"We have been very satisfied with the service provided by Marine Jobs in assisting us to fill various positions in our organization. They have been very proactive in promoting applicants for these positions. They understand our requirements and presents only applicants who we would seriously consider. We have recently appointed a Service Manager who was selected by Marinejobs. This person was very impressed with the way that he was mentored by them and was grateful in the manner in which he was assisted in refocusing his position and objectives. We have been very happy with his performance, which has more than matched his CV.

“I have worked with Rob for over 18 months with regard to the recruitment of some of our CAD Draughtspeople. Rob does not use a 'sales pitch'. He has taken the time to understand our business and shows the same commitment to quality as we do. He understands our staffing requirements and always carries out a thorough assessment of candidates before presentation to us.

Thanks again for letting me know. While disappointed that I did not meet the needs of your client, I truly appreciate your professionalism and good faith effort to present my candidacy to <XXXXX>.
As I work through the process of finding a position, I have dealt with a number of professional recruitment agencies. You should know, that your methods and genuine good will set you far above the vast majority of firms. Thank you.
I'll let you know where I end up. And if you come across a position in Auckland that you think would be a good fit please let me know. If you ever get to Singapore give me a call - first beer is on me!
"Rob was the recruiter who gave me the chance to find a job (a very good one) in the time when I had a lot of qualifications (in very different areas) but no work experience in CAD Design, where I wanted to work.
He has the patience and ability to put it all together and to place me in the best position possible to start my career.
After 3 years in Superyacht Interior Design and 1 year in Aerospace Interiors, doing what I love most, I’m back to him, confident that going through the same process, he will find again the right job for the right employer, making both happy.
Many thanks for your assistance and finding me a suitable position in Auckland.
Your professionalism and dedication to both me and my employer was clearly evident throughout the whole employment process.
It was with surprise when I forwarded my CV to you and had a quick response which is not the case with a lot of other agencies.
Your efforts resulted in me travelling to New Zealand for a 2 week holiday in which I secured the position and 5 weeks later am back in Auckland to start my new future.
Your guidance throughout the interviews, help and advice on living and working in the Auckland area and then assistance with my arrival into Auckland is beyond what I expected from you but is greatly appreciated and helped make the process a lot less stressful for me.
I would certainly recommend you and your agency to anyone and am willing to provide any further references or recommendation to anyone interested in using you to find employment in the marine industry in New Zealand.
I never forget that you are the one who gave me some valuable advice when I applied for visitor visa to come to NZ; also you tried hard to find me employment (as a Marine Engineer) after I came to NZ.
Now all my family is here. (My) Wife is working in Wellington as a Civil Construction Quantity Surveyor and (my) daughter has just enrolled the Engineering Faculty at University of Auckland to follow a B Eng course. We are happily settled.
Thank you very much for helping us to lay the foundation of our happy living here.
"Having just completed my studies, I approached Marinejobs in February 2008 in order to get a placement in the yacht design field. Within 2 weeks they had secured me a position with a prominent leader in marine composites. I found Rob to be very Professional, easy to deal with and has great knowledge of the current marine industry in New Zealand. A very easy, stress free process with proven results."
“After ten years at sea moving ashore presents some tough challenges, one of the biggest being a change of career.
Marine Jobs, and in particular Rob Everall, helped me to establish exactly what I wanted in my next appointment.
Rob's interview style suited me perfectly, very relaxed and informal, yet also helping to bring to the fore all of my qualities and attributes that would ultimately assist Rob to match my skills and career goals and personality with the right employer.
Six months on as the Service Manager of a busy marine engineering workshop in Auckland is not as far away from being Chief Engineer at sea as I initially thought, Rob and his lateral thinking helped myself and my employer to realise this and for that I am grateful."

