Employed By HS White & Son, located in Palmerston North

PN Personnel were excellent in helping me secure my job.

The team were realistic in what roles were best for my skillset and experience, and offered me lots of support improving my CV and cover letter.

I've worked with 3 recruitment specialists during my job hunt, Christine, Robyn and Cushla, who all were fantastic. They struck an excellent balance between being professional, but also being personable, friendly and supportive.

I would certainly recommend the team at PN Personnel to others on their own search for employment. I always felt a sense of optimism around the PN Personnel office, which made me feel confident that the team could help me on my path to employment.


Employed By Tararua District Council, located in Dannevirke

My thanks go out to the PN Personnel team.  I’ve worked with Cushla, Robyn and Christine over the past 18 months when I returned to the Manawatu job market from Wellington. I have been filling temporary assignments during this time and found their support to be vital to making these positions a great experience for both the client and myself.

Recently I covered a parental leave position at the Tararua District Council and upon the person returning to the workforce, my assignment did not end! I was invited to join them in the same role as a job-share position permanently, so dream jobs do happen, and anything is possible.

If you are looking for a professional, friendly team that work for you, then look no further.


Employed By Glendinnings Chartered Accountants, located in Palmerston North

Working with PN Personnel helped me to secure a new job in a new town. I felt my Recruitment Specialist had my best interests in mind when helping me get my new job. Cushla made moving to a new town easy and stress free. I would highly recommend going to PN Personnel when looking for a new career. 


Employed By Moore Markhams

I found PN Personnel friendly and supportive from the get-go. With their help I was able to take the next step in my career and achieve the job I had been striving for.


Employed By Kauri HealthCare

On the day of my initial registation and interview with Robyn Bills, she put forward my name to Kauri HealthCare for a 6 month contract position.

Soon after completing application formalities, Robyn phoned to say they would like to interview me for the position.

The very next day after my interview Robyn phoned with the fantastic news that Kauri HealthCare were offering me the role.

I must say how impressed I have been with Robyn - very professional, the ability to match my skills and experience to the right role, and very proactive and prompt with her communication.

Will not hesistate to contact Robyn again if I'm in the situation seeking another role. 


It was the day after I registered with PN Personnel when they called me for my first assignment! I have just moved to Palmy and really need to work! It seems to me that these Ladies do not muck about. Thanks to Christine, Tabitha and Cushla for opening the tap to the start of my new life here in Palmy!


I found dealing with Christine and the whole of PN Personnel great to deal with through my permanent placement.

They went above and beyond what was needed and looked after me and went out of their way to help with contract signing.

I would wholly recommend them - great to deal with!


Just under a year ago I was singing the praises of PN Personnel and the great work Christine Hanning had done for me to get me into an amazing contract role at Massey University.

Last Thursday I went from being a contractor to being a permanent member of the Service Desk team at Massey.

Yes I achieved this through hard work, dedication and putting in the effort to succeed. But the journey only started because Christine was willing to back me, to put me forward and then support me throughout the whole journey. Through starting out, lockdowns, all the rollercoaster fun this last 8 months has been, not once did I feel like I was doing this alone.

Christine and PN had my back every step of the way. As thrilled as I am to be moving to a permanent role with a team I love doing something I enjoy, there will never be a moment when I am not thankful for the work and support I had from Christine and the amazing team at PN Personnel.

In the words of one of my favourite authors - Terry Pratchett - "anything said three times is true: Thank you, thank you, thank you.


Very grateful for the support given to me by Christine and the staff at PN Personnel, I had several placements while with PN Personnel, each one was a good fit with my skill set, and I enjoyed my time at them while I was there.


I recently applied for a job advertised with PN Personnel and found Christine wonderful to deal with, she kept me well informed throughout the process and made sure I knew all I needed to know for the role I had applied for. 

Communication was great and Christine's manner was very welcoming. 

I was successful in the role which made my experience even better with PN Personnel. 


