Penni listens to clients to put their needs first and loves partnering with them to deliver honest solutions. She spent 20 years working with global recruitment firms and was chosen as Recruitment Leader of the Year (Seek SARA, 2018). Penni is an active member of the RCSA (peak body for the recruitment and staffing industry in New Zealand and Australia).  She sits on the NZ Council and is a Board Director for New Zealand and Australia.

Penni is a Certified Private Investigator, therefore is available to assist with any misconduct, bullying or harassment cases on behalf of clients.

"The HR advice that Penni and Viv have been able to provide to Mainland Football has been first class. It has helped us to navigate some challenging processes but has always ensured that people were at the centre of the process. I would highly recommend Togethr to any company looking for HR support."

Julian Bowden  • CEO Mainland Football

“We were looking for a new team member to join our team and we had no idea where to start! So…that’s where Togethr stepped in.  We met with Penni once and that was all that we needed, we could see Penni had a good grasp of what we needed and the type of person we were after. We let Penni do the ground work and she found us a wonderful new staff member, far too easy!”

Mary  • Homes By Parklane

"We wanted someone to be there for our team and take them safely through the transitional process at hand. Viv and Penni proved incredibly efficient and enjoyable to work with. They took us through what was to be a seamless process. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Togethr."

"In the ever-changing environment of HR, Togethr has been a vital resource to us.  They understanding who we are and the challenges we face as a manufacturer. Any time we have made contact they have been very responsive, provided not only the information required but also the next steps we need to be thinking about."

Ginia Gouman • Packtech

"We were very grateful to have found Penni and Viv from Togethr to help us navigate through some difficult issues that had arisen within our business. They were easy to relate to, helped us see what our options were and made sure we followed the correct procedures. We appreciated them being available when we needed them and felt very supported throughout the whole process. We would certainly recommend Togethr."

Duncan and Jo • Duncan Taylor Builders

"Our business has spent two years in search of the right employee for our Wellington retail store. We approached Viv and discussed our options regarding our existing staff and how we could accommodate a new person. We also discussed the person specifications for the job. Viv came back with a number of great candidates and managed the process start to finish. We were impressed with Viv's pragmatic and professional approach, and we have a great new employee. Thoroughly recommended."
