A bit about me
Growing up, my parents were publicans on the West Coast, so my life was constantly surrounded by people. This has left me well connected with a wide range of South Islanders and I love it! As a Consultant at Madison in Christchurch, I focus on roles in the vibrant and growing Canterbury manufacturing and production sector. Originally from the Canterbury region, I have worked in people management roles in the retail sector and recruited internally for a range of positions. I pride myself on a consultative approach, a highly organised and methodical recruitment process and a focus on genuine cultural fit for my clients and candidates.
The strength of our Christchurch team is a broad range of experience and background including recruitment, people management, HR, sales, marketing, commercial property, travel and business support. We are well connected in the Canterbury market and we have a good understanding of how the local economy is evolving.
Outside of work I am an active entertainer and socialiser with family and friends, you will find me in the kitchen as a keen cook and baker. I enjoy getting to know people from all walks of life and as an extra bonus in this role, the opportunity to put them into jobs they will love and excel in.
What people say
“We engaged Madison to save us time on a critical hire. Sam listened to our requirements and presented a good range of candidates that fitted our brief to meet our very tight time frame. The information provided about each individual was well tailored and gave us a good insight into the candidates strengths and weaknesses.
Once we identified our preferred candidate, we requested additional information to help us gauge team fit, Sam was able to approach this with tact and ultimately gave us confidence in our decision. Communication was timely and effective, with the end result being a great hire.
