Let’s not kid ourselves. Finding, and crucially, acquiring, talent in New Zealand isn’t easy. That’s why we exist, to make your life easier so you can concentrate on your core business, whatever that may be.
With over 50 years of local industry experience, and even more in global markets, we have some of the best networks in the business.
But our team of permanent recruitment experts don’t stop there. They look far and wide for talent, searching in every conceivable place to ensure you always know you’ve seen the best people possible. Our talent pool extends beyond active job seekers to a valuable base of candidates who aren’t actively looking for work, presenting you with more great options to fill your vacancy.
As you’d expect from a market leader, our recruitment processes are robust, but they’re also flexible.
We know no two organisations are the same, so we specifically design a recruitment process that covers everything you need. Searching, advertising, screening, assessments, interviewing, reference and background checking; we’ve got you covered. And if you only want help with parts of your recruitment process, we can offer a range of unbundled services to suit your needs.
Our comprehensive New Zealand database contains thousands of skilled and pre-qualified candidates. Due to the quality of this data this is always our first port of call when it comes to search.
We know that the best talent always knows other great talent. That's why we're always running ongoing referral programmes that are designed to increase the size of our talent pool.
We live in a digitally connected society. Our team are all armed with the most up to date social sourcing strategies, allowing them to engage and attract the best of the best.
Lastly, for roles where New Zealand has scarce supply we’ve got the largest network of international offices in the world with over 32,000 recruiters working to find you the best talent.
You only get one chance to make a great first impression. It’s vital to project a clear and consistent message from day one. Luckily we know exactly how to do this.
First, we couple your company with our industry leading brand profile, market presence and buying power to give you far greater value for your advertising spend.
Then we ensure your advert is placed in the right place to be seen by the right people. We do this by providing you with access to all local and national industry journals and magazines, and offer our discounted rates directly to you.
Let’s be honest, reviewing and replying to numerous job applications takes time. Our team of expert recruiters does this day in day out. This means we know what to look for and can significantly reduce the amount of time you need to invest in the recruitment process.
We can handle this process for you, managing job advert responses, screening candidates against your criteria and shortlisting those who are suitable. We even take away the awkward but essential process of responding to unsuccessful candidates.
Skills and aptitude testing can be a difficult and complicated process, so why go through all that yourself? Our unique candidate assessment system, Xpert, is based on our expertise in over 70 countries and developed in partnership with leading academic and professional testing experts. Xpert not only measures skills, but also candidate motivation and compatibility with your organisational culture, along with any other needs specific to your vacancy.
Whatever your HR requirements, an Xpert solution is available. Whether you are hiring office, professional or industrial staff, Xpert assessments can assist. It’s a free service and simply part of what we do.
If you are looking for more in depth psychometric assessments and profiling, we can provide this for you too.
Interviewing, it’s what we do best. Our team are all trained to find out everything there is to know about people. So no matter the quality of the application or level of recommendations they will always remove the imposters from the mix leaving you with the cream of the crop.
Every potential candidate is put through a comprehensive behavioural based interview to evaluate the key competencies that determine a high performer in the role, such as drive and motivation. Plus, we obviously always screen for the usual skills and background information.
Still unsure about a candidate or just keen to dot every i and cross every t? Never fear, we reference check every single person before they join your organisation. In addition, we can also conduct background checks and verify qualifications, licences and tickets on your behalf.
