Colin Ria

Principal Recruitment Consultant

Colin joins Lynx Recruitment with nearly a decade of experience in labour hire recruitment. Starting his recruitment journey during the Christchurch earthquakes, Colin was part of one of NZ’s largest agencies, specialising in civil and construction. This is where he learnt the importance of delivering on time and what is promised.

From Christchurch, Colin then joined another major player in the recruitment game. Based in South Auckland, he learnt the importance of patience and persistence with a focus in the manufacturing and logistics industries.

Colin’s previous role as a recruiter is where he began in a new area, recruiting with both local and offshore workers in construction and civil.

Being a part of three major players in NZ recruitment has allowed Colin to work and learn in three different environments and enabled him to work alongside some of the country’s largest companies and projects nationwide.

Colin bases himself on honesty and commitment, combining that with nearly a decade of experience, there isn’t a project or role that Colin has not been able to fill.

“I am excited to start this journey with Lynx and use all the experience and knowledge I have gained from the amazing teams I have worked with to grow and work collaboratively alongside my clients and candidates.”

A passionate supporter of rugby and League you will often see Colin at a game or out watching, so always feel free to join him for a beer or a gin.
