New Zealand – EFU Investment acquires Consult Recruitment

09 August 2019

New Zealand-based specialist recruitment firm, Consult Recruitment, announced their acquisition by Auckland-based investment firm, EFU Investment Ltd.

The deal was effective from 31 March 2019. Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed. 

The acquisition sees the existing senior leadership team for Consult staying in place and creates significant growth opportunities for the firm.

Consult describes itself as the most experienced specialist accounting, finance & financial services recruitment team in New Zealand. It was launched in 2008 by Angela Cameron, a specialist accounting and finance recruitment leader. Consult now employs over 25 consultants and has expanded to recruit within the accounting, finance, leadership, legal, HR and sales functions.

Cameron commented, “We are excited to have the backing of EFU. Consult now has more ability to change people’s lives through their careers and help businesses succeed through the people we find for them. This vision mirrors EFU’s, which is crucial for success, and hugely important for our team as a values-based organisation. I am ambitious for our future as we aim to make Consult the best place to work in New Zealand.”

Consult’s Chair and industry advisor Greg Savage also commented, “We now have ambitious (and scalable) growth plans in place, and our EFU relationship allows us the opportunity to do this through entering new sectors and pursuing new acquisitions. We are open to a wide range of investment opportunities.”
