“I contacted Mackenzie King with view to make a move out of practice and into industry, it was a move which I was feeling a bit apprehensive about and was not entirely sure on how to go about it. Sarah Hope was very informative, a great communicator and very efficient in her work. Sarah always worked around my needs: I had numerous telephone calls, Sarah and Geoff Collings travelled to me for a meeting, I had an interview arranged and was offered the job all within the space of a week of me initially contacting Mackenzie King. The transition was very quick and smooth. I have taken a big step forward in my career, all thanks to the efforts of Sarah and the rest of the Mackenzie King team – I would thoroughly recommend their services.“
“I highly recommend Natalie Collings whom I have known over 10 years, as a professional, diligent and extremely competent consultant who has helped me find strong calibre candidates for key positions within the finance team. Her approach goes beyond just matching skills and experience to a job spec. I know when I interview a candidate that they would have been already vetted as a suitable fit within our organisation and culture. Natalie is always well organised throughout the recruitment process, keeping me regularly and sufficiently updated on any issues which may occur.
Natalie’s expertise and negotiating skills have helped me tremendously both as an employer and as a candidate in seeking employment. She is one of the best consultants in her field that I have had the pleasure of dealing with.
I have no concerns in recommending her services to people in need of work but also to employers as her level of services and consideration is second to none.”
Finance Director – Professional Services
“I have known Natalie Collings now for a decade and in three different businesses I have requested Natalie’s services to support our Finance recruitment needs. This has been across a variety of different roles; ranging from ledger based jobs through to senior qualified positions. There are a few aspects of Natalie’s approach that I really appreciate. One is no matter what level the role, Natalie always applies a level of professionalism and diligence that ensures the very best candidates she has registered are filtered and matched to our needs. She achieves this by understanding how I operate as a leader and to understand the culture of the business I am working within. Also her communication style is one I very much appreciate, a great blend of professionalism and humour. I have secured many people with Natalie and I like how she takes pride in how they develop post the recruitment phase, as to Natalie everyone has unique needs and she always wants to ensure the best match has been made possible with both the employer and employee.”
Financial Director – Food Distribution
“It has been a great experience working with you at McKenzie 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!”
Manager for Business Development & Support
“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.”

“I have known Sarah now for a number of years in her capacity as recruitment advisor for Mackenzie King.
I would describe Sarah as an extremely efficient, professional and understanding consultant. When I have recruitment needs Sarah is always my first point of call. She takes the time to listen to my requirements and match her clients to these needs.
This means I get excellent candidates from Sarah, which in turn saves me time and effort in the recruitment process. Sarah will also go the extra mile in researching her clients properly and thus I have confidence in that when someone arrives for an interview, I will not be wasting my time.
I would thoroughly recommend Sarah to anyone needing a first class service recruitment service within Finance or Payroll.
On networking / seminar days, where I have attended as a business leader, Sarah has always greeted me warmly, professionally and introduced me to invaluable business contacts. She is a wonderful asset to the Mackenzie King business. Thank you Sarah.”
“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.”
