About Gerard Hansen

Gerard Hansen has been NTA’s Recruitment Consultant since 2016 and in that time has placed hundreds of graduates into employment, mainly in the dairy industry but also in many other fields.

Gerard  graduated as a Licensed Immigration Adviser from Toi-Ohomai with a Graduate Diploma in New Zealand Immigration Advice (Level 7).  Gerard also holds a Business Management Diploma and various Recruitment Qualifications.

In April 2023 Gerard established his own company "Alpine Immigration & Recruitment NZ and now offers the same service and level of standards he applied with NTA.

Experienced, personable, and supportive, Gerard has a long history of working to achieve a positive outcome for all parties.


I have dealt with Gerard for over 4 years now and find him brilliant to deal with. I’m a farmer on multiple fronts in our family business and don’t have time for staffing leads that don’t go anywhere. We have found Gerard to get straight to the point where employees coming for a job interview Gerard quickly determines whether or not they are a compatible match in our business, he’s honest and has no trouble bringing issues up. We enjoy working with Gerard and look forward to the years to come.

I have been dealing with the National Trade Academy (NTA) since June 2018 and in particular Gerard Hanson. We have now had 5 employees through NTA working on our dairy farm and there is a reason why we keep going back when needing staff. They come to the farm with a good basic knowledge of farm skills and most importantly they come with the ability to learn. I recommend NTA to any prospective employer.
