We have worked with Recruit NZ for several years, and utilised both their National and Migration recruitment services, as well as having used their sister companies Consulting HQ and VisaAide services. Melissa has been my main point of contact for many recruitment processes, and we have developed a strong working relationship, where I feel that she understands our business and genuinely cares about the impact each new hire will have on our business. After working with Melissa to assess the suitability of several candidates from overseas, we have engaged Recruit NZ’s services to hire from the Philippines for skill shortages that are hard to fill in our region. We are excited to be growing our company with local and international talent, with Recruit NZ as our partner.
Recruit NZ was recommended to Unex Systems by a local business. Our business was growing and looking to hire a few key roles, some which were new to our business. Recruit NZ took the time to really get to know our business and our existing team. They then helped us shape the roles, and managed the recruitment process professionally from end to end. My key recruiter has been Melissa, and recently we have extended our relationship from just recruiting locally for key roles, to trusting Recruit NZ to find us skilled team members from overseas when local candidates are not available. I have found the standard of process, communication, and ultimately the end result in hiring top talent has been very pleasing.
My experience with RecruitNZ started in April 2017, giving me the privilege of working with consultant Rose Haines.
Being on the employment hunt can be a very nervous time, which can carry its fair share of rejection.
With Rose’s professional, confident, friendly and easy going manner, the process was made less fearful.
What I found valuable, was she kept her finger on the pulse during the whole process. With her ongoing contact, I was made to feel important and a high priority.
During our first phone calls, I found Rose to have strong rapport building skills. Not just asking profession based questions, but also wanting to learn about me as a person. Clearly having done her research on the firm, the knowledge she was able to pass on helped me in the decision making process.
It’s been a pleasure working with Rose and I recommend Recruit NZ to any Employer.
We have been working with Recruit NZ for over 4 years now.
The team is great to work with and we know that they will consistently find the right fit of candidates for our company.
I really appreciate the way they follow up after the new recruit has started to see that both the employer and employee are satisfied.
We also use their HR Consulting division which is invaluable both for us as business owners and the staff.”
We have used RecruitNZ to recruit a number of key positions in our company.
We have always found Rose Haines professional and easy to work with. Feedback from the candidates about Rose and the process, once they are on board, has been great also.
They take the hassle out of recruiting staff and the follow up we get from Rose is awesome,
asking how team members are going that have been with us for a number of years. This shows they don’t just fill a position and forget about it. They are there as a support through any challenges we faced during the process.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Tanya and the team. Great company, great people.
I know that by the time I meet short listed candidates that they will fit into my team…
Even when you are really experienced in selection, recruitment and HR… at times it is not optimal to recruit your own team members. Like many business owners, when it comes to recruiting for my own team, I want to tell the potential new-comer all the great reasons for joining my team, especially if I quickly warm to them. Interview bias is certainly something that I can become susceptible to.
It is for these reasons that I have used Tanya to recruit two of my top performers and will continue to use her going forward. Tanya is completely thorough and objective in her approach, she knows my business and me extremely well and she knows what to ask when it comes to meeting candidates or undertaking references. I know that by the time I meet short listed candidates that they will fit into my team. I trust Tanya implicitly when making hiring decisions for my team.
I highly recommend Tanya, she is an astute business woman who understands the needs and challenges of other business owners.
She has a real passion to support small business owners and I’m not sure what I did before working with her…
Tanya has worked with me to create my recruitment plan, all the documents I need to recruit well and supported me through the process of recruitment for my company. I found her extremely competent, very creative and brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the table. She has a real passion to support small business owners and I’m not sure what I did before working with her. I certainly refer her to anyone who needs a great recruitment company. Thanks Tanya.
Her selection of the candidate was superb and she understood the needs of our business fully…
Tanya Gray has recently found a candidate to join our real estate sales team at LJ Hooker Ponsonby, her selection of the candidate was superb and she understood the needs of our business fully. I find Tanya to be extremely diligent, with excellent follow up, very professional, hardworking and organised. We would certainly use her services again and would not hesitate in recommending her services to anyone else.
Tanya is professional, helpful, punctual and has a very good perception of people, therefore matching the right people up to the right jobs…
Tanya doesn’t muck around at getting a job done and took the task of seeking 3 nationwide reps for my business with great enthusiasm. Tanya is professional, helpful, punctual and has a very good perception of people, therefore matching the right people up to the right jobs. She has also given me great support and valuable advice along the way.
When I met Tanya I knew she was going to be fabulous as she walks the talk.
Having Tanya do our recruiting has been an easy experience and she understands what kind of person I want. There is no mucking around. I love the follow up and the report system and processes Recruit NZ have in place. It showed me that the level of professionalism the team at Recruit NZ has is so high and the level to find the right staff member is so high. I was blown away on the level of service I received.
I don’t know why more companies don’t do this – it took the pain out of recruitment for me so I could focus on running my business so saved me time and money and knowing that the team at Recruit NZ really do care was truly fantastic!
You can trust that the team at Recruit NZ keeps your company’s interests in mind throughout all the stages of the recruitment process and they are always available when you need them.
Thank you Tanya and the team at Recruit NZ for finding us such a great person. I have just had a fantastic few days spending time with our new Wellington Manager here at the Auckland Office (for some training and getting to know her). Have thoroughly enjoyed spending the time with her and am absolutely confident that she will be even better than we could have hoped for!
Tanya has an amazing wealth of knowledge in her industry and was a huge benefit to me in this stressful time…
I am the owner of a Hairdressing Salon which has been in the family for some 35 years. It is a small suburban salon with myself and 1 senior hairdresser working in the business, after 8.5 years my senior stylist decided to leave. Not having to have dealt with having to employ staff for some time it became obvious that I was out of my depth, (great hairdresser hopeless in recruiting).
Having had Tanya as a client, I called her in a panic, she met with me immediately she could hear the panic in my voice, and took over asking several questions where upon I answered no to most of them, do I have an employment contract, do I have a description of the vacant job, do I have the advertising in place and if so where and so on and so on.
As I am a small business and do not have the excess funds to spend on recruitment, Tanya was upfront and discussed my cost options. I decided to use Recruit NZ’s unbundled service as opposed to end to end recruitment to save on the costs. Tanya created an advertisement, she listed it for me in all the right places, monitored it on a weekly basis, and assisted in creating the necessary Employment Agreements, Letter of Offer and all other relevant documentation required to employ staff in today’s environment.
Tanya was unbelievable, she kept me updated, constantly checking everything was going ok, and even when I got a bit down because the right person seemed hard to find, she explained the process to me again, assuring me that it was normal. Tanya has an amazing wealth of knowledge in her industry and was a huge benefit to me in this stressful time. Knowing that you had someone like Tanya there supporting you and sending through all the right information is hugely important.
I wouldn’t hesitate to use her again, in fact I would recommend that all small businesses make it part of their business plan to book a meeting with Tanya once or twice a year to go over any changes that we would need to know about, ensuring that we have all the right documentation and rules updated for employing staff.
Thanks so much Tanya for all your support.
