Hamish McDonald

Working in the recruitment industry for 20 years I’ve learnt a huge amount. I’ve been fortunate to gain knowledge from multiple markets having recruited across the NZ, London and Australian markets, and am fortunate to have worked with and started businesses that are at the forefront of the evolution of this industry.

My career began working with large global recruiters offshore, then multi-national firms in NZ – from consulting roles, management / leadership and more. I’ve been fortunate to start up and grow businesses from proposition to reality, and have worked through the crazy highs and incredible lows of the employment market. The key aspect that underpins this is the interaction with people and the positive influence on careers.

The decision to join Bureau was an easy one….two attributes that matter to me are Trust and Authenticity. Being a company that is in the business of people – people engagement, knowledge, influence – this is something Bureau has in spades. Your people are always the best asset, and this is something Bureau lives through its team.

I recruit across Financial Services – all technical disciplines across Insurance, Banking and Lending. The art of sales  & distribution is of particular interest (given this is what I’ve been doing my entire career!) and I also recruit across multiple industries here.

When not working I’ll be undertaking a DIY task around the house or out riding my mountain bike….that is if I’m not taxiing my kids around town!