Employed By Pacific Helmets, located in Whanganui

It was a pleasure dealing with PN Personnel, right from the reception it was a very professional environment & experience. Christine was exceptionally good & patient and kept me informed all the way through the recruitment process. Most of all Christine understood my requirements and helped me find a suitable job which I am looking forward to. I would highly recommend PN Personnel to anyone in the job market, both from an Employer & Employee point of view.


Employed By Betacraft NZ Ltd, located in Pahiatua

My first visit to PN Personnel was professional from the start. Very friendly and welcoming team.

Robyn was amazing to talk to, very professional, but also down to earth.

Robyn was genuinely interested from the start in finding me employment, and understanding what I was looking for.

Within a couple of weeks and a couple of interviews I found full time employment.

Thank you Robyn and the team at PN Personnel.


Employed By Matrix Polymers, located in Palmerston North

In the current employment market position requirements have been specialized and expectations have been raised and to be a valued candidate it will require some focused determination.

This is exactly what I experienced with Christine at PN Personnel. They were very successful in understanding me as a person and paired me up with a position and career choice that suits my interests.

I found that the constant communication eliminated the anxiety and uncertainty and the level of support from them is nothing short of remarkable. They have taken a daunting experience and transformed it into a memorable journey.

I can openly and honestly say that they don't just find you a job, they become friends and put you on a great start to a rewarding career.

Great team delivering even better results.


Employed By Higgins Family Holdings Limited

The process of applying for a job with PN Personnel was highly professional, friendly and enjoyable. Cushla and the team at PN Personnel made the whole experience run smoothly and efficiently with their hard work and bubbly, kind personalities. I cannot express my gratitude enough. Thank you for such an amazing experience!


Employed By CEDA

PN Personnel made the entire recruitment process as a job seeker an absolute pleasure.  They were great with their communications and understanding me and what I was looking for in my next career move. Their connectivity with my now new employer was great and were able to provide me answers to any questions that I had. 

Once I was in my new job, they supported my integration into my new role with regular phone calls and emails to see how I was settling in, not only into my new role and finding my place in a new work environment, but also in respect to the fact I had relocated to take up the position. 

They really showed care in ensuring my integration wasn’t just about into the workplace but also finding my way in a new city and region. 

I can’t recommend PN Personnel highly enough and I would certainly engage with them again when I am looking for my next career move.


PNP – You guys ROCK the Employment Recruitment Scene

Finding employment can be at the best of times, a very stressful and daunting process. Two years ago, I moved from the Hawke’s Bay to Palmerston North and my quest to find employment began.

PN Personnel removed all the anxiety by taking it of my shoulders.

I was employed within a week and have been working in a variety of administration roles as a temp, until recently I requested them to find a permanent position. This took two weeks to have a permanent position in a role that is relatable and enjoyable. I am a happy camper thank you guys.


Employed By Palmerston North City Council

I want to thank Christine and the team at PN Personnel who made it possible for me to take the next step in my career as a professional accountant. With their support and guidance, I have secured an extremely rewarding role with the Palmerston North City Council which would otherwise not have been possible.

I can only speak highly of Christine’s professionalism and dedication. Christine made the process simple and straightforward, while keeping me updated through the entire process.

I recommend PN Personnel to anyone who is seeking employment or the next step in their career.


I had a really great experience working with Christine. She really assisted and guided me through the entire employment process.

I am very grateful that I had the opportunity to work with her and would recommend Christine and PN Personnel's services to anyone.


I dealt with Christine from PN Personnel Palmerston North while looking for new employment early in 2020. 

I found the professionalism of PN Personnel to be of a high standard, they communicated well, never leaving you wondering what was going on.  It was the small things that impressed me the most.

Thanks to Christine at PN Personnel I have secured myself a dream role which I know I will thoroughly love.  Thanks Christine!


I first met Christine Hanning from PN Personnel when I was chasing my dream job. 

Christine was prompt, friendly and really helpful with all my questions and emails. Christine helped me through the initial stages of interviews and helped me to relax and see that I was really prepared for the position I wanted. Christine supported me at each stage of the interviews, even when there was a few weeks between them. 

I was not successful but Christine already had something else up her sleeve that I was really keen to be a part of.

Finally I knew where I needed to be and Christine helped to get me there.
