Armourguard - Saving Time and Multi-Media

We recently used Christine and the team from Palmerston North Personnel, and it has been a great result.

Our new sales specialist is learning just how much more there is to our industry than expected, but is already getting wins on the board.

Palmerston North Personnel took us through a new recruitment process that made us query some of the things we had always done. Palmerston North Personnel even used an Armourguard video to help show what a day in the life of Armourguard was like.

Rather than managing 20 unsuitable applications a day, it was great being presented a shortlist of genuine possible employees, and then interviewing the best of the bunch!

I am very busy, so I appreciated the huge time savings by using Christine, and the great result

Toyota New Zealand has a busy modern warehouse and we use Temporary Employees to manage high workloads to support our Permanent Employees. It’s really effective with Cushla screening high numbers of good people to get down to the “superstars” all while we carry on working – it's quick, reduces our downtime and is efficient.

In May 2016 Enable New Zealand contacted Palmerston North Personnel when we secured an additional contract providing services across New Zealand. We urgently needed 6x Customer Service Facilitators for a 6 month fixed-term to work on our Hearing Aid Management Service starting in July!

“We interviewed and employed people who are just like our current team – they have natural empathy and feel the intrinsic rewards of providing support services for less fortunate people.”

Cushla found a team of customer-focused people for a 6 month fixed-term that have the ability, motivation, commitment and “the fit” we look for in permanent employees – I really didn’t expect that!

The team from Palmerston North Personnel made the process simple and easy.

We needed a recruiter who would listen and understand what we wanted, what we needed and why. We have had past experiences with other recruiters where we felt like they were trying to make a sale to earn a commission.

Working with Palmerston North Personnel wasn’t like that – they listened to the overview of what we wanted, then drilled down to finer detail to understand what we actually look for. The team was brilliant at this – they listened, and confirmed they genuinely understood by clarifying areas that were unclear asking really simple questions like “what did you mean when by saying…”

The Palmerston North Personnel team was able to look at what we thought our dream person was, understand why we wanted that type of person and then compared our wants vs our needs. Unlike other recruiters we’ve encountered, they were able to offer us good alternatives. When sharing these alternative people, they confidently presented the pros and cons of each person against our dream person so we could make informed choices – this made us confident in Palmerston North Personnel’s recruitment process.

Palmerston North Personnel connected with us as we were managing a difficult employment situation, and by discussing this with management at Palmerston North Personnel, we were reassured that we were well managed and we were dealing with a knowledgeable professional team.

Palmerston North Personnel really take the time to learn and understand how we work and our specific environment. They really go beyond just sending us a person for a job - the welfare of the individual who accepts the role is well considered throughout the recruitment process too.

Ultimately the recruitment was a pleasant experience and I happily recommend Palmerston North Personnel to other businesses.

Palmerston North Personnel has provided short and longer term temporary staff cover several times to NZX Agri over the past few years. I've always been impressed by the high quality candidates put forward for all these roles and we've often employed the successful applicant on a permanent contract following the temporary cover period.

I'd have no hesitation in recommending Palmerston North Personnel to other employers looking for staff. The company offers a fast, efficient and high quality service.

A big thank you to Robyn Bills for the temp that she has arranged for our company. He is a brilliant worker and a great fit for PDM (Peter Day Motors).

This is the first time in 30 years in business that we have used an employment agency and Robyn has made it very easy.

Highly recommended.

Our firm has worked with Palmerston North Personnel to find short term contractors a number of times over the last few years and have found their service to be excellent.

I have learned that it is invaluable to use their pool of already screened and considered candidates and especially for short term staff, the extra cost of using their service more than pays for itself in terms of not having to engage in employment law contracts and the ease of managing the relationship with the contractor. Not to mention no PAYE and administration costs!

Christine has been wonderful to work with and is always professional and cheerful. In our last engagement we had the occasion to find Christine out of the office - an email to her colleague had our needs sorted and a contractor in place within a couple of hours.

The candidates we have worked with from Palmerston North Personnel have done a great job for us and have been very well suited to the position.

Palmerston North Personnel have always sorted our needs and been hassle free to work with and I would recommend them to anyone.

We find “temping” works for our business. While we find the “temps” have enjoyed their roles we benefit from quickly filling staff shortages and have even kept some as permanent employees.

Christine has saved us the downtime in searching and has found some good people for us – it works! That’s why we come back.

Palmerston North Personnel provided us a temporary employee as a minute taker and they were really good, The Temporary Employee drove from Wanganui and took the minutes for our meeting in New Plymouth. This particular meeting is often difficult to take minutes for. The really pleasing thing was their minutes were delivered quickly and were really good quality.

I think you did very well at short notice and I believe Christine solved our problem quickly - in about 24 hours from memory. This was a big relief!

This took a big load off me during a time I have a busy workload and really saved me time!

By having the New Plymouth meeting covered it free-ed me up for other projects. Going from Palmerston North to New Plymouth is an entire day when I am busy planning award nights.

When we needed someone to quickly fill a vacancy in our finance team, Palmerston North Personnel came straight to mind. Within a very short space of time, Christine found us the perfect candidate. We have been so happy with our ‘temp’, that she is now working for us permanently and has become a valuable member of our team.

The service from Palmerston North Personnel has been excellent for both my new colleague and myself as the employer. Christine is extremely professional and helpful and it was a lovely surprise to have morning tea delivered when the contract was complete.

I would definitely use Palmerston North Personnel again.

After unsuccessfully recruiting a role from Australia I contacted Palmerston North Personnel.

Palmerston North Personnel were the only Recruitment Specialists to contact me within 24 hours, gain a full understanding of what was now a dire situation and urgent requirements. Palmerston North Personnel quickly relaunched our recruitment campaign, and as a result, we successfully hired in 3 weeks.

Overall the attention and follow up from Palmerston North Personnel was outstanding, they are the only recruiter we will be using in the Manawatu area from now on!

When our HR Advisor left us in April this year Palmerston North Personnel was recommended by a Senior Consultant in Auckland. My first point of contact was with the Client Manager at Palmerston North Personnel who asked all the key questions and then directed me to Christine.

The process from start to finish has been seamless, professional and well supported by everyone I have had contact with. 

The Client Manager was well informed, knew the right questions to ask at the right time and came up with good outcomes.

Christine with whom I have had the most contact had a selection of candidates, recommending 2 that would meet the criteria I had set. We were unsure whether we wanted a "temp" vs a "contractor" and Christine and I worked through this with ease. We selected our contractor who started with us on 3 April (4 days after our initial communication with Palmerston North Personnel) and who I am delighted to say has agreed to stay with us permanently. So thank you all in finding a gem. The experience has been painless and the quality consistent.
