Tell us a little about yourself 

Originally from the great India, I grew up in England and now call New Zealand home.  

I hold a master’s degree in human resources and finance, wanted to become a lawyer. However, that did not happen so, I married one. 

In my spare time, lucky if I get some – I like to watch some good dramatic movies. 

Tell us about your career to date 

After graduating from university, I started working for a large global immigration firm as a HR generalist. 

I commenced my career in NZ with Kiwibank as a Banker and enjoyed every aspect of role.  

What drew you to recruitment? 

Being a natural persuader and someone who enjoys engaging with people I chose recruitment.  

Moreover, recruitment is a blooming industry in NZ and develops you professionally and personally. 

I have always been lucky to work with astute and innovative managers who always guide and upskill me.   

Why is recruitment important to you? 

Recruitment is all about connections, networking. A bad chapter or a bad day in recruitment does not mean end of the story.  

Personally, helping people meet their materialistic needs in a legalised manner is satisfaction to me.
