CARMEL STRANGE

Temporary & Contract Recruitment

E: carmel@assetrec.co.nz M: 021 991 810 LinkedIn I accidentally fell into the recruitment industry and have never looked back! I run our busy temporary/contract placement division and have been manager of Asset.

I accidentally fell into the recruitment industry and have never looked back! I run our busy temporary/contract placement division and have been manager of Asset Recruitment since 1998. As an accredited recruitment consultant I am an expert at identifying top candidates with marketable skills. I love nothing better than matching candidates and clients. After 28 years with Asset I have extensive knowledge of the market. The greatest measure of my success is the high number of temporary candidates who gain permanent employment through their temping assignments. I enjoy the challenges of the recruitment industry and thrive on keeping Asset ahead of its competitors. While the competition in the recruitment market has grown over recent years I take pride in the continued reputation of the company. I firmly believe the success of Asset is the result of a team effort. No one person can take the credit.

Executive & Permanent Recruitment

I have enjoyed a career at Asset Recruitment spanning more than 20 years. During this time I’ve experienced many changes including market demands, candidate expectations, recruitment trends and sourcing techniques. While I can work across all facets of our business, nowadays I recruit mostly at a senior level. Whether it’s a Chief Executive or Chief Financial Officer position, or maybe a senior technical role, I provide a seamless, professional service to our clients. Building long-term relationships with many of Hamilton’s leading organisations has been a career highlight for me, and with many of those clients I feel like part of their team! Over the years, I’ve built up a real understanding of the recruitment market, particularly here in the Waikato. I’m always happy to use this knowledge to provide support to our clients needing a sounding board or a little guidance on a recruitment issue. Whether you are contemplating a career change or looking to employ staff at any level and in any industry, I’d like to meet with you to discuss how I can assist.
