What clients say about our Recruitment Services

I engaged Nikki at Business By Design to recruit a number of staff during 2014-2015. In every instance Nikki was able to find excellent candidates and ensured we used a comprehensive and highly systematic process that meant nothing gets left to chance. Getting the right people on the bus is priority # 1 in any business and we highly recommend Business By Design to assist you in this task.”  John Plunkett | Dealer Principal | Three Rivers Machinery ~ December 2015.

 

“Quality Accounting engaged Business By Design to recruit a new administrative assistant in October 2015. I was able to confidently delegate the entire process and the successful candidate is nothing short of outstanding. As a consequence I have re-engaged Business By Design to recruit a senior accountant. Nikki & Sean have a highly structured process that we couldn’t replicate internally and it has ensured my staff and I can focus on our clients and not be disturbed by this crucial but time and resource hungry task.”  Fiona Jeff | Director |Quality Accounting ~ January 2016

 

 “We had never used a professional recruiter before. We chose to engage Nikki as we were recruiting an executive position that was integral to our business future and she came highly recommended. I found the whole process easy and stress free. Nikki did all the leg work, came to me with a shortlist, comprehensive interview questions and the job profiling of the candidates was very comprehensive. I am delighted with our new recruit  and would recommend Nikki’s recruitment services, especially if you are looking for the perfect person for your business”  Dean Russell | CEO | NSW Touch Football Association ~ July 2016

 

“It was a good experience. Took a lot of stress out of the process of finding the right person to fit into our business. We thought it might have taken longer and are pleased it didn’t. Nikki did a great job and we would definitely recommend using Business By Design to recruit the right person to suit your business. Very happy!” Michael Lamont | Director | Resource Design & Management ~ November 2016
