      “Recruit Personnel are easy, professional and friendly. I have dealt with a number of recruitment companies over the years and these guys just seem to grasp placing the right people in the right places. Trish is an absolute angel. She went above and beyond to find me the right candidate.”
      Emily Tomlinson, Filter Technology

      Thank you for the professional way I have been looked after.  I’ve never seen such a great organisation conduct the way you do.  I am so impressed with you and your team.  Thank you Trish.

      Just wanted to drop you a thank you for sending Greg to us.  Greg was here working in the warehouse for seven weeks to provide holiday relief.  He was quick to pick up the work and the computer program for processing.  The job entailed packing and unpacking stock, unloading and loading trucks with both a forklift and an overhead crane, which he mastered without effort, arranging freight and consignment notes for couriers.

      Greg was always on time and very diligent in his work.  Our warehouse has never been cleaner, he certainly was not afraid to pick up a broom.  If there wasn’t anything to do he found something to keep him busy.  Greg has been a pleasure to have here and it’s a pity we didn’t have further work to keep him here.

      “Recruit Personnel’s recruitment services can be best described as professional. From start to finish the process in recruiting Trainees for our business has been seamless and from our perspective an easy process where we can rely upon Recruit Personnel to meet our expectations in providing a shortlist of quality candidates for Life Without Barriers to interview and recruit from rather than undertaking the entire process ourselves. They offer ongoing support to both the Trainee and Management and work with us to ensure our expectations are being met. The provision of quality candidates who have now progressed onto a career pathway with Life Without Barriers. Without having these basic foundations within the quality candidates provided, we lack the opportunity of having Trainees grow within our business.”
      Nathan Reynolds - Asset Services Manager, Life Without Barriers
      “My experience with Recruit Personnel has been short and sweet. They have provided me support and training to further develop my skills and pursue my career in business. For the whole 12 months they have always been really approachable and friendly staff who will assist in any way. My experience with Recruit Personnel is a positive one and I am grateful for the nature in which they have supported me in particular. I would recommend this recruitment company to anyone looking to further develop their career or like me, had no idea what I wanted to do and now I am an Executive Assistant! Possibilities are endless. The standout aspect of the recruitment process was the wonderful people who assist you in obtaining a job. For me I was put on the right career path by the Recruitment Manager Trish Petersen, who has helped and supported me all throughout my 12 month traineeship to get me to where I am now.”
      Laura Harris, Life Without Barriers

      The thing I like most about utilising the services of Recruit Personnel is the access to staff also at late notice plus the communication and follow up on tasks.

      I would recommend anyone looking for staff to use Recruit Personnel, they are professional, friendly and source great applicants for the position.

      It has been an absolute pleasure working with them from their delightful receptionist, the consultant and management team.

      Highly recommend them.

      “Thank you Trish for all your help and assistance with finding this placement, as you know this was the first time I had carried out temp work and was a little unsure of how it all worked but you put my mind at ease.  The ability to contact you after hours was fantastic and was always met with a friendly & prompt response.  I will definitely recommend Recruit Personnel to anyone needing an employment agency.” 

      Kristy, Life Without Barriers

      Trish is a pleasure to work with and understands our business needs.
