Sector Knowledge

Darren’s strength is in identifying and connecting local and international talents with our clients in the technical sector. He has very good understanding of the skill-sets required for different trades, as well as up-to-date knowledge in engineering and manufacturing methodology used for different industries within the New Zealand market space.

Darren adds great value to our clients in this sector from his ability to pick out the ‘must have’ hands-on skills that are often not immediately apparent on CVs and resumes, whilst ensuring that these skills align with your operation and the direction of your organisation from a technical standpoint. For candidates, Darren seeks to understand how different opportunities will benefit you in the day-to-day work environment and how they fit into your long-term career goals and lifestyle preference. In a sector where these skills are becoming increasingly difficult to find in New Zealand, Darren’s persistent and committed recruitment style, complimented by our advanced search analytics, have proven to be a winning combination.

Darren’s talents extend far beyond the realm of recruiting. He’s a brown tip in Kung Fu with Chan’s Martial Arts and holds a national certificate in level 2 white water kayaking. Darren enjoys hanging out with friends, watching movies/TV and playing games in his spare time. Born and raised in Hong Kong, Darren is also qualified in teaching English as a second language.
