"Thanks to Kevin and his team I have been placed in a great job that will utilise all my skills in the Trade industry. Without his assistance this would never have happened. The whole thing was fast and efficient and very professional. I recommend his skills to anyone who is serious about looking for work."

Trade Support Candidate - Building Merchant, Kumeu

"It has been twelve months since you found our new staff member Glenn. I was very specific when we spoke about the candidate we were looking for. You responded saying it was going to be difficult but you would come up with someone for me. Within a week you had two candidates for me and advised who you thought was best. We interviewed Glenn and he started with us two weeks later. Can I say we have been absolutely stoked. Glenn has integrated well and bought a new freshness to our company. What’s more is that our profitability is up. Glenn recently celebrated one year with us and we hope to have him on board for many more years. All the best Jenny and thanks again."

Director - Architecture Client, Auckland

"Jenny contacted me regarding a role within the building industry, which I ultimately succeeded in getting. Jenny was one of the best recruiters I have ever had the pleasure to deal with, being incredibly honest, enthusiastic and supportive during what was a very quick process, 3 days from initial call to the offer of employment. Having worked with recruiters before I found Jenny unique in that the process was very much two way, not only seeking information from me but providing ongoing advice, support and feedback at all stages. Her passion for what she does and commitment to finding the right person for her clients is obvious, along with her real pleasure at finding a match. She is dedicated, prompt to follow up, and genuinely a lovely person to speak with. What I am also incredibly thankful for is her ability to see something in me that aligned well with her client, which resulted in me getting a role I personally thought may have been a long shot for me, given the size of Auckland's talent pool."

Commercial Project Manager Candidate - Auckland

"I have just successfully signed an excellent contract after working with Jenny from building recruitment for the past 6 weeks. I cannot recommend highly enough Jenny and the team from Building Recruitment. From the outlay it was clear I was dealing with a professional dedicated company and in no time I had multiple interviews to attend and ended up with my choice of companies to work with. Jenny helped in many ways not only with interview preparation but tweaking the CV and providing many career opportunities not advertised on the likes of "seek" but found within her extensive network."

New Home Consultant Candidate - Home Construction Group, Manawatu

"Upon stumbling across an advertisement online that attracted my attention to the building industry, I contacted Jenny from Building Recruitment to see what opportunities she had available. She proceeded to interview me, and present me with various opportunities that matched my skills set and requirements for my next challenging career step. I was highly impressed by her level of professionalism, and her attention to detail. She briefed me exceptionally well on the opportunities available, and also the history and culture of the companies she was representing. She explained the team dynamics, the challenges and opportunities of each company with honesty and transparency, as she saw them. I believe it was her open honesty and genuine ability to read and understand both my career aspirations – and also that of the company she was seeking to recruit for, that was a key factor in creating the perfect match for a long term working relationship. I was exceptionally impressed with her genuine desire to meet all parties' needs, and she kept in constant communication to ensure I was content with the progression of due diligence happening on both sides. At all times, Jenny ensured there was transparency throughout the process, and followed up regularly after my appointment. Without hesitation, I would highly recommend Building Recruitment Ltd, and the outstanding service I enjoyed from Jenny Parker. Thank you for choosing me for this amazing role and opportunity, and thank you for making the process so smooth and seamless."

"Thanks for your time and energy. I really enjoyed working with you and appreciate you getting me in front of your client. Kevin really moved the pieces around the board nicely and quickly honed into my passion for residential building. You really turned a light on today with your questioning, (certainly far better than any recruiter I have dealt with) uncovering where I need to be, and it is clearer, given my passion for residential building, this is where I should be looking."

Most of my dealings have been with Kevin however Amanda and I did some work together also on the recruitment of one of our Quantity Surveyors. BR have completed work on two hires for me to date with both candidates proving out to be good quality candidates. I am very pleased with the working relationship that i have with Keven and BR and hold BR in high regard for their promptness, ease of communication and recruitment completion processes in general. I found the quality of the candidate information gathered by BR to be most helpful. I find the working relationship to be business friendly and would not hesitate to recommend BR to any other business.

"I am so impressed with the service from Kevin!"

A. Vorster - International Candidate

"I'm very impressed with your service, it was nice to actually have a proper conversation with a recruitment agent as well as getting to the bottom of things. I’m sure you’ll go a long way in the industry. And regardless of what happens with my own circumstances from now on and into the future, it is a nice little reminder in life on how far a simple phone conversation can go, even when most would say it’s a waste of time, or a full blown conclusion just because I’m already working. People remember top quality service, regardless of the result, and you just never know when they may call back!"

S. Davidson - Candidate

"The best recruitment team for the best candidates and employers! Thanks Jenny and your recruitment team. No matter what level you are, Junior, Intermediate or Senior level.

I'm a Quantity Surveying candidate and Jenny is the most patient, the most helpful and the kindest recruitment agent I have ever met. I have got lots of career advice from Jenny to help me move to next level of my career. There is nothing more I can say than Just Awesome!"

Howard - Graduate Candidate

"I would like to offer some words of praise for one of your staff members . I recently required the services of a recruiter and I contacted Jenny Parker, your Recruitment Manager. Jenny first rang me nearly 3 years ago and has kept in touch inquiring about my work situation from time to time . When I did need the advice of a recruiter, Jenny was the first person I though of. She quickly arranged a meeting at a convenient location and over a cup of coffee she heard my story and showed total empathy to my situation. She tuned in to my requirements and immediately offered some options for me to consider. She advised me to review my CV and promptly arranged an interview with an appropriate company. The interview went very well and Jenny has now negotiated the terms of the package to make the position totally acceptable for me. I also appreciate the urgency and efficiency Jenny brought to the table to find me the correct role and company."

Andy - Candidate

“I responded to a Building Recruitment advertised role, unsure what to expect, I received a response to my expression of interest very quickly, and was greeted with a warm and friendly Jenny. Jenny was very in touch with what her clients desired in a new recruit, and was sure to listen to what I was after from a new company also, Jenny paired my transferable skills and personality to a company that I could only have dreamed of becoming a part of. Jenny made the process a total breeze, the constant updates and communication made me feel very at ease and gave me such confidence in securing a new role. I loved the whole process and am very appreciative of Jenny’s efforts.”
