About JOYN: HR Support & Recruitment Experts

About Us

JOYN is not a recruitment agency, although that is how our story began. Our founders launched Rice Consulting in Auckland in 2009 which specialised in recruiting for the HR & Recruitment industries.









By 2012, it had become apparent that more people than ever were looking to work in more flexible and non-traditional ways, including those in the Human Resources & Recruitment sector themselves.

By then, technology had caught up to the point where most had the tools at their disposal to deliver their expertise remotely and virtually. When a large NZ company needed 10 recruiters on hourly pay rates on short notice, we were able to deliver. Using those recruiters, the company could run a significant assessment centre project. And so, Virtual Recruitment Process Outsourcing was born.

In 2015, v.RPO opened in Christchurch, and then the following year in Wellington, experiencing rapid growth along the way.
After years of refining the model, and witnessing the cost-savings and results delivered to an increasing client base, in 2017 we renamed the business JOYN.

By adding some technological smarts to the existing human-powered model, we can deliver the same outstanding results at a fraction of the cost. Beyond that, we can offer more control and visibility for freelancers and clients along the way.
