Andrew Copeland

Recruitment Manager

P: 022 635 0314

Andrew is happy to admit that he is a failed accountant, having studied the subject at degree level. Realising his skills were more suited to recruitment and HR, he built many of his professional foundations lecturing at the University of Central Lancashire. There he tutored undergraduates on HR, with his particular academic interests lying in career management and performance appraisal.

Putting theory into practice Andrew moved into the commercial sector gaining employment as a HR consultant in India with one of the country’s largest outsourcing corporate businesses.

After his time in India, Andrew moved back to his homeland of Manchester to go back to the field of finance and accounting but this time in recruitment. Andrew openly confesses to being more successful at this than balance sheet reconciliations!

After a successful time recruiting in England, Andrew immigrated to Christchurch in 2009 where he has been successfully placing accountants and senior finance professionals ever since.

Like most Christchurch residents Andrew has worked through the trying times created by the Canterbury earthquakes, and he is proud to call Christchurch home and play his part in the economic regeneration of the city.

Relationships and respect in those relationships are the cornerstones of Andrew’s personal brand in Christchurch and he is proud to boast many key and senior financial executives in his professional and personal networks.

Andrew specialises in senior financial roles including:

  • CFO Group Financial Manager
  • Financial Controller
  • Commercial Manager
  • Accountant – Fully Qualified
  • Analyst

Tania left NZ to live in the big smoke of Sydney back in 2007 where began recruiting exclusively for Accounting and Finance and has not looked back since. Since then Tania, has worked for Multinational recruitment businesses both in Sydney and Christchurch, with a spot of family making thrown in for good measure.

Despite her best efforts to follow her own Career path with recruitment, Accounting and Finance was always a natural choice with Tania’s father being a well-known partner of CA practices across Marlborough. It now only seems fitting that this is the arena she now specialises in.

Tania gets a real sense of satisfaction from helping and guiding people into companies that suit their long term personal and professional goals. Believing there is a lot more to the perfect candidate/job than purely than what is on paper; relationships are the key foundations that allow her to find the right fit on more than just a technical level.

With two young children life is full throttle balancing home-life and career, but with help from her very supportive husband, family & coffee Tania wouldn’t have it any other way.

Tania focuses on accounting support roles including:

  • Accounts Clerks – Payable/Receivable
  • Payroll Officer
  • Assistant Accountant
  • Accounting Technician
  • Accountant – Junior/Intermediate
