Ella

Employed By Waka Kotahi - NZ Transport Agency, located in Palmerston North

Working with PN Personnel has been an absolute delight. The team was efficient and accessible and quickly found me my temp position at Waka Kotahi - NZTA. A six month contract turned in to a year and a half due to Covid and I can’t have asked for a better workplace and better support from a Temping Agency through this time. 

Robyn has been wonderful to work with and keeps in touch regularly. I’ve always felt appreciated and cared for under her supervision. The team is super personable and care about the well-being of their temp workers and make that very clear through their actions.

I’ve already recommended PNP to just about anyone who has brought up changing careers or looking for temporary work. I cannot recommend them enough! The last year and a half has been fantastic thanks to them.

Brett

Employed By QDS, located in Palmerston North

After a 16 year career with a large corporate New Zealand employer, I was suddenly faced with unemployment. As a result, I approached a number of local recruitment agencies (including several national brands) to seek temporary work assignments while looking for full-time employment. 

Only PN Personnel took the time to invite me in for an interview in relation to temporary work opportunities. Although initial discussions were focused on office work assignments, my subsequent roles were in industrial environments. 

PN Personnel actively followed up with both myself and their customer to ensure a successful fit with a temporary assignment. The confidence gained resulted in 2-3 months of regular work. Due to the introduction by PN Personnel, I was fortunate to receive a full-time job offer.

I am extremely grateful to both Robyn and Christine for their personal assistance with my employment journey. They are key members of a regionally focused recruitment agency that offer a professionally run service, while also being caring and friendly. 

If you are a potential employer or a job seeker, I highly recommend PN Personnel due to my positive experience.

Employed By Fitzherbert Rowe, located in Palmerston North

I’m very grateful to Robyn at PN Personnel! When I began to seek new employment, I wasn’t entirely sure what I wanted as I hadn’t actively searched new work in over 5 years. I met with Robyn about a position at Fitzherbert Rowe and she was incredibly lovely to speak to. Right from the start I could tell she had the best interests of the company and me in mind and was determined to find the right fit for everyone. After a little push from her, I met with the FR team and have now signed a contract for full time employment!

I couldn’t have done it without her and would highly recommend bringing her on board for your employment journey. Whether you are a business looking to recruit or an individual seeking work, she will definitely do what’s best for you.

Carol

Employed By PNCC, located in Palmerston North

It’s been a pleasure working with PN Personnel to secure temporary assignments over the last few months and most recently a permanent position. I believe there are real benefits to working with their agency as a job seeker. The team take the time to get to know you, your work history, and likely fit for jobs and within organisations. They also have access to job opportunities that may not be advertised in the mainstream market. 

As a converter from temp to permanent candidate they were able to promote me to potential employers knowing how I work with feedback from previous assignments. 

The staff are friendly, organised and professional and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to job seekers in the Manawatu. I’m very grateful for their assistance!

I have secured a full-time role here with Whanganui District Council as their Council-Owned Housing Officer. My dream job so you can imagine my excitement.  Thank you team PNP for having me as a Temp, it’s been a pleasure to work with and for you all. Take care, keep up the brilliant work you all do.

Larissa

Employed By Hunting & Fishing, located in Palmerston North

I recently landed a job with Hunting and Fishing after searching for several jobs based off my Marketing degree. The service from PN Personnel was super efficient, I found out about my job later in the day after my interview. Cushla was so friendly and helpful and always provided helpful information for the lead up to my interview. Cushla would contact me at any time of the day even after her own work hours. She helped me set up everything I needed to get started on my career and continued to follow up with great support. I would highly recommend seeking a job through PN Personnel, they will give you all the help and guidance you need. The service is exceptional! Thank you again Cushla and the team at PN Personnel 😊

Kelsey

Employed By Milson Foundry Ltd located in Palmerston North

Making the choice to return to the workforce after maternity leave and the Covid lockdown was daunting, however working closely with Christine made finding a new career path extremely easy. Christine was able to match up my skill set with a great employer and position and offered support and guidance through the whole process. I would happily recommend PN Personnel to any of my friends and family.

Viv

Employed By Straitline Canvas located in Palmerston North

PN Personnel has been very professional and helpful during my search for a position that suited.  They interviewed me promptly and got the ball rolling instantly. Working with both Robyn & Christine,  their communication has been great with keeping me up to date, and with arrangements of interviews.

I have successfully got a full time position with their help. It has been an absolute pleasure working with them both, and would recommend the PN Personnel team to everyone looking for work, both permanent and temporary.

Thanks once again,  for a job well done.

Nikki

Employed By Morrison Creed, located in Palmerston North

I had a great experience with PN Personnel. I was looking for a change from the industry I was in and Christine was a great help. She was very understanding and made the whole  experience easier. I would definitely recommend PN Personnel to anyone looking for work or a career change. 

Wendy

Employed By McKee Plastics, located in Feilding

Christine has been wonderfully supportive, very approachable and invested in a good outcome for both parties. I would highly recommend her and PN Personnel to any job seekers.

