Our core objectives are to achieve your employment related goals, strive to exceed your expectations and have some fun on the journey. Below are what a few of our clients and candidates have to say about partnering with us.

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.

Matthew Hopkins I Development Lead

Natalie is one of the most capable and professional recruiters I have worked with in my 8 years of using recruiters to fill IT roles. Natalie listens, articulates well and delivers what you ask for.

Jackie Clark | Project Manager at NZTech / Techweek

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

Communication was excellent throughout the process. This is something so many consultants fail on, but Natalie was superb.

Catherine Lupton l Test Analyst

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 Sanford NZ

Natalie is an experienced IT recruiter who has sourced a number of candidates for our business. I have complete confidence in her understanding our need and presenting only relevant, suitable candidates. Natalie pushes hard and perseveres even when her client is often hard to pin down! My engagement with Natalie is always a pleasure, she is personal, focused and consistent and we appreciate the little touches like sending a cake on the candidate's first day. I will absolutely be utilising Natalie's services on future assignments.

Chris Williams l Head of IT l Sanford NZ

Natalie is helpful and informative in the IT industry. She has a broad knowledge of the business and a deep understanding of the technologies and the technical detail.
She is wonderful to deal with in this professional area.

Stanley Wang l Data Warehouse Developer

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.
