Testimonials | Stellar Recruitment


Stellar has a long history in building strong partnerships and producing outstanding workforce solutions for our employers. Here’s what our clients have to say about Stellar:

“In my previous role of Regional Manager with the Equipment Management Group, over the past three years we have utilised the services of Stellar Recruitment to primarily recruit Diesel and Heavy Earthmoving Equipment Fitters for our site based operations throughout the contract sites located in Hastings Deering’s territory of responsibility. This has either been as a straight out recruitment assignment or as a labour hire arrangement.

During this period I have dealt with Mark Powell exclusively and have found that Mark has had a thorough understanding of our requirement with the end result being we have generally always received quality candidates. Given some of our contract sites are remote it has been vitally important for us collectively to ensure the right candidates are placed.

Mark has always placed a very high emphasis on customer follow up once candidates are placed so to ensure all parties are satisfied. Stellar recruitment is very easy to deal with and is more than willing to actively participate in the placement of the best candidate for our requirement. Their guarantee provided leaves you assured that in the event that a candidate does not work out that they will endeavour to replace them to satisfy our requirement.”

Stellar take time to understand the local market and understand what we expect in both quality and terms. They have reacted with efficiency to our requests and always provide good candidates. On occasions where issues have arisen, Stellar have quickly dealt with the matter and followed up with communication to minimise the impact to our business.
