Testimonials

Here's some feedback from some real clients and candidates about Marinejobs

Hi Rob,

I would like to express my gratitude for the excellent support you extended to me through out the process. The timely advice and guidance I received from you was of great help to me. 

This is the first time I have received such exceptional service from a recruitment company. I greatly appreciate the way you looked out for my best interests and ensured that I settle in the new job well. 

It is indeed a matter of great pleasure to have made your acquaintance. I wish you the best in all your future endeavors. 

Many thanks for everything, Rob.  

Kind regards

“I have worked with Rob for over 18 months with regard to the recruitment of some of our CAD Draughtspeople. Rob does not use a 'sales pitch'. He has taken the time to understand our business and shows the same commitment to quality as we do. He understands our staffing requirements and always carries out a thorough assessment of candidates before presentation to us."

“Hi Rob.

Firstly, a great big thanks to you and the team from Calibre we will be receiving our visas via post today.

What a relief it is, a 3-year work visa so that really gives me a good crack at things with the boys at Helensville. Most of our stuff is sold here, our leaving party is arranged and I've contacted schools in Helensville for Robbie and Nicole. They are both very excited, as is Sharon.

This really is happening after all our dreaming and planning for 5 yrs, after being told I couldn't go 3 yrs ago and then being rejected earlier this year. I realise that doing what I did earlier in April was the best move of my life and that phone call to you has opened every thing up. We are wholly indebted to your efforts, Rob, and without your support and service I feel I would still be dreaming about NZ and having to book return tickets every couple of years after a month's holiday but no more...

Once again, Rob, a great big thanks - it might be your job, but it's our future you've helped secure. You can use any of my feedback on your website, as it's come from the heart. You might not realise just how much this means to us, it is what we've wanted, and are prepared to leave sisters, elderly parents, good work mates, a cracking job at xxxxx and some outstanding friends.

All that is missing from the UK is quality of life and that's where NZ wins, as I am sure we will make good friends; family will enjoy NZ with us, so will good friends and I leave one good job to join what I think is going to be a dream for me with lots of hard work involved.

Look forward to seeing you all very soon.

Best wishes - Sean

Dear Rob, 

Thank you for the response, and explanation. It's something that seems to be rarely observed in the US recruitment sector. So thanks for the breath of fresh air.

If you have any clients with need of my skill set I'd be happy to know. I'm still learning the channels and processes for NZ employment. I have attached my resume for your convenience.

Thanks for your time and energy. 

All the best,

"Dear Rob,

Thanks again for letting me know. While disappointed that I did not meet the needs of your client, I truly appreciate your professionalism and good faith effort to present my candidacy to .

As I work through the process of finding a position, I have dealt with a number of professional recruitment agencies. You should know, that your methods and genuine good will set you far above the vast majority of firms. Thank you.

I'll let you know where I end up. And if you come across a position in Auckland that you think would be a good fit please let me know. If you ever get to Singapore give me a call - first beer is on me!

All the best"

"I first contacted Marine jobs after seeing an Ad for a job that interested me on the internet. After first sending an email of interest in the job, I received correspondence from a member of their staff Rob Everall.

Rob interviewed me and then forwarded my details to the company to whom I was applying for the job. The process on my part was relatively easy having only to have an interview with Rob and give him my CV. He then sorted out all the bits and pieces and set up the interview with the company for me. I went for that interview and got the job.

I feel that because of my busy schedule I probably would not have been so proactive with trying to find jobs and chase interviews. But with the help of Rob and Marine Jobs everything came together nicely and I now have a new job to go to".

Dear Rob

I do understand that, as my background is not in the marine industry, there would be other applicants more suited to this role. 

It is a shame that my decades of (removed) experience is becoming less transferrable as our world evolves.

I would like to thank you for your consideration and your prompt response.  What I am most impressed with, is the approach you and your company have taken with this application, it is a refreshing to know that the “personal touch” still exists.

Thank you.

"Rob was the recruiter who gave me the chance to find a job (a very good one) in the time when I had a lot of qualifications (in very different areas) but no work experience in CAD Design, where I wanted to work.

He has the patience and ability to put it all together and to place me in the best position possible to start my career.

After 3 years in Superyacht Interior Design and 1 year in Aerospace Interiors, doing what I love most, I’m back to him, confident that going through the same process, he will find again the right job for the right employer, making both happy.

Thanks Rob, and here we are again…."

"Hi, I have read through the contract and job description and letter of offer I and am more than happy. I will be signing the contract and returning it as soon as possible.

Thank you for all your help in getting me this job, it has been a great help.
Once again, thank you with your help in getting me the position, and I look forward to starting there in September."

"Dear Rob,

Many thanks for your assistance and finding me a suitable position in Auckland.

Your professionalism and dedication to both me and my employer was clearly evident throughout the whole employment process.

It was with surprise when I forwarded my CV to you and had a quick response which is not the case with a lot of other agencies.

Your efforts resulted in me travelling to New Zealand for a 2 week holiday in which I secured the position and 5 weeks later am back in Auckland to start my new future.

Your guidance throughout the interviews, help and advice on living and working in the Auckland area and then assistance with my arrival into Auckland is beyond what I expected from you but is greatly appreciated and helped make the process a lot less stressful for me.

I would certainly recommend you and your agency to anyone and am willing to provide any further references or recommendation to anyone interested in using you to find employment in the marine industry in New Zealand.

Best Regards

Gary Grenfell Torbay, Auckland (October 2011)
