Tara played an instrumental role in my recruitment journey. Proactive and efficient in her approach, Tara supports both employer and prospective employees. I thoroughly recommend Need Recruitment.
Rhea Culliford
I consider myself very lucky to have had the opportunity to engage with Tara while job hunting as a new resident with no local experience in New Zealand. Tara was one of the very few recruiters who have actively contacted me to know more about me with genuine interest, and not only she was calling me regularly to follow up and discuss potential opportunities that might fit my profile, but she stood out by being the only one who actually understood what I was talking about and really saw the value in what my experience had to offer. She swiftly managed to connect me and find me an amazing work opportunity and was helpful and actively engaged the whole process. Her well-rounded business acumen, the wealth of knowledge, and understanding across industries were very evident during our discussions, and she asked amazingly good questions that revealed her agile thinking and curious intelligence. She has a very keen sense for personality traits and has outstanding people skills that made me feel very comfortable communicating with her and truly facilitated my correct placement. I would definitely highly recommend her as the recruiter to go to and stay in touch with.

Tara has placed me in two roles, five years apart. Both experiences have been extremely positive, Tara’s knowledge of the administration industry is excellent and she has gone above and beyond for me, speaking on the phone after 8pm on more than one occasion. She progresses the hiring process quickly and is sensitive to clients’ needs.

Tara Fisher possesses a deep knowledge of the financial services sector and works with a wide network of well-qualified individuals across a range of job disciplines. What I value the most is that she always listens but is never afraid to push back (possibly the Scottish heritage) when she feels that someone is the right fit for our business. Having a partnership with Tara has significantly improved our time-to-hire and the quality of candidates. Highly recommend Tara.

Wayne Goss / General Manager WA & SA - Scottish Pacific Business Finance

I have known Tara for over eight years and she has never failed to find a superstar! What I like is how Tara really understands the team dynamics to find the right personality, often with very little information to go on. This shows the depth of her experience in recruitment. 100% trustworthy, she is a delight to work with and candidates only speak highly of her.

Dominic Henderson / Director I Engineering & Environmental Recruitment Specialist at Enginurity

Tara provided a friendly and personal service that we can highly recommend. The owner of our business who was making the final selection commented ‘finally, an agency that sent someone who exactly fitted the brief’. Nice job!

Tara Fisher from Need Recruitment is much like looking for hens’ teeth. She is one of a kind, a sparkly diamond in the recruitment field. She listens to fully understand, she really digs deep with her questioning before going out to seek the absolute star employee for you. All this is achieved whilst protecting and/or enhancing your company brand. I try and fill my roles directly, but if that avenue to exhausted, then my partnership with Tara enabled us to find the best talent for our Sales team here in Wellington. Tara is the ultimate people person; she really gets you. Her enthusiasm for the job comes through in your interactions with her and trust me, it isn’t about the money and charging you through the nose, it is about what is right for you, so she customises to suit your needs. I never felt once that she was simply clicking the ticket with the recruitment. She is direct and precise in her estimate of the applicant’s potential in your business, if they are not right, she won’t waste your time. Quite frankly, she is so good, I wished she packed in her role and come work for us in the People and Safety team. Keep up the superb work Tara!

Tara is world class…I have connected with many consultants over the years both personally and for recruiting and Tara brings joy to the process. In a nutshell..she listens! Yes actually listens and understands the needs and the what’s important yet tenacious in every way to achieve a collaborative result.

Tara was amazing right through the entire recruitment process. She was considerate to what I was looking for and endeavoured to find me a role that would make that a reality. I don’t hesitate to contact Tara whenever I am looking for a new role and I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking a great recruiter.

Monique Hall / Candidate

The service from Need recruitment is impressive. Tara has found a great balance between the professional and personal requirements of the recruitment process. I was particularly impressed with the effort invested in understanding both the needs of the individual and organisation to ensure alignment. I would not hesitate in recommending Need Recruitment to others.

Simon Cupples

Working with Tara is not your typical recruitment experience, she cares about her clients and takes the time to understand how to help them. From our first meeting Tara spent 2 hours with me giving me tips on everything from my LinkedIn profile to interview techniques. She invests in you and gives you an experience that you will never get from a large agency.

Tara’s excellent industry connections come from her amazing ability to cultivate long lasting relationships with the businesses she supports. Her ability to hunt out new opportunities in a challenging job market was instrumental in placing me in the perfect role. Should I ever need to find work again Tara will be the first person I call.
