Margaret Ewings

Kim was exceedingly good. She responded promptly to requests and help me find candidates which were the right skills and right fit.

Brian Stephens

Working with Kim as a recruiter is one of the best recruiting experiences I have had. I was recruited by Kim and have used her as a recruiter. Both experiences were very positive! I would recommend Kim if you are looking for qualified results! Kim doesn't just offer a recruitment service, she partners with your business to find the right person for the role you are trying to fill.

Robyn Gunnis Sales and Productivity Accelerator, Change Educator and Agent, People First Digital Transformation Advocate, LinkedIn profile

Always professional and a pleasure to work with!

Faye Chorley

Kim was professional and efficient in sourcing the right candidates for final selection. Kim's ability to effectively pre-screen candidates and to produce a good short list of potential candidates made the process seamless.

Will use Kim again

Les Wessels

Thanks again Kim, for all your help with making recruiting staff an easy process

Michael Casablanca

. Previously as a small business owner I have found the task of recruitment daunting. I am so happy to have made the decision to use Kim as she made the recruitment process simple and stress free. I will definitely be using her again for all of my future recruitment needs.

Melanie Cook LinkedIn profile

Kim did a great job and helped us with our search for a new employee. I will continue to use Kim for all my recruitment requirements and also pass her details onto anyone that I know that is looking for similar help.

Michael Casablanca Woodland Shopfitting, 

Kim is a talented professional focused on exceeding clients expectations- under promising & over delivering. From our first meeting I knew I had found a recruiter for us. I felt relieved as I handed the process over to her.
Kim was available throughout the process & I felt supported.
It was a pleasure to work with Kim.

Donna Alleman Partner, Self-employed, LinkedIn profile

Kim is a pleasure to work with, she knows the market and finds out what the company needs and makes that happen. Kim only sends through the best candidates so they are a great fit for the company and role.
Her communication skills are excellent and you always know how things are progressing. Kim we look forward to continuing our liaison with you in the future.

Sarah Watson TT Building Serveyors, 

All went as expected, professional service

Les Wessels QMI Pty Ltd, 

It was a pleasure in dealing with Kim, professional in all aspects

Les Wessels QMI Pty Ltd, 

Having never required a recruitment agent previously, I was so surprised at how easy and time effective the process was for me. Kim took note of our requirements and even though I know my business better, her basic research on what we are and do was sufficient and effective for a quick turn around and great suite of candidates.

Janine Horrocks FirePro(Qld), 

Kim is a delight to work with! This is the third time that I have engaged her services and I can't thank her enough! Her bubbly personality combined with her professional and efficient approach makes a dreaded task something to look forward to! I have no hesitation in thoroughly recommending Kim for any recruitment needs!

Louis Park Director, Catalyst Computers Pty Ltd, LinkedIn profile

Kim is fantastic, unfortunately this time my candidate withdrew after I offered her the job, and so we will need to start again. Not her fault, but a disappointing result in the end.
Kim seems to be able to remember each of the candidates history and answers to questions throughout the process which is really helpful when I'm busy doing other things at the same time. I will use her again for sure.

Katrina Rendell Somersault Group Pty Ltd, 

Kim was fantastic. She kept me fully informed during the process and was very knowledgeable. I rate her opinion and would not hesitate in using Kim's services again (in fact will be again shortly!)

Steve Moore Mortgage Broker/Director, Expert Lending, LinkedIn profile

Many Thanks to Kim for her professional, prompt and friendly service. I would highly recommend Kim for all recruitment requirements, nothing was any trouble and she was super efficient! Thanks again, Regards Andrea

Andrea Turner PERSONAL TRAVEL MANAGER, TravelManagers Australia, LinkedIn profile

I had heard about Recruitment Companies and how expensive they are and no effective they are in the past. When I head about Recruit Loop and Kim I was a little sceptical. I must say I have already recommended Kim to another few Companies and I will in the future

Michael Casablanca Woodland Shopfitting, 

Kim was the only recruiter who explained how the online system worked at the very beginning, and how the process would run, which was one of the reason I choose her above the other proposals. Her communication was excellent, and she asked us for constant feedback on the role and job description to ensure we were looking for the same candidate. The video interview was such a time saver!

Katrina Rendell Somersault Group Pty Ltd, 

From the first step to the last she has been efficient and effective. She was honest from the start and has always kept us informed on what was going on. Her insights into candidate selection have been first class as well

George Morice GHM Business Services, 

I normally dread putting up a job vacancy, as we get flooded with thousands of applicants, most of whom don't fulfill the requirements. We spend hours and hours just trying to get to the real applicants, and after this exhausting process the ones who looked great on paper are nowhere near ok when in person. What a delight to work with Kim; none of that happened this time. I only had to look at 10, and her top three ended up being my top three (so next time I'll just look at those!). And of the applicants Kim showed me, we have more viable options than I've had before. Our new employee has been on board a week and so far is surpassing my expectations. We'll definitely do this in the future, Kim made the whole experience so much less stressful, exhausting and distracting than normal.