"My name is Eduardo Nery, a Brazilian citizen, who recently moved to NZ along with my family.
It was July 2007 when I contacted Marinejobs through their web site from Brazil, responding to a CNC Operator Job advert. I was contacted by Rob Everall, one of their consultants, and he gave me a outstanding feedback via e-mail explaining every single detail that involves work and leave in NZ.
So I finally came to the country and I was very well assisted by Rob, who helped me in every possible manner in order to obtain my Job Offer and initiate my migration process to this wonderful and peaceful country.
I do have previous experience with a few job agencies in the past but none of then compares even close to the service and professionalism that marinejobs.co.nz showed as they handled my case. They help me find the job as well assistance in all Immigration processes with professionalism and kindness.
I'm so pleased with marinejobs.co.nz that Ii would strongly recommend then for all the professionals and tradesman who want to come to a new life in New Zealand, it is very important to stick with someone you can trust when a huge life change is involved and they are the right guys.
“Thank-you for all your effort in getting so much accomplished in such a short time. I arrived back in SA yesterday, and was quite exhausted after the 2 long flights. I received the final offer from last week.
Many thanks again for your professional and prompt service.”
Firstly, a great big thanks to you and the team from Calibre we will be receiving our visas via post today.
What a relief it is, a 3-year work visa so that really gives me a good crack at things with the boys at Helensville. Most of our stuff is sold here, our leaving party is arranged and I've contacted schools in Helensville for Robbie and Nicole. They are both very excited, as is Sharon.
This really is happening after all our dreaming and planning for 5 yrs, after being told I couldn't go 3 yrs ago and then being rejected earlier this year. I realise that doing what I did earlier in April was the best move of my life and that phone call to you has opened every thing up. We are wholly indebted to your efforts, Rob, and without your support and service I feel I would still be dreaming about NZ and having to book return tickets every couple of years after a month's holiday but no more...
Once again, Rob, a great big thanks - it might be your job, but it's our future you've helped secure. You can use any of my feedback on your website, as it's come from the heart. You might not realise just how much this means to us, it is what we've wanted, and are prepared to leave sisters, elderly parents, good work mates, a cracking job at xxxxx and some outstanding friends.
All that is missing from the UK is quality of life and that's where NZ wins, as I am sure we will make good friends; family will enjoy NZ with us, so will good friends and I leave one good job to join what I think is going to be a dream for me with lots of hard work involved.
Look forward to seeing you all very soon.
Best wishes - Sean
PS: See the picture from when I was out for my interviews - I caught this 8 kg Snapper off Great Barrier on Anzac Day, this sums up my love for NZ."
"I first contacted Marine jobs after seeing an Ad for a job that interested me on the internet. After first sending an email of interest in the job, I received correspondence from a member of their staff Rob Everall.
Rob interviewed me and then forwarded my details to the company to whom I was applying for the job. The process on my part was relatively easy having only to have an interview with Rob and give him my CV. He then sorted out all the bits and pieces and set up the interview with the company for me. I went for that interview and got the job.
I feel that because of my busy schedule I probably would not have been so proactive with trying to find jobs and chase interviews. But with the help of Rob and Marine Jobs everything came together nicely and I now have a new job to go to".
"After several attempts trying to correspond with Recruiting companies, I came across Marine Jobs on the internet.
Hesitant to get involved with any more recruiting agencies, I gave them a call. As well a polite phone manner, they were very clear and concise with what they needed from me, and contact was made within hours, not days on end.
After one week I had an interview, and within an hour of returning home, I received a phone call from Rob Everall at Marine Jobs telling me that my interview was successful and that I could start as soon as I wanted.
It seems the attitude and lack of feedback from recruiting agencies is quite a frequently seen problem amongst Job searchers. However, after dealing with 3 other recruitment agencies, I would not hesitate in recommending Marine Job’s to anyone. Their service is second to none."
I wish to thank you for all your effort in providing me with outstanding services, as you were a great asset in the next step of my career. It was a pleasure to deal with you, as you swiftly provided us with top quality. I hope to deal with you in the future, and will recommend your services to all my colleges and friends.
I have received my profile. Thanks so much. I am very pleased with it, and I am sure it is definitely going to be a great marketing tool for me to secure a good job in the current market, if you are not able to find something suitable for me.
Once again I appreciate all you have done so far to try and help me in my quest to find employment. I look forward to continue working with you, as your agency is definitely a cut above the rest, due to the way in which you have taken the time to find out who and what I am as a person and prospective employee.
