Success Stories - Permanently Employed

Abraham

Employed By Co-Mac Ltd

After relocating from the South Island never did I consider finding a job in such a short amount of time.... lots of people search and search for jobs and never find the right one.

Due to PN Personnel's great team and the help of Christine they were able to quickly and efficiently direct me to a job that matched everything I was looking for. The team was able to identify a position/company that was a good match for me in every way. Thanks to the help of PN Personnel I get paid to do what I love.

If you're on the hunt for a perfect job, or sick of finding the wrong one, a phone call to PN Personnel will change your outlook on job searching. If the right job is out there for you, PN Personnel will find it.

Robyn has been a pleasure to deal with, she is prompt, proactive and efficient.

I relocated to Palmerston North from Auckland with a whole bunch of job applications and no interviews. I joined 2 temping agencies and PNP was the only one to take my job seeking seriously. Robyn put forward temping job opportunities straight away and more importantly had me meeting businesses face to face. I am now happily employed permanently after temping for 2 months. Thanks to Robyn my transition to the Manawatu far less stressful than it could have been.

I highly recommend Robyn, Tabitha and the PNP team to anyone.

Recently I entrusted Christine and the team at Palmerston North Personnel to help me find a job that would be suitable for my relocation to Palmerston North. I found the entire experience to be very stress free with regular contact and excellent communication skills. From the first call to  the Service Co-ordinator she explained that a simple questionnaire online was to be completed and I was to attach my CV. Then an interview was organised with one of the team, and then another interview when I found my dream job that I wanted to apply for. I was successful after just one recommendation all this in less than four weeks.

I am currently employed with a family business in a field I have always wanted to work in. I am so grateful for the questions that were asked in my interview at PN Personnel, it was fantastic ground work to link me with the perfect job with a team that I feel very compatible with.

I can highly recommend using PN Personnel for recruiting anyone, any age, for a job that meets all their needs.

 

Nadine

I came to Palmerston North Personnel looking for work and they were friendly, warm and very professional. They understood my situation and were happy to help me find work that suited my needs.

They were proactive, it wasn't just one person looking for me, I had their amazing team aware of my criteria and skills.

Cushla rang a few days after my meeting with Robyn, she was very positive and helpful in a position that had come across her desk. She was prompt in sending through the Job Description, she was easy to deal with and always happy to hear from me. I have been employed on the six month contract that I was put forward for and I'm loving it.

Knowing that Palmerston North Personnel not only touch base with me but also my team up until three months is very reassuring.

I highly recommend working with Palmerston North Personnel and will definitely have them as my "Go To" when looking for work again.

Employed By Co-Mac

Over the past couple of years I have been in a mix of contracted work in IT and retail. When one contract ended, I would get in touch with multiple recruitment agencies and look for more opportunities. PN Personnel outshined them all.

The team at PN Personnel kept in contact with me frequently, and was very well organised when it came to setting up interviews with other companies when opportunities arose.

Many thanks to Christine, Cushla, Robyn and the rest of the team for helping me get this far and finally achieve a full-time position.

 

Brenda

Employed By UCOL

I was referred to PN Personnel by a friend and have never regretted it. I approached the Agency and met Robyn who made me feel so welcome. She assessed and interviewed me to determine where my skills, qualifications and interests would best be suited. She advised that she would get back to me immediately something came up.

To my surprise, it didn’t take long. Robyn contacted me to tell me about a temporary role (I must confess I was a bit hesitant about working as temp). I however, took the chance and accepted this 3 week temporary role that seamlessly rolled into a permanent role, hurray! I find the job very challenging and interesting. I am happy I approached PN Personnel because I am very happy and successful in my role as Student Learning Advisor.

Thanks to PN Personnel for the connection. I find the Agency very professional in their services and would definitely not hesitate to recommend them to anyone.

Working with Robyn was very rewarding for me as she is not only a wonderful professional but kind, cheerful, and highly approachable Recruitment Specialist. She demonstrates a lot of excellency in her role. You’re just a star Robyn!

 

La'a

Temporary Team Member, now Permanently Employed

I lived in Auckland my entire life and in February of this year I moved to Palmerston North. I only knew a total of 4 people including my husband. It was definitely a scary time for me as I left everything I knew as ‘home’ back in Auckland. After a couple of months I started job searching and signed up with 3 recruitment agencies.

PN Personnel was the only agency who replied and sprung into action taking me under their wing.

Within only a couple of weeks of signing up with them they called me about an exciting temporary role that they described would be perfect for me. It most certainly was! After temping for 4 months I was offered a permanent position and I couldn’t have been happier – literally!

PN Personnel gave me more than just a salary coming in, they gave me new hope in a new town and a future with new possibilities. I felt like I was their most important candidate.

