Kirsti is the founder of SocialSauce, New Zealand’s first 100% socially -powered talent agency focusing on technology and social media.

Kirsti began her career in the digital world at Trade Me Jobs as an Account Manager. It was here where she gained invaluable experience in recruitment advertising and became a huge fan of the recruitment industry in New Zealand and the people who are a part of it. At Trade Me Jobs, Kirsti started using social media to build the Trade Me Jobs brand and also her own personal profile. This lead to her being offered a role at jobs.co.nz which was where she developed a division specialising in social media for recruitment, offering strategy development and training solutions to recruiters and employers all over New Zealand.

Kirsti’s mission is to have everyone in the New Zealand recruitment industry using social media in a way that is effective for their business and to be the trusted source in providing best practice advice and solutions.
