My consultant was brilliant! Quick to communicate and made it very easy for me to understand the requirements of the role. She was always there to take my call and helped facilitate a tricky and unknown transition through a difficult time. Would highly recommend!

Rachel Alker I Application Analyst I April 2020

Throughout the process, Natalie has been transparent with me the entire way, explaining any prolonged times between interviews and keeping me in the loop in the process. I found this extremely helpful and helped remedy a lot of the anxiety that goes along with applying for employment somewhere. I absolutely would work with Natalie again in the future.

A.M. I Junior Business Intelligence Analyst I Feb 2020

Natalie is second to none with her attention to detail and care for her clients and candidates. She went over and above to help me secure a role in a new industry and earning top dollar. Natalie is a necessity if you’re in the market for new talent, or looking for a new role.

Katie Cheffings I Business Development Manager I July 2019

Overall recruitment process was really good, can't think of any improvements.

Nadun Ilamperuma I Senior Software Test Engineer I Jan 2020

Natalie was really clear about outlining the role. She's been great about keeping me informed while the customer was navigating their internal process to finalise the contract.

A.T. I Senior Business Analyst I Oct 2019

Natalie was introduced to me by another Partner in the Customise Talent team, Leanne Bell, whom I've known for many years. Natalie met with me to gain an understanding of the company and the role. She listened to what I needed, she gave me options without bombarding me; she then absolutely nailed in with the right candidate. The way I would describe Natalie is "right first time!"

Marie Boyle I CIO, ACG Education I August 2017

Natalie called me out of the blue about a new role that she thinks would be good for me and I was more than happy to know about it. She gave me a good background of the role's requirements which helped me in preparing for the interview. Natalie always kept me updated with the progress of the application. She was efficient and really great to deal with.

J.L. I Contract BA I Oct 2017

Natalie does a great job! Excellent communication and ongoing feedback. This is even better when you consider I am overseas in a totally different time zone and she kept the communication going including the interview with the client.

Christian Videla I Senior Business Analyst I Aug 2019

My first meeting with Natalie was as a candidate when I secured a PMO Manager role at Sanford who already had an established working relationship with her. I was impressed by Natalie's general service which included the rigorous screening of candidates. Natalie takes a one-on-one interest in both the client and the candidate, taking the time to understand and thereby seeking a match that works for both. Many other agencies take the "sausage factory" approach, which lacks that personal touch that Natalie demonstrates. I would have no hesitation in recommending Natalie's services to candidates and clients alike.

Neal Ramphal l PMO Manager l March 2017

In order to become a better, best, brilliant person, you can not only rely on yourself, the best way is to work closely, learn, share and discuss as much as you can from brilliant people, like my Customise consultant.

J.F. I Data Visualization Analyst I Sept 2018

Everything is excellent. My consultant (Natalie) worked for my best interest and produced the results faster than I would have expected.

A.P. I Data Analyst I Aug 2018

Natalie was always professional & kept me informed the whole way through the placement progress, despite it being a difficult time of year.

M.M. I Senior Database Administrator I Feb 2018

In my dealings with Natalie I have always been impressed; her service is customised, responsible and prompt. I would highly recommend Natalie's recruitment services and I will certainly be utilising them again in the future.

Pubudini Prasanna l Vocus Group l December 2016

I have worked with Natalie on a number of appointments and have been impressed by her dedication and ability to understand the requirements that I have had. As a hiring manager it makes a big difference when you are provided good quality candidates.

I will absolutely be utilising Natalie's services on future assignments.
