ConsultingHQ was formed after seeing the need in so many businesses for expert HR advice but without having the need to employ someone full time.
We are now the trusted go to group for clients NZ wide for all sizes and industries. Lean and Marketing Consulting have also joined the ConsultingHQ services, making us a one stop shop for our clients. RecuitNZ (also managed by Tanya Gray) works alongside this team to provide recruitment support and VisaAide (managed by Cameron Gray-Tanya’s husband) provides NZ and Australian Immigration assistance to clients and also their employees.
Working with business owners and senior management teams on HR and Strategy is Tanya’s passion. With a background in HR, recruitment, sales and adult education Tanya combines the skills and knowledge to add value to her clients’ businesses at a variety of levels. Tanya is a member of the Institute of Directors, she has a BA, a Certificate In Small Business Management and Money Management and has taught Small Business Management to entrepreneurs. Tanya is accredited in Career Development and Psychometric profiling and is completing her Post Graduate Diploma in Human Resources.
