Shannon was so professional, friendly and easy to talk to. I have never worked a contract position before and she put my worries to rest and kept in touch with me regularly. She was an absolute pleasure to work with.

- Franz, Managing Technical Chemist
Sam is the most professional Recruitment Consultant I have ever met. He has a professional approach, is a good listener and attentive to details. I would recommend Sam as the most professional Consultant I know and would definitely work with him again.
Sam was great He was very comfortable yet professional and kept me up to date with what was going on. My current employer didn’t want me to leave so it was difficult to get a positive reference from them. Sam worked around this and got me the job!
- Dipisha, BAS Senior
Sam made me feel important as an applicant by keeping me up to date with what’s happening. I felt that he really valued my capability and what I could bring to the job. Sam knew I was reviewing two other job offers so he went the extra mile by helping to explain my situation to the hiring manager, and if they could possibly interview me as soon as possible. He didn’t want to delay things for me because he knew I had to make a very important decision soon. Sam did a fabulous job from day one!

It was perfect to work with Karen. She was friendly, professional and an expert in her field. I believe she caters to each individual’s needs to get the job done efficiently. I highly recommend.
- Alan, Production Analyst
Karen was great, easy to talk to and efficient. She delivered exactly what she said she would.
It was great working with Shannon. She is very professional and absolutely wonderful when it comes to caring and communicating with her candidates. At one point, Shannon waited till 6pm
(outside of her working hours) to check in and see if I was happy with my role. I cannot praise Shannon enough. I have had several recruitment agents in the past but Shannon is the best person I have dealt with.
- Jae, Accounts Payable
Shannon was great! I’m glad I got to work her with.
- Michael, Accounts Payable

- Shelley, BAS Manager
Sam is honest and gave me all the relevant information for me to consider the job offer. He understood my personal situation and was able to align the job offer to that accordingly. Sam did a good job in coordinating the whole interview process and I was able to run through them without any hiccups. He guided me step by step from interview to offer and was quick to respond to my questions. He kept in the loop so there was never any surprises. As a result, I referred a few of my friends who are seeking new jobs and he has been excellent in providing guidance to them. Sam’s an excellent person to work with.

- Geoff, Director
I really enjoy Sam’s honesty and way of communicating. He’s proactive without being pushy and doesn’t put forward candidates that aren’t the right fit. He’s always available at the other end of the phone to provide open and honest advice. When we had trouble contacting the candidate, I knew Sam did everything possible, including text, email and LinkedIn to try and get hold of them.
- Lucette, Senior Advisor
Sam was a fantastic person to deal with, Sam took my career aspirations seriously and also provided some sound advice. It was evident that Sam wanted to place me at a good employer and not just anywhere. He was kind enough to follow up to see all was going well at my place of work. Thanks a lot Sam
- Divya, Sales Support Administrator
Linh thought outside of the box for us, took the time to understand us and our needs, and proactively found someone who fitted our brief.
- Philip, Finance Manager
Linh was great, honest, reassuring and very helpful.
- Naomi, Credit Controller
Karen is very professional and supportive. She keeps her word,
if she says she’ll get back to me – she will! Most other agencies say they will get back to you but never do. She went the extra mile by preparing me for my job interview and helping to convince the client I was the right person for the job.
- Kim, Payroll Administrator
Karen was really professional but easy to open up to. She was encouraging because I’m a quiet person but Karen has real people skills and I felt comfortable throughout my first interview with her. Karen also called me before I went for my job interview and helped me prep for it. This was great as talking to her beforehand opened up my quietness and I was able to confidently answer questions from the interviewer. Karen was also consistent with checking how things are. If she didn’t get hold of me then other contractors would say Karen is asking how I am. Even my Manager would tell me to keep in touch with Karen because she was asking about me and genuinely looking out for me.
- Liilii, Credit Controller

While I was in the middle of my job hunting, Sam McGregor contacted me about a great job opportunity and helped me evaluate my options. In less than a week, I received a job offer from a reputable company thanks to Sam’s patience and dedication in helping me every step of the way.

