Ash Profile


Talent Agent

Call 022 3912235

Ashan is the latest addition to the corporate side of The Pond, originally from Sri Lanka he is enjoying all New Zealand has to offer. In a previous life, Ashan studied Law and then went onto obtain his masters in business but eventually found his way into recruitment and hasn’t looked back since.

Ashan is great at communication, organised “What I love about recruitment is the interaction with people and being part of helping them to find the perfect role” Ashan says.

“Working in the creative side of recruitment is great – I’ve worked in recruitment for different industries but I love seeing the creative process and all the amazing work produced”

“The Pond’s work environment really reflects the industry it represents, it’s in a great space and you feel like you are part of something special.”

In his spare time, Ashan likes to spend time with friends and try his hand at the ukulele.
