"We had been searching for someone fabulous to join our team in an Audit capacity for 6 month with no luck. We approached Karen and within 24 hours she had found our perfect candidate! Needless to say .... Amazing! Her connections and approach meant that we were able to fill our role in no time. She kept us up to date with the process throughout and I must say she provided probably the best service I have ever had from a recruiter! Thanks Karen."
Tarryn van Niekerk Human Resources Manager at Harvey Norman NZ
"It was a pleasure working with Karen on the recent placement of a candidate. Karen is very professional, efficient, and prepared to go the extra mile to meet our recruiting needs. Karen is also very good at identifying candidates who fit well with our culture, as was the case on this occasion. The whole recruitment process was very straightforward and trouble free, from the initial contact regarding the candidate, setting up interviews, running reference checks, to signing off the agreement. Since the placement, Karen has continued to follow up with the candidate and our HR department to ensure a smooth induction into the firm. We are delighted with our new team member and will certainly continue to work with Karen to meet our future recruitment needs."
Kath Tuckey Business Manager at RSM
"Over my professional years I have used a number of recruitment agencies. There are only a small number that I would come back and use again and Karen would be up in the top of those agencies. She heard my brief, understood my needs and my firm and gave me the candidates that I wanted to talk to."
Andrew Ford Owner at MFA Ltd
"We’ve all had recruiters promise everything and deliver very little ‘we know your business, we know what you want, we have a list of people just looking for jobs like this’. The reason most have a list is because those people are normally unemployable and they are just looking for bums on seats. We as business owners know our market and we know what is out there, and sometimes it not much.
What we have found with Karen at the Stafford Group is she won’t promise what she can’t deliver. Karen is very pragmatic and most of all realistic in what is available and what she can do. This saves our time and hers, and we all know time is valuable in the work environment. Like most people I don’t have time to look through hundreds of CV’s that add no value. We have used Karen for many years and it’s Karen we use, wherever Karen goes, we go. Karen is true to her word in understanding our needs and unlike other recruiters we’ve used before, Karen took the time to understand our work culture to ensure the perfect fit. Most all Karen has never let us down even on those difficult and sometimes challenging roles. Karen is a breath of fresh air and has a style of recruitment very rarely found and I can’t recommend her services enough."
