After putting in my CV for a number of positions which resulted in a long wait then an email saying that my application was not successful, I researched a number of professional CV writing companies and selected Recruit NZ. Firstly the response was immediate and it was by Tanya Gray the Managing Director, secondary the company offers much more than just fixing up your CV.
The result was seen immediately the very next job application resulted in making the final few selected for a face to face interview.
Hi Tanya , thanks …i do appreciate your efforts on my behalf.
I have found it a very enlightening experience getting the right characteristics on paper and your help has made the job of doing that a breeze.
I will keep you posted on the job front and yes it is an adventure that i am looking forward to achieving. I will be sure to advise any colleagues with similar aspirations to be in touch with you for your professional services. Kind Regards Pete.
I was very happy with the service and professionalism of the NZ Recruit team.
I didn’t know where to start in writing my experience and qualifications from The New Zealand Defence Force. Highly recommended and also very useful for a person who is leaving Government paid roles and transferring into a private sector role.
Thank you to the team at Recruit NZ for helping me with my CV and interview questions.
You did a fabulous job with my CV and asked appropriate questions, gave advice and tailored the CV perfectly. I am thrilled how the CV looks and reads.
It was great meeting Tanya and going over typical interview questions, she gave me advice how to answer the questions; I started to feel comfortable understanding how an interview process would be conducted and felt very confident that I was on my way to secure a perfect job.
It only took a week after receiving my CV from Recruit NZ to applying for a position and then being offered a job that was perfect for me.
Thanks for all the help and encouragement that the team at Recruit NZ provided.
I would definitely recommend anyone to use Recruit NZ – many thanks.
I requested my CV to be updated, it was very quick and easy process. Tanya was very quick to email with any questions that I had. When updating my CV the consultant was easy to talk to and very quick.
I highly recommend them as they are professional and easy to work with.
Thank you Recruit NZ!

I would like to say the service that I have received from Recruit NZ has been second to none.
They took the time to discuss with me what type of job I was looking for and they then created a very strong CV for me based on my experience and skills.

I decided to call in the services of Tanya, as I needed a professional CV. Well from the moment I chatted to Tanya, I found her very professional and she made me feel at ease. She kept me informed at all times and gave me sound advice.

I have told all my friends about her professionalism, honesty and compassion and delivery of a great CV which makes me far more marketable.

AS A CANDIDATE
As a candidate, the process of applying for positions can be a minefield as you try to match your skill set and values with available positions. I was also looking at roles over the Christmas period while many recruiters are away when I saw a role of interest from Recruit NZ. I applied and I received immediate notification that my application had been accepted and within the week, I had my first contact with Amy from the agency.
Amy was so easy to talk to as she discussed my suitability and was true to her word when she escalated my application to Rose for the next stage of the process. I then had my first video interview before meeting the company’s Managing Director. The follow-up, as a candidate, from Recruit NZ cannot be faulted. The people I spoke with in the team ensured I knew what to expect in my interview and put any nerves to rest. Immediately after my interview, they were on the phone to follow up on how it went and give me feedback as she had already spoken with my future employer.
Prior to being invited back to my second interview, we talked at length about the values of the company to ensure they matched what I was after as they understood the importance of this to me. We also talked about my future development within the company so I could see the growth and opportunities which have proven to be spot on. I was provided with the company’s core values, the position description and a company overview so when I was offered the position, I knew I really wanted the position without hesitation. The follow up continued until a few weeks after my commencement to ensure all the employment paperwork was completed, the induction was going smooth and I was happy.
AS A EMPLOYER
Less than five months later after starting my new position, I was then asked to fill a role we had available in our Sales Support team. This time I could see how Recruit NZ worked from the other side of the desk.
The advert was placed with consideration to ensure it was on the front page of the online employment site. All candidates were given due consideration and screened before being passed on to us to view. When we asked to interview any of the candidates, appointments were confirmed within the hour and the follow up after meeting the candidates was as expected – immediate.
We were able to bounce any concerns off the Recruit NZ team and the overview of the candidate provided was so insightful. Prior to any second interviews reference checks were completed and provided in a very timely manner.
After having worked with Recruit NZ as both a candidate and an employer, I can’t find any fault. The speed of the follow up, the transparency in our interaction I had, the support in both situations was very professional. The end result has been for me, very positive. Not only did I gain employment in a great company, I have received a promotion, as predicated with still loads of opportunity, and most importantly our values are matched. We are also very excited about the new staff member starting with us soon.
