About Ryan Recruitment

ABOUT US

Locally owned and operated, Ryan has been supporting businesses and candidates in Canterbury for more than 35 years. 

Established in 1988, our network of clients and candidates is extensive, working across private and government business sectors, we partner with diverse organisations from SME’s, corporates and multinationals – we’re proud to hold the status of preferred supplier to many entities. 

Ryan’s reputation as a reliable supplier of staffing, recruitment and HR services is reflected in our impressive collection of five-star Google reviews in addition to business and candidate referrals.  Organisations and people choose to work with us time and time again. 

Our recruitment services extend to permanent, temporary and contract vacancies across a wide range of fields:

  • Civil Construction & Engineering  
  • Sales & Customer Service

Recognised for our staff tenure, our recruitment consultants are in it for the long haul. This long-standing expertise means we’ve had the privilege of partnering with organisations throughout their growth and assisting candidates on their career journeys.  

In 2021, after nearly a decade as a member of our leadership and recruitment team, Julie Gilmore took the helm as our Managing Director. Under her leadership, we’ve not only continued our legacy of success, but we’ve flourished, reaching new heights of achievement and service excellence.  

Supporting our community is central to our values. We partner with Assistance Dogs NZ, sponsor Canterbury Ice Hockey, and support various sports clubs in our community. We’re also proud members of Safe Space Alliance and Diversity Works promoting diversity in Aotearoa.   

At Ryan, we believe we’re accountable for the effect our business practices have on the environment. We take a proactive approach and have built sustainability into our operations—for example, partnering with CarbonInvoice allows us to offset our carbon footprint whilst contributing to a more sustainable future for generations to come.  

We are members of the RCSA (Recruitment Consulting Services Association).
