Testimonials

Marcus Morrison

CEO, Zagga & Director, K3

“Carol got to the heart of what my business was seeking to achieve and set about working with me to build an entire marketing function. This goes well beyond what most service providers would consider the normal transaction. She genuinely understood where the business was, what our unique proposition was, and how we wanted to deliver to the market into the future. She then used a combination of advertising and active search to find me exactly the right people, all the while ensuring that every candidate arrived prepped and ready for an interview, genuinely excited about the potential to join our team. I am impressed by Carol’s candour, professionalism, proactivity, and sense of fun. Quite frankly, if you need results and you want a well-managed painless process, then you’d be mad not to use her.”

“I have worked with Carol on recruiting the right people for our business for over six years; she has never let us down. Carol has a unique talent for not only understanding our business needs for a specific role, but also making it easy to do business with her. Employing the right people is essential, getting it wrong can be costly. Trusting someone to get it right is critical and I have complete trust in Carol.”

“Carol is a top-notch recruitment business partner. She possesses a deep knowledge of the local recruitment market and is also very engaging, dependable and high in integrity. The amount of care and passion she puts into each brief is unprecedented. I really value her ability to listen and quickly identify what our business needs but also ask questions and push back if she feels that someone is not right for the business. She is very effective at what she does.”

“I have had the pleasure of working with Carol across a number of assignments for almost 10 years and on each occasion it has been a rewarding and positive experience. Understanding the intricacies of our business along with the diversity of our people is what makes Carol so great – she’s professional, trustworthy and transparent. The fact that a number of candidates have remained with our company speaks volumes about Carol’s skill in matching the right candidate to the job.”

HR Manager NZ

“I met Carol when I was looking for a career change in 2011. She helped me find the right role to grow my career. I’ve since kept in touch with Carol to regularly discuss labour market trends and I was always look for opportunities to work together. An opportunity arose recently and Carol’s expertise was really valuable. Our employees enjoyed her experience and advice on career transitions, training on new recruitment tools and extensive knowledge of the labour market. Carol’s combination of knowledge and experience, as well as her professional and friendly approach, are her trade mark.”

Senior HR/L&D Lead
Oceania Healthcare

“I’ve known Carol for a long time and have had the opportunity to work with her both as an employer and a candidate. Carol quickly gets what you are looking for and puts forward quality candidates. She won’t put forward candidates just to make up the numbers. She has a great sense of humour, is always a pleasure to work with her and I would not hesitate to recommend her.”

 

 

Phil McManus

Service Delivery and Business Development Manager
Datacom

“When I was made redundant, my previous employer offered the assistance of Carol. She helped me put together a professional-looking CV and write cover letters. She also provided interview prep tips and lots of coaching. Carol supported me through this stressful time and her hard work wasn’t in vain – I landed a new position with NZ’s largest IT services company, Datacom. I would recommend Carol to anyone looking for employment, especially if you’re having to go through a similar redundancy process.”

Community Engagement Executive
Spirit of Adventure Trust

“From the very first time I spoke with Carol, I could hear her genuuine interest in understanding my application.  She has an innate ability to communicate and connect with others and ensure everything is running smoothly; throughout the whole process she kept in touch regularly with me.

I’ve found her warm, friendly, professional and through and would recommend her to any prospective client.”

 

 

Amber Cooke

Marketing and Communications Manager

Ford Motor Company of New Zealand

“After spending the best part of two decades working for one company, moving on was always going to be a journey.  I met Carol nearly 10 years ago and knew she wasn’t like other recruiters.  She took the time to get to know me by asking appropriate questions.  Throughout the years I haven’t spoken to any recruiters who made me feel like Carol, knowing she wouldn’t put me forward for just any job, but the right job and fit.

Her guidance throughout the process was invaluable. She made it less daunting to have someone as a sounding board and kept me updated at every step.

I couldn’t recommend Carol more highly, for spending the time to get to know me, where my strengths and weaknesses were and ultimately placing me in the right fit for me.  If you don’t just want any job, but the one where it’s as right for you as you are for it, then Carol is the only recruiter you should contact.”

 

 

Jo Lawton

Marketing  Communications Manager

Spirit of Aventure Trust

“I have known Carol for many years, having first met her back in 2012.  She stood out back then and it was fantastic news when she started her own business, Fraser People, and could set out to do things different for both clients and candidates.

I have been watching her business develop and have been impressed with her approach. Then I reached out to Carol to let her know I was available and looking for something different.  My conversations with Carol have always been open, honest and direct with a big helping of humour and connection.  At a time when I was losing faith in recruitment companies, she turned that around ….. effortlessly.

I recommend Carol if you are a candidate or business looking to recruit someone, she has vast knowledge and a great network.  If you want someone who understands you or your business and will work with you as you want to work, then talk to Fraser People.”

 

 

Anne Read

Board Chair

Hohepa Trust

“We were looking for the General Manager that could lead our charity from a pioneering organisation to the next stage of growth and change.  We had been unsuccesful previously – with a poor result.

Carol was referred to us by word of mouth and met with our Board representatives, visited our community to get an idea of who we are and what we wanted, walked with us through the process and kept us fully updated at all times.

Carol was successful in finding us the General Manager we required.  Her professionalism and support through the process was brilliant and I wouldn’t hesitate to use her service again and recommend her.”

 

 

Samantha Kidson

Remarketing Coordinator

Ford Motor Company of New Zealand

“What a pleasure dealing with Carol, she is amazing.  She is so professional and you can tell straight away that it is important to her to place her candidates in the right role.

Since she placed me in my role she has maintained contact by checking in with me and the company to ensure a successful transition on both sides.  A rare and professional person in the recruitment industry.  My experience has been wonderful.  Highly recommend.”
