Meet Apii Jack, General Manager for ERG


I have always loved meeting people, knowing who they are, where they are from, so my career step into recruitment was a natural progression for me. Of course some people would call it “nosey” but I’m seriously interested in who you are when I meet you!


Fast forward 20yrs and nothing has changed, which is why I still love my job because it’s all about connecting quality candidates with quality employers and effecting positive change to a business and an individual’s life.

Recruiting is not a job, it is a privilege.


Apii has over 10 years in the Recruitment industry and has worked across Key account Management, Business development and Staff management. Her style is consultative and one of real interest in the business that she works alongside while supplying quality and engaged staff. 


Having managed teams of anywhere between 3 to 60 staff in her past work history, in different roles and industries, she always managed to get the best out of the staff by sticking to her core philosophies  of respect, empowerment, empathy, an open listening ear and firm but fair supportive direction.

Branding, web design & photography

Branding, web design & photography

Hi, I’m Lori of Lola Media Design and I am excited to be a recommended provider for The Engine!

I have been designing custom brands and building bespoke websites since 2002. In the last 10 years, I have been inspired to put my iMac to sleep and leave my desk to meet my clients in person, photographing them and their products and services for their website and social media. This customised and integrated approach has led to creating many unique and authentic brands on my client list. In fact, authenticity is something I value highly and it is your brand’s superpower!

I operate out of my studio office in Warkworth. I have grown a small team to help support you smoothly and efficiently from the idea stage, through the design stage and finally to the published ‘live’ stage – where your website and brand is the main ‘engine’ of your business and I treat it like I treat my own site – which is as a valuable and critical business resource and asset.

Have you got your brand foundations in place?

My Business Secret Weapon!

Lori from Lola Media is my business secret weapon – it’s so much easier going to one provider for all my tech and visuals. It’s a streamlined approach that saves me both money and time as everything needed is in-house. Photography, video and web design in a seamless experience for all my marketing needs.

 Professionalism, Quality, Value

Working with Lori has been a game-changer for Andrea and I (Hormone Empowerment). She really listened to us and got our branding spot on. The website and the handouts were even better than we expected – just stunning! She put in so much work and went over and above what we imagined. She has guided us along the way as we were learning ourselves having just started out. It has been a pleasure working with Lori.
