Jodi Linder



Managing Director
Executive Career Matchmaker

There’s no doubt about it – I’m a career matchmaker through and through!

For over 14 years I’ve had the absolute privilege of facilitating change though consulting and recruiting in the New Zealand retail sector.

Working in this role, in this sector, is like being part of a giant chess game – I love strategically helping people and companies to make their next key moves. Facilitating change is inspiring! I get to introduce people to opportunities where they can be more of their potential and I get to help great leaders make their commercial and professional visions a reality!

I’m always happy to help, to share my knowledge and expertise, so feel free to get in touch!
