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.

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.

Graeme - Temporary to Permanent Solutions

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.

Property Brokers

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!

MidCentral District Health Board

I just wanted to express my appreciation for Robyn's ongoing support in finding us the right people with the right skill mix and experience to work and support our teams across the service.

We are so lucky to have the three temps that we have now with our teams and not having to go through the recruitment process – as we all know the recruitment process takes a lot of your time. I am pleased to say that the three temps are extremely competent and enjoy working in the areas they are assigned to. We are pleased to be able to offer one temp permanent employment and thank you for your support in this. We look forward to offering the other temps the same in the near future.

Thanks again for your support.

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.

Ruahine Kindergarten Association

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.

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.
