ROI talentDue to expansion and evolution of its business, ROI Talent have recently moved to its new premises at the Textile Centre in Parnell, offering better facilities for its clients and candidates with easy parking and more space.

The company was founded in 2013 when Director Kirsty Cels, found a niche in FMCG recruitment for highly personalised service and in-depth market coverage. Kirsty remains focussed on a strategy which allows clients to work with her personally at all touch points throughout the recruitment process. This, alongside a relatively unencumbered approach to headhunting, means Kirsty has a wider reach into extended talent pools for her clients.

“FMCG structures are relatively flat in the New Zealand market, teams are small and talent pools finite. The ability to talk to the most extensive group possible, alongside networks, remains critical,” says Cels. Enhanced recruitment methodology better assesses candidates’ capability (versus just their interview performance) and has been another recent development at ROI Talent.

The way candidates access job opportunities has changed due to technology, however Kirsty says that technology has also impacted the way they prepare for interviews. Newer selection techniques are being applied as of 2015 and she looks to working with those in the industry as the year unfolds.
