Client testimonials

The correspondence, interview experience and application process from start to finish was absolutely brilliant. The care and way you all went about handling the process with sensitivity and as real people (not the usual impersonal forms and automated responses) made it all the more reassuring. I particularly appreciated your transparency in correspondence and in your candidate briefing pack about the stages of the process, with clear expectations from the outset. Thank you. Not just because of the outcome, this has been the most professionally managed recruitment process I've ever experienced. Please also pass on my thanks again to Andrea, I enjoyed our conversations - her warmth and energy was a joy!


We liked having a team appointed to look after us. Having two recruitment processes, the follow-on and consistency was important. Jane and Gina were a great team, keeping us updated and in touch with how the process was progressing. Jane was a very good interviewer and the calibre of the Search candidates with the second process was outstanding.

Karen Price, Chair, Aotea Electric Auckland

I would have to say that Sheffield is the most professional well run recruitment agent that I have ever encountered. From a candidate perspective, the prompt communication all throughout the process was fantastic and the thing that stands out the most for me. There is nothing worse as a candidate than waiting around wondering when you might hear about each step in the process. It was the same when I dealt with Mike on a position a few years ago. Absolute gold standard!

Joanne Soderlund, Candidate, Grey District Council

Engaging with Sheffield and having Louise as our lead on the recruitment for our CE position was a great decision. Louise listened to our requirements, focus areas, our communities values/challenges and was extremely professional. Her knowledge and experience guided and advised us throughout this process to a fantastic outcome. I would highly recommend Louise and her team for the recruitment process. Their vast experience and knowledge in the local government sector helped us through this process to a positive outcome for our council.

Tania Gibson, Mayor, Grey District Council

We had used Sheffield before in the search for a Trustee and we felt we could rely on Sheffield to get the job done. We knew Sheffield would get out into the market and the search would be thorough. It was a very pleasant and professional experience.
