Ralph Suckling

From a small town in Hawkes Bay, Ralph joined the New Zealand Navy straight from high school – completing an apprenticeship as a Marine Fitter and gaining Advanced Trade Certificate and a Naval Boiler ticket.

After 6.1/2 years he left to commence a career in technical sales and over the next 25 years sold mechanical engineering products, injection moulded plastics, training services and IT documentation services.

Ralph began technical recruiting in 2002, had a hiatus for 6.1/2 years while working for the Salvation Army, and returned to RobLawMax Recruitment in September 2016 specialising in the Civil Contracting market.

Ralph’s other interests include enjoying time with his family, keyboards, piano, singing & digital recording, boating, fishing DIY and church.


"He aha te mea nui o te ao

What is the most important thing in the world?

He tangata, he tangata, he tangata

It is the people, it is the people, it is the people" - Maori proverb


I can't claim a drop of Maori blood but this proverb perfectly reflects my motivations.

There's a purpose for every life and placing someone into a great job where they fit, flourish and build up their organisation is very satisfying. Strong companies and organisations enable communities to grow, nurture and help keep New Zealand a great place to live, work and bring up our families.
