Emily has been contracting to our company for several months now assisting us with recruitment. Her approach has been very refreshing as it was a part of our business where we were struggling to make progress and we had also made some very poor decisions in respect of the quality of the people we had hired.  The progress she has made in a short time has been amazing, and we are now in a position to make some very informed decisions on new staff with a confidence that’s was lacking in our own recruitment plan. Emily is also putting together a new business plan for our property management business which has been long overdue. She has put forward some very innovative ideas and we are very excited about the prospects of this business going forward. Emily has a very bubbly yet businesslike approach to her job and it is not unusual to receive an email very late in the evening. Emily has also been responsible for getting us up to speed with social media. Just another string to her bow. This is still work in progress for us but without Emily’s knowledge we would still be in the dark ages! Wayne Graham and I have really enjoyed working with Emily over the past few months and I can see a long term working relationship with Emily and The Human Connections group.

Little Wonders recently commissioned Human Connections Group to provide us with a comprehensive on-boarding survey for staff in our childcare group. The process has been very valuable for us & Emily ensured that we received outcomes that were tailored specifically to our needs. We would happily recommend Human Connections Group & look forward to enjoying an ongoing relationship with Emily & her company.

I am over the moon and excited about what’s ahead! Thank you so much for guiding me through a recruitment process that is usually so very daunting, you made everything go smoothly, I learnt a lot from you, I felt like I could talk forever with you on a friend level and professional level because of your amazing personality and experience. Your service is a real one to one connection that helped me into the next phase of my life and connected me with the best real estate company full of experience and opportunity – ultimately landing me my dream career! Our communication was effortless and you were available if I needed anything. You taught me my weak and strong areas so that I could develop personally and professionally into the most successful real estate agent possible in align with my personality. A career progression path tailored to my own abilities within my new employer. I am SO thankful I walked through your door Emily. Thank you!

It’s been five months in the role now and I feel it is going great. It is exactly the type of position I was looking for in an amazing location, at an up and coming business. Success seems to be just around the corner as we have now implemented some formal systems of work and have more serious enquiries than ever. We may be looking for our next employee in the new year. You and the team at Human Connections did a fantastic job linking myself and Modbox together. It appears to be the perfect fit.

Joe Daly – Modbox

I called Emily about a role they had advertised, had a great conversation over the phone, emailed my CV to her straight away and we meet the next day. What an amazing meeting, I left with an understanding of the roles available, an understanding of what Emily and Human Connections could do for me and I think the best part of it all I left with a clear understanding of how valuable my skills are. Emily, Victoria and their team had multiple jobs in different fields to put in front of me and in a short time frame I had multiple interviews to attend till I found the perfect fit for me. I have just completed my first week in my new role and could not be happier. I’m back in an industry I love, a step up in career and new challenges to succeed at. Emily, Victoria and Team – THANK YOU

Thanks to Emily I have a very exciting new position. Emily went above and beyond to find something to suit me. Very thankful.

We contracted Emily to help us with recruiting a number of new roles in our company, Timely. She was excellent to work with. The advice I followed was correct. The advice I didn’t follow, I wish I had. I’m looking forward to working with Emily and Victoria again as our business continues to grow. If you think you need help with HR or recruiting then don’t hesitate to contact Emily.

Well what can I say?… I had the pleasure of dealing with this H.R. Company and in particular Victoria upon applying for a position of employment in New Zealand which started towards the end of last year before Christmas. To make things more interesting I am from Australia. And they (the team) were fantastic and Victoria was amazing throughout the whole process which continued on, over and through the Christmas – New Year break. Even though the outcome for the applied position was not favorable, the whole process was enjoyable because of Victoria and her colleagues. At no time did it feel “just like another step in the process to endure” and i feel Victoria and her colleagues by extension could show so many other H.R. companies and departments how to perform REAL customer service! And keep in mind this was all done via phone and email due to the distance and differing time zones of separate countries and not to mention over one of the busiest (especially privately busy) times of the year. Absolutely amazing and I can not recommend this company strongly enough in words. Absolute pleasure and thank you!

I applied for a job that was advertised through Human Connections Group, expecting to deal with a company that was acting for the employer only. Instead I found a lovely, supportive environment led by one of the friendliest and efficient women that I’ve had the pleasure of meeting. Thank you thank you thank you Emily and crew for making this process easier and for being so understanding and patient with me! Would highly recommend this company to both employers and job seekers alike. Keep up the good work team! 5 stars

Wow Emily has been so helpful in finding me a fantastic job that fitted with everything I said I wanted, when I first meet her a few months back. She has a great sixth sense for what you want, and matches it to what Employers are looking for. Thanks again Emily!!! You really are Fantastic!!

