About SVA

Leading New Zealand Recruiter

SVA (Susie Vokins Associates) was cultivated from close to three decades of international recruitment. In her day, Susie Vokins became the leading contract banking finance recruiter for Michael Page in London. Like many, she married a Kiwi and moved to New Zealand, helping establish Robert Walters Associates.

Following on from this, she co-founded an international recruitment business and now focuses her energy on SVA and the audit and accounting industry.
