Established in 2011, at the height of the down turn in the New Zealand economy, David Adams started up Total Recruitment after working for large multi-national organisations.  With over 25 years’ experience in the NZ recruitment market and having experience in both the Industrial and Commercial markets, for Permanent and Temporary Recruitment, David brings a wealth of experience to the company.
