​Hugh joined the Assemble team after working in land acquisition for one of New Zealand’s largest residential property developers. Prior to the pandemic, he was based in Melbourne where he recruited software engineers.

He’s excited to combine the knowledge and skills he learnt in property and development with a recruitment skillset, to spearhead Assembles return to the Engineering sector with a real focus on civil and structural engineering in the land and property development space. 

Hugh’s had a varied career; everything from professional fundraising to managing and mentoring sales teams, working for one of NZ’s leading technology charities and has picked up a certificate in communications from the NZ School of Radio along the way. 

Outside of work, he’s tennis mad, has an interest in most sports, is a keen open water swimmer and is looking forward to exploring more of what Auckland has to offer!
