NZ’s 920 hits a high note with contractor business

By

Two years after its acquisition by Australia’s Finite Group, New Zealand recruitment firm 920 has boosted business in the contractor market on the back of increasing demand for project tech specialists.

920’s ANZ regional manager Sean Duffy said contractor revenues had continued to grow at more than 13% year-on-year, buoyed by the continuing digital transformation and technology change management drive underpinning NZ’s continuing strong economic growth.  

“Finite has always been very customer and service delivery focused, with 920 sharing this same mindset. Ensuring that our team had access to the best tools, systems and search channels is also important and combining the businesses has considerably enhanced the NZ team’s access to good candidates,” Duffy said.

“State of the art video conferencing was one of the first investments we made, not only opening up dialogue between our NZ teams, but facilitating much wider cross-Tasman discussions to avail of best practices and thinking.  

“To date, this has proved invaluable with NZ punching well above its weight offering some great input and ideas. We are also having a lot of success attracting skilled Australians across the ditch and vice versa.”

Duffy said 920 had invested in the creation of a new NZ national manager role, recently filled by respected industry leader Dave Newick.  

“With responsibility to continue to grow market share and expand the range of award winning services on offer, Newick has hit the ground running with several new hires already under his belt and more in the pipeline as 920 continues to expand its NZ team."

“Having been an active player in the NZ tech recruitment sector for some time, I was instantly attracted to 920 because of its strong pedigree and tremendous client base across NZ, together with the ability to provide a wide range of talent and services based solutions to clients,” Newick said.
