About Us

Intelligence has many facets. It requires acumen, judgement, insight, sharpness, courage, intuition and brilliance.

At red, these are the smarts we bring to the table to achieve the very best recruitment outcomes. They allow us to fully integrate into your business, to deeply understand your brief and to identify top talent to help take your business forward.

Essentially, we know where people are, and if we don’t, we have the tools and search capacity to find them.

We have been applying our thoughtful and robust approach to recruitment across New Zealand and offshore since 2003. We are particularly strong in Executive Search, but we are committed to delivering excellent results irrespective of the level we recruit at, and that's at all levels - from the front desk to the boardroom.
