My experience with Melissa as my recruiter when going for a sales role at Laminex was an extremely positive one. I felt she presented me to my prospective employer in the right light and gave me the necessary insights into the company to make the interview process easy and ultimately successful as I got the job! I would thoroughly recommend Melissa to both prospective candidates and employers!

Melissa is a true professional in her field who has been able to successfully provide short lists of candidates for a number of positions that required filling within my team. These positions were all successfully filled from Melissa's short lists, displaying her clear understanding of each of the role requirements and pre-requisites of these positions.

Paul McDonald Sales Manager, Stramit Building Products, 

Thank you Melissa for all the support, encouragement and guidance you provided me throughout the recruitment process for the Mechanical Design Engineer role. Your communication and commitment in keeping me updated during each stage was exceptional and very much appreciated, in what can be a very anxious time. You are a dedicated and professional recruiter and I would have no hesitation in recommending your services to any professional job seeker.
