I've worked with Mel for a number of years in companies I have worked in and most recently she has placed many key roles inside Motorcorp over the past few years. Mel is a specialist Auto Talent recruiter and I don't think there's many of them in NZ. She is a great communicator but doesn't over communicate. She listens and understands my requirements; her candidates are always very strong and her documentation around her candidates is the best I've ever seen. Mel is highly professional and I absolutely trust her. I've dealt with many recruiters over the years and I've not met anyone as efficient or effective; she is head and shoulders above the rest.
