Kauri Healthcare

We have been partnering with PN Personnel for a number of years now to recruit temporary and permanent staff for our team at Kauri Healthcare.

The service I have received has been excellent, they listen to my requirements and quickly get an understanding of both the company and type of person we are looking for, the end result to date has been very successful

Recently we engaged with the team at PN Personnel to find us a new Chief Executive Officer. This was a pivotal role for our business and due to their recent history with us, years of recruitment experience and local and national networks there was only one choice for us who to partner with.

The process was very professional and ran smoothly. The communication with Cushla was excellent throughout the recruit, she gave us regular updates and feedback from the market.

We had a time frame to work to which was agreed at the job brief meeting and we were presented an excellent shortlist of very suitable and qualified candidates in our timeframe. PN Personnel even provided their boardroom for us to hold all interviews in which was very helpful.

We are extremely happy with the candidate we have selected and would highly recommend the team at PN Personnel for any recruitment requirements you have.

We have engaged the services of PN Personnel for several positions throughout our company and have always been very impressed with the high quality of the candidates they supply.

The relationship we have with our recruitment specialist is excellent and they are always on site visiting myself and their temporary workers onsite.

I would highly recommend PN Personnel to any business looking for staff and find them reactive, positive and highly professional to deal with.

We have been working with Christine at Palmerston North Personnel for some time now – because Christine knows what we want she looks after us very well.

Christine has kept getting it “bang on”. If Christine send us someone for a Temporary role it’s about 98% certain we will hire them. We have often taken the Temporary Employees onto Permanent roles.

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.

I’m happy to talk about Palmerston North Personnel’s service – I am really happy with the quality service from Robyn.

Palmerston North Personnel provided us with very high quality people to choose from – this really stood out. Not only was the skill level high, so was the work ethic of the people Palmerston North Personnel presented to us.

Robyn has taken away the hassle of finding quality staff at short notice – it was all taken care of – no lost time sourcing people and just no pressure!

Enable New Zealand

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!

Manawatu Golf Club

Manawatu Golf Club

The Manawatu Golf Club recently engaged the services of Palmerston North Personnel, to find a replacement for our departing GM.

Right from our initial meeting with Matt Smout, we were impressed with the professionalism shown.

This carried on when Cushla Brasell took over.   We were kept fully informed throughout the entire process, and Cushla was freely available to answer our queries.

Cushla narrowed the large field down to two outstanding applicants, for interviewing by the Golf Club Panel, one of whom has accepted the position.

We would have no hesitation in using Palmerston North Personnel again in the future.

Our recent experience working with the team at PN Personnel made recruitment far less disruptive to our business than we initially imagined.  Finding the right candidate for a very senior role in our business was critical and we couldn’t be happier with both the process and the outcome.

It was my first time using PN Personnel and we have been thoroughly impressed with the way the team has managed to find us a fixed-term maternity leave cover in such a short space of time.

Robyn delivered on her promises with the quality of all candidates that were presented for the role being just what we were after.

If the need to arose again, we would happily work with your team again.

We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending the services of PN Personnel and have in fact done so on many occasions. We have always found their service to be professional and personable.

We have used PN Personnel for all of our permanent and temporary employment placements for over 20 years and have found PN Personnel have always ensured a comprehensive understanding of our needs was reached in order to enable the best possible candidates to be put forward for us to consider.

In addition, we have found it invaluable that they have a thorough understanding of our team culture and environment and that enables them to present not only the best qualified candidates for our roles but also those with the best personality fit for our team.

PN Personnel have supported our business in a number of ways; sourcing temporary and permanent staff from administration through to senior management roles, supporting our interview processes, and providing computer and psychometric testing.

Their expertise, networks, and professional approach make them efficient and effective to work with to achieve the outcomes we are seeking.

Their friendly style, approachable team, and commitment to supporting the needs of our business make them exceptional in their field.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend PN Personnel.

Linda Stewart




We have engaged PNPersonnel on numerous occasions for a variety of roles. They treated each engagement with professionalism and a personal touch. Part of this is making sure they not only understand the position but also the type of person we need, as well as our company goals and values. We never feel that they are just going through the motions. This approach has led to new team members who are assets to our company.

The team at PN Personnel are professional and friendly and always seem ready to help.

They have a deep understanding of the local business scene, which then reflects in their sourcing.

We will continue to engage their services in the future. I can highly recommend PNPersonnel and their team.

Holmes Accounting – Long term business relationships

Holmes Accounting – Long term business relationships

Here at Holmes Accounting we have stable relationships with our clients, so I value the long term relationship I have had with Claire and her team over more than 20 years.

In that time, you have given us good productive people who have turned into the very effective team I have today.

Why would I go anywhere else other than Palmerston North Personnel?

Alan Holmes


Temporary Team Member, now a Client

I approached PN Personnel when I was looking for work myself and found Robyn was very responsive and professional. I was contacted quickly and not too long after I had two job interviews through Palmerston North Personnel. I was offered a suitable temporary role shortly afterwards – this seamlessly rolled into a fixed-term contract with the same employer.

Having already successfully worked with Robyn, it was easy to work with her again when I needed some temporary employees to add to my team. I gave Robyn my role specifications and I quickly received a shortlist of suitable CV’s and from the choices provided, identified and hired some good temporary employees.

I find Robyn responsive, professional, personable and I have had great results both as a job seeker and as a manager of people.


Sport Manawatu

Sport Manawatu

I recently worked with Cushla Brasell from Palmerston North Personnel as we were in a bind with our Sport Manawatu communications role. We needed someone fast.

I was really pleased we were able to quickly fill the void with a quality temporary employee.

Our temporary employee is going great guns, as well as being good at what she does, she is a regular face in our office and integrates well with our team.

After finding my position through Palmerston North Personnel, it’s easy to know where to go for help with recruitment when we need it.

Property Brokers

Not so long ago we found ourselves in a position where we needed to hire a PA to our Managing Director, as there has been a series of internal promotions. This is a position that is pivotal to the company, so it was vital we got it right! We already had a great relationship with Palmerston North Personnel, and Cushla specifically, so it was a no-brainer to call her and enlist her help.

There were a large number of responses, but there was one candidate who stood out, head and shoulders above the rest. This candidate was thoroughly reference checked before being put through a barrage of interviews and testing (the latter also through Palmerston North Personnel), and subsequently hired.

Palmerston North Personnel knew what we wanted, and as they had already invested a lot of time understanding our culture, they knew who to present me with, without wasting their time, my time, or the candidate’s time.

I have no hesitation recommending Palmerston North Personnel to any employer looking to recruit. I know we will use them again!
