| Gerard Hansen


I'm Gerard Hansen, and I've been working as a Recruitment Consultant for NTA since 2016 and since April 2023 as the Executive Director of Alpine Immigration and Recruitment NZ. During this time, I've placed hundreds of graduates into employment, mainly in the dairy industry, but also in many other fields.

With over 20 years in the recruitment industry, both in the public and private sector, I'm well qualified to act as a consultant. I recently graduated as a Licensed Immigration Adviser from Toi-Ohomai with a Graduate Diploma in New Zealand Immigration Advice (Level 7).

I also hold a Business Management Diploma and various Recruitment Qualifications. I like to think of myself as experienced, personable, and supportive. I have a long history of working to achieve a positive outcome for all parties involved.

I have dealt with Gerard for over 4 years now and find him brilliant to deal with. I’m a farmer on multiple fronts in our family business and don’t have time for staffing leads that don’t go anywhere. We have found Gerard to get straight to the point where employees coming for a job interview Gerard quickly determines whether or not they are a compatible match in our business, he’s honest and has no trouble bringing issues up. We enjoy working with Gerard and look forward to the years to come.

I have been dealing with the Gerard since June 2018, We have now had 5 employees through Gerard working on our dairy farm and there is a reason why we keep going back when needing staff. They come to the farm with a good basic knowledge of farm skills and most importantly they come with the ability to learn. I recommend Gerard to any prospective employer.
