Global IT recruiter Hays IT Personnel has set up shop in New Zealand.
The UK-based company already has non-IT divisions operating in Auckland's ASB Bank Centre.
Hays IT Personnel also operates across Australia and Europe.
Manager Dave Harwood says after focussing on Auckland, the company eventually plans to open an office in Wellington.
Harwood says Hays Personnel brings much experience to recruitment having operated for 40 years, 27 years in IT.
"We have seen the market fluctuations across Australia and Europe. We know how to apply different services. We are the largest IT recruiter in Europe, currently listed at $7 billion," he says.
Harwood adds the market remains "strong for high calibre, highly skilled IT candidates".
