About us

RecruitNet is built on our in-depth knowledge of New Zealand’s manufacturing industry along with our recruitment insights and unwavering people focus. This is the RecruitNet difference, and it’s why our clients keep coming back.

"Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life." - Confucius

Your path to success starts here

RecruitNet helps awesome companies hire talented people who stick around to drive business performance.

We want to know what gets each candidate out of bed in the morning. What drives them to succeed? What environment will they thrive in? Most importantly, does this all match with who the employer is and what they offer their people?

Anybody can pick up a resume and tick off experience for a role. But for RecruitNet, the process is much deeper. It’s about asking the right questions and listening to uncover the pot of gold.

We’re a small but dedicated team with extensive networks and a passion for making people’s lives better.

Meet The Team

Brigitta Warren, Founder and Consulting Director

Brigitta Warren Founded RecruitNet With A Simple Vision – To Connect Talented People With Great Kiwi Companies.

Brigitta stumbled into recruitment as a 20-something after a stint as a Scientist. She quickly realised she’d found her groove.

Fuelled by her love of people and her unwavering ability to get stuff done, she permanently packed away her lab coat as her reputation as a first-class Recruiter flourished.

Hard-working, well-connected, tenacious, and energetic; when it comes to executive and leadership appointments Brigitta is now the right-hand woman for many leading companies across New Zealand.

As a qualified career coach, Brigitta offers career transition and outplacement services to clients, as well as transformational coaching for job seekers.

Outside of work, Brigitta keeps fit by walking the streets of Hamilton with her faithful dog Lucy and running around after her daughter.

A lover of the great kiwi outdoors and forever drawn to the salty coast, she loves to push her own limits by competing in half-ironman events and trail runs.
