Meet Tash Silva – Auckland

Most people throughout their careers will deal with a recruiter to find a job at some point. Finding a new role can be a stressful process for anybody regardless of how many interviews they’ve previously had. Our recruiters work to get to know their candidates and place them in the best role.  In this role reversal we get to know our Recruiters in Auckland both at work, and in their personal lives.
