Who we are:

Heidi Ullrich,  Director

RM, BSN, Dip Nursing, MRSCA

I am the company director of PureNZ Recruitment Ltd.  Early in my career I worked as an oncology nurse in Australia until returning to New Zealand to further my studies in midwifery.   This led to the establishment of my own midwifery practice, which continued until I travelled to Europe, USA, and the UK where I furthered my midwifery career as a foetal cardiology specialist.   

This gave me insight into the public and private health sectors in Australia, New Zealand, and the UK which in turn enabled me to transition into healthcare recruitment.

During my recruitment career spanning over 10 years, I have established myself as a specialist recruiter in inbound and outbound recruitment servicing employment markets such as NZ, Canada, USA, UK, Australia, and the Middle East. 

Work life balance is a must for me and I love to spend time with my husband and three gorgeous girls.   If we are not at the cafe having a fluffy (kiddie hot chocolate) then we are at the beach enjoying the sun, surf and sand!

Our Values:

Integrity and respect: we treat our relationships with the utmost honesty - it's at the heart of what we do.

Results focused:we are committed to delivering a comprehensive service, developing trusted partnerships with our candidates and clients to achieve positive results.

Passion and drive: we apply ourselves with energy, passion and persistence to achieve our goals

Innovative: through creative and innovative thinking we are able to turn our goals into reality.


"My partner and I have always wanted to live and work in New Zealand and finally started to get the process underway last year.

The thought of starting to search for jobs and applying for visas all became quite daunting. I am a registered nurse in the U.K and needed to have a job offer before the visa application process could begin. I searched for recruitment companies in New Zealand as I felt I needed some help.

I sent an e-mail to Heidi at Pure NZ Recruitment and got a response the following day. The job process then began and I felt I had to do very little. I felt myself and Heidi built up a good relationship along the way and found her so helpful throughout. She kept me informed every step of the way and I felt I could ask her anything at any time, I would always receive responses very quickly with all the information I needed and more! 

It felt like a huge pressure was taken off knowing that Heidi was conducting the job searches for me. She knew exactly the type of area I wanted to work and arranged interviews for me and sent all information about the job prior to interviews. (I even received phone calls wishing me good luck prior to the interviews.)

Within a couple of months a job and start date had been secured. It was in the area in which we wanted to move to and within the specialty I wanted to work.

I always had everything I needed and was more than pleased with the service. It was so nice to finally meet Heidi when she offered to pick us up from Auckland airport when we arrived. She even had a pack with useful bits of information for us.

I would thoroughly recommend her to anybody job searching, it was a huge stress relief for us and I felt like I had an overseas friend sorting out everything for me.

I have been in New Zealand for a few months now and have spoken to Heidi several times as she has been interested in how we are getting on and making sure we are all good. I’ve been working in the job for 2 months and I love it!"
