I would like to take this opportunity to thank you. In my many years working in New Zealand and applying for positions through Employment Consultants, I can honestly say there are only a few ‘gems’ out there who actually care about the employee or potential employee. Many Consultants just do not bother to even contact applicants to say that their application have been received, is not going to proceed, or that they will keep you on their records should another opportunity come up.

I really appreciated you weekly emails ‘checking-in’ to see how things were going. It is something unusual in my opinion and would encourage you to keep the practice up, as a recipient of such emails, it makes you feel that you are cared for. You have been amazing to work with and I will recommend you to any of my friends who may be looking for positions of a temporary nature.

Sophie, Erana and each one in your team,

A massive thanks for all your hard work to take care of your staff and in such unprecedented times. This is such a big relief! I can literally feel tears in my eyes. It was getting so difficult to meet the both ends. Again, many thanks for your hard work. You guys really deserve a big applause for not giving up!! Take care of yourselves and stay safe.

"Tristram European has had the pleasure of working with Morgan Whittle from Alpha for approximately two years now.

I personally have been Morgan’s main point of contact, as she has been mine, for not only Temp’s for our reception cover, but also recruitment.

Morgan took the initiative to come in for a day as a Temp on Reception to really understand Tristram European as a business, as a work environment and to understand our customers.

She is such a treat to work with and I find that Morgan has a natural flair for really engaging with anyone employing to find suitable candidates to put in front of those employing!"

Penny Thorne – Marketing, Dealership Growth, Recruitment Manager/Tristram European 

"We are very happy with the services provided by Alpha Recruitment, particularly Morgan and Amy with whom we deal as the need arises. They listen to our requirements, have organised a number of interviews, including via Skype, and have found suitable candidates for both our Auckland and Christchurch offices. We have also been impressed with their follow-up service; they genuinely care about their clients and their placements."

"Jane was such a great help at Alpha, very positive and supportive. It was a lovely feeling I had Jane looking out for me on my job hunt, couldn't have done it without her. Thank you so much Jane."

Emma Elvy

"As a contractor with Alpha working in a team leadership role in a government agency I was assigned to lead a team who were all also contracted to Alpha. Drew made sure he kept in touch with myself and my team and made regular trips out to visit to make sure everyone was doing OK.

Back in the office Bernice made sure that anyone of my team who had a query about leave or any pay issues were responded to quickly and efficiently Great support and always willing to be there. In my role I had the unique position of also having to manage a large-scale recruiting drive. Again Jane and her team were there, providing top candidates with the skills and experience I had asked for ,often with short notice, to attend interviews. The standard was excellent so much so that I was able to offer contracts to over 90% of the candidates put forward.

A testimony to their ability to clearly understand the client requirement, select the most suitable candidates and support them through the contract period and training.”

Mike Parkinson

"I have called upon the services of the Alpha Recruitment team for both regular and urgent bulk recruitment. The team work together to deliver the results I need every time. Their communication is superior as is their commitment to sourcing the right candidate for my team. If you are looking to partner with a professional recruitment team that delivers, Alpha Recruitment should be your first choice."

"Since 2006 HV Power have engaged Alpha to find and recruit a range of applicants for positions in their growing company. Recently HV Power requested the help of Alpha’s Merle Holland in searching for 2 new staff: the first for a logistics and admin role to work in the MV Switchgear projects team. The successful candidate put forward by Alpha was a capable young Brazilian lady who had previously worked in a similar role for a multinational supplier in her home country.

The second position was for an Electrical Fitter – Panel Builder position. The company had tried for several months to recruit locally without success. As filling this new position became critical HV Power engaged Merle Holland to secure someone from overseas with specialist skills – the company had never done this before.

Merle advertised for this specialist candidate, and secured one from South Africa, a specialist Electrical Fitter & Panel Builder, who started with HV Power during February. Its worth noting that there is an acute shortage of these specialists around the world, and the role is listed on the skill shortage list in both Countries.

I would have no hesitation to recommend Merle Holland at Alpha recruitment to find specialist engineering staff.

"Hi Sally and Georgie (The Johnson Group)

Just wanted to say thanks for your help with the recruitment for our Senior Adviser position. It was great not to have to go through the whole short-listing process. I think Sarah will be a really valuable addition to the team and we are looking forward to getting her on board. She has already asked for me to send through some information for her.

Thanks again
