Angela’s an accountant by qualification, and a recruiter by nature. Which is to say, she can whip up a pivot table with her eyes closed, whilst holding three conversations simultaneously. She started Consult at her kitchen table with a toddler in tow waaay back in 2009, and soon after roped in former colleague Steve (mainly for his excellent babysitting abilities).
To Angela, whether someone is a ‘candidate’ or a ‘client’ (two words she’s on a crusade to ban) is irrelevant. She’s all about the people, and frankly couldn’t care less whether they have a fancy title and the corner office, or they’re just starting out.
Angela's role is now mostly focused on Customer Experience, the Consult brand and hiring the best Consultants in town.
When she’s not coaching the Consult team to awesomeness or convincing the world’s best recruiters to come over to the bright side, she can be found on the football sideline cheering on the kids, in the garden clearing one of Auckland's urban forests and learning piano.
Because you are never too old right?
Angela put me completely at ease throughout the interview process. She was interested in me as a person and what I wanted to achieve and she actually wanted to help. Steve placed me in a long term assignment and the support I received from Steve was outstanding.
I managed to fill my staffing requirements from the high calibre of candidates Angela put forward. She was extremely professional, diligent, and capable, but more importantly, she listened to me and my requirements. This enabled the right candidates to be appointed as quickly as possible. I have no hesitation in recommending Consult.
Steve and Angela are friendly, professional and approachable at all times either for advice or just a catch up. I never hesitate to recommend Consult Recruitment to friends and colleagues who are searching for work, approaching them was the best decision I could have made.
Angela really stood out for me. She was the first recruitment agent to say "No" when I was seeking payroll work (which I do not particularly like but had a lot of experience in). Thanks for looking out for my individual interests - it helped me a lot as I was quite lost there for a time!
Steve and Angela were enthusiastic, warm and extremely professional. I was given sound advice in response to my queries throughout my job search. Great feedback on improving my CV, too.
Consult provides a great service and is different to many run of the mill recruiters. They really stand out from the rest.
I thought the people I met at Consult were absolutely outstanding and helped me find a job in an area that is well suited to me and steered me in the right direction.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with Consult. You guys have been truly amazing and I thank you all for the great work you have done with me. I would definitely recommend your company to everyone.
I wanted to say a big THANK YOU to you and your team for all the great work you’ve done for me. I thank you for the time and effort you spent on finding amazing assignments with good pay rates. That clearly shows me that you truly value and appreciate your temps and for that I am truly grateful. I wish you and Consult all the best for the future and hope you get the best candidates always, for you are truly an agency that really looks after their people. I would definitely refer friends and colleagues on to Consult Recruitment.
Thank you for the awesome introductions which are truly some of the best I've seen. These are very much appreciated as was the time and advice you gave me the other day. You and the team at Consult are so much better to deal with than the competition it's not funny. Very refreshing from a candidate POV and no wonder that you've been able to grow so much over the last few years.
Consult are the ONLY recruitment agency who didn't just tell me to keep re-applying if I saw a new role. They appear to have good systems and people. The website is excellent.
Good communication, presented good candidate and provided added value with seminar last week!
One of the best, if not the best, recruitment companies that I've dealt with!
Very happy with professional , friendly and helpfulness of team members at Consult that I have dealt with.
Have dealt with Consult recruitment team for over 15 years and have seen the team grow from strength to strength. They have always provided both great support and guidance to me as an applicant looking for the next challenge and as an employer looking for new team members. The team is very professional , helpful and friendly. Would highly recommend them to companies and applicants.
Love the team at consult. Would definitely work with them in the future.
Consult are a group of down to earth and likable people. The are easy to work with and understand your needs completely. They are always a point of contact for me and recommend them to others.
A Very prompt response received. The whole Consult team is very professional yet personal. I feel that they genuinely care about you as a person and your career path - not like other countless agencies who just focus on sales! I have recommended Consult to many of my friends.
I like the people at consult. They give a personal touch and tries to understand the needs of clients to help them achieve their career goals.
Had an awesome experience, and we always like to refer other businesses when we have had great service ourselves. Consult were able to take the stress out of finding our next person. The whole process was easy and their helpful suggestions along the way were invaluable.
I have used Consult as both a candidate and employee and found the service from both perspectives to be fantastic. I would recommend them to anyone needing a recruitment professional in the accounting and finance space.
Your consultants where knowledge able what my skills are. There was good follow-up when there was a staff change.
Really awesome people that I dealt with.
The big thing with Consult is around the interaction with you as a customer. The process is around building a relationship first with the sales aspect being secondary.
They're genuine and professional in all of the dealings I have had with them. Angela and Steve create a wonderful culture and it shows through the team.
