“I have engaged January Group for some four Supply Chain recruitment placements in the New Zealand Supply Chain Market over the last year.

I have found them to be outstandingly professional, with an enormous depth of understanding of our requirements.

January Group has consistently delivered us an excellent range of applicants to choose from, at a technical level, but also understanding and matching recruits to our business, operating model and culture. We are looking for a very specific set of skills, and January Group have unearthed fantastic potential recruits to meet our needs for both our core ERP consulting, as well as our specialised Supply Chain Planning vacancies.

Suzanne O'Leary is particularly well connected into the New Zealand Supply Chain at all levels, from Executive level to Business Analysts, and her extensive network has been a real asset supporting our strategic growth in this country.

I would recommend January Group to any new Zealand Company wishing to fulfill any level of, in particular, supply chain related resources.”

“We really look for recruitment suppliers that are able to offer a service beyond what we can do ourselves and to be flexible to work alongside our business model.

It’s all about networks and who you know and also being able to understand our complex business requirements. Suzanne definitely stands out from the crowd in a very noisy and hectic recruitment supplier market. She is a pleasure to work with and gets results.

I would have no hesitation in recommending her services.”

“January Group has supported our business as we embark on a strong period of growth, by consistently delivering great candidates that fit our organisation and meet our requirements.

I always find the team at January Group extremely well prepared and informed not only about our business in particular but our industry as a whole. This is helpful when it comes to talking about the challenges that we face, from both a day to day operational view and a strategic longer term view.

They are professional and communicate well with our managers and also to our prospective employees.

I can only speak highly of the way they work and the proof of this is in the quality of the hires that we secure and the immediate value they bring to our business.”

January Group has developed a strong understanding of our business culture, needs and expectations, and this is complemented with a high degree of knowledge and access to key talent in the NZ market.

“In my profession I have frequent dealings with professional people from a variety of lines of business, including recruitment agents. I have personally recruited well over a few hundred graduated professional staff, management, and executives, and as a result have dealt with scores of recruitment agencies over the years. The experience that I have had with yourself over the past 5 weeks places you without a shadow of doubt in a league of your own.

I applaud your dedication, commitment, professionalism, attention to detail, persistence, calm and friendly style, your empathy, and above all your commitment to regular and precise communication and updates.”

“In my experience, there is a lack of expertise at the executive requirement level, and this leads to frustrations both as a candidate and employer.  Thankfully, there are occasional stand out recruiters, and my recent experience with January Group was first rate.

They are focused at the executive level, and this shows. Whilst being easy to deal with, Suzanne put in a great deal of work to ensure I was the right fit for roles available. She didn’t waste my time chasing unsuitable roles, and certainly put me through the wringer on behalf of the client to make sure she was putting forward the right candidate. Because of this, both parties got a great fit, ultimately getting me a dream role on my doorstep.

If you are getting disenchanted with substandard recruiters at the exec level, I thoroughly recommend giving January Group a try.”
