Meet The Team
Two decades ago I returned from Europe and was keen to start something of my own. I'd worked as a labourer and enjoyed networking and generally helping people out, so labour hire seemed a good fit. The year was 1994 and 'The Labour Exchange' was born....
What matters to me most is people and I have learned that, to be successful, you need to surround yourself with great people. I am very fortunate to have a fantastic team both in our office and out on our sites.
In my spare time I like to spend time with my partner Robyn and our our 2 boys Marlo and Hew. I'm also a keen music listener and enjoy seeing live bands play. If I had more time I would play more golf or go fishing....as long as it's fun, I'm not fussy...!!
Bevan has been with The Labour Exchange for 7 years, starting out as our city driver and depot supervisor, then moving into the operations management role in mid 2010. He is still very much hands-on at the depot, organising orders, making sure the right person is chosen for the job, and co-ordinating site visits to make sure our workers and clients are looked after. His personable manner and professional approach make him well received by workers and clients alike.
HEALTH AND SAFETY OFFICER
Craig is a 15 year veteran as of The Labour Exchange. He has, over that time, developed an in depth understanding of the industry and has forged many long standing relationships with clients and workers alike. Craig monitors and maintains our health and safety processes, which are an increasingly vital aspect of our industry.
Steve's enthusiasm at work is infectious. He liaises with new clients and runs inductions at our depot. Steve also plays a big role in health and safety conducting tool box talks onsite with our workers, and completing accident investigations to the highest standard. Steve epitomizes what it means to be a "Good Bastard" and is always willing to lend a hand and help out where needed.
In his spare time Steve enjoys time with his family, riding his Indian motorcycle and going to the gym.
Caleb is the bright young star of the company. Caleb is responsible for designing and implementing new recruitment strategies in addition to running our Facebook page. His main role is to seek out fresh talent for our workforce. Caleb also assists in their placement with our clients while working closely with the Ministry of Social Development.
During his time off you will most likely find Caleb on the cricket pitch or out fishing.
Mike has worked for The Labour Exchange for 8 years and has established strong relationships with his clients in South Auckland who appreciate his reliable, friendly approach.
