Thank you for all your hard work for me over the past year. I really appreciate all the efforts Palmerston North Personnel have gone to to find me employment (and to make sure my timesheets are in on time!).

Temping has been a fantastic opportunity and I feel like I've gained worthwhile life experience in my various roles!

My experience working with Palmerston North Personnel has been very successful and I would happily recommend Palmerston North Personnel to anyone :)

Once again, thank you. My gap year was successful because of you!

I just wanted to say thank you to Christine and Palmerston North Personnel for the lovely chocolate cake, it was awesome, and on a personal note also wanted to thank you for your help with my Temporary Assignments here at Massey University. I am looking forward to my new permanent role on the Service Desk and I am sure I will see you up on the Campus when you visit.

Thank you for all your hard work securing me the role and keeping me informed throughout the process. I have been really impressed at the speed at which things have been moving, which is very unusual - to have confirmation of the job on the same day as the interview is almost unheard of.

I conducted an Occupational Interest Profile with Palmerston North Personnel to help me make informed decisions about what I want to do and where I want to go post secondary schooling.

Completing the questionnaire was easy and the report I received was great and detailed my personality to a T. It gave good suggestions as career choices and prompted me to think about things I had never thought of.

I would recommend this to school leavers - ‘OIP was definitely right for me’.

I finished my degree in November and Palmerston North Personnel were able to fill in my summer with work, and then offer me a full-time contract at Massey University.

The job was a great stepping stone to where I wanted to be and it was a great stepping stone to kick off my career to help me find my dream job.

The staff at Palmerston North Personnel were great and were a pleasure to work with - they are passionate about what they do! I wouldn't hesitate to work for them again.

After several years working and living overseas, the team at Palmerston North Personnel were very helpful with finding me a temporary position which developed into a fixed-term contract.

I would not hesitate to recommend Palmerston North Personnel to anyone trying to find a position in today's very difficult market.

When I relocated to Palmerston North I had been working in banking and finance for 7 years and decided I needed a change, so I contacted Palmerston North Personnel.

From the moment I stepped into their office, I felt welcome and the staff really listened to what I wanted to do. All of the team at Palmerston North Personnel are very friendly and approachable and I was never put under any pressure to accept an assignment.

On assignments, I received phone calls and visits (sometimes with goodies) to make sure things were going smoothly. 6 months and 2 assignments later, I have been offered a fixed-term contract from my last placement. Thanks team, for all your help and support!

Finding myself unemployed after many years of secure employment I was having some difficulty landing a job even with a great CV and solid references. I decided it was time to try a recruitment agency and my father and cousin, both in good jobs, recommended Palmerston North Personnel. My cousin had been placed in a full-time job by Palmerston North Personnel several years earlier and is still employed by the same company.

Joining up was a breeze and the friendly team at the agency were able to find me work almost straight away. I wished I had joined them earlier. I highly recommend them to job seekers, you won't regret it. Special thanks to Christine who worked tirelessly on my behalf. Great stuff!

Three years out of high school, I was going from job to job not particularly enjoying what I was doing. I sufferred a sports injury that made me unable to work. After 6 months, I decided that I couldn't keep going down that same path and needed a career which I'd be able to do and that I'd enjoy. But I wasn't sure what that might be or how to find out.

A friend had heard of the Occupational Interest Profile (OIP+) and suggested I "give it a go". The OIP+ proved to be quick to complete, easy to use and I was able to do it from home.

The Palmerston North Personnel team were enthusiastic and really willing to help me out, answering any questions I had.  I found them very open and professional, making things very clear and easy to understand.

After getting the report back and looking through the comprehensive OIP+ report which included job suggestions. Physiotherapy was one suggested career path.  I am now looking at studying at university and starting a career as a physiotherapist.

Had I not given the OIP+ a go, I would still be going from job to job. Now I've been given a chance to follow a career I'm likley to enjoy and it's all because of the OIP+ and the Palmerston North Personnel team! I can't thank them enough for helping me out and would recommend the OIP+ to anyone who is struggling to make career choices. You should get Palmerston North Personnel to help you too.

I had the opportunity to complete the Occupational Interest Profile and found it a useful exercise.

It reconfirmed my main areas of interests and gave me a bit more information about my personality traits. It was helpful to understand what jobs would suit me best.

In March I moved to Palmerston North from Nelson. With a large holiday planned in the middle of the year, I did not want to start job seeking until I returned from my travels.

I contacted Palmerston North Personnel to explain my situation and they suggested I come in, go through the registration process, so that when I came back I could start job seeking straight away. In the meantime, Palmerston North Personnel kept an eye out for any opportunities that might be suitable.

Four days after landing back in New Zealand I received a call from Palmerston North Personnel advising they had a temporary assignment I would be suited to. The role was being advertised permanently at the time, so I applied and fortunately for me, I managed to get the position.

During my time with Palmerston North Personnel I found the staff to be friendly and professional. The communication was excellent as I was amazed to be back into full-time work so quickly after returning from my trip. I would not hesitate to recommend Palmerston North Personnel to any future job seekers out there.

I have to admit I have set up my email for Job Alert notifications on new job listings from Palmerston North Personnel. I was, and continue to be very impressed on Palmerston North Personnel's professionalism towards prospective job candidates.

Quite simply the very best I have had the pleasure of being involved in over my work life.

I was kept fully informed during the whole process and never felt forgotten, which is an area I would say that all other companies have failed on.

I can and definitely will be recommending Palmerston North Personnel to everyone I know. I started as a Temporary Employee and have just been made Permanent.

The team have been great and very easy to deal with. I had no problems at all and gained a position quickly after signing up. They all made sure that I was happy and were in communication with me regularly.

They are professional, treat you with respect and I can not speak highly enough of them all. Thank you Palmerston North Personnel.

P.S I love those Chocy fish! :-)

Working with Palmerston North Personnel has been nothing short of fantastic. I was looking for short term work and within a week of signing with them, I not only had a job but one that was perfectly suited to me, in a fun, friendly environment.

With on-going support from Palmerston North Personnel as well as regular check in's, both face to face and over the phone, the whole experience went above and beyond.

I would highly recommend Palmerston North Personnel as an approachable, friendly and extremely proficient agency, and I would not hesitate to use their services in the future.

Thanks so much for a wonderful experience!

I have worked in various temp roles through Palmerston North Personnel for over 4 years and loved every minute of it.

The team at Palmerston North Personnel have been awesome, friendly and very efficient. I did not had to wait long at all from going from 1 role to another and have enjoyed every role for several reasons, such as meeting a lot of different people and making friends along the way. I also learnt a lot of new skills which I have benefited from greatly.

I would definitely recommend Palmerston North Personnel to anyone looking for work experience or temporary roles in Palmerston North.

Big thanks to the team for making those 4 years a great experience.