Tanya

Employed By Hunting & Fishing, located in Palmerston North

I have recently secured a Product Brand Coordinator role at Hunting and Fishing, thanks to Cushla at PN Personnel.

From the initial interview through to accepting the role, Cushla kept the lines of communication open, and kept me updated at every step. 

After returning to NZ from the UK after 10 years abroad I was unsure how my work experience would fit with the NZ market. I was put at ease by Cushla who I felt got to know me and my experience before judging that I was the right candidate for the company. I would 100% recommend Cushla and the team for any job seekers.

Malisa

Employed By Hunting & Fishing, located in Palmerston North

I came across PN Personnel when looking for a role in Palmy. Being based in Auckland meant it was a little bit trickier to look for work and arrange interviews. However Cushla made the whole process seamless and super easy and I didn't have to worry about anything.

She was supportive and communicative with me, particularly when I was arranging to come down from Auckland to meet with Hunting & Fishing. She had a professional yet friendly approach that put me at ease while job hunting. Because of this, I am really looking forward to moving down and starting my role.

I would highly recommend PN Personnel for anyone looking for work in Palmy. The team are fantastic and make job hunting less daunting and stressful. Thanks again!

Liana

Employed By PNCC, located in Palmerston North

The team are incredibly professional, quick and pleasant to deal with. I was after temporary employment in governance and / or communications. I was presented with both within 2 days of signing up with the team. Cushla and Christine were so lovely and helpful and took care of absolutely everything. I enjoyed both of my temping stints and I will definitely be heading back to PN Personnel should I seek any other temporary / permanent employment in the future. 

Once again, thanks for everything! 

Faith

Employed By Property Brokers, located in Palmerston North

I found the partnership between myself, Cushla and the rest of the PN Personnel team to be a match made in heaven. I am extremely grateful that our paths crossed. I felt my best interests were always kept in mind, communication was efficient and friendly and each encounter was genuine. I highly recommend PN Personnel for any individual looking for new work, a challenge or a new industry to work within. Thank you kindly.

Melanie

Employed By Property Brokers, located in Palmerston North

I would absolutely recommend PN Personnel for anyone looking for work.  I contacted them initially to see what availability there was for some temp work while I was searching for my next role. I met with Cushla who had a few options in mind for me already, and while we were talking she told me about a permanent role that might be suitable. Within a week I had had an interview, completed the required testing, had a second interview and received my contract.  I found all the PN Personnel staff to be friendly, knowledgeable, helpful, professional and quick, great follow up too! 

Thanks Team – you’re the best!!

Arati

Employed By Toyota NZ, located in Palmerston North

Working with Robyn made it much easier to find roles based in Palmerston North. She is fantastic and very quick in replying to your emails/calls.  She has a very good idea of the sort of roles I'd potentially be a good match for. She's genuinely friendly and helpful. As a result, PN Personnel is hands down my favourite agency and I've recommended PN Personnel to several friends.

Sophie

Employed By Totally Vets, Located in Feilding

It has been a pleasure to deal with Christine and the support team from PN Personnel. She was very professional from the start and made the whole process enjoyable. She not only focused on finding a good fit for the recruiting company, by testing me regarding my skills, and qualifying my background and experience, but she also focused on finding a suitable job for me, by listening to my professional projects and ambitions. She went along with me for all the steps of the process and gave me good and valuable feedback. Her communication was effective and straight to the point. I had a really good experience using PN Personnel as my recruitment agency, and will recommend it to any professional."

Imran

Employed By Co-Mac Group Ltd located in Palmerston North

It has been an incredible journey to partner with PN Personnel. They'll always try their best to match a job with your preferred field and skills. Christine has been very helpful and professional since day one. She was always quick to respond and tend to any of my questions. All the communication, decisions, and transition were made easy by Christine.

I started working at Co-Mac as a temporary staff and finally got a permanent position in a job that matches my skills and qualifications. The company is a perfect match for me thanks to PN Personnel.

I definitely recommend PN Personnel to all job hunters out there. 

Graeme

Employed By Jarvis Equipment NZ Ltd located in Palmerston North

From the first day I walked in to Palmerston North Personnel I was made to feel welcome, and I was treated courteously and respectfully by all staff members I met with.

It wasn’t very long to wait before Christine (the PN Personnel rep who was handling my case) contacted me with a potential position at Jarvis Equipment. After a brief interview with the manager and a department lead I landed the position as a casual. PN Personnel were very supportive through the settling processes and maintained that support and regular contact throughout the 2 years I remained as a casual with Jarvis Equipment. I have now accepted a full time position with Jarvis, with the help and support from PN Personnel the transition of employment from PN Personnel to Jarvis was effortless and smooth.

After 2 years being employed through Palmerston North Personnel I would strongly recommend Palmerston North Personnel to any potential job seeker. PN Personnel staff have high ethical standards and will treat you with the dignity and respect throughout your involvement with them.
