Our Team - The Gunn Way


Gunn Talent was developed from a long journey which has sculpted the beliefs that are now the cornerstone of our business.


Recruitment runs in the Wilson veins, with Director Jo Wilson having successfully started and led one of New Zealand’s best known recruitment firms and Jeremy Wilson, of building and hardware specialist agency Build People, a joint venture partner in Gunn Talent.


However, the name Gunn actually has its roots in another industry altogether – as homage to Jo and Jeremy’s late father Ken’s well known New Zealand amplifier company, Gunn Amplifiers. Gunn Amplifiers were renowned for being well-crafted and made with passion and precision. Not to mention being ruggedly built and able to withstand the rigours of a band on tour.

Our foundations are built on the very same principles that made our father’s business such a great Kiwi success story. We put care into what we do, and we ensure that the relationships we build, and the solutions we put in place, last. We welcome our clients and candidates as an extension of our family and pride ourselves on being relatable, authentic and approachable.

Whether you want to chat about your recruitment needs, a frank discussion about your career, or to hear more about Ken’s New Zealand music industry legacy, we’d love to be part of your story.
