#AucklandRec Meetup #12
Hi Talent Finders, We are excited to announce #AucklandRec Meetup number twelve! Over Winter the #Aucklandrec meetup network has seen new campaigns, new tech and a whole heap of movement in the talent market. To kick off Spring, we've got another impressive line-up of speakers, so you won't want to miss out on this one! Our speakers for this event are: Matt Pontin - Recruitment and Allocations Manager Auckland Doctors & The Northern Regional Alliance Matt has been working in recruitment and strategic HR for over 20 years. He has previously managed nationwide internal talent acquisition and development functions at ASB, Fulton Hogan and Counties Manukau DHB. Matt has also extensive agency experience having started out in IT recruitment and also he was General Manager for Drake New Zealand. Following a brief stint in consulting Matt has now returned to Internal Recruitment and manages a team of 18 staff who look after Nationwide Graduate Nursing and Doctor recruitment and who manage the recruitment and training for Resident Medical Officers across the Auckland region. Diana Sharma - Co-Founder and Mission Director Mission Ready HQ Diana is a wanna be geek, loves how tech is evolving to make our lives better and is passionate about the future of work, education and the intersection of tech. Which is why she co-founded Mission Ready HQ, a tech skills accelerator with heart! While this is designed to prepare future tech talent in 14 weeks, challenging the traditional norm of 3-4 years in education, it is also on a mission to enable people from disadvantaged communities to get back on their feet through their unique ‘Pay it forward’ model…. Because the next workforce deserves better! Better access to mentors, better access to skills and ultimately better access to opportunities. Natasha Foster - Recruitment Consultant Rice Consulting NZ Specialist HR Recruiter with Rice Consulting who swore she’d never go back to agency, but here we are. Photographer on the side, Te Reo student, rock climber, learner surfer; eternally curious. Happiest off the grid. Check out the photo below for the topic's our speakers are covering.

    What we're about

    We're Auckland Talent Sourcing professionals from both internal recruitment teams and agencies. Let's face it; recruiters love to talk, network and of course, have a few drinks so this is an opportunity to catch-up with those in your industry, hear from recruitment leaders and influencer's on the latest trends and tools and share knowledge in hope we'll keep getting better at what we do. We're talented people and can learn a lot from each other, so come along and let's discuss all things recruitment!
