Darryl is an experienced business owner and project manager with a background in building and construction, and more recently with a career shift into recruitment and immigration services. He enjoys the challenge of putting a business together, getting it to run well and making sure that it delivers not just for the stakeholders, but also for the people that work within it. Darryl knows how to navigate the immigration system and draws on his unique skill set to help businesses find the skilled workers they need to enable growth.
"Starting NZ Jobs Search came from a desire to leverage the huge amount of experience Debbie and I have with employers, corporates, recruitment advertising, recruitment knowledge and immigration law. I thrive on building great relationships with clients and helping them find the right staff to grow their businesses. I was in building and construction for 20 years and a big key to my success was building a great team around me. I understand the challenges behind sourcing the right talent, and how daunting that can be when looking offshore. My experience navigating the complexities of the immigration system makes me the perfect partner for any business wanting to hire skilled workers from overseas.

"My favourite part of the job is connecting people together, I love meeting people from other countries, learning about their culture and why they want to work in New Zealand. Many people come here wanting a better life for themselves and their families, and being able to help them achieve their dream is very rewarding.
On the local side, every day I am meeting New Zealand business owners who are desperate to grow and expand their business, but cannot find enough skilled workers. Connecting these people together to solve a common problem is very satisfying and I feel like I'm making a real difference in peoples lives."
