Josie Clarke

Senior Consultant, Accounting - Permanent

About Josie

I’m a specialist mid to senior Accounting and Finance recruiter. I am known for connecting great businesses with the best emerging and established talent out there.

I invest my time in building relationships within this cohort, supporting them in their process, understanding what they are looking for, acting as a sounding board, and providing career advice.  When I have a role from a client, I typically already know a number of people who will be perfect for the position because I know the talent in this space, what they are looking for and what culture they will fit. My role is much broader than finding someone technically capable – it’s all about finding the right role for the individual, which means a cultural fit, an aligned mentor, as well as a business that supports their career aspirations in the long run.

The most important thing for me is making the right match for the client and the candidate.

I have been in recruitment for almost 8 years, the last 6 ½ years within the Accounting & Finance sector. Prior to joining Hunter Campbell, I worked at a multinational recruitment business and have worked across contract & permanent vacancies, so I have a good understanding of the Auckland market and top talent.

I’m known for placing Senior Accounting talent into exciting roles across SME businesses and large corporates and I’ve developed a reputation for placing talent in a very short space of time.


Permanent recruitment solutions: Financial/External Reporting Manager, Finance Manager, Financial Controller, Finance Business Partner, FP&A Manager, Commercial Manager.


Life Outside the Office

Originally from the UK, I have been living in New Zealand for over 10 years and I have set up roots here. So, I’m essentially a Kiwi but with a weird accent. I’m a keen horse-rider, very accident prone (if you ask my Boss), love anything adrenalin based and have a wee cocker spaniel called Billy, who I love to sneak into the office as often as I can.
