Owner | Felice Coiffure Salon

Tanya has an amazing wealth of knowledge in her industry and was a huge benefit to me in this stressful time…
I am the owner of a Hairdressing Salon which has been in the family for some 35 years. It is a small suburban salon with myself and 1 senior hairdresser working in the business, after 8.5 years my senior stylist decided to leave. Not having to have dealt with having to employ staff for some time it became obvious that I was out of my depth, (great hairdresser hopeless in recruiting).

Having had Tanya as a client, I called her in a panic, she met with me immediately she could hear the panic in my voice, and took over asking several questions where upon I answered no to most of them, do I have an employment contract, do I have a description of the vacant job, do I have the advertising in place and if so where and so on and so on.

As I am a small business and do not have the excess funds to spend on recruitment, Tanya was upfront and discussed my cost options. I decided to use Recruit NZ’s unbundled service as opposed to end to end recruitment to save on the costs. Tanya created an advertisement, she listed it for me in all the right places, monitored it on a weekly basis, and assisted in creating the necessary Employment Agreements, Letter of Offer and all other relevant documentation required to employ staff in today’s environment.

Tanya was unbelievable, she kept me updated, constantly checking everything was going ok, and even when I got a bit down because the right person seemed hard to find, she explained the process to me again, assuring me that it was normal. Tanya has an amazing wealth of knowledge in her industry and was a huge benefit to me in this stressful time. Knowing that you had someone like Tanya there supporting you and sending through all the right information is hugely important.

I wouldn’t hesitate to use her again, in fact I would recommend that all small businesses make it part of their business plan to book a meeting with Tanya once or twice a year to go over any changes that we would need to know about, ensuring that we have all the right documentation and rules updated for employing staff.
Thanks so much Tanya for all your support.