The HCG team were contracted to recruit several trades staff for our New Plymouth based business following a internal recruitment campaign that had been running for several months. Using a fresh approach, targeting the correct demographic through social media, we soon had several applicants and managed to fill a number of positions relatively quickly. Thank you for the unique approach and professional service. 5 stars

I highly recommend Emily and her team, I met Emily a couple of years ago when my business my partner and I were struggling to attract applications for a key position within our business . I met up with Emily and instantly knew we had made a good decision , she was professional , focused and not finding the right employee for us wasn’t an option , we gave Emily our requirements and she left my office , she would check in with updates every couple of days and we had our new employee within 2 weeks . Thanks Emily Highly Recommend. 5 stars

Emily and her team have been exceptional in helping me find a job after being out of the recruitment process for so long. Emily answered my email query straight away, had a meeting with her that week, and had an interview lined up for me the next day! Such a lovely lady who just gets its and is very easy to deal with. I highly recommend Emily and her team. Thanks Emily!

Sarah Smith – Facebook Review

I cannot speak highly enough of Emily and Human Connections Group. In only one meeting Emily really took the time to understand me and what I was looking for, it was the most positive experience I have ever had with a recruitment agency (but they are far more than that). In absolute record time Emily has found me a great job which I can’t wait to start. This experience exceeded my expectations in every way. Thank you!

With heart and humour, the team at Human Connections Group “just get us”, they’re the HR team in our KiwiHarvest family. Thank you Vic, Emily and Jac for your professionalism and the support you provide us, especially finding us the rockstars we need to join the special KiwiHarvest mission to rescue more food. As a small team, we’re super grateful for the time you dedicate to us.

Highly recommend! If you’re looking for a change, give them a call! Super friendly & full of experience! Thanks again Victoria

Jason McKay – Facebook Review

I can’t recommend Emily and Victoria and the team at HCG enough. I have been working with them for some time now over, a number of projects and with a number of different clients. The feedback is always amazing. The team takes the time to get to know the business and the people to ensure the results are always positive, from recruitment through to HR advice and projects.

Emma Black – Facebook Review

Awesome! Really great people to work with through the process, and I now have a job, so all in all 10/10!

Eleanor Truman – Facebook Review

I approached Human connections after unsuccessfully applying for roles as part of a career change. I was invited for a personal consultation. I loved being personally involved in my road to being recruited. I also employed Adrian from Stepping Stones within the company, to rewrite my cv to a suitable format. After applying for roles, I were successful in securing two positions, the one being permanent at a big institution. I happily recommend this company for their personal, human interaction and quality professional service.

Liesl Hoogenhout De Jager- Facebook Review

More than just asking set of questions, Emily really took the time and effort to ensure both the role and myself would fit well. Looks to be a perfect match! Thank you to Emily and the team!

Jon Deaker – Facebook Review

It is very refreshing to come across a professional recruitment agency who not only serves the employer, but looks after the prospective employee as well. Having observed other companies, their tardiness and lack of professionalism in looking after the applicant, I have no hesitation in recommending Danni McDonnell and Human Connections Group as my number 1 pick as a recruitment agency.

Gordon Hollands – Facebook Review

Human Connections Group is what everyone wants in a recruiter— efficient, thoughtful, and easy-as to deal with. They get you in a job quick-smart. That they also give heaps back to the community is a big bonus for us who live in Dunedin/Otago. Send them your CV!

Katherine Greeneyberg – Facebook Review

I have had the pleasure of working with Emily from Human Connections twice in the past 3 years relating to job search in Oamaru. Emily is very professional, easy to talk to and really gets the job done! I now have a fabulous new job that I cant wait to start! Thank you!

If it wasn’t for Emily connecting with me on Linkedin, I wouldn’t be in the dream opportunity that i am now. I now deal with Emily and the team on a regular basis sorting out the HR matters for our team.

Thanks to Su, the process was extremely enjoyable and smooth. Great contact throughout the entire process and the follow up has also been fantastic. What a great team!

Stacey Burrell – Facebook Review

Emily & Victoria are a great team, both fantastic to work with, I can’t recommend them highly enough! Meetings with them were great, they both have a way of putting you at ease, and they really cared about finding out who I was and what I needed out of a role. They also kept their promises by following up with me and keeping me in mind when the perfect role came up. I can’t thank them enough for recommending me and helping me secure a great new role, and especially for the help & encouragement they gave me during the interview process. Thank you Emily & Victoria, you really do go the extra mile!

Lyn Hurring – Facebook Review

I have never worked with a recruitment agency before and I found Kaitlyn at HCG amazing! She coached me through the whole process of applying for a position and then following up with me every step of the way. She was so approachable and extremely helpful, and to be honest if she hadn’t pushed me I wouldn’t have taken the leap and applied for something I really wanted. And I got the job! So thank you so much Kaitlyn and HCG…

Roseanna Smither – Facebook Review

I haven’t worked with a recruitment agency before however Su made the whole experience amazing. Su coached and encouraged me from when i submitted my application through until I received the job offer from the company. Thank you Su, I wouldn’t recommend anyone else.

Brooke Stringer – Facebook Review

Emily was very focused on getting me employed, offering advice regarding improvements to my CV, arranging “best fit” interviews with prospective employers and supporting me through the whole employment process. I was lucky enough to end up with multiple options at the end of the process. I highly recommend Emily and the Human Connections Group and have recommended them to my friends who have rated Emily as a “top chick” (high recommendation from this particular friend of mine). If your looking for employment, get in touch with Emily and her team….you won’t be disappointed!!!
