About Us


I started Patrick Smith HR Limited in 2009 following a 20 year human resources career with a global seafood company.   It was the ideal environment for learning how to deliver practical HR solutions to fulfill customer expectations.  Those experiences helped confirm for me that working in HR was the place I wanted to be.

University qualified in human resources and holding directorships which includes being president of the local Chamber of Commerce provides examples of my capability and versatility.

Our clients come from both big and small business including exporters, council organisations, consulting services, education and professional rugby.  We enjoy helping business owner’s work through their HR challenges from strategic planning to training and recruiting staff.  We are also experienced in business restructuring, mediation and disciplinary processes. Let’s meet and discuss how we can work together.
