In early 2014, Amelia co-founded a successful digital talent agency in London and led the team to great success, recruiting for some of the world’s leading brands and online businesses, agencies and trading desks, and publishers.

In mid-2017, Amelia sold her share of the business in order to return to New Zealand and to bring her digital recruitment skill-set home. After a few months travelling the world, Amelia came back to New Zealand and launched Campfire Digital Recruitment in 2018. She is now focused on building the Auckland-based business and delivering an exceptional recruitment experience to candidates and clients alike.

Born in England, Ieuan started his recruitment journey in 2016 after receiving a Bachelors in Marketing, Advertising, and Communications from the University of Gloucestershire.
Ieuan then headed down under in 2018 and joined ReachLocal as an internal recruiter initially, and then moved into digital campaign management. The allure of recruitment was still strong though, so Ieuan is now at Campfire to showcase his awesome digital industry knowledge and source fantastic talent.
In his downtime, you’ll find Ieuan scoping out festivals and watching the latest football games.
P.S. The name is Welsh, so say “Yi-yan” (Rhyme “Yi” with “High”!)
