The admiration and respect I have for this team's professionalism, drive and motivation to find roles suited for everyone are indescribable.  They have, on multiple occasions work tirelessly to find me a job, usually at short notice leaving me with little or no stress to deal with and have always kept in contact to make sure the roles go well. I couldn't thank Shannon and the teams in Auckland and Sydney enough.

Shannon was great to deal with. I did not feel as though I was a candidate on her list making up numbers. The interview process was informative and the recruitment post-interview feedback/preparation points were great. I would use Shannon again in the future and will recommend her to others looking for roles.

I would like to make mention of your team in Chatswood for the way they handle our recruitment needs. I have been working with Shannon Barlow and Rachel Fisher for about two years now and I can say they are the best that I have dealt with. They have been providing us with quality people and they are very professional and passionate. I received today an audio reference for a candidate that we are considering and I really appreciate the style and method that the interview with the referee was conducted – doing it via recording gave an authentic and true feedback about the candidate. Rachel conducted it very well. Kudos to your team and more power to people2people!
