From our first meeting right through to the successful recruitment of our new accountant, Catherine was extremely professional and efficient. It was evident at our initial meeting that Catherine had done her research into our business and by the end of the meeting clearly understood the type of person that we were looking for. In addition, if Catherine was not in the office, her colleagues at Mackenzie King were fully briefed and able to assist. Immediately following her appointment by us Catherine set to work and within six weeks, including the Christmas period, we had successfully recruited someone. I would have no hesitate in recommending her services.
“Mackenzie King stand out from the rest of the recruiting agency crowd and provide a professional and personal approach in assessing what the candidate is seeking. Their focussed attention ensures both the candidate and employer are suitably matched. Many thanks for all your help in finding me a fantastic role.”
Recently placed candidate
Catherine’s approach and that of Mackenzie King is built on the old adage of ‘Know you Client’ but also ‘Know their Business’ and to deliver value and not just a name for a price. Her success over the years has been driven by the trust she gains from her candidate applicants and the trust placed in her by her clients. In a recent multi agency project she was the only recruiter to take the time to contact me personally on behalf of a candidate to ask what my interview style was like and what the candidate should expect from me at the final interview. She was also the only one to ask for specific feedback on the rationale for our selection and hiring decision. Needless to say we don’t discuss cost, we agree on the value she can bring to our recruitment needs.
“It has been a great experience working with you at MacKenzie King. I felt that you were working as hard to understand us, as an employer, as we were in recognising the qualities of the candidates in order that the result suited all parties. An outstanding service!”
“MacKenzie King are a supportive and friendly recruitment agency that I would not hesitate to contact should I be looking for work in the future. The one to one meeting assured my employment needs and requirements were assessed in detail and a perfect job match was found. Unlike other agencies, they proactively sought employment opportunities for me, never ceasing to keep me in the loop. The end to end process from providing my CV to commencing my new job was effortless and a pleasure.”
“MacKenzie King were a pleasure to deal with throughout my application. They are talented, well-informed, enthusiastic and thorough and they understand their market space completely. They helped guide me through the process and throughout our interaction I was impressed with their professionalism and communication.”
“We have used MacKenzie King to recruit all of our recent finance roles and have found their understanding of our needs, candidates offered and handling of the recruitment process to be professional and efficient.”
MacKenzie King was fantastic to work with, as both a candidate and a client. I found Catherine to be extremely professional, approachable and helpful. As a candidate, she was quick to understand the kind of opportunity I was looking for and within couple of hours after our interview/meeting she put me forward for exactly the right job. As a client, Catherine and the MK team always provide an exceptional service. She has great knowledge of the industry and is determined to find the right candidate for our business. She is personable, thorough and a great communicator. I would absolutely recommend MK to anyone looking to make the next step in their career and any business looking to find the right candidate.
I have worked with Mackenzie King, for our Finance personnel, on an exclusive basis for over 6 years. They made a point of getting to know not only our business needs but also our Finance team skills and personality requirements. They invest the time (and save us valuable time) to meet every candidate for a role, thereby ensuring that those individuals put forward are worth interviewing. The service that Mackenzie King provides is personal and tailored to the needs of each vacancy, in my view it is not driven by the need to earn a commission but desire to offer a high standard of service to their clients.
