Tony Cutting - Consultant/Coach/Digital Marketing (January 2010 to present)

In most recent years I have enjoyed working as a personal coach with a range of clients from CEO's to teenagers lookng at career choices.  I have also used my knowledge in digital marketing to create marketplaces for clients as well as work with them to ensure thye have a robust digital markeitng strategy in place.

As well as my servcies above, Cutting Consultants provides a range of consulting services based on my business exerience, recruitment & talent management background, training and coaching backgrounds.  I have also developed strong technical knowledge gained over the last 16 years with my business PeopleNet.

Most recent major clients have included The Treasury, Ministry of Social Development, Department of Internal Affairs, Ministry of Education, Ngati Toa Rangatira and many smaller businesses and individuals I am involved with as a career or business coach.

PeopleNet - Owner (December 1999 to present)

I designed a talent pool system in the late 90's to help organisations to recruit and manage their talent. JobCafe is our public system which we use on a daily basis with our consulting business, and which is used by a number of our clients. Weta Workshop has licenced a copy of our software for use in their own private talent pool.

PeopleNet has other web based projects including but not limited to Kapiti Now, Kapiti Sport, The Kumara Vine and many small to medium web baed projects for clients.

TalentPoint - Owner/Partner (January 2005 - December 2009)

I established TalentPoint as New Zealand's first RPO and talent management consulting business and then brought on a partner due to our rapid growth $0- to $6.5million contract sales in 18 months. In 2009 my partner wanted to move our business into a recruitment agency which I was not keen on. We came to an agreement where he brought out my shareholding and I moved on to other business interests (JobCafe, PeopleNet & Cutting Consulting).

Spherion Recruitment - National Manager (January 2002 - December 2004)

I was approached by an ex colleague of mine to look at a national role with this large Australian based recruitment business for a 18 month contract until they could find someone who would do the role permanently. I stayed a little longer to help with the transition when the business was sold to another major Australian Recruitment organisation. I enjoyed this assignment which included significant change management as the opeartions moved to the 'Julia Ross' group of companies.

1993 -1999

Recruitment and Talent Management roles ranging from consultant to regional management for organisations which included Andersen Consulting, Doughty Group and Manpower.


New Zealand Post Office and NZ Post. Various positions working my way through this large national organisation from District Post Office duties across the entire operation to Manager, Daily Accounting, head office and finally lead project manager for transition from manual daily accounts to a new computerised system. This is where I took my Accounting background and moved into Information Technology..
