Recruitment Consultant

Having come from a direct sales background I decided to make the move into recruitment at the beginning of 2016 and am now committed to making this a long term career move. My friends would describe me as an open book and when combining someone as fun, passionate and caring as me with recruitment, you get a consultant who is dedicated on bringing out the best in people. The businesses I work with chose to work with me because I provide a professional, real approach and thrive on seeing success and guarantee the best outcome for people involved. I love working in an industry where I can make connections, build relationships and better the lives of every person I meet. The values Focus Recruitment chose to live and work by are all values I endeavour to possess, and working for an awesome company definitely brings out the best in me

Tamara Bareither

Tamara Bareither

Reception & Sales Support

I’ve always been eager to learn, expand my knowledge and be challenged. So I’ve decided to go down a different path and join the world of recruitment – and with that the Focus World. I have over ten years’ experience working within administration and customer service in a variety of different businesses. Having worked in the Textile/Design & Fashion Industry I have supported many Sales Representatives and was exposed to a fast paced working environment. My strength is my natural ability to organise, prioritise with persistence and enthusiasm to get things done. Originally from Germany, I fell in love with the beauty of this country and the friendliness of the people while being on a work and travel holiday in 2014. I’m a massive animal lover and in my spare time I enjoy cooking, reading, fashion and travelling.

With 8 years of Direct Sales Experience I have always had one eye on recruitment. When the opportunity to work at Focus presented itself I jumped at the chance. I am looking forward to building relationships across the Technical and Industrial Sector whilst delivering great client and Customer service. Originally from Scotland my passion for travel brought me to New Zealand 5 years ago. The beauty of the country and warmth of the people convinced me to stay and I now consider it my permanent home. When I’m not working, you can find me sampling craft beers, playing football or planning my next trip overseas.

Jess The Dog

Jess The Dog

Occupational Health & Wellbeing Consultant

I am happy, go lucky, dedicated and loyal to my colleagues. I ensure that each day my team members are at their optimum mental health by checking in on them on a regular basis. Greeting candidates when they walk in the door with a wagging tail makes them feel welcomed and at ease during their time here. I love having a sniff around the kitchen table when no one is looking. Being a valued member of the admin team I am proactive and collaborate in all meetings in the boardroom with the sales team. Otherwise you will find me at my desk generally snoozing in my downtime, feel free to visit me anytime I am always up for a pat or a scratch.
