Rena Yung Principal, Appnovation Technologies, LinkedIn profile

I’ve worked directly with Chad MacRae since he started at du as a Recruitment Specialist. Prior to Chad’s arrival I had 2 open vacancies in my team which had been that way for nearly 18 months, with very few (or no) potential candidates in sight. Chad made the time to meet with me and understand my core business and the type of person I was seeking, a skill which is often lacking in many recruitment consultants today. Within months (and ahead of my expectations) he had sourced and filled all vacancies with highly skilled people. Chad is a professional, hardworking individual and a skilled recruiter. He would make a valuable asset to any organization, in any industry.

Evan Miller National Solutions Architect - CLM, Dimension Data, LinkedIn profile

Chad is a truly recruiting professional. I had a great experience working together and I was impressed by his efficiency, leadership ability and insight. As time has gone on, I am even more impressed with just how deeply he embraces recruiting best practices and genuinely cares about people.

Danielle Edwards Sr. Quality Assurance Analyst, Appnovation Technologies, LinkedIn profile

I have had the absolute pleasure of working with Chad Macrae since April 20th, 2008. Chad joined our company as a recruitment specialist on a 3 month contract but due to his exceptional performance, teamwork and terrific attitude I managed to renew him until this month. Because of the economic downturn our company has decided not to renew most all contractors.

Chad approaches all his work with a smile and a positive attitude. He is extremely professional and very well respected by his line managers, vendors and colleagues. Chad has been able to deliver against vacancies in our Billing and Collections area that had been open for over a year. He worked diligently with me on an International campaign to target India, Malaysia, Singapore and the Philippines to find these rare skill sets. He worked very long hours on this campaign and never quit until the roles were filled.

Chad is also a very adaptable person who will pick up whatever is thrown at him to help out his teammates. He has worked diligently on our marketing, sales, customer care and planning and performance roles as well.

He is a quick learner who understands the scope of the roles for which he is recruiting and can efficiently source for those roles on all the various databases we subscribe too.

Chad has a natural knack for technology and quickly picked up on how to use the Oracle system as well as our other internal systems. He is extremely detailed and tracks everything he does so that I was always in the full picture of where things stood with his vacancies.

He was always available to his line managers and candidates alike. He has a ‘can do’ approach that is second to none and works extremely well under tight deadlines and pressure.

I would not hesitate to hire Chad again. He is an exceptional employee, colleague and friend to all at du.

Barbara Van Pay Managing Director Smart HR and Managing Partner EMEA Recruiting Social, LinkedIn profile

Chad originally sourced me to work for Appnovation, and I have since worked with him to interview and hire many others as the business has continued to expand rapidly. I can confidently say that he is an excellent recruiter and would highly recommend Chad and Recruiting Social.

Rim Trabelsi FMCG, LinkedIn profile

During Chad's time working with Appnovation, I saw the positive effects of his work every day. In a period where the company was rapidly growing, Chad continuously found great talent that had the right skills and fit the company culture. I saw the positive impact of hires resulting from candidates he found both within the QA team and the other disciplines I work with. Chad and Recruiting Social helped change the way that I looked at recruiters as I could see that they looked at more than just skills listed on a resume or LinkedIn profile and looked at the person as a whole and how they could contribute to Appnovation. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Chad and would definitely recommend him to any company looking to find the best talent that also fits within their company culture.
