Media Release – 8 November 2011
1st Call Recruitment are recognised as NZ National Finalists ….
Once again local company 1st Call Recruitment are up against the big city boys for the third time as finalists in the SARA Seek Annual Recruitment Awards.
In 2008 and again in 2010 they won the prestigious title of ‘Favourite New Zealand Recruitment Agency’ in the Medium Generalist Recruiter Category; and this year with fantastic support from clients, candidates and industry colleagues they have managed to make it into the most hotly contested category again, outstripping 80 national entrants to make it into the finals. This is a great achievement despite only having 3 working days to get a campaign together due to a glitch in the system and not being notified until the eleventh hour that the voting had opened. Going up against some very strong campaigns put on by the larger recruitment agencies who are prominent in the Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch markets meant it was no mean feat to get a run on the board in such a short amount of time. 1st Call acknowledge that this would have been impossible without the outstanding support from local businesses.
1st Call Recruitment are a Tauranga based company who have recently branched into Auckland and Waikato to cover the ‘Northern Triangle’ and effectively provide a hands-on recruiting process for the majority of their clients in the North Island with multiple branches. They also recruit very successfully for organisations throughout New Zealand and internationally. By embracing new technological developments to their advantage, 1st Call are able to provide a smarter recruiting service with cost savings passed on to their clients. They advertise on well known jobsites such as Seek, Herald Jobs and Trade Me, utilise local media both online and in print, conduct Skype video interviews, use social networking for marketing jobs and background checking and have the ability to download files and information from iPhones and iPads at any time, in any place, right through to updating documentation online that can be accessed anywhere in the world. 1st Call are constantly striving to be ahead of the game by working smarter.
Being recognised for their achievements is aligned with their company vision; always putting long term sustainable relationships and good work principles first; retaining a local personalised touch whilst offering the best in professional employment services; and keeping abreast of the internationally owned and big city recruitment agencies that dominate the New Zealand employment market.
“Our aim is to be New Zealand’s best recruitment company based right here in the Bay of Plenty. We support local businesses and in return the awards and recognition from industry peers is a great motivation to continuously look at ways to improve and update processes through technology and maintain our great rates and high ethical standards that look after all aspects of the recruitment process. We value our candidates and clients alike and are thrilled to make it to the finalist category once again!” Says Phill Van Syp, Managing Director of 1st Call Recruitment.
