A bit about me

During my seventeen year career in the Christchurch hospitality scene, I took care of the recruitment for many businesses and enjoyed finding the right match for each venue.

With a move to Australia and the decision for a career change in 2016 – recruitment was an obvious choice and an exciting new challenge. With recruitment experience across Melbourne and Christchurch, I now recruit for temporary, contract and permanent staffing solutions. As the Manager in the Christchurch branch, I seek out talent across sales, marketing, communications, hard-to-fill and specialist positions.

My passion is searching for candidates that seem unreachable through specialist recruitment marketing and in partnership with our internal Madison marketing team both locally and nationally. Shoulder tapping and utilising my networks to source the best talent is what I do best. Currently Christchurch-based, I manage recruits across the South Island and have successfully placed fantastic people from Invercargill through to Nelson.

When I’m not at work you’ll find me involved in team sports, socialising with friends and family or checking out the latest or old favourite culinary spots around town.

What people say

“Sarah was very professional, and what I found really supportive were the emails leading up to the interview with the business to see how I was feeling. Sarah has also let me know of another position which she has put me forward for which I really appreciate. This was my first interaction with Madison and I only have positive comments to make. Thank you for making me feel so comfortable.”

“Sarah was excellent to deal with. She listened to what I was looking for in a candidate and kept in regular contact as she sourced candidates. She produced a variety of high calibre candidates for us to consider ultimately resulting in finding the right fit for our organisation.”
