We’ve been recruiting recruiters since 2009.  As New Zealand slowly emerged from the GFC, founder Jonathan Rice spotted a gap in the market for a quality agency rec-to-rec offering, so set about building one. A year later the home office became an Auckland office and the service offering grew. Sean Walters joined in 2011 and we started recruiting for in-house recruitment and HR teams too. After many years recruiting for, blogging about, speaking to, and networking with recruiters, Rice & Co is now widely-regarded as NZ’s expert rec-to-rec.


We provide permanent and contracting recruitment services to the Recruitment and HR industries. Our clients gain access to the best Recruitment and HR professionals through our use of traditional, online, direct approach and social media sourcing strategies.