Without a doubt, I recommend Sam to anyone looking for awesome job opportunities! Thank you, Sam!
- Joni Tardio - Candidate
I have worked with Parker Bridge for the last four years to recruit Contact Centre, Internal Area Managers, and administration roles. More recently, over the past 12 months, I have worked with Craig Hegan and the Parker Bridge team to recruit an entirely new Executive team as part of a major transformation project. This included a new Head of IT, Head of Finance, Head of Health & Safety, and Head of Operations. All have brought additional capabilities into our organisation resulting in a profitable business turnaround, higher staff engagement, and a strong performance-driven culture.
Underpinning this success has been a willingness from Parker Bridge to invest time in understanding our business. Mutual trust has been developed due to the successes we have had, and Parker Bridge's recruitment methodologies and headhunting have ensured that I have never had to interview countless candidates when recruiting. Recruitment is key to our success and to find the right strategic partner provides me with the confidence that candidates being presented are fit for purpose. We value our partnership with Parker Bridge and I would have no hesitation in utilising their services on-going.
- Scott Taylor - Client
I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Parker Bridge for the committed service and professionalism I have received during the process of sourcing a suitable role. Notably the service I have received was of the rarest quality in comparison with my previous dealings with other recruitment agencies. I'd like to recommend Parker Bridge anyone looking for future employment in the Accounting or Finance space. It is the right choice!
- S. Chen - Candidate
On arriving at Parker Bridge Wellington for my initial ‘meet and greet’ with my Consultant, I was impressed with the warm and genuine welcome that immediately put me at ease. What I found really impressive was the comprehensive knowledge of the role and the understanding of the company, its people and their requirements as well as their culture. Knowing their subject matter (and not waffling) provided me with clear information about the role and how it might be a great fit for me. Parker Bridge definitely went the extra mile, engaging me in role-play to ensure I would be at my best during the interview. Throughout the entire process, the communication was incredible and it was clear they definitely wanted to find the right role for me, and equally the right person for the client.
In a nutshell I found Jess to be professional and skilled in her field of work and clearly able to identify with both candidates and clients to build a genuine rapport. I would highly recommend anyone looking for a job opportunity contact Parker Bridge, as they clearly are recruiters with integrity.
- Karen Sykes | Candidate
“My Consultant was very well networked and having an Accountant background brought knowledge and hands on experience in his field. He has a genuine interest in helping others and went the extra mile to ensure that both the client and candidate are suitably matched. He is also a true professional and has the ability to build instant rapport and trust with his clients. I highly recommend Parker Bridge if you are seeking someone within an Accountancy or Finance position.”
- Clare Menzies - Wellington Chamber of Commerce
Thanks so much Parker Bridge. I could not have done it without your help — it’s been a pleasure dealing with you. I only have good things to say about Parker Bridge. This is the fourth role they have found for me over the years, with the consultants changing but never the service.
- Nirmila Lalloo - Candidate
A huge thanks to Parker Bridge for going above and beyond. I have recently resolved my tax problem, which I would not have been able to sort if Louise (with the help of Preet & Caitlin) had not offered me her support, time and expertise. This situation has caused me a lot of stress over the last few months but your conscientious approach not only gave me confidence that it would be resolved but ensured it was.
- Michael Williamson

It has been great doing work with my consultant and, to be honest, I was sceptical about working with Parker Bridge. They have proved me wrong by providing excellent service and great communication. Their follow up and follow through on each of our three roles has been exemplary. I look forward to working with them in the future.
- K. Voss – Finance Manager, Fullers Group Ltd
Our consultant and his team have gone above and beyond at ensuring that they deliver us with top quality candidates every time. The apparent ease in which they do this really does make the recruitment process a breeze for us.
We have definitely thrown some challenges to our consultant, particularly in recent months, and he has delivered every time. Sometimes our brief will practically be non-existent but his depth of understanding of our business and our needs means that we see great candidates that are a match for LeasePlan and our culture.
The relationship that we have with Parker Bridge is one of true partnership and we would have no hesitation in recommending this service to others.

The Parker Bridge consultant was able to quickly and professionally source a list of suitable candidates. These candidates were of a high calibre and we were able to find one that suited our specific requirements. We were particularly pleased with the way in which the consultant conducted the process; she always kept us informed, requested and provided feedback with each candidate and correctly interpreted our requirements accordingly. Her integrity in all our dealings was exemplary and she is to be congratulated on her performance.
- B. Capper - Chief Financial Officer and General Manager, Broadlands Finance Ltd

My consultant had no hesitation in arranging her schedule so initial interviews were carried out at my convenience and requested site, plus arranging interviews with prospective employers at times to work in best for me and the current employer. Parker Bridge worked with me until they secured me a role – one of the best jobs I have had and am currently employed in this same role 2 years later.

I've never been to any consulting/human resource/recruitment company who takes a lot of effort preparing the candidate for the interview, for which I am really grateful. I know you will continue with your outstanding service and will always look for best ways to help both your candidates and your clients.
- M. De Manuel – Financial Controller
I’ve been working contracts through agencies, globally for the past 10 years and I can honestly say Parker Bridge is the most knowledgeable about the industries they cover. They are very trustworthy, thorough and fair in testing their candidate’s capabilities.
