I managed to secure an interview with one of the lovely recruitment consultants after applying for a role advertised by Able, and within two weeks I was being interviewed for another position that Able suggested to me.  Very professional, easy-going and genuine recruitment agency!  I highly recommend applying for the jobs they advertise and working with them in general if you are trying to land a job - exceptional service!

Tania - Jobseeker, Aug 2022

I met with both Hollie and Jaegan regarding several potential positions and found them both to be very approachable and professional with a clear understanding of their clients needs.  It wasn’t long before they had narrowed down a role that suited my skill set, supported my goals and would provide benefit to their client.

From the initial meeting through to the hiring process and the continued ongoing support and calls to check if there was anything else they can do, these people are absolute superstars!  In fact the whole team have been so helpful and lovely to deal with.  Service is definitely their speciality!  I’m loving my role and learning some additional skills along the way.  So pleased I met with these wonderful people.  I can’t recommend them highly enough…Thanks Able Personnel.

Anna - Jobseeker, Aug 2022

I can't speak highly enough of Hollie, from understanding and knowing her clients brief to reading me like a book and knowing which role would be the best fit for me, Hollie is an ABSOLUTE star.  Hollie had a very thorough knowledge of her clients needs and was clear about why she was putting me forward for the relevant roles.  I felt comfortable discussing my needs and wants regarding future employment and Hollie was considerate and insightful in helping me with the interview process.  I was offered two roles after successful interviews and had a job offer within one week.  Thanks again Hollie, I'm hoping to have a rewarding career ahead of me and I'll be referring people who are looking at employment opportunities your way!

Jobseeker, Nov 2021

I just wanted to thank you for all you have done in finding somebody for our administrative role, I am beyond delighted but I also think the person we hired through Able will be awesome and fit in really well.

There is quite a bit that goes into finding somebody beyond just the skill set (although I now appreciate that is necessary), so thank you so much.  I have enjoyed working with Able and will use you again and definitely recommend others to use the same process – it's been an interesting journey.

It has now been 3 months since my big move from Auckland to Hawkes Bay and I just wanted to touch base to say a big thank you to you and the team at Able Personnel for helping me secure not just employment but one that was a good fit with my goals and career path. It has certainly made my move a lot easier knowing that I had such a competent team looking after my employment options.

From the very first contact when I called to register on your database right through to my employment placement and after, I have been really impressed with the professionalism, friendliness and responsiveness displayed by everyone I dealt with at Able Personnel. I think the people you have at Able Personnel and the experience they bring are beyond compare and I would highly recommend your services to anyone looking for employment or looking to employ. Once again thank you for all your support and I look forward to catching up again soon.

Kind regards

Charie Bowgett

“We were very happy with the service that you (and Able) have provided. The quality of candidates introduced were of a higher calibre than we anticipated. You were open and approachable and made the process very smooth and easy. We wanted the position filled quickly and Able Personnel assisted in that goal and you actively sought candidates from outside of Able’s existing database. We would use Able Personnel again and will happily recommend your services to other businesses.”

Many thanks

Mel & Rob Douglas, Added Valuation Limited

We recently employed the services of Able Personnel to assist us in our search for a new office/accounts person. Our decision to use a recruitment agency was mostly based on the need to find someone with the right qualifications for the role quickly, and not having available time to see to the entirety of the recruitment process.

After enlightening Able to the person we were seeking, Able advertised the position, met with the applicants, and then sent us a number of CVs so we could get a feel for the prospective employees and their skill sets. In preparation for the CVs, Able compiled reports from referees that had been contacted on our behalf, and required the applicants to complete skills tests relevant to the position. Since these tests and the results are quantifiable, we were able to compare the different applicants against each other and see who we believed to be the most skilled and suitable. From these CVs we then chose a number of people to interview.

Although this number was relatively small, it was still arduous and time consuming, and we were grateful that Able had done most of the ‘donkey work’ for us. It really was about finding the person with the right ‘fit’ for our company, which we believe we have done, and our new office person is settling in well. Throughout this process, communication was good via both emails and calls from Able to keep us up to date with progress on recruitment. Sonya was spot on with her recommendations and we found her to be a straight shooter which we appreciated. We would recommend Able to anyone requiring new employees. It takes all the hassle out of recruitment and Able weeds out the ‘tyre-kickers’ for you. We would definitely use Able Personnel again.
