“I was speaking with Alannah this afternoon and I just wanted to say that I appreciate all the work you’ve sent my way. You are always professional and friendly – which is a wonderful combination to have in the often cut throat and de-personal world of recruitment. It’s not just ‘bums on seats’ at Norwest, I think you all try really hard for workers and your clients. I feel supported at Norwest and have a few laughs also. Thank you for your help as I navigate finding ongoing work “

Lynnette Foley-Jones

“I’m currently working at Warwick farm on a temporary contract and found James to be very professional and his services is highly appreciated. James truly acknowledged to what I was looking for obviously something close to home. Plus it’s a good company to work for.

I want to thank James for all his assistance. Extremely professional and helpful.

James you are amazing and we need more recruitment agents like yourself.”

Kesh Masih

“All assignments I have been placed in I have been happy, and especially my current Temp, causal role of 6 years, to current day. I find whoever you deal with in NWR, from my timesheets to Temp roles or other, the team, Laurie and Nicole have been over and above, I have always appreciated Laurie and NWR`s service. I have not been with any other Recruitment, because I have not needed to, and NWR I am very thankful in not having to look elsewhere.  I have always worked the best for NWR and also appreciate the flexibility I have

required at times”

Sonia Filipaina

“I have been engaging Norwest Recruitment for over 10 years. I have held several senior HR roles at different organisations during this period and always bring Norwest Recruitment with me because they have consistently provided a professional and timely response, always delivering excellent candidates. During this time they have supported me with a full range of roles including IT, HR, administration, property etc. The team is always honest and reliable – they have earned my trust as a lifelong client. I look forward to many more years partnering with Norwest Recruitment.”

Cath Reynolds | Unisson

I have worked with Norwest Recruitment and in particular, Laurie Tomkins, since I started with InvoCare almost 4 years ago. They have mainly assisted me in recruiting for both temp and temp to perm roles such as Reception, Concierge, Administration and Memorial Advisor Roles. Their service is nothing short of exemplary and I have never contemplated using another provider. Laurie Tomkins is amazing to work with. She is genuinely a very beautiful, warm and kindhearted person and really easy to get along with. Professionally she has never let me down and has always been able to find me good quality, purpose-fit, temporary labour to fill vacancies in the business, even at the drop of a hat on many occasions. So much so I have given her the moniker of “Mrs Magic” due to her amazing ability to consistently help us find good quality team members even with the dearth of a workforce during the pandemic. I can truly say that Norwest Recruitment has the best interest of its client at heart and I look forward to our continued working relationship many years into the future.”

Marco Cevolani

“Ammis’s encouragement was fantastic, She made me feel confident and provided me with so much information on the business. When I went in for my interview they were touching on everything Ammi had already mentioned so it felt good everyone was on the same page and I had a full understanding of the role.

Ammi made me feel important and that I deserved a good role – she worked her magic and the fit was perfect. 

Since being in my new role – its been terrific, it’s a big business and I have felt so welcomed and comfortable and no pressure when learning the ins and outs, everyone is very patient and helpful.”

Emily Smith

“Without a doubt, Norwest Recruitment is the best and most commendable for great job placements showing consistent professionalism, responsiveness and superb sincerity to support people like me. More specifically I am talking about Laurie. Seven years ago, I went to Norwest Recruitment and Laurie gave me a first rate interview and service which led me taking an excellent technical temp job that transcended to permanency. Here I am again with Laurie with her warmest welcoming spirit and supported me to get this scientific role in a reputable company. I cannot ask for more. I am so grateful to you Laurie.”

Nenita Alegata

“I wanted to thank Amanda and Vince Kobia for your assistance in the search for our General Manager. The effort that you both gave was exceptional and I couldn’t recommend you highly enough”

Nicole Dowling, HR Manager | Austdac

“Laurie Tomkins is a fantastic Recruitment Manager. I’ve worked with her as a Temporary Worker on and off for the last 2 years. She is always honest about the role and has a great sense of humour. She returns calls quickly and when she says she’ll call you back she always does. I’m always recommending Laurie, and Norwest, to people who are job hunting or looking for temp work. I thoroughly enjoy working with Laurie.” 

Callie Frankenberg

“I wanted to reach out and advise you how excellent Vince was in our face to face meeting earlier today, He came across genuinely interested in me as a person and my career. He is a major asset to your team and the benchmark he has set will be hard to beat, in an industry where I have had many recruiters ignore, fob me off or tell me more about how they cannot help, Vince is a breath of Fresh air.”

Robert Mitchell

“I have used Norwest Recruitment to fulfil many of my temporary and permanent positions over the past 3 years. The staff at Norwest Recruitment are always helpful, professional and efficient. Laurie is amazing and always finds reliable, well presented candidates who fit in with the team dynamic and have the skills and qualifications I am looking for. I would highly recommend using Norwest Recruitment for all your recruitment needs.” 

Kate Cross

“I am extremely pleased with the level of professionalism and commitment you have demonstrated. The time you have put into finding the right candidate and the good communication exchange; to keep us informed. There are quite a few agencies out there and throughout my career I have worked with many; however there are not many that can qualify in my books as Southwest Recruitment. Once again all the best and well done.”

Cesar Villar – Management Accountant – GSF Australia

“In my 18 months at Kincare, I have required the assistance of Norwest Recruitment temporary recruitment on several occasions to provide quality candidates within very tight timeframes. Laurie has constantly delivered strong candidates who have delighted our hiring managers, staff and customers with their strong work ethic and dedication. Laurie takes the time to determine exactly what the business and role requirements are, whilst at all times, ensuring that you are kept up to date on developments. The communication is first class. I would absolutely recommend them as a supplier.”

Tom Mudie

“Norwest Recruitment have always provided me with regular temp assignments when I have needed the work. Laurie always stays in touch with any opportunities that may be of interest and knows her clients well!

Laurie has always been extremely professional, enthusiastic and genuinely interested in supporting me with temp work when required. If you’re after temp work, I thoroughly recommend you call Laurie at Norwest Recruitment.”

Luisa Gillet 

“I believe the most compelling feature of working with Norwest Recruitment is that you are respected and treated as important which remains well after the initial interview. Other consultants may simply ‘touch-base’ but Sarah Marie goes further and remains in contact with a keen interest to presenting any suitable employment opportunities.” 

Paul Van-Ostayen

“I am sending you this email to let you know that dealing with you has been such a wonderful experience, giving me your professional advice, matching me to the right job and keeping me posted about the jobs and phone calls as well as emails. The experience I have had with you and Norwest Recruitment has been so rewarding  and everything is handled in such a professional and timely manner and has by far exceeded my expectations. You are one of the best recruitment agencies and a big thank you for the best quality of service from you Sarah, Laurie and Aleisha.”

Amelia Jones

“I contacted Norwest Recruitment on a recommendation from a colleague who has been associated with Norwest Recruitment for many years. From the first meeting I found Laurie to be both personable and professional – an obvious asset to Norwest Recruitment and her clients. I have had several assignments through Laurie, both long and short term, and recently the most rewarding role I have had in my working career. Laurie kept this in mind and has since placed me with a similar organisation.”
