Carrington Recruitment was established when Director Tim Carrington saw the need for a localised recruitment specialist, one that would operate exclusively within the Taranaki market, catering specifically to the Engineering and Surveying sectors. With strong leadership and local New Zealand knowledge, Carrington Recruitment since it’s inception has gone from strength to strength.

Carrington Recruitment takes pride in supplying exceptional recruitment services and solutions that not only meet, but also exceed the expectations of all involved.

The face behind the name: Tim Carrington- Director

Having graduated Victoria University in 2003 with a BA in Psychology and Education, Tim dived straight into oil and gas. He spent a year working directly in the sector as a lease hand on the rigs and also as a trainee operator on a production station in Midhurst. This is where he gained an insight into rig life and how tough it can be gaining entry into this somewhat exclusive industry. Moving back into HR and working with the likes of the Taranaki District Health Board, Capital and Coast District Health Board, AECOM and HAYS he gained specialist recruitment skills in oil and gas and worked with major industry leaders to recruit both nationally and internationally.

After a number of years working in mainly in-house recruitment roles Tim knew he could provide a better service to clients. Returning to Taranaki, Tim had kept up his passion for the oil industry.  He decided to focus his efforts in the oil patch with a particular focus towards the Taranaki region. This lead to the establishment of Carrington Recruitment. It is Tim’s immense passion for the industry, values towards building long standing relationships and desire to see New Zealand’s home of oil and gas prosper that sets him apart from the rest.
