Joining the dots since 2002, Portfolio’s recruitment specialists have the knowledge and skill to match people and place. Our consultants are experienced and truly connected with the creative industry. They live for making great matches for talented people and teams like you.

With so many ways to work, our approach is to stay flexible, so we offer full time, part time, contract and freelance roles across all aspects of the creative industry.

Debbie Kitson

Director/Creative Consultant
debbie@portfoliorecruitment.co.nz

Portfolio’s founder and lateral thinker Debbie thrives on ‘making the match’. Offering someone their dream role or introducing a star candidate to an in-demand agency is what makes her tick – she’s got serious industry knowledge and the contacts to match. These days Debbie’s professional matchmaking is itself coupled with management duties and a passion for baking.

Annie McCulloch

Consultant, Freelance
annie@portfoliorecruitment.co.nz

Annie is a fountain of knowledge, with a passion for all things creative (including rock music). Starting off in a temp role in 2005, Annie has yet to escape the allure of recruitment. She loves the personal aspect of her role, and has built great relationships with both clients and candidates. But more importantly, she’s made great matches between them as well.

Sharon Darrah

Financial Controller
sharon@portfoliorecruitment.co.nz

A lynchpin of our team since 2006, Sharon keeps ours a tight ship. From spreadsheets to contracts to being a constant voice of reason, she brings solid business experience that goes far beyond ‘bean counting’ – in an industry where trust and reputation are everything. We’re fortunate that working with Portfolio wins out (just) over sunbathing on the deck of her (imaginary) luxury yacht.

Caro Armstrong

Consultant, Account Service
carolyn@portfoliorecruitment.co.nz

With huge experience ‘in the field’ Caro comes from an advertising and design agency background. This gives this excellent listener an invaluable perspective on what clients really need – having been a suit for years, she knows what makes a good one, whether freelance, contract or permanent. The lovely people at Portfolio are a welcome respite from her three children, which keep her busy after hours.

Natalie Babbage

Creative Consultant
natalie@portfoliorecruitment.co.nz

Natalie came on board in 2015. Her role as match maker she feels is like a game of memory. If she could however choose to be doing anything else, it would be cycling around Milan in high heels eating gelato! For now Natalie enjoys meeting and working with inspirational, creative people and finding candidates their dream job.

Emma Davis

Office Administrator
emma@portfoliorecruitment.co.nz

Emma joined the team in 2016. She comes from a design background, so knows a thing or two about the industry, and she is a real people person. When she's not meeting and greeting creatives at Portfolio, she enjoys travelling, trying new eateries and being with her boys. Clearly she fits right in!
