Melanie not only helped land me an amazing role but she was there in every stage of the process. She made me feel open to talk to her about anything, helped answer my questions and gave amazing advice. Her input before interviews through her calls with help with questions to ask and back knowledge about the role and company gave me the upper hand and confidence I needed to secure the role. She feels like a friend after this process and I value her greatly. I don't think there could be a better consultant...and I've worked with a few others! Thank you Melanie!!

Steven Hannah l Winger Greenlane l February 2017

I have worked with Mel for a number of years in companies I have worked in and most recently she has placed many key roles inside Motorcorp over the past few years. Mel is a specialist Auto Talent recruiter and I do not think there are many of them in NZ. She is a great communicator but does not over communicate. She listens and understands my requirements; her candidates are always very strong and her documentation around her candidates is the best I have ever seen. Mel is highly professional and I absolutely trust her. I have dealt with many recruiters over the years and I have not met anyone as efficient or effective; she is head and shoulders above the rest.

Steve Kenchington l General Manager, Motorcorp Group l March 2017

Melanie was very well informed and no question relating to my new position went unanswered. I would recommend Melanie to all Employers who are trying to fill Specialist positions within there Market place. Great Job.

Evan Lorenzon l Group Parts Manager

Melanie was exceptional. All of the interactions I had with Melanie were first class. She took time to explore where I was at and what I was looking for, and it always felt like she really cared about getting the right fit and best outcome for everyone. Melanie also pushed hard to get the offer of employment through before Christmas which was very much appreciated. This is without a doubt the best experience I've had with any recruitment professional I have ever dealt with (and there have been a few over the years). I'd happily recommend Melanie and Customise's services to other businesses and candidates.

David Hurring l Account Manager

Melanie went over and beyond, constantly in contact through the process, leaving me totally informed. Additionally when I had a question, everything was answered in full, plus the friendly personal approach of Melanie made the process run smoothly. The constant checking and touching base was great, I always knew at what stage my application was and never felt 'I wonder what is happening '. Thank you Melanie I really do appreciate your personal touch.

Scott Harris l People and Culture Coordinator

Mel exceeded my expectations in every way. She has the X factor when it comes to engaging with clients and is open and honest. She listened and understood the kind of challenge I was seeking and best of all kept in contact the entire time during the recruitment process. I have already recommended Mel to my colleagues. She is one in a million and an asset to the Customise Team.

Larissa Naidoo l Talent Coach

Melanie has good connections in the motoring industry. She understands what her client needs and is able to plan the career for her client based on personality, selling style and goals that the client wants to achieve in the motor trade business.
