I’ve known Lynnette both personally and professionally for nearly 25 years and have worked with her both as a colleague and, in more recent years, as a client in her recruitment business, PR People.
Lynnette was the first person I would call when looking for talent/recruitment advice and for help in finding new staff. Her experience, both as a PR consultant and recruiter, combined with her excellent networking skills, natural people skills, discretion and professionalism and unsurpassed knowledge of the PR industry made her the obvious person to reach out to.
I’m delighted to hear that she is now offering her services as a career consultant. I believe this will be an excellent new career for Lynnette and a natural fit with her talent and expertise. I am confident that anyone who works with her will be better for the experience. I have no hesitation in recommending her services.
I recently had the pleasure of working with Lynnette Edmonds to recruit our new Sales & Marketing Manager. Lynnette took a very thorough and professional brief, asking insightful questions throughout, and she was able to put forward qualified candidates (who not only matched our selection criteria but, most importantly, suited our business) almost immediately. The whole process was not only quick, but incredibly smooth and painless, and we were delighted with the final outcome. Lynnette will definitely be my first stop when our next sales and marketing vacancy arises!

Lynnette is a unique blend of friend, mentor and sounding board for me. She listens intently and can respond with a valuable blend of experience and care, to provide insights into situations and resolutions that I have not yet considered. Lynnette seeks to understand me personally first, to dig into what drives me and what my ambitions are and hence is extremely motivated to help me succeed, however I define success. Every time I talk to and work with Lynnette I am left with a ‘can-do’ attitude and renewed confidence to go forward and actively work to make changes to my life – professionally and personally – so that I can reach my goals and full potential. I can not recommend working with her more highly, and in future I will always look for opportunities to do so.
In her role as careers adviser to HSPR students, Lynnette's counsel provides students with a genuine advantage in landing their first job and setting them on the right path to achieve career success. Her advice, input and industry insights has made a 'session with Lynnette' a much coveted part of our courses.
Lynnette is an extremely personable person, who has the ability to get onto the same level as her clients. I started seeing Lynnette as a careers adviser and mentor after being unemployed for several months, when my motivational levels had hit rock bottom. Lynnette was able to recognise areas that I needed to work on, and provide constructive advice on how I could go about changing my thinking and practices to assist me in finding the right job and employer that suited my needs, ambitions, and personality. I am grateful to of had the opportunity to have met Lynnette as she provided me with emotional support and advice on finding the right career path that would tick all the boxes.
Lynnette is truly professional in every regard. From her expert industry knowledge to a genuine integrity and interest in those she works with I cannot recommended her more highly. Candidates should feel privileged to have her looking after them.
Lynette is a pleasure to work with. She is one of those rare people who can deliver creative solutions while focusing on processes and procedures. She is diligent, thorough and hard-working. She is also a real 'people person' - she is sensitive and thoughtful and never loses sight of the needs of the individual. But she also keeps an eye on the commercial needs of the business and clients.
Lynnette's openness and willingness to listen, really sets her apart, as she draws on her extensive experience to provide insights and advice for the most complex of HR challenges.
Whenever I have a career or HR issue, I have felt confident that Lynnette has been able to guide me in the right direction.
I would thoroughly recommend Lynnette and will definitely be utilising her expertise again in the future.
I recently had the pleasure of working with Lynnette when I interviewed her for an APAC wide webinar on social recruiting. Lynnette is such a pleasure to work with. She is warm, intelligent, articulate and a true thought leader within the HR & Recruitment space. Lynnette is truly passionate about what she does and I would recommend Lynnette and her services to anyone, as I know they’ll receive an amazing experience.
I handed Lynnette a real challenge with my recruitment timeframe - help me find a job before my 457 visa runs out! She rose to it admirably, with insight, creativity and efficiency. In less that 3 weeks, she arranged 4 interviews, which resulted in a great new job offer for me.
Lynnette took the time to understand what I was looking for in a role and only recommended those options that suited me. Having had very mixed experience with recruiters in the past, I would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone looking for senior PR roles in Australia.
She is highly personable, thoughtful, a good communicator and was very proactive on my behalf. She genuinely understands the PR industry and acted with integrity and honesty throughout.
