Our Specialist Areas

We’re based in Christchurch, and while we work with clients across New Zealand and abroad, our network is strongest in Christchurch and across the South Island.
With both a permanent recruitment and temp recruitment team, we can work with you to take the stress of sourcing staff.
Here are a few of the industries and roles that we excel in:

Freight & Logistics

We are well established across the freight and logistics industries and we have industry wide exposure in terms of roles and candidates. We work with freight forwarders, local and international shipping companies, exporters and importers. We are so ingrained in the local market we often have Export and Import Operators, Export and Import Customer Service Specialists, Documentation Officers, Logistics Coordinators, Customs Brokers, Operations Team Leaders, Store persons and Forklift Operators calling us just to register for upcoming opportunities.

Sales & Sales Management

Both of the Greenlight Directors come from successful sales and sales management backgrounds. We know the sales process inside and out and can spot the difference between a hunter and a farmer.
You might be in need of a Business Development Manager to find you new clients, an outstanding Account Manager to manage and grow a client base, or perhaps a wise Sales Manager that can lead, inspire and grow the success of your team.

Administration & Customer Service

Key roles to a successful business and always highly competitive in terms of applications. As a candidate how do you make sure you stick out in the crowd? As a business how do you wade through the applications to find that outstanding individual that will make your business more successful and have your customers raving about how amazing your company is? You come to Greenlight Recruitment! We are contacted every day from candidates looking to grow their career – Receptionists, Administrators, Accounts Assistants, Payroll Assistants, Customer Service Specialists and Managers. If you think you are a stellar candidate or you need a stellar candidate for your team then call us today!

Temporary Staff 

We initially started providing temporary staff after repeated requests from clients that we recruit for. The temporary staffing solution side of our business has now grown to be a stand alone department that covers both industrial and commercial roles. You’ll benefit from the way we continue our recruitment philosophy in terms of sourcing quality reliable candidates for our temporary division.
If you have a busy period or a staff member heading off on leave call our specialist temp recruiter today to see if we have someone to ensure you have continuity of service to your customers.
