Auckland and Hawke's Bay based teams with national reach

Red Consulting Group is a full service recruitment company with nationwide clients and service capacity.  Privately owned by two entrepreneurial recruitment specialists, red has an absolute determination to deliver first class recruitment solutions. We have an extensive range of clients all of which have grown by way of referral. Businesses that red recruits for range from large to small, corporate to boutique, spanning across all sectors and industries.

We have an educated, professional, energetic and commercially astute team who can attract and source the right people for the companies who engage us, no matter what level they will be required to operate at.  Since 2003, we have developed extensive business networks and candidate relationships - our talent source capacity is very well recognised.  We are particularly strong in the Executive Search space, but are committed to delivering excellent results irrespective of the level we recruit at.

We work closely with our clients to develop a thorough understanding of their business and operating parameters, so we are able to deliver ongoing recruitment strategies that work.

Finders Keepers

Identifying people with the credentials to do the job you need doing is just the beginning. Determining which one gets you, your company, and your culture calls on experience, an understanding of your business, and more than a little intuition. Our reward comes well after the placement is made. It’s when you tell us we’ve helped you find exactly what you were looking for and that person has had an enduring effect on your business.

We’re about the future. How about you?


We are committed to getting to know you and to understanding you.  We'll identify the essential ingredients required to facilitate the perfect recruitment outcome.  Our processes are rigorous, and we work hard to deliver great results.


Our level of service sets us apart from many of our competitors in the recruitment industry.  We care, we act responsibly and we embrace the trust placed in us.  We’re proud of the way we work, and are accountable to clients and candidates alike.

Personal Touch

We strive to remove the stress associated with the recruitment process for our clients.  We keep everyone informed at all stages of the process.  We work with a sense of humour, we tell it how it is.  Our personal touch is very much anchored to getting it right for the people.

Results Focused Attitude

Clare and her team at Red Consulting Group provide us with a complete professional recruitment service from beginning to end. They invest time to fully understand our business and business requirements, including culture, skill set and "fit". Their in-depth knowledge is then used to fill many positions within our Group as well as provide on going planning and advice. This, combined with Red Consulting Group’s commercial focus, results in a tailored short list of well screened candidates who would ably suit the role.

We are not provided with candidates just to fill a short list and if no suitable candidate is found, we are told up front and Red Consulting Group then puts in place a plan to work with us to find the right person. This results focused attitude and attentive service comes with passion, energy and a smile. It has always been a pleasure dealing with Clare and her team.

Burn the Midnight Oil to Deliver

I have found Red Consulting to be the most commercially focused and business savvy recruitment team I have dealt with throughout my experience in both New Zealand and Europe. They are extremely focused on genuinely understanding our business, the context of the role, then finding the person with the right skill set, experience and personality to ensure a long term fit. They bring a high level of passion, energy and professionalism to the process, which results in high calibre candidates naturally gravitating towards them and most importantly into our business. They have also surprised me with the level of creativity they have brought to our advertising, which they have always linked to the strategic and innovative direction of our brands.

Most importantly to me, they really take it personally and have never taken short cuts or run on 'gut feel' regardless of how tight the timeframe has been. When the timeframe is tight, they employ the same structured methodology, but burn the midnight oil to deliver on our deadline and their commitment. That is the true gauge of a business partner.
