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.

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.

We had a 12 month maternity fill position become available and we advertised it receiving over 120 applications. On seeing our advertising, Palmerston North Personnel offered their assistance to us.

From putting forward a candidate from their client base, to screening any number of the many applications we received, we found Claire and the team at Palmerston North Personal to be very professional and proficient with the service provided and we ended up choosing one of their candidates to join our small friendly team.

Ainsley has fitted in extremely well to a somewhat demanding and varied role. We have joked with Claire that we could have saved a whole lot of time had we gone directly to the professionals in the first place.

Morrison Creed Advisory Limited

Morrison Creed commenced in business on 1 April 2006 with a total staff of 9 (including Directors) and as of today our total staff sits at 20.

Since commencing in business, Palmerston North Personnel have been our preferred recruitment agency and they have been responsible for placing a majority of our new employees over this period.

We have found them to be very professional in the way they operate, they identify exactly what our requirements are and then locate potential applicants suitable to the position. We have found that the quality of applicants they have provided has been of a very high standard.

Palmerston North Personnel always provide a great follow up service, in that they make an appearance on a new employee's first day to ensure that both parties have no concerns or queries. They have also provided assistance and guidance with respect to market salaries for various positions within our organisation.

We also find Palmerston North Personnel to be very competitively priced in the market.

We would like to thank Palmerston North Personnel for their support and look forward to working closely with them as our preferred recruitment agency for many years to come.

Due to a maternity position arising in our office we had the difficult task of replacing a very valued member of our team. After previous experience with advertising ourselves we decided to employ the skills of a Recruitment agency.

The speed in which our enquiry was dealt with, the quality of the candidates and the level of service far exceeded our expectations. Palmerston North Personnel have also been fantastic with continued follow up and contact since the role was filled.

At all times we have found them to show a keen understanding of our business and what our staffing requirements are, they consistently supply quality candidates and never try to put a square peg in a round hole.

One of the keys to the successful relationship we enjoy with Palmerston North Personnel is the regular contact which enables them to proactively meet our growth and changes, often they are able to supply appropriate candidates to us from their database without the need for advertising.

I have no hesitation in recommending Palmerston North Personnel.

I recently tasked Palmerston North Personnel to find me a super organised mind-reading Personal Assistant. They got out their crystal ball and provided me with a shortlist of top quality applicant's that really made the whole process so easy and simple.

Palmerston North Personnel wrapped up the process professionally and effectively and I have been joined by a fantastic new staff member who is now a vital member of my team.

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 would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your assistance and professional approach to recruiting, on our behalf, the Manager for Chilltech Palmerston North.

We approached three recruitment agencies to assist in our search and in the end your company provided two of the three shortlisted candidates, including the successful applicant.

The reason for this seems to be your attention to the specification given and the areas where you requested further elaboration, which seemed to have provided us with candidates best fitting our needs.

We were also impressed with the ongoing communication, presentation of candidates and overall professionalism shown by Palmerston North Personnel.

Should we require assistance in the Palmerston North area in the future, our first approach will be to Palmerston North Personnel.

I used Palmerston North Personnel for a recruitment drive for new developer analysts. The recruitment was key to an expanding team and service portfolio, hence some key personal and professional attributes were sought.

The Palmerston North Personnel team took on a lot of the responsibility for advertising, vetting and recommending the candidates. The results delivered on two key fronts both reducing the overhead on my day to day duties, and certainly providing high quality applicants for consideration.

We have taken on two new staff from the recruitment and are delighted with the attitude and personality they have brought to the team as well as the fast learning curve and core skills they have displayed.

Blue Tuna Works Limited

As part of a Contract Role to NZPM I was responsible for the development of a new IS Team support model which entailed the establishment of two new technical positions. These positions were technically challenging and proved difficult to identify the right candidates to fill them.

The team at Palmerston North Personnel worked hard at understanding the profile I was looking for and then worked diligently at filling these roles. Due to the uniqueness of the roles the filling of one role in particular took three exposures to the market to find the right candidate.

Palmerston North Personnel offered multiple and innovative approaches for each subsequent revisit to the market which ultimately resulted in the successful outcome we desired.

Blue Tuna Works Ltd is a small consulting company that is based on 20+ years involvement within the Information Systems environments of Government, Tertiary, and private sectors. The business specialises in the provision of impartial and neutral advice on IS strategic directions, major system solution development and reviews of vendor offerings including costing reviews, business process mapping and refinement, IS Support model development, and project management.
