Recruitment Expertise

FEE FOR PLACEMENT – pay a 15% fee calculated on total remuneration.

RETAINED ASSIGNMENT – pay a 15% fee calculated on total remuneration in 3 equal installments.

FEE FOR SERVICE – Control your costs with a fixed fee on each hire.  We have a package to suit your role and needs.

HOURLY RATE RECRUITMENT – In times of peak or surge recruitment let us lighten the load with an agreed hourly rate. Use your in-house recruitment system and media channels or use ours. We’ll work with you when and how you need us.

Hiring the wrong person is costly. Skill, personality and cultural fit as well as workplace behaviours are all critical to getting it right. With our dedicated reference checking service you get fast-turnaround and unbiased reporting so you can hire with confidence. Conducted personally by our team of recruitment professionals, we tailor the questions to fit the interviewing process.

Ensure your recruitment process is robust and documented with our thorough background checks. We’ll check your candidate’s right to work in New Zealand, that qualifications meet those required by governing bodies as well as perform Ministry of Justice, Credit and Driver License checks.

Is your recruitment process outdated? Does it take too long to hire so you miss out on great candidates? Do you need to overhaul to ensure a great candidate journey? Let us help you design or re-design your process so your candidates are engaged and enthused at every step of the recruitment journey.

Alongside our testing partner, we offer a variety of tests to help create a full and robust picture of your preferred applicant. Coupling psychometric assessments with interviews and reference checks lets you make an informed decision. If you’re unsure about a candidate’s behaviours or want to confirm your choice, our tests will show you the inner workings of your candidate and help ensure you’ve got the full picture.  Psychometric assessment is a tool, not a decision maker, so we’ll interpret and guide you on how to use testing to make the best decision.


With years of industry experience (and a few degrees to back it up) our experts can help you navigate and understand the process. We put the human back in Human Resources.
