Heather Ware has recently jumped into The Pond, bringing her significant expertise in national and international Marketing, and a career delivering business growth alongside creatives and innovative teams.
"It was a no brainer joining The Pond, with it's strong, niche reputation in marketing freelance, contract, and full-time positions. The Pond has 150 of NZ's best digital, design, advertising, media, production, and specialist agencies as well as many of Aotearoa's innovative clients."
This is the space Heather has lived, breathed and loves. She's been behind launches and rebrands as varied as Te Papa to TSB, Snapper smart card to the Z Energy rebrand and launching several kiwi export companies including Oi Organic Initiative and Cervena venison. She founded Oystercatchers NZ which uses marketing and creative flair to grow businesses making positive social impact.
Heather's an advocate for having the right people, in the right job with the right team before great things can happen. And with a tighter market for talent this has become even more essential for success.
“The Pond know how to help clients find the right candidates, while they focus on their own businesses. We go the extra distance to for every brief that comes through the door, plus we help creative, digital and marketing professionals find rewarding work, realise their market value, and achieve their overall career goals.”
Outside work, Heather makes the most of Auckland beautiful beaches where she walks, swims and swings a golf club at a nearby course. She and her husband Mark love family, friends, travelling and watching live sport. Heather's rapt to be able to visit her son and daughter, both in Aussie, now the borders have reopened, and is naturally the number one fan of "Xela the artist" - her daughter.
If you're after a genuine, wise, astute and pragmatic consultant who'll take the time to understand your needs and then works fast and hard to get the right people for your team, then contact Heather.

No doubt, we're seeing talent continue to take off with the borders open, but since starting at The Pond I've also seen plenty of talented people return to New Zealand for family, friends and a balanced lifestyle.
