About Us

Psych-Recruitment is a New Zealand company with global outreach.  It was established in 2002 to address skill shortages for fully qualified clinical, forensic, and educational psychologists.  The company is a specialised talent acquisition consultancy offering a wealth of experience.

Psychologist staffing shortages have developed due to ongoing expansion of psychological services in both public and private sectors.  While this provides excellent career development choices for psychologists, it equally creates challenging staffing situations for many employers. Psych-Recruitment addresses these challenges by locating and matching the right psychologists to the right jobs.

A distinctive feature of the company is a focus on a narrow range of applied psychology jobs. This affords the benefits of a consultancy that is a true expert in the field. Considerable attention is placed on matching psychologists, and employers, and locations.

Psychologists interested in jobs abroad find that certain specialities, locations, or employers offer exciting immigration opportunities. This makes Psych-Recruitment more than a traditional staffing agency as international search and selection, as well as relocation and settlement support are additional services that are offered to both jobseekers and employers.

Although New Zealand is the main focus employers from Australia, Singapore, and the Middle East have utilised Psych-Recruitment's expertise and talent pool to assist with service development projects and ongoing staffing solutions.   All types of psychologist job order assignments are considered.    

Psych-Recruitment has been an early innovator in niche talent acquisition, and has developed an extensive pool of appropriately qualified candidates in anticipation of future hiring needs.  Psychologists are recruited both locally and internationally. However, search and selection is from a limited range of countries that have been evaluated as having comparable models of service delivery to our clients' needs, and where experience has been developed in understanding local training and qualifications.  

Psych-Recruitment has a reputation for supplying highly talented psychologists and has become the agency of first choice for many employers. The company holds preferred supplier status with a number of employers.


Introductions

Hallo, I am a New Zealander and trained as a clinical psychologist at Waikato University in Hamilton, graduating in 1995. This was followed by a decade’s clinical experience working in child protection, offender risk assessment and rehabilitation, service development and staff management. I have practised psychology in locations of Rotorua/Taupo, Hamilton and Auckland. Before establishing Psych-Recruitment I was employed as a Principal Psychologist, managing a team of psychologists for the New Zealand Department of Corrections. 

I am passionate about the field of psychology and the development of psychological services. I particularly enjoy helping employers develop their services through employing talented professionals. Equally, I enjoy assisting psychologists to develop their careers.

Over a decade ago family circumstances delivered me to Europe and into the field of recruitment and staffing consultancy relative to psychology.  I am mostly located in Europe which allows convenient availability to those located in time zones of Europe, Africa and the Middle East. At the same time I am in daily contact with clients and colleagues in New Zealand and other Asia Pacific countries in order to update on service development and staffing needs. 

You are welcome to learn more about me by reviewing my Curriculum Vitae (CV), along with comments and recommendations on my LinkedIn profile

I would welcome the opportunity to assist you.

Psychologist Staffing

Kia ora, I am an Italian who has spent periods living in New Zealand and experiencing the ‘Kiwi’ culture.

I have been involved with Psych-Recruitment since 2002, assisting with the initial start up. I have also enjoyed meeting some of you at the exhibitions and conferences we attend.

I manage the Psych-Recruitment website and various company social media pages. However, my main responsibility is drafting up your curriculum vitae and job applications paying particular attention to content and presentation.

Short-listing is an important component of the recruitment process so my goal is to ensure that your skills and experiences are well presented. I look forward to working with you on your job applications.
