A highly effective Senior HR Practitioner, Simon Rudd has nearly 20 years recruitment and remuneration experience in both corporate and consulting environments.
Throughout his successful HR career, Simon has managed blue-chip accounts in Recruitment Agencies (Morgan & Banks, Hudson) as well as outsourced recruitment solutions for a Global Talent Solutions Company (Talent2). He has headed both Talent Acquisition and Remuneration functions for a Listed Corporate (Vector Limited – NZE:VCT), as well as trans-Tasman Remuneration Data operations within a leading HR Consulting firm (Aon Hewitt).
Motivated by a desire to give something back to two areas of HR he is passionate about, Simon established Reward Recruitment in 2017 with one simple goal: ‘To be the recruitment voice of remuneration professionals in Australia and New Zealand’.

We’ve worked with Reward Recruitment to fulfil a couple of highly specialised roles requiring a diligence and perseverance over and above the usual expectations. Simon’s process delivered great outcomes on both occasions and ensured we only met with quality candidates that met the brief perfectly. Top marks! (2018)
I immigrated to New Zealand with many years of Remuneration experience internationally, but with minimal knowledge and experience in the New Zealand market. Simon took the time to coach me through the important similarities and differences to my experiences and prepare me for the recruitment process. I am thankful for Simon's professionalism, responsiveness and encouragement as I start my Rem career in New Zealand. (2021)
