From the very beginning my experience with PN Personnel has been nothing short of exceptional. Within 3 weeks of completing full-time study, Cushla and the team were able to assist me in finding permanent full-time employment. They took the time to listen to my aspirations and what I found important in a career and matched my needs every step of the way. Cushla was able to support me throughout the whole process which made for a seamless and successful experience. I highly recommend the team at  PN Personnel.



Being thousands of kilometres from home, as an international student, I found PN Personnel very supportive and professional. Once I was introduced to the team I felt the warmth of welcome like at home.

Then, after I had "registered", I was carefully tested and interviewed by highly experienced recruitment staff where my strengths and weaknesses, professional and personal qualities were perfectly identified.

I believe this benefits both, employees and employers to get a perfect match for a position. PN Personnel were in regular contact with me, in order to have my up-to-date employment status and give temporary solutions, while having in mind my ultimate aim.

As a result, within a short period of time I was lucky enough to have an interview for a position of Accounts Receivable Officer at a reputable Tertiary Institute. Robyn Bills helped me to prepare for the interview and overcome my stress. Hence, I passed the interview smoothly and have been enjoying my new job since February.

I must admit that without PN Personnel Recruitment Specialist's hard work and experience, this mission could be almost impossible for me.

Thank you PN Personnel very much!!!

Proud to be in the team!

I contacted PN Personnel when my position was made redundant in April of this year. From the first initial contact, I found them to be not only highly professional but also encouraging and supportive.

Within the last 8 months or so, Cushla sourced temporary assignments for me. This provided me with an income whilst working with PN Personnel to find full-time employment. The team provided me with support through the interview process and after being offered a full-time position, they also worked with me to ensure I was happy with my employment contract.

The thing that impressed me about PN Personnel is nothing was ever a problem, they were always welcoming, friendly and enthusiastic.

I would have no reservations in recommending them to anyone seeking either temporary or full-time employment.



I want to thank you so much for all your hard work in helping me find not just a job but a career.

My family and I were wanting to relocate back to Palmerston North but first I wanted to secure employment. PN Personnel were the only company who I contacted which never stopped communicating with me from the very first phone call.

I always found Cushla very friendly, supportive and professional to deal with, and very knowledgeable.

The fact I was living in Tauranga did not slow the process down. I initially had a Skype interview then was put through thorough skills testing and Psychometric Assessments to determine my suitability.

I never thought I would ever be lucky enough to be in a position to receive 2 job offers, but Cushla helped with the entire process.

I truly appreciate all your hard work and time you have put in for me.

Thank you so much!



Sometimes job hunting can be a lonely experience. Once I was registered with PN Personnel I felt that I had people on my team - people who knew who I was and remembered my name. I stopped being invisible.

With the New Zealand economy needing all the skilled people it can get to grow.

The attitude of PN Personnel to older workers is perfect. They have respect for skills and experience and they are honest with you about your options and also about your barriers to employment.

Being taken seriously and being made to feel that "my fabulous career" could still add value to my country made me feel relevant.



Employed By Property Brokers


Thanks to Cushla and her belief in my skills to be able to do the job, I started with Property Brokers as Senior Admin Support back in November.

I returned to Palmerston North, from Dunedin where I’d spent the last 10 years working in hospitality, to be closer to family. My first port of call the day after I moved back to town was to register at PN Personnel. Within a week of the interview with Cushla and doing the computer tests, she had an interview lined up for me at Property Brokers. I was offered the role of Senior Admin Support within a couple of days of the interview and started work the following Monday! It has been a huge learning curve and challenge for me, but one that I have been more than happy to take on, and I haven’t looked back since.

I was totally impressed with the PN Personnel team and their service, and follow through after I started at Property Brokers also. Especially loved the cake! Thanks again!



Christine was my first consultant I met at PN Personnel when I moved across into temporary work back in March. I was placed at a National Support Office which really was a treat and a great learning curve to work there. I thoroughly enjoyed the work and twice I got offered permanent contract roles. Recently I was successful in having another short term temporary opportunity given to me in Levin, which not only is close for my travelling but at an organisation which I am very passionate about. I have been fortunate enough to have been offered a permanent role and therefore no longer require the services that PN Personnel can and have offered me in the past. You never know, our paths may cross again in the future and I'm sure going to miss not working with PN Personnel. Thanks for everything.



I would like to thank the team at PN Personnel for their wonderful commitment with respect to finding me temporary work, and eventually securing me a full-time permanent position. During my period of unemployment I had approached every single recruitment agency in Palmerston North, Hastings and Napier. With only a few exceptions, PN Personnel were the only company who actually took the time to fully read my CV, gave me a one on one personal interview and maintained regular contact with me. They provided me with two appropriate temporary jobs that kept me solvent in a period between two applications for full-time positions. I was accepted for the 2nd of these applications and am now dutifully employed.

So, I would like to tip my hat to the great people who are responsible for the best news I have had in a long time.

Thanks very much PN Personnel!
