What inspired you to start your business?

I love Recruitment, but the industry needed a shake up. Agency fees are extremely expensive and not everyone has the budget to use them or to hire a permanent in-house HR or Recruitment professional. The only two choices you have are using a Recruitment Agency or doing it yourself. We all know doing it yourself poses loads of potential headaches and costly mistakes. I love that JOYN is a cost effective, professional service that anyone can use.

Tell us about your business?

JOYN is not a Recruitment Agency. We are a Consultancy and provide Recruitment and HR professionals on demand. As a service, no fees!

Our experienced Recruiters & HR Professionals are charged out by the hour and paid by the hour. We provide you with an experienced Consultant to match your needs. We cover every industry and type of role Nationwide. We even have search firm Consultants that can market map and head hunt for hard to fill or executive level roles at a fraction of the cost.

JOYN is a simple pay as you go model. It is like having your own internal Consultant that you can turn on and off as and when you like. They can do as much or as little of the process as you like. You are in control and can start and stop a project at any time.

All collateral belongs to you, hire 1 or hire 5 staff there are no fees or extras. You just pay for the hours the Consultant has worked to uncover and screen potential talent for your business.

Everything is done online and we give you access to our platform the Consultants use. You can view and sign off adverts, hours worked, view shortlists and activity and track your spend.

At the end of every assignment you get a report and you get to rate your Consultant out of 10.

With 321 Clients, 91 Consultants and 974 assignments completed so far, we’re helping businesses all over New Zealand.

What do you love about running your business?

Wellington and the Lower North Island region is where I’m based. I love Wellington, we really are a cool little capital. Helping businesses with a professional and affordable HR & Recruitment solution. Giving them time back to focus on other important things in their business, taking away the headaches, seeing the cost savings and quality outcomes. There are so many businesses JOYN can help and I feel privileged to be the one fronting this amazing innovative solution. I love my job.

What have been some of your biggest challenges?

Anything new and innovative or slightly different than the norm is often met with skepticism. Some people have developed a negative opinion about Recruitment services either from bad experiences or even just from the cost. It has been difficult to get peoples attention, to actually discuss the huge differences with our model. They’ve often switched off and said no before even understanding what JOYN is and the problems we are solving for more and more businesses every day. If you never try something new, you’ll never know, and never grow.

Who inspires you, and why?

Lots of people inspire me. People who try and fail and try again. People who are humble about their success. People who give more than they have. People who are honest and caring and not afraid to show their feelings. People who are strong, determined and competitive but happier about the achievement than the reward.
