Very approachable, great communication and really feels like they’re on the job search journey with you.

Karyn Murray

North American Export Market Manager, Sanford

I was helped every step along the journey to finding the perfect role. From feedback on my CV, to preparing for my interview, to open and frequent communication.

Ann Marie Gribble

Digital Communications Specialist, SeaLink NZ

Usually when a recruiter says they will be in contact if any opportunity presents itself, it fails to materialise. This was different, Richard saw a potential match and reached out. Great appreciated, and would recommend!

I have worked with Gaulter Russell for over 15 years, as a supplier, client & candidate. They have always been professional, enthusiastic, attentive to my needs, proactive, open and achieved great results. Importantly, as a candidate their consultants like Fiona treat you with respect, dignity and communicate with you constantly, whether you are looking for a role, applying for a role or just waiting for that next great opportunity.  As recruitment companies are an extension of your brand, it is so important to have a partner that will treat candidates as you would and not as just another number on a piece of paper.  Fiona and her colleagues stand out from the pack in this respect and I would always recommend Gaulter Russell to Employers and job seekers.

I have had the privilege to work with Gaulter Russell for many years on both sides of the fence; recruiting candidates and seeking employment for myself. My most recent experience with Fiona McCrostie has been exceptional.  In short I was starting to think about my next career move I contacted Fiona to have an initial chat and start the process.  It was an inspiring discussion, she was so supportive and enthusiastic about what the future could hold for me.  My experience has been predominantly marketing and partnership marketing however my most recent adventure was Research, Insights and Customer Strategy focused.  I really wanted to continue in this speciality and ultimately remain in Media.  Fiona proactively promoted me to an organisation and opened the doors for an introduction and discussion.  From there the opportunity unfolded and I am now a permanent employee within that company working with amazing people with a role that is truly the perfect next step for me.  It encompasses my skills and experience in a culture that is bang on.  Fiona was delightful to deal with, she kept me on my toes, she managed the entire process from meetings to contract negotiations through to my first day.  I won’t be requiring Fiona’s expertise for me personally for a long time to come, but she will be the first person I contact when I have recruitment requirements.  She is not only professional but truly a pleasure to work with.

Surely the GR in Gaulter Russell stands for Great Recruiting: professional, efficient, personable and willing to go the extra mile. I’ve had the pleasure to collaborate with GR as both client and candidate and enjoyed the experience from both angles. Definitely the go-to marketing and sales recruiter in NZ – very happy to recommend.

Brittany Webb was really lovely! She has been great with communication and when we met she put me at ease straight away with some casual conversation and her encouragement of my application. She gave me some great tips for my interview, which I thought was very supportive.

Fiona provided a friendly and professional service. The communication was great and of course I’m happy with the outcome.

Southern Regional Manager, Filtec

Having been a candidate and a client with Gaulter Russell on more that one occasion, I can say with confidence the experience was positive and rewarding each time.  It is refreshing to work with consultants who are in tune with the corporate environment and who know in detail the nuances of the industries they are dealing with. My experience with Gaulter Russell has been that they are confident and professional in their approach and act with integrity at all times.  Their consultants are skilled and experienced and this gives them the ability to efficiently and intuitively find the best fit for both the candidate and client.  As an employer I seek depth of understanding and efficiency and this requires the consultant to intimately understand the business and the nature of employee that will fit both the role and the culture of the organisation.   The timeliness and regularity of feedback from the consultant made me feel I was valued and not just another candidate.  As a client I had the upmost respect for the consultant and at all times trusted her to provide only the very best candidates for consideration.
