Same team, same clients,

and now, the same name:

After ten years of sharing stuff, Shamrock Recruitment and Coverstaff Recruitment now share the same name: Coverstaff. 

We don’t want to make too much of a fuss, because it’s business as usual around here. But in a very Kiwi way, this change is a big deal.
With Coverstaff Recruitment and Shamrock Recruitment combined, Coverstaff is now the largest Māori-owned recruitment company in New Zealand.
Our strong position in Auckland is now supported by our Wellington branch, Palmerston North operation, and our specific projects in regional areas.
We are proud to say we work with companies that form the very backbone of everyday Kiwi life.

Get in touch. Get started.

We’re a fast moving agency, which means many of the roles we receive from our clients are filled immediately. This means we only advertise about 10% of the jobs that come our way. To access our jobs, call us directly or book a call-back and find the right position for you, without the hassle.

Our Values.
