Job Search

Introduction to our Search Services
Within Genuine People we have a thriving search service dedicated to our clients across the Asia Pacific region. We have strong networks with many multinationals, local government and private organisations with their headquarters based in NZ, Australia and Asia, and strong links to CEOs and Business leaders working in New Zealand. We partner directly with Business Leaders and HR leaders – depending on the assignment, helping them quickly find quality senior professionals to take their businesses forward. We cover all industry sectors, with expertise in Agri-businesses, FMCG, Banking, Manufacturing, Local Government, Airlines, Professional services, Technology and most specialist senior functional roles.

Why Genuine People?
Business leaders increasingly recognise that a company’s success is closely linked with its people management strategies and the leadership team’s ability to change, adapt and grow their organisations. Putting together a world class team is critical to achieving this success, and with change cycles getting increasingly shorter and more complex, having the right senior professionals has never been more important. However, building a world-class team remains highly problematic, requiring a matching of factors including talent, experience and personal chemistry between a complicated cross-section of functional and business stakeholders. With over 30 years experience shared between its senior partners, having operated personally in many senior roles successfully, in many industry sectors, with international experience in US, Europe, Asia, and ANZ – Genuine People know the profession, the people, and what is required. And with experience comes the wisdom to help you select the right talent to join your senior team.

How we work as your partner
We do believe we are uniquely placed to help strengthen your senior team as we have significant search and commercial experience, and with many of you we know you personally and often your organisations – so we have a very good idea of the right fit of candidates for your roles. Our clients have been very pleased with our knowledge, experience, networks and ability to market their roles and match to the most appropriate candidates. Here are some of their recommendations on our Search services:
