Rachel is an experienced agency and internal recruiter, having worked in recruitment leadership roles across New Zealand and Australia.  A career highlight was building the internal recruitment function for a fast growing business in NZ and scaling them from 57 employees to 440 in 18 months!

Prior to “falling into” recruitment, Rachel’s background is in sales and marketing.  A lover of challenging the “usual” or “the way it’s always been done” when it comes to recruitment, Rachel enjoys creative sourcing and employer branding.  A fierce advocate of candidate experience, Rachel is passionate about helping businesses (and the wider recruitment industry) improve in this area.  Rachel is a  regular blogger on general recruitment issues, observations and trends (https://recruitinginnz.wordpress.com).

Rachel has a natural aptitude for building great relationships and networking which has driven a real love for social media and social sourcing – find her on Twitter at @rachiemouse.
