The Role & Team
We have a unique opportunity for a NZ based, Senior Recruitment Consultant to join our Specsavers Support Office team! You will be joining a wider team of 30 all based in our Support Office in Port Melbourne and reporting directly into our Australia based SRS Manager.

As our new Specsavers Recruitment Support (SRS) Senior Consultant, you will be in charge of our optometry recruitment and candidate management/development across New Zealand. This role will truly have no two-days the same, as it has a large scope of responsibilities that will see you work across recruitment, build strong partner & candidate pipelines, and create strong connections across ANZ. 

Due to reporting into an Australian based Manager, this position is largely independent and autonomous, however you will have touch points with our state-based regional teams and other NZ based partners. This is a role where we welcome outside of the box thinking and invite solutions to create positive change. So, if you like the sound of a role that you can make your own and have the freedom to work quite autonomously, then apply now. 

At Specsavers, we believe in adopting a hybrid approach to support our people and the future of work. When not working from an alternative location, you will be based at our support office in Mairangi Bay, Auckland. 

What we are looking for

  • 2 – 3 years’ experience on a high-volume candidate management or recruitment desk either within an agency or internal recruitment environment and demonstrate use of best-practice recruitment tools and techniques to deliver exceptional results.
  • A self-starter, comfortable working independently. 
  • Can demonstrate previous experience of managing and influencing senior stakeholders in a recruitment environment, as well as the demonstrated ability to build strong professional relationships. 
  • Demonstrated capacity to determine priorities, meet strict deadlines and effectively balance competing demands and the ability to work under pressure both independently and as a member of a team.
  • Excellent written, verbal and interpersonal communication skills with the ability to prepare and present reports and documentation of high quality and integrity and the capacity to deal with a wide range of clients and staff.
  • Must be highly detailed orientated and have the ability to follow and improve processes.


Other information

  • Ability to travel Australia and New Zealand if and when required
  • Attendance at evening events will be required in this role
