Personalised Consultancy Service

We act as a consultancy and advisor to clients and candidates – not just as an order taker. We listen carefully, don’t make assumptions and ask sensible questions to cater appropriately for all your recruitment needs.

As a nationwide leader supplying on-hire temporary staff and permanent placement staff, we provide impartial advice at arm’s-length, giving unbiased, objective guidance on job placements.

We consider candidate care to be as vital as forming and maintaining lasting, productive relationships with our clients. We treat all existing clients and candidates with the same zest and interest that we do when negotiating with a new client or working with a new candidate.

Experienced Recruitment Firm

We are a solution based organisation with a history of making it happen; our consultants and management team are well organised and flexible, and accept the workday doesn’t begin at 8am and end at 5pm.

We seek an effective robust long-term relationship and demonstrate our delivery of service with consistent standards.

We are very passionate about the industry we serve.  We uphold guidelines and comply with ethical and employment legislation, government policy and procedures.

At Advanced Personnel we have a saying; “well done is always better than well said”. We recognise that we are only ever as good as our last temporary on-hire or permanent placement. This means we are consistently endeavouring to shine above our competition in order to keep the long-term relationships in place.

Advanced Personnel is a 100% New Zealand owned and operated local business. We call New Zealand home and enjoy supporting the community. Advanced Personnel remains committed to being a good corporate citizen. We push for a paperless environment and recycle with a concerted effort.

We support local projects and charities where we can, and also provide work experience opportunities. Any sweepstakes that we have companywide and choices are left, the winnings go to charity. In addition a number of our staff donate blood on a regular basis.

We’re proud to be a part of your community and looking after it where we can.
