Management

Dave McGruddy

Mission Controller (Director and owner)


I was brought up in Hawkes Bay and had the opportunity to travel the world before landing in Wellington about 19 years ago. I have worked as a Senior Recruitment Consultant over the past 17 years, and managed multiple accounts within both Government and private organisations. On a personal level I have four wonderful children, Amber, Holly, Harry and Charlie. On a professional level, I love the chase of finding new opportunities, working with new clients and making the connection for both candidates and clients. I get a real thrill out of seeing a positive outcome for people.

With the changes recently to the recruitment industry, I felt it was time to build a recruitment company that focuses on quality, instead of quantity. I have old fashioned values and believe the end to end process of recruitment should not be compromised. I want to be proud of bringing traditional values with the use of new age technology. Our team at Rockit is built around having common goals, working as a team, and individually enjoying what we do best! I hope your experience with dealing with us is a refreshing and positive one, so always keen to hear your feedback.
