The only dedicated Remuneration and Benefits recruitment practice in Australia and New Zealand, Reward Recruitment is the first-choice partner for Remuneration and Benefits professionals seeking their next career opportunity, and for organisations wishing to source the very best Remuneration and Benefits talent in the market.
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’.
I have been both a client and a candidate of Simon, through Reward Recruitment, as well as knowing him prior. Because of his remuneration consulting and recruitment background, he has a deep understanding and knowledge of reward roles and can quickly ascertain your needs for a perfect fit, both from a technical and cultural perspective. In addition, he has a wicked sense of humour, is incredibly supportive and will move mountains to find the perfect role or candidate for you. (2021)
Nikki Groshinski- Remuneration and Benefits Manager – Abacus Property Group, Sydney
Having recently received the strong and proactive support in placing me at a firm I wanted to take a moment to commend Simon. During the course of 6 weeks, we had a number of useful opportunities/discussions and Simon appears to have mastered the art of identifying opportunities correctly aligned to the skill sets and motivations of the candidates. Thanks for everything, hope your business continues to go from strength to strength and that you can continue to cope with the added pressures of a Covid family environment. Look forward to partnering with you again in the future. (2021)
Phil Rigby– Remuneration and TM Systems Manager (Interim) – Baker McKenzie, Sydney
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)

From the very first message, I noticed that Reward Recruitment's approach would be different than your normal recruitment agencies. Their knowledge on key remuneration aspects led to right questions being asked, which led to more accurate answers and a better match to what the client was looking for as a final outcome.
