Fujitsu NZ - Urgent Temporary Employees

I have worked successfully with Cushla at Palmerston North Personnel for a number of years now.

I come back to Cushla when we are stuck, and I don’t make it too easy for her as we have already exhausted our networks of Info Tech people. When I do contact Palmerston North Personnel I want good quality people for short-term or temporary IT roles.

We have a complex business with a wide range of clients and often the employees we get from Cushla have also had working knowledge of our clients – which helps.

Cushla and I have a good relationship as Cushla has provided us good quality people, at short notice. And its good that if she can’t supply we know that too.

Cushla is energetic in her approach and I know the “temps” like the regular contact and follow-up we receive from Cushla.

Toyota New Zealand Warehouse

Toyota New Zealand has a busy modern warehouse and we use Temporary Employees to manage high workloads to support our Permanent Employees. It’s really effective with Cushla screening high numbers of good people to get down to the “superstars” all while we carry on working – it's quick, reduces our downtime and is efficient.

I approached Palmerston North Personnel when I was looking for work myself and found Robyn was very responsive and professional. I was contacted quickly and not too long after I had two job interviews through Palmerston North Personnel. I was offered a suitable temporary role shortly afterwards – this seamlessly rolled into a fixed-term contract with the same employer.

Having already successfully worked with Robyn, it was easy to work with her again when I needed some temporary employees to add to my team. I gave Robyn my role specifications and I quickly received a shortlist of suitable CV’s and from the choices provided, identified and hired some good temporary employees.

I find Robyn responsive, professional, personable and I have had great results both as a job seeker and as a manager of people.

I recently worked with Cushla Brasell from Palmerston North Personnel as we were in a bind with our Sport Manawatu communications role. We needed someone fast.

I was really pleased we were able to quickly fill the void with a quality temporary employee.

Our temporary employee is going great guns, as well as being good at what she does, she is a regular face in our office and integrates well with our team.

After finding my position through Palmerston North Personnel, it’s easy to know where to go for help with recruitment when we need it.

Palmerston North Personnel provided us a temporary employee as a minute taker and they were really good, The Temporary Employee drove from Wanganui and took the minutes for our meeting in New Plymouth. This particular meeting is often difficult to take minutes for. The really pleasing thing was their minutes were delivered quickly and were really good quality.

I think you did very well at short notice and I believe Christine solved our problem quickly - in about 24 hours from memory. This was a big relief!

This took a big load off me during a time I have a busy workload and really saved me time!

By having the New Plymouth meeting covered it free-ed me up for other projects. Going from Palmerston North to New Plymouth is an entire day when I am busy planning award nights.

I just wanted to express my appreciation for Robyn's ongoing support in finding us the right people with the right skill mix and experience to work and support our teams across the service.

We are so lucky to have the three temps that we have now with our teams and not having to go through the recruitment process – as we all know the recruitment process takes a lot of your time. I am pleased to say that the three temps are extremely competent and enjoy working in the areas they are assigned to. We are pleased to be able to offer one temp permanent employment and thank you for your support in this. We look forward to offering the other temps the same in the near future.

Thanks again for your support.

Palmerston North Personnel has provided short and longer term temporary staff cover several times to NZX Agri over the past few years. I've always been impressed by the high quality candidates put forward for all these roles and we've often employed the successful applicant on a permanent contract following the temporary cover period.

I'd have no hesitation in recommending Palmerston North Personnel to other employers looking for staff. The company offers a fast, efficient and high quality service.

Our firm has worked with Palmerston North Personnel to find short term contractors a number of times over the last few years and have found their service to be excellent.

I have learned that it is invaluable to use their pool of already screened and considered candidates and especially for short term staff, the extra cost of using their service more than pays for itself in terms of not having to engage in employment law contracts and the ease of managing the relationship with the contractor. Not to mention no PAYE and administration costs!

Christine has been wonderful to work with and is always professional and cheerful. In our last engagement we had the occasion to find Christine out of the office - an email to her colleague had our needs sorted and a contractor in place within a couple of hours.

The candidates we have worked with from Palmerston North Personnel have done a great job for us and have been very well suited to the position.

Palmerston North Personnel have always sorted our needs and been hassle free to work with and I would recommend them to anyone.

We have been working with Christine at Palmerston North Personnel for some time now – because Christine knows what we want she looks after us very well.

Christine has kept getting it “bang on”. If Christine send us someone for a Temporary role it’s about 98% certain we will hire them. We have often taken the Temporary Employees onto Permanent roles.

We find “temping” works for our business. While we find the “temps” have enjoyed their roles we benefit from quickly filling staff shortages and have even kept some as permanent employees.

Christine has saved us the downtime in searching and has found some good people for us – it works! That’s why we come back.

I’m happy to talk about Palmerston North Personnel’s service – I am really happy with the quality service from Robyn.

Palmerston North Personnel provided us with very high quality people to choose from – this really stood out. Not only was the skill level high, so was the work ethic of the people Palmerston North Personnel presented to us.

Robyn has taken away the hassle of finding quality staff at short notice – it was all taken care of – no lost time sourcing people and just no pressure!

In May 2016 Enable New Zealand contacted Palmerston North Personnel when we secured an additional contract providing services across New Zealand. We urgently needed 6x Customer Service Facilitators for a 6 month fixed-term to work on our Hearing Aid Management Service starting in July!

“We interviewed and employed people who are just like our current team – they have natural empathy and feel the intrinsic rewards of providing support services for less fortunate people.”

Cushla found a team of customer-focused people for a 6 month fixed-term that have the ability, motivation, commitment and “the fit” we look for in permanent employees – I really didn’t expect that!

When we needed someone to quickly fill a vacancy in our finance team, Palmerston North Personnel came straight to mind. Within a very short space of time, Christine found us the perfect candidate. We have been so happy with our ‘temp’, that she is now working for us permanently and has become a valuable member of our team.

The service from Palmerston North Personnel has been excellent for both my new colleague and myself as the employer. Christine is extremely professional and helpful and it was a lovely surprise to have morning tea delivered when the contract was complete.

I would definitely use Palmerston North Personnel again.

This is the first time in 30 years in business that we have used an employment agency and Robyn has made it very easy.

Highly recommended.

When our HR Advisor left us in April this year Palmerston North Personnel was recommended by a Senior Consultant in Auckland. My first point of contact was with the Client Manager at Palmerston North Personnel who asked all the key questions and then directed me to Christine.

The process from start to finish has been seamless, professional and well supported by everyone I have had contact with. 

The Client Manager was well informed, knew the right questions to ask at the right time and came up with good outcomes.

Christine with whom I have had the most contact had a selection of candidates, recommending 2 that would meet the criteria I had set. We were unsure whether we wanted a "temp" vs a "contractor" and Christine and I worked through this with ease. We selected our contractor who started with us on 3 April (4 days after our initial communication with Palmerston North Personnel) and who I am delighted to say has agreed to stay with us permanently. So thank you all in finding a gem. The experience has been painless and the quality consistent.
