HOURLY RATE RECRUITMENT – Got peak or surge recruitment, let us take the load with an agreed hourly rate. Use your in-house recruitment system and media channels or ours. Whatever you need we’ll work with you when and how you need.

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.

Make sure you have a robust, documented employment process. Let us make it easy. We’ll check the candidate you’ve chosen has the preferred rights to work in New Zealand; that  qualifications meet those required by any governing bodies and that Ministry of Justice, Credit or Driver checks are carried out.

Is your recruitment process outdated? Are you taking too long to hire and losing great candidates? Is it time for an overhaul to ensure a great candidate journey? Let us help you to design or re-design the process and keep your candidates engaged and enthused at every step.

Alongside our testing partner, we’re able to perform a variety of tests to help create a full and robust picture on your preferred applicant. Coupling psychometric assessments with interviews and reference checks, you’ll be able to make an informed decision. If you’re unsure about a candidate’s behaviour, our testing suite allows you to see the inner workings of your candidate and ensure you’re being told the full story. Psychometric assessment is a tool, not a decision maker, and we’ll interpret and guide you on how to use the testing appropriately in the recruitment process.
