LT McGuiness has engaged Jakes services on a number of recruitment assignments over the past years. Jake has been an excellent resource and has had the ability to select the right candidates that suit our business. Jake is professional, diligent and I would be happy to recommend him to other employers for recruitment services.
Jake and Harriet from JDT listened carefully to our requirements and then went and found two excellent candidates for the positon. The most difficult part of the process for us was in choosing which of the two to employ. We will definitely use them again to fill specialist roles in the company.
Jake came with the highest recommendation from some of the most respected people we trust in our industry. It was our first time out-sourcing the hiring of a key senior role and Jake and his entire team took the time to understand the skills we wanted but more importantly to understand the culture we wanted to foster in this key hire. Jake and JDT found us the perfect candidate who has created immense value for our business nationally. Thank you JDT, we look forward to utilising your expertise next time.
Jake is a thoroughly professional recruitment consultant. He spends time understanding the business and business culture and always goes the extra distance to match the right candidate with the right employer. I have always found his service to be focused and effective.
Forme has utilised the services of JDT Recruitment for the past two years to fill any vacancies for client side project managers and tenancy co coordinators needed to satisfy the requirements of our clients. We found the level and quality of service provided far exceeds the industry norm and we have no hesitation in recommending their services to similar organisations requiring a quality recruitment company to enhance their staffing needs. JDT,s honesty, professionalism and pragmatism have succeeded in sourcing quality staff members that have added too and assisted in growing our business.
We engage Jake at JDT when our recruitment needs require a Site Manager/Project Manager for our jobs. While we are based in Christchurch our projects can be located anywhere from Bluff to Auckland! Jake is always pleasant to deal with and responsive. We are unique in the way we operate and this is reflected in the broad range of skills we expect from our Site Managers and Project Managers, this however does make it difficult to find the right person. Jake still manages to find us some key candidates to consider and this has resulted in some placements within our organisation. I am happy to recommend Jake, and this can be confirmed by contacting me.
From my first contact with Jake I found him to very personable and professional. He was concise with the Job Description and the company profile. In the rest of my dealings with Jake he always seemed to have my best interests at the core of his business, which was a refreshing change. I would highly recommend JDT as a recruiter for any construction position and look forward to using him again.
Jake tells me that I was the fastest placement he has ever made for a senior professional. I empathize with that. To me it means that Jake listened to me and understood what I was looking for in an employer/company. Perfect match: ever thought of adding match-making to your repertoire Jake?
My short time with Harriet was a very pleasant and professional experience. Where other agencies were dragging their heels, attempting to push me forward for roles I was neither qualified for or interested, Harriet knew exactly what I wanted, and from our initial interview, she proceeded to exhaust all her available leads and contacts, keeping me informed at every step, and within 2 weeks, I had secured a successful initial, followed by a final interview for a PM Commercial Build post and began work a week later. I felt I was a person in this journey and not just a fee, that is very important to me, and should I ever find myself in this situation in the future, I will only be making one phone call.
Harriet has provided me with invaluable assistance in attaining my dream position. From the very start she was engaged with genuine interest whilst maintaining professionalism. Her time-management and elaboration of each process was exceptional and consistent, which was not only impressive but also reassuring. I am beyond grateful that I approached Harriet and would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone seeking employment in construction, architecture, and engineering.
Thanks for helping with my placement Jake. As a new comer to the country you really made the process of finding work within the Wellington region a lot easier. It’s definitely a market of knowing people and your knowledge of the local networks was invaluable. Also thank you for matching me with an employer that suited both their needs and mine, the personal interaction made a huge difference.
Originally from the Philippines and new to the New Zealand workforce, I found it difficult to initially find work. I submitted my CV to Jake at JDT and got in touch with him soon after. He discussed what I needed to change as far as my approach in looking for the right job. He showed me all the prospective vacancies. He arranged my interview with LT McGuinness, one of the most respected builders in New Zealand. Jake knows what employers are looking for and knows how to showcase your skills to get you noticed. My experience working with Jake has been excellent and I would recommend him to you.
Jake is a gifted recruiter, who is very conscientious in the consideration of candidates for specific roles. On a personal level, Jake positioned me with a company that met the exact needs of my career at that point in time. He made the process of interviewing an enjoyable experience, which amounted to a positive relationship with the new employer.
Thank you Jake. The positon you found suits me perfectly. You listened to my requirements and found out about my drivers to ensure you only put me forward for suitable positions. Always approachable and honest. If I move employers again I’ll definitely be giving you a call, although you found such a good fit I don’t think it’ll be for a while! Many thanks again.
