Year Joined:

I joined Potentia in January 2006 young, fresh-faced, eager to grow both NZ’s Tech sector and Potentia. Sadly, I’m neither young nor fresh-faced anymore. But, that burning desire to drive growth has not faltered. My vision to capture global recognition for our Tech community and Potentia as high-value innovators has only just begun.

Most of my curiosity and interest has been developed within the fast-growth, software and electronics product vendor arena. Here, a tremendous difference can be made to these often short-handed new businesses. Through Potentia’s key appointments and introductions; these teams can work faster, more effectively, incorporating global standards within their tools, processes and approaches to produce greater world-first products. And in turn, these guys put NZ on the map.

Prior to beginning my recruitment career, I completed a Graduate Diploma of Business specialising in IT. Fresh out of University, I took on a role as an Account Manager with an up and coming Sales and Service IT Company. After developing this business and their markets, I reformed their business processes and workflows and developed an enduring interest in this area. My career then took me further into IT and Telecommunications roles before travelling on to Japan. There, I cut my teeth recruiting in the competitive headhunting market of Tokyo before returning home to New Zealand.

Being back in New Zealand I decided to continue my recruitment career and interest in technology by working at Potentia. The satisfaction I gain from assisting technology professionals in guiding their career choices and the impact that these people make on their growing employers has kept me driven throughout my nine years at Potentia IT Recruitment.

Julian has done an excellent job

28 July 2015

I would have to say Julian has done an excellent job. We had very specific requirements, and although we didn't fill the role timely enough, it was more a reflection of our requirements and the market, more than anything else. Julian worked very hard on the role and was always forthcoming and open with his approach.

Far better service and result than expected! Managed to get an offer in just over a week from the first call with Julian, which was much sooner than I had considered.
