Amelia cranfield

founder and director

With over 13 years of recruitment experience, Amelia cut her teeth in the digital industry in London. She worked for some of the UK’s top media, publishing and communication talent agencies before specialising in recruiting for digital media, marketing and technology roles.

In early 2014, Amelia co-founded one of London’s fastest-growing digital talent agencies and led the team to great success, recruiting for some of the world’s leading digital agencies and their trading desks, publishers, brands and advertising/marketing technology platforms. She also made it a priority to develop an extensive, international network of Kiwi expats working within the digital industry.

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 traveling the world, Amelia came back to New Zealand and launched Campfire Digital Recruitment in mid-2018. She is now focused on building the Auckland-based business and delivering an exceptional recruitment experience to candidates and clients alike.
