What people say

Here at Trade Tested we're constantly reviewing what it's going to take to move our business and customer experience to the next level. A major part of this is the talent and calibre of the people we bring in - their experience, character and attitude. To say the team from Gunn Talent have delivered a high level of candidates would be an understatement. Talent acquisition in 2020 is about more than just advertising reach. It's about networks: who you know, who they know and just as importantly, who you don't know. Gunn Talent are experts in using every available channel to source those amazing people you never knew were out there. They get to know your business and understand what's working and what's not. Their communication is excellent and they move with your needs. I can't recommend them highly enough. The time we've saved and the confidence we've gained in finding great people through using the Gunn team has been a game changer for our business.

Securing the right talent is about finding and trusting in a recruiter who can bring specialised skills to your business in order to deliver an outstanding result. This has been particularly important for us in that our head office is in Australia, therefore retaining the right agency to represent our business in New Zealand has been paramount. Our partnership with Gunn Talent has delivered a consistently high calibre of candidates into our business - they have hit the mark every time. In a fast-paced, ever-changing environment where we demand the cream of the crop in terms of potential candidates, Gunn have been able to fulfil our requirements in a highly effective manner – not simply relying on advertising roles, but through proactive market research and direct approaches to suitable people in our market. Great communication and a deep understanding of our needs is key to the relationship. I highly recommend Jo and the Gunn Talent team to any employer seeking professional, hard-working and passionate people – put simply, they get it right every time.

If you share the view ‘’it’s the people in our business who are our biggest asset’, then don’t look past Jo and her team at Gunn Talent. Jo has been instrumental in working with me to effect change throughout our entire business, to ensure we’re geared up for an exciting period of ongoing growth. Recruiting high achievers should be part of any company’s growth strategy – you should never leave it to chance. Jo always goes the extra mile to understand our needs, and really gets to grips with what our key drivers are for each role. If you’re looking to partner with the best, meet with Jo – you couldn’t make a better decision for your business.

Baiju Lal, General Manager, Fox & Gunn Limited

As Country Manager for ASSA ABLOY, based in Australia, I needed a professional recruitment partner that I could trust to deliver the people we need to drive our New Zealand business to the next level. I selected Gunn Talent as our exclusive supplier and I couldn’t be happier with this partnership. Jo, Managing Director of Gunn Talent, is consistently able to research, source and secure candidates that stand out in a talent short market – with the skills, attitude and drive we need to change the culture, and most importantly, ensure the long term financial performance of our organisation. I highly recommend the team at Gunn Talent to companies looking for a true partnership – they will make a significant and quantifiable impact on your business
