Recruitment Specialist - wanting diversity and variety?

Location : Filled Vacancies | Listed : Wednesday, 26 April | Type : Permanent + Full-time

Palmerston North Personnel are regional recruitment specialists. Our clients come back to us because our team are professional, easy to work with, have their finger on the pulse of the Manawatu employment market, and use modern tools/resources.

  • Locally owned and operated for more than 20 years = security and mentoring
  • Cloud based tools, social recruitment and team mentoring/support = tools of the job
  • Diverse roles and industries = varied and interesting work every day

About Us and Our Team

Palmerston North Personnel is an established professional business with proven support tools and infrastructure to facilitate individual and organisational success. We have:

  • An established Recruitment Brand with a deep and expanding social reach
  • A strong reputation for employment brand promotion
  • BIG DATA – established information to manage employers, job seekers and relationships with decision-makers, influencers and hiring managers
  • Cloud-based recruitment and administrative tools
  • A cohesive and supportive team (internal referrals and support are a daily occurrence)

Our Recruitment Specialists are agile enough to wear multiple hats each day, as they regularly move between changing demands e.g. solve urgent temporary needs, then consult with an employer navigating a changing permanent market, then negotiate a job offer between an employer and employee. All before morning tea!

As a diverse team, we are able to match our Recruitment Specialists’ backgrounds and experiences to our clients, and support areas of speciality within our varied market.

We are looking for our next recruiting specialist:

As an experienced recruiter you know the ropes, but may be missing challenge and variety in your current role – you’ll get that in spades here!

Missing the double fist pump moment of walking out of a meeting having won a new client or opportunity to recruit? Or missing the support of a team that celebrates your successes with you? We do that every day!

Are you pigeon-holed as a Temporary Consultant or Permanent Consultant but want to branch into both? Look no further - we can offer that now!

What we’ll be looking for:

  • Examples – as an experienced recruiter / consultant / account manager we’ll be looking for examples of your knowledge / results
  • Passion – our team are passionate and we’re looking for someone as passionate as we are
  • Relationship builder – you’ll meet some employers who have not had an easy time recruiting - you need to build rapport, earn their trust and solve their problems
  • Successes – yes, we want to attract and retain successful people, so we will want evidence of your past successes
  • Energy and resilience – sure you’ll hit bumps – successful recruiters drive over them or go round them
  • Commitment – Palmerston North Personnel are committed to delivering professional recruitment services to employers who value professional relationships – we want a new team member who values that goal, our team and our clients as much as we do

What’s in it for you?

  • An environment committed to making you feel truly valued and appreciated
  • Uncapped earning potential
  • All the tools you need to get the job done
  • An energetic and supportive team, management and owners
  • FUN – we celebrate with our employers and candidates (and we do team events like no-one else!). See
  • The chance to make a difference in your own style and/or area of speciality
  • The opportunity to learn from a team doing things other recruiters don’t!

Not from Manawatu and wonder why you should live, work, play and recruit in the best region in NZ?
