Petra Jackson

Recruiter - Christchurch

I’ve lived quite a few places in New Zealand, from Balclutha to Wellington, but I am proud to call Canterbury home. Work wise I also have a varied history, everything from Contract Admin Analyst to a Team Leader in a telecommunications call centre.

My recruitment journey started in 2019 working for a large international corporate agency, but the appeal of getting to genuinely know and support candidates led to me joining CanRecruit early 2020. I am passionate about Recruitment and helping people get into the best fit job for them.

Areas of Specialty
My recruitment specialty is within the Manufacturing and Logistics sectors.

Family, friends, beer & books. Couple that with a bit of avid Netflix binging and regular adventures with my partner.

I am also the founding chair of a group called FLINT (Future Leaders in Technology), run under TUANZ. The concept of FLINT is to connect and empower those who aspire to be the leaders of New Zealand’s digital future. It’s a group for all those people in the initial years of their career who are passionate about leading that digital future.
