Will heads up the Corporate Agent Team at The Pond, placing creative, design, digital, and marketing talent into freelance, contract, and full-time candidates roles for corporate clients. 

Since joining The Pond in 2017, Will has helped to rapidly grow the corporate side of The Pond’s business, building solid relationships across a diverse range of industries and evolving The Pond’s successful business development strategies.

Prior to The Pond he held a Key Account Management role at Studio Alexander, where he handled accounts ranging from the British Council to Downer Construction. He has founded a design company, worked for Australasia’s largest print and communications company, and has been an Account Director and Bid Manager for leading design agencies.

"We treat the recruitment process with genuine respect because there are people’s livelihoods and businesses at stake,” says Will.

“Human beings are more than their CVs. We dig deeper than other recruiters to find the people who will really help drive our clients’ businesses to new levels.

“We treat everyone with honesty and integrity, and we never leave people hanging – clients or candidates. We keep everyone informed throughout every recruitment process, and every single person who applies for a role will hear from us, whether they’re right for the role or not.”

In his spare time, Will loves fine wines, gourmet food, fly-fishing, and occasional trips to the gym.

Will is the guy to talk to if you’re a corporate business looking to hire NZ’s best marketing, digital, and creative talent for freelance, contract, or fulltime.
