Shelley Gilchrist

Prior to recruitment I spent 15 years in the FMCG sector with Coca-Cola in various sales and management roles until deciding on a career change. This was the start of my recruitment journey. I have spent the last 15+ years in recruitment in both agency and client side (including 5 years at Vodafone NZ).

So, with some 30 years experience in sales and recruitment combined, I’ve built a strong reputation for delivery and have extensive networks across many levels and industry sectors. I’m often called upon to search for hard to find talent. I take candidate care very seriously and focus my efforts on ensuring the best outcome for both clients and candidates. My core focus at Bureau is to help senior sales, marketing, general management and senior operations professionals with their careers and working with companies across New Zealand, helping them secure the best talent.

Outside of work, let’s just say, life is never dull – we have a busy household (couple of teenager girls and twin 8 year old boys). I actually come to work for a rest!
