What other people thought about the service from our Recruitment Studio team


What other people thought about the service from our Recruitment Studio team

Arriving back from a stint overseas can be daunting to say this least especially when the market was tight. Enter Bridgette, what a breath of fresh air to all the stale and straight recruiters out there. Bridgette’s positivity is incredibly infectious, peppered with grounding you to reality that is both constructive and supportive. I don’t regard heaps of people from the professional sphere as mates – but Bridgette takes the mantel – she and The Recruitment Studio have got something great going there – you certainly don’t feel like you’re being drilled or put on the spot – being relaxed and taken care of is fundamental when finding work can be a vulnerable time. I very much imagine this ethic and calibre of professionalism flows through no matter whether you’re a candidate or client – quality second to none!

Just wanted to say a big thank you for finding me this temp assignment that fits perfectly with my needs at the moment. From the first time I came in and met with both you and Jo I felt completely at ease. You were professional but also very friendly and easy going. You quickly saw my potential and understood my requirements. You remained in contact with me with regards to different roles and offered sound advice without pressure or judgment. Thank you again!

So great dealing with such professional and committed people. They really care about making sure the person and company ‘Fit’

It was such a pleasure to have such expertise assist LGFBNZ as we look to the future. Thank you Bridgette Johnstone and Linda Rouse for giving so many hours.  We are excited for 2020!

Bridgette is excellent at what she does. She is professional, friendly, and very supportive, listening to what I was looking for in a new role, even though I was reasonably happy with my current one. I love my new position, but most importantly I love the company I work for and the people I work with. I would never have looked twice at the role if it wasn’t for Bridgette, but she nailed it! I’m definitely coming back to Recruitment Studio (if I need to, that is!).

Jo and her team are incredibly responsive and seem to understand the role requirements very quickly.  Even working outside of the local market they managed to find great candidates in a short amount of time.  Very impressive and I would unreservedly recommend Recruitment Studio.

Recruitment Studio is one of the best I have come across. Your people skills are amazing, your attention to detail, thoroughness and proactive approach was outstanding. Your preparation and honest feedback were most appreciated. I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to meet a great team.
Best regards, Anita

I recently appointed a payroll specialist where I briefed Recruitment Studio on a Tuesday, interviewed her only candidate on a Thursday and hired the candidate by Friday.  Job done!

I had a great experience with Bridgette at Recruitment Studio. She took the time to know me, know my skills, and know my interests all whilst making the whole experience feel very warm, natural and comfortable. I am so excited about my new job that has resulted from this process and  I would not hesitate to recommend Bridgette and the Recruitment Studio to anyone.

Just wanted to say thanks for your support at Recruitment Studio. I found the temp contract placement at Rentokil Initial a wonderful experience, and you and your team were so supportive and helpful. I really appreciate your attitude and special touches, in what can be quite a stressful time. I am hoping to be in my new role for a decent amount of time and not need your services any time soon, but will certainly recommend you should the occasion arise.
Sarah – Happy Candidate

Jo has looked after my companies recruitment needs for over 15 years and we were very excited to hear she had setup the Recruitment Studio with Bridgette. The reason we use Jo is she takes the time to understand our business, culture and the requirements of a role. Our first placement from Recruitment Studio has settled and is going great and we look forward to working with Jo and her team into the future.

Bridgette made an otherwise stressful situation, a very stress-free and exciting experience. Having been with my previous company in Australia for 14 years, I was a little nervous about applying for a new job – especially given I was moving to a new country as well!
From the beginning, Bridgette made an effort to get to know me and ask me really pointed to questions to work out exactly what I wanted from my new role. She put me forward for an exciting role working with a very inspiring manager in Auckland and gave me the confidence to believe I was capable of landing it!
Bridgette kept me informed and held my hand through the process. I was so excited to get the role and Bridgette’s excitement when I got it was totally genuine. I am truly grateful to her for helping me get my foot in the door at an amazing company, and for all the support during the whole process.

It was such a pleasure to have such expertise assist LGFBNZ as we look to the future. Thank you Bridgette Johnstone and Linda Rouse for giving so many hours. We are excited for 2020!
Clare – Look Good Feel Better

The Recruitment Studio is a refreshing recruitment company that goes the extra mile for their clients, and favour a personal approach.

I was lucky to be picked a temping role, which then became permanent. I’m very grateful for their advice and support as I’m now in a role that I love

Bridgette has been partnering with me in the 4 different businesses I’ve been associated with for the last 10 plus years.  She’s my ‘go to’ recruitment partner because she just gets it.  She’s naturally commercial and inquisitive and so really gets her head into a business and a vacancy so as to provide a short list of top talent.

I was relieved at the ease of signing up to be a part of Recruitment Studio family.  I wish all agencies made things that simple and were that relaxed and frank!

Working through Recruitment Studio was an awesome easy experience. Bridgette helped me find my Dream job. Recruitment studio is amazing!”

I feel you are the only Agency that actually helped me get a new job, you kept me informed every step of the way of what was happening, you gave me developmental feedback on my interview techniques. You also helped me with interview questions, so I could go into the interview with confidence. My last point which is really important to me is you had my best interests at heart and I felt valued.

Interviewing with Bridgette didn’t feel like a test. She was just trying to get to know the real me, and my skills, and she’s very good at that!

Bridgette and her team at the Recruitment Studio were the ones to respond to my initial query, walk me through the entire process, answer all of my questions and, in the end, help me to end my lengthy search for my next job opportunity.

I’ve had the pleasure to work with Jo and Recruitment Studio on three recent hires. Jo exceeded our expectations in each of these instances. Her service was ultra-fast, very professional and she understood the meaning of being a true business partner. All three our candidates fitted into their roles and teams immediately. It was as if Jo knew how to “micro-fit” the person into their role. As a result, the candidates immediately made an impact. Jo is currently working on filling a fourth role for us and we look forward to building the relationship with Recruitment Studio even further.

“Heather at Recruitment Studio absolutely smashed it for us. She took the time to understand our company, our culture, who would do well in this role and put forward several exceptional candidates that all would have worked out great. Of the bunch, she found us one particular candidate who has been a seamless integration to our team already, it’s as if she’s been working here for years. If there were placement of the year awards, it would go to Heather”
Shawn – Oculus Ltd

Working with Jo & Bridgette at Recruitment Studio was a great experience. I knew they genuinely cared about getting the right fit for me which wasn’t always the experience I had with past agencies. They considered what was going to work well for me – skillset and culture-wise and I really appreciate all their help.
