Mitchell O'Connell

Candidate Manager


Born and raised in Whangamata, Mitchell graduated from Queenstown Resort College in 2017 with a Diploma in Hospitality Management. After spending a few years working in hotels in Queenstown, Mitchell took his talents to London to work in the Pullman London St. Pancras in November of 2019. Refusing to succumb to the pressures of covid, Mitchell completed his two-year work visa and returned to New Zealand shores looking for a new career path.

Coming from a people focused background, Mitchell decided that recruitment was the perfect industry for him where he has enjoyed every moment so far and continues to strive for candidate and client success. Mitchell is now working beside Sam as a Candidate Manager on the construction desk, covering QS, SM and PM positions for commercial, fit-out and residential companies.

In his spare time, you can find him surfing, snowboarding, strumming away on his guitar or on the rugby field.
