Amy Prebble is the CEO and founder of Getaflex.
Launched in 2018, Getaflex is a NZ-grown job platform providing flexible work for all professionals.

The platform is being supported by leading partner employers including Vodafone, ANZ, Aurecon, Transpower, The University of Auckland and The Treasury.
Amy is a Cambridge graduate and former New Zealand diplomat, who served overseas in Canberra and Paris. She spent two years as Private Secretary to then Foreign Minister, Phil Goff. She also ran a consulting business focused on international policy and strategy projects.
Amy became passionate about quality part-time and flexible work when she became a mother of three children. She was astounded by the lack of advertised job opportunities for professional workers like herself to advance a career and raise a family. As she began researching flexible work, it quickly became clear that New Zealand’s workforce was changing, and many people wanted to work outside the traditional office-bound, 9-to-5 working week. Getaflex was founded in response to this demand, with the goal to build New Zealand’s flexible job market, and create an ‘on-ramp’ for professional job-seekers into quality flexible work.
