Dear Buckmaster Hawkey, I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciated your service. I have not used a recruitment agency before and I must say I have been very impressed with your professionalism and experience in this field. You found me a suitable job within a week and negotiated the hours and wage on my behalf. I was very glad that this part of the process was handled by you. I think in the end it will mean that the employer and employee will have realistic expectations of the role. I am looking forward to starting on the 11th of July!

This was my first time using recruiters and I went through a number of different agencies. Sara was the only one who stuck it out from the beginning to finally placing me in a great role that met all my wants and needs in a job position. Moving from one end of Australia to the other was hard enough, but Sara took the stress out of finding a new job and also cared about our move. Couldn’t recommend enough! Thank you so much Sara.

Buckmaster Hawkey have been pivotal contributors to MRE's business growth over the past couple of years. The candidates that have been put forward are more often than not exceptional and meet the mark in regard to our very high hurdles in regard to hiring. First hurdle – culture fit! Buckmaster Hawkey know what we want - and it all starts with attitude. MRE is a high-growth company (BRW Fast 100!) and Buckmaster Hawkey have placed half a dozen candidates recently due to our high growth needs. MRE's philosophy on growth is that our people are the keys to making it all happen, consistently contributing with strong work ethics and having heaps of fun along the way. Property management is a hard gig and we've managed to recruit and retain staff at levels well above industry average. The consultants are always positive and have a can-do attitude in regard to meeting our needs. The Buckmaster Hawkey team have always acted like consummate professionals and are streets ahead of the pack in regard to integrity, execution and engagement.

I haven’t dealt with a lot of recruiters, only a couple – of which those I don’t even remember their names, as they obviously weren’t that impressionable. Working with Sara was one of the best experiences I have had so far. I cannot thank Sara enough for going above and beyond what I am sure is required of her. I felt like I wasn’t alone in the process and that I was supported. It’s very rare to have someone who you don’t know very well actually care. The process of finding a job whilst already working is so hard and very time consuming. Sara made the process that much easier and was so supportive even after having me placed. Very much appreciated her work and would recommend her to anyone.

I recently applied for a job vacancy through Buckmaster Hawkey. I received a call the very next day from a senior recruitment consultant. We discussed my resume and she gave some great tips and insights on what I should do to tweak my resume. We scheduled a meeting and I met at their offices. She was friendly, bubbly and really took the time to get to know me. We discussed the vacancy I applied for and she believed I could be a suitable candidate. She put me forward for the position and two weeks later after two interviews I was made an offer. Buckmaster Hawkey kept me informed on the process and made me feel comfortable with everything that was going on. I loved having Buckmaster Hawkey walk this journey with me and more importantly for believing in me when my hopes of finding a job were becoming very doubtful, due to my working hours that were restricted as a result of my visa conditions. I will most definitely refer Buckmaster Hawkey as much as I possibly can. Thank you for such a refreshing experience.

Awesome recruitment agency!
