We recruit for digital jobs, and only digital jobs. So, we have a specialist knowledge of the relevant skill sets and backgrounds that make up a good candidate profile. We understand the market, can relate to your business goals and challenges, and quickly get to grips with what you need. Our efficient and targeted service will save your business time and money by getting the right digital talent in place quickly.


We understand that in the post-COVID 19 landscape, your business cashflow may be tight. So, we offer realistic and affordable terms of business. In addition, if you want to spread the invoice cost over several months, we can accommodate this through our finance provider for a set-up fee of $95 + interest.


An experienced account manager will take the helm of your vacancy. As your key point of contact, they will develop an in-depth understanding of your business and job opportunity. They’ll give you an overview of the current talent market and how best to position your role. Working with you as an extension of your business, they’ll meet you and get under the skin of your vacancy, understanding your company culture and ideal candidate profile.


We understand that the best candidates are not always actively looking. We proactively seek out the best talent for your vacancy through research, market-mapping, growth hacking, our social media channels, referrals, and by attending digital events throughout the country and the world.


We take great pride in our responsive, professional, ‘can do’ approach. We’ll keep you informed every step of the way, tailoring the search based on your feedback, and maintaining excellent communication throughout the entire recruitment process.


In addition to local digital talent, we have an extensive international network of Kiwi expats who’d move home for the right job. We also have strong connections with overseas talent who are relocating to New Zealand. This means your shortlist of candidates will include fresh faces with skills from overseas, as well as the best New Zealand talent available.

two recruitment services for companies

This recruitment model offers the maximum level of service. “Exclusive” means that Campfire is the sole recruitment agency working on your vacancy for an agreed period of time. Our exclusive service allows us to prioritise your job and provide you with additional levels of service to reflect your commitment. We will charge the agreed fee only if we make a successful placement.

In addition to the services offered in our contingency model:

  • A dedicated recruitment account manager plus additional resource depending upon the role
  • Priority time allocated for candidate research, market-mapping and headhunting
  • A vacancy advertisement on LinkedIn, Seek and other sites in addition to Campfire’s own website
  • Our tailored recruitment solutions
  • Candidates who have been pre-interviewed specifically for this role
  • Full market penetration: we fully map out the market to identify the best passive and active talent, and personally approach each candidate to engage them in a powerful way
  • Time saving: your recruitment manager is your one, accountable point of contact for the entire recruitment process. This means you have one person to liaise with, instead of multiple
  • Brand positioning: in choosing Campfire as the only recruitment agency taking your vacancy to market, you ensure that one consistent and well-delivered message goes out to a highly targeted selection of relevant potential candidates. This protects and enhances the value of your brand in a small marketplace
  • Rigor: we interview each candidate specifically for your vacancy
  • Cost: although there is a higher service level, there are no upfront costs as the fee is paid only when the position is filled

  • Tailored recruitment solutions: we add further, bespoke recruitment services that match the needs of your business

  • Help with identifying the vacancy’s selling points as well as guidance on employer branding to ensure maximum appeal in the market

Contingent (sometimes called non-exclusive) recruitment means that we will submit candidates alongside those you get from other sources such as your internal HR team, your own network and any other recruitment agencies. We will charge the agreed fee only if we are successful in placing your vacancy.


  • A dedicated recruitment account manager
  • Opportunity for a face-to-face or video-conference briefing on your business and the vacancy
  • A vacancy advertisement on the Campfire website and other job boards as necessary

  • A targeted campaign utilising local and international candidate networks

Disadvantages of Contingency Model

  • More time-consuming: you’ll spend additional time on administration as there’s a lot of double handling involved when employers brief multiple recruiters for the same job vacancy
  • Accountability: it could be difficult to hold several talent-suppliers accountable for results
  • Clunky process: potentially easier to lose control over the process when you are liaising with numerous candidates from different sources
  • Vacancy and company marketing: the value of your brand can be diluted in the market if multiple recruiters are contacting candidates with various degrees of quality
  • Relationship hindered: it can stop you investing more time with one committed recruitment partner where trust is established, and the best results are delivered
