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 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.
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.

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.
Technical Support Manager
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!

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.
