PN Personnel are experts in recruitment. We treat you like the individual you are to find the job which suits your motivations, aspirations and skills.

Our point of difference

We are known for our people. We are also known for partnering with the best job seekers and employers. Our team love what we do and strive to find you a job you love. My recruiters are handpicked based on their skills, positive attitude and enthusiasm for our profession. We’re the largest recruitment team in town, with over 120+ years of experience recruiting in the Manawatu.

Professional Communication:

We welcome you to research us, ask around. We pride ourselves on our professionalism and outstanding reputation.  As your recruiter we are the middleperson between yourself and the employer.  We don’t shy away from the tough conversations; we work to meet the best interests of you as a job seeker and the employer. We achieve this by honest communication and a commitment to following through and providing constructive feedback.


We qualify our employers.

We verify our job opportunities to ensure they are authentic.

We work with you through all steps of the recruitment process.

We negotiate on your behalf and celebrate your successes.

We follow up, you are more than just a number, you are an individual.

My team have all successfully completed our industry Code of Conduct and we uphold these values, continually upskilling so we are confident we are utilising best recruitment practices.


We know what employers are looking for.  It may be they require a certain skillset, or they may be wanting the right attitude and aptitude to complete their team. Even if we don’t have a current vacancy listed which matches your skill set, it’s worth a chat.  Employers know we work with talented individuals; we can open doors you may never have thought existed.

We don’t just forward your CV; we always discuss a job opportunity with you before passing on any of your details to ensure we are acting in your best interests.  Like I said, not all recruitment agencies are the same.  We’re passionate to positively impact on people’s lives (yours) and make the regions a better place (we love the Manawatu).

Let us take care of your job search, talk to my team at PN Personnel.