Rebekah Hurworth Director and Principal Architect, Your Architect, LinkedIn profile

Kim was very helpful throughout the whole process.
Initial communications were excellent and it was obvious Kim had a good understanding of the roles requirements.
The video link was helpful
Applications produced a short list of four for interview
Final two were selected with one being engaged
No stress, a big time saver and well worth the final fee.
I will definitely call Kim when we need to recruit in the future.

David Steven General Manager, Express Pallets & Crates Brisbane Pty Ltd, LinkedIn profile

Kim is a fantastic recruiter, she responds quickly and efficiently and knows our company and the team and our culture which ensures the best fit for our team. She is a pleasure to have helping you get the best candidate for your team.

Sarah Watson TT Building Serveyors, 

Kim was very efficient and helpful. We filled our position in only 2 weeks and with the minimum of fuss, only interviewing 1 candidate. A great outcome!

Scott McDonald Sheehy & Partners, 

Kim was great to work with and delivered as always.

Noel Tiufino Director, My Accounts, 

Engaging Kim has been an absolute pleasure. Kim's commitment to understanding the dynamics of the role required and importance for hiring the right team ensures that the applicants are the "right fit" and the "best person" for the job. Kim has an uncanny ability to find people who are fun, friendly and caring.

Cameron Fuller Managing Director, Rick's Doors, 

Kim was wonderful to work with on this project. Nothing was to much trouble for her and every question, query or task I had she performed quickly and efficiently. Very happy with the outcome.

Brent Ralph Director, Stitch and Co Footwear, 

Thanks for all you help Kim!

David Hodge Director, Return Serve, 

Kim, you are absolutely (bloody) brilliant!! You rock my lady.

Leanne Coates Administration Manager, TT Building Consultants Pty Ltd, 

Thanks for your assistance, Kim. Very easy to work with and excellent result.

Domenic Festa Principal, Steps Law, 

Excellent outcome. Great communication throughout the recruiting process.

Graham Barlow MD, Etched Creative, 

Happy with the result

Herbert Few Director, PETRO Industrial Pty Ltd, 

Great service thank you Kim, we will use you again

Mark Salta Director Sales, PETRO Industrial BNE, 

Great work with this placement Kim. Good, consistent service and a result at a fraction of the traditional recruitment agents fees.

Mark Edwards Business Operations Manager, Jensen Bowers Group Consultants, 

Thanks Kim. Although we found our own employee your approach to this project was very professional and effective. We will be sure to pass your details on and recommend your service to others.

Chris Canavan Operations Managaer, Cartella Electrical, 

Kim's service is very professional / flexible and convenient. She has taken the time to understand what we are looking for and what we want. She has then provided us options in a very concise and effective approach leading to a suitable employee. Thanks!

Chris Canavan Operations Manager, Cartella Electrical, 

Kim provided a hassle-free experience in finding the right person for the role, it was great to be able to hand all our thoughts over and trust Kim would take care of the rest. Thank you Kim!

Erin McKinley Administration Manager, TT Building Surveyors, 

Thanks for all you help Kim. The whole process was more efficient and much simpler than trying to find our own staff member and your expertise made the search very professional.

Kevin Howard Director, Accountant, 

Running out of good things to day - great service as always.

Peta Davies

Excellent service as always.

Peta Davies

Great Work Kim - fast, easy, efficient and we recruited straight up - no hassles, love it!

Peta Davies

Thanks Kim for helping us find a loan administrator. We have found the process simple and efficient. Having your input on the selection of candidates has been invaluable for us, and as a result we have a great candidate ready to go. The model you employ for recruitment makes much more sense to me and one which I would recommend to others.

Shayne Cook Director, Presidio Group, 

Kim was very thorough in her selection of candidates and provided only the very best candidates for me to interview. This saved me a lot of time. I highly recommend Kim. I will use service again.

Darren Smith CEO, Rent Resume Pty Ltd, 

I have just recruited 3 great candidates over a 3 week period – with a total cost of only $2,367.50 including the advertising!! The process was simple, efficient and cost effective. I love the Video Interview capability!!

Peta Davies Business Manager, 

Kim was very thorough in her selection of candidates and provided only the very best candidates for me to interview. This saved me a lot of time. I highly recommend Kim. I will use service again.

Darren Smith CEO, Rent Resume, 

Thank you Kim for going above and beyond to help me find the perfect job for me. Out of all the agencies I was attached to in my job search, you were the only one who listened to my needs and gave me support and encouragement through the whole process in gaining my current position.

Nicole Goodwyn PA to Directors, 

I found Kim Acworth from Recruitloop to be an exceptional recruiter who communicated so well throughout the whole process. She was down to earth, intelligent, knew exactly what was needed in the right candidate, asked great questions and provided in depth information about the role - so I was well prepared to write my application and for the job interview. I would highly recommend her to candidates and employers.
