Mark Robinson, Managing Director
Before founding Allerton Recruitment, Mark worked for a specialist recruiter in Auckland and quickly applied skills learned in the UK to the New Zealand market.

His career began in 1999 with one of the UK’s leading construction recruitment agencies. Then in 2006 he set up a new office in the north of England for a young and rapidly expanding recruitment business that he continued to manage before seeking a fresh challenge ‘Down Under’.
