Patrick Kirkland

General Manager


I was born in the deep south with my recruitment journey starting in Hong Kong back in 2013.  After joining the Franklin Smith Christchurch trades team in 2018 I helped grow our migrant labour supply model and trades recruitment into the offerings that we have today. I now live in Auckland with my beautiful family. Outside of work I love sports, am a tragic supporter of the Warriors and Southland Stags, enjoy travelling, and have a keen interest in horse racing.
