annual Star Awards in Australia this May! It’s a huge achievement and a personal goal I had been working towards since starting at Hudson.