Thank you so much Christine for everything you have done for me. Your professionalism and world class customer service truly exceeded my expectations and I wish nothing but the very best for you and your team. It was an absolutely amazing experience which will stay with me for the rest of my life.

Rae

After being made redundant after 7.5 years on employment, I was nervous about hitting the job market again let alone interviewing.

PN Personnel was advertising the first job that I applied for and they made the whole process so easy for me.

Cushla was my Recruitment Specialist during the application process and I found her upbeat, supportive and always kept me in the loop. Within a month of applying for the position, I had a signed contract and start date.

Thanks to Cushla and the rest of the team at PN Personnel I am now in a job that I absolutely love. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the team to anyone looking for employment in Palmerston North.

 

Marilyn

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.

 

Anne Marie

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.

 

Mallory

Employed By FMG

I just wanted to say thank you for everything Palmerston North Personnel and your staff have done for me in regard to my search for employment.

Y’all were so helpful and efficient in aiding me in my job search; I had begun to lose faith in the hunt for a job when I signed up with you guys. The search was a bit overwhelming for me as I had just moved from Oregon, USA and was unfamiliar with the process in New Zealand.

The knowledge and resources that Palmerston North Personnel provided instantly put me at ease and gave me confidence in regard to my career in New Zealand. 

Your placement of me with FMG was a perfect fit and I am so grateful that it was able to turn into a permanent position!

So I just wanted to say thanks to you and your staff and keep up the great work!

Millissa

I'd like to say thank you to Christine Hanning, the consultant at PN Personnel who helped me find myself in the workplace.

She worked with me around the demands of being a working mother, and offered roles that best suited my skills, advanced my career goals and that suited me as a person. Christine championed and supported me over a period of 6 years, and was a thorough, glowing referee which assisted my now boss in deciding to hire me.

I have and will continue to recommend Christine as a Recruitment Specialist.

Thank you for your support.

Simon

Employed By Plumbing World Support Office

For the past 18 years I have been working overseas. When I decided to come home I found it challenging to re-enter the NZ job market because I had been away for so long. Then I found Cushla at PN Personnel. She endeavored to find a match for my skill set as well as a match for my personality. It wasn’t long before she found a temporary assignment at Plumbing World that has now turned into a permanent position and I couldn’t be more pleased.

Anyone can look at a CV and match it to a job posting, but Cushla has the ability to get to know the person behind the CV to make sure that she didn’t just find a job for me but that she found the right job for me. I recommend PN Personnel and Cushla in particular to help you find the right job for you, too!

 

Rindie

My experience with Palmerston North Personnel has been amazing. Moving from South Africa in November 2016, not knowing what to expect in our new country, not knowing how different the work environment would be. There was a light at the end of my uncertain tunnel, I was contacted by the PN Personnel team, there is an available temp position for me, I can start on the Monday. It was wonderful as I started finding my feet in a new country, new work environment and meeting new people.

And that was only the beginning. From a temporary position to a permanent position and placing me in different roles from data entry to walking the halls and grounds of Massey University. Christine, Robyn and the rest of the wonderful PN Personnel team, made my transition into a new work environment and home as smooth as possible and supported me through all the hardships a person can face finding your dream job.

This is a big thank you to the entire PN Personnel team and the great work they do to support their candidates.

Syed

It has been a great challenge for me to attain a desirable position in New Zealand (especially Palmerston North) that can accelerate my engineering career without a stop.

Walking down to PN Personnel was indeed the right decision, as it helped me to introduce myself to the NZ market and get familiarised with the work culture of the region.

I'm really impressed with the support that PN Personnel has always shown during all these months. I have finally been employed permanently in the engineering sector and it wouldn't have been easy without PN Personnel's support.

Employed By ANZCO Foods Rangitikei

Temporary Team Member, now Permanently Employed

I found PN Personnel great to work with, offering me the support I needed to get me into temporary work which lead to my permanent position.

The transition into permanent employment was seamless; it’s been a positive experience. Thank you PN Personnel  - I have found a job that is not only perfect but the team I work with are one in a billion.



Lynn

After 40+ years working for an organisation, being made redundant was devastating. I had applied for several jobs and for most didn't even receive an acknowledgment. I applied through PN Personnel, received a phone call from Cushla inviting me to an interview.

I went to the PN Personnel office feeling a little apprehensive. I walked through the door and my fear and anxiety was instantly put at ease.

Next I met Cushla and found myself in the most relaxed interview I have ever experienced. Thank you for making my journey back into a working role the most comfortable experience.

 

Kelsey

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.

 

Katherine

Employed By Property Brokers

Katherine

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!

 

Michelle

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!
