Clare Moran, Executive GM, HR, Veolia Environmental Services (Aust)
"It's a testament to the quality of Recruitment Edge services that I would not consider using any other recruitment agency; either now or in the future. Their work ethic and selection process is exemplary and this is most certainly reflected in the high quality of candidates while still managing to ensure 'value for money' in a very competitive market."
Robert Dias, Senior Manager, Operations and Logistics, UNSW Global
"Recruitment Edge stands out from the other recruitment firms because they are passionate about what they do and they genuinely care about their client and candidate relationships, they want long-term relationships. This is a truly unique characteristic to find in their industry."
Natalie Banister, Senior HR Manager, bioMerieux Australia
"What sets Recruitment Edge apart from other recruiters is that they take the time to understand the client's needs. Zetco has very high standards and Tania and her team have always ensured that prospective candidates are the right fit. Recruitment Edge's professional philosophy includes a strong commitment to workplace health & safety and it is well aligned with Zetco's policies and procedures."
Zetco Valves Pty Ltd
"The Recruitment Edge Team are passionate, dedicated and friendly. INSTYLE and I are fortunate to be associated with you. So many of our critical operational positions at INSTYLE are peopled by fantastic candidates that Recruitment Edge sent us. We have a vibrant office culture at INSTYLE - I guess it's another reason why we gravitate towards a relationship with Recruitment Edge, we think alike!"
Kit Lee, Financial Controller & Operations Manager, INSTYLE
"The best aspect of the Recruitment Edge service is the professional nature of the interaction with clients. Staff are always more than happy to help, efficient and don't muck you about with useless candidates. No improvement required! 100/100 compared to other agencies."
