“We have worked with RecruitNZ on a number of occasions, and it has always been a positive experience for us. The whole process is seamless, with regular communication from the team right from start to finish. They deal with the initial applicant screening and setting up of interviews with our team through to dealing with the various government agencies. 

RecruitNZ takes real care about the placement of each individual, ensuring that both parties are the right fit for each other. This has resulted in us gaining employees who have fitted seamlessly into our team and are aligned to our purpose and values. The post placement follow up and support the team provide to both the employee and the business is fantastic!

I would highly recommend RecruitNZ to any other employer for their recruiting needs.”

Ashleigh Ludemann | People & Culture Lead – Te Pari Products

"We had been thinking about recruiting workers from overseas for some time but were reluctant, as we did not know what would be involved.

Partnering with People Inc was the best decision we made when we finally decided to recruit. The process was seamless from the start, we now have four very capable workers who have fit into our business with ease.

People Inc really do care about the placement of workers and want to make sure the fit works well for both parties. We highly recommend People Inc and will continue to partner with them to find more candidates as we increase our numbers in the future.”

Stephanie Olsen | General Manager – Site Weld NZ Ltd

"After chatting with a previous client of RecruitNZ, they recommended we use you to bring in much needed labour from the Philippines, as they had done the same previously.

We ended up working with you to bring in two new staff members and the whole process, from the beginning to the end, went mostly seamlessly. The only issue we had was the first person to be vetted ended up having an unforeseen medical problem that stopped him from emigrating. No one could have foreseen this.

From then on, things moved along smartly and efficiently, all your staff were great: very informed, and communicated with us well.

The two new team members have been brilliant: the vetting process ensured we got the right guys for the job. From day one, they clicked with the existing staff and have made a very positive impact on our business.

Before we engaged People Inc and RecruitNZ, we could not find any New Zealanders to fill the role: we advertised solidly for six months. RecruitNZ has met our expectations and more: great staff, great communication, and awesome resources to help us get through the process. We ended up with two really valued team members: they are very happy with us, and they have exceeded our expectations.

We will recommend RecruitNZ and have already done so to other businesses that were in the same situation as us.”
