Julie Gilmore

Originally from Ireland, Julie started her journey in recruitment more than 25 years ago, a career that has seen her lead teams across both the medical and commercial recruitment sectors. Having first worked for Ryan in the early 2000s, Julie returned to the business in 2012 and after a decade in the senior leadership team, she became Managing Director in 2021.

For her, it’s all about providing a positive and valuable experience that exceeds expectations and creates a win-win for both candidates and clients. Julie wholeheartedly feels that recruitment is a people business and should never be transactional. Everything she does is built around this mindset, something that’s been key to creating so many long-term relationships over the years. This deep understanding of peoples’ needs and aspirations drives both her and the business's approach, with some clients working alongside Ryan for more than 30 years.

After calling New Zealand home for more than two decades, Julie is well established in the local business community and with a busy family life, she can’t imagine anywhere better to live than Christchurch.
