Here's some feedback from some real clients and candidates about Marinejobs

"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".

Dear Rob, 

Thank you for the response, and explanation. It's something that seems to be rarely observed in the US recruitment sector. So thanks for the breath of fresh air.

If you have any clients with need of my skill set I'd be happy to know. I'm still learning the channels and processes for NZ employment. I have attached my resume for your convenience.

Thanks for your time and energy. 

All the best,


Applicant, USA - September 2016

"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.

Thanks Rob, and here we are again…."

"Hi, I have read through the contract and job description and letter of offer I and am more than happy. I will be signing the contract and returning it as soon as possible.

Thank you for all your help in getting me this job, it has been a great help.
Once again, thank you with your help in getting me the position, and I look forward to starting there in September."

Dear Rob

I do understand that, as my background is not in the marine industry, there would be other applicants more suited to this role. 

It is a shame that my decades of (removed) experience is becoming less transferrable as our world evolves.

I would like to thank you for your consideration and your prompt response.  What I am most impressed with, is the approach you and your company have taken with this application, it is a refreshing to know that the “personal touch” still exists.

Thank you.



Applicant GH, Oct 2016

"Dear Rob,

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.

Best Regards

Gary Grenfell Torbay, Auckland (October 2011)

"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."

David Hamill – Marinejobs Candidate

"I would like to express thanks and appreciation to Rob.

The professional and dedicated manner at which he conducts his placement process is beyond compare.  It is quick,efficient and most of all, stress free".

Craig (July 2010)

"Hi Rob, 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. Thank you very much."

Igor Kolezhitskiy – Marinejobs Candidate

"Thanks Rob

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.

Yours Sincerely
