What our candidates think of us
"I am writing to thank yourself and absoluteIT for the service and support given in finding a new position for me when returning to Wellington at the start of this year. It was fantastic after six years away from New Zealand to come back to the helpful and friendly service that people always remember about home. Your enthusiasm and professionalism towards me as a client was fantastic. The position you successfully put me forward for is perfectly suited to my skills and has a great team atmosphere. You definitely made the transition of moving back to the other side of the world far easier.
I would also like to thank you for looking after my daughter while I came in to finalize the position. Your patience and skills with a hyperactive 16 month old child were also highly commendable!"
Johnathan – Systems Administrator
“Just a quick note to say how impressed I’ve been at the way Margaret handled my successful placement for a contract PM role at [the client].
Unlike my experience with many of your competitors, Margaret followed up and delivered on every commitment she made.
She responded to the submission of my CV within a very short time, she lined up an appointment with the client promptly, she sent good details of the interview location and ground rules, she phoned me after the interview when she said she would, she followed up with the client, and she phoned me with the news that I had landed the contract. The paperwork is in preparation and will be tied up about the same time as I start with [the client] on Monday.
Now it would be easy to say that this is just what a customer should expect however this is not the norm in the recruitment industry and I’m really impressed with the job Margaret has done. Thank you for the great work.”
Ron – Project Manager
"I would like to thank you for the great experience I have had with absoluteIT. As I’m sure anyone would agree, looking for a new job can be extremely daunting and leave you feeling as though you are never going to find what you’re looking for. However, the experience I have had with absoluteIT has been both relaxed and encouraging. I would never hesitate to recommend you to my friends and colleagues. Thanks again, I’m really looking forward to my new career."
Patrick – Account Manager
"It was immediately apparent that absoluteIT’s approach to IT recruitment was quite different. They took the time to get to know me on a personal and professional level, my personality, key strengths, achievements, experiences and most importantly my expectations and suitability of future roles. With their extensive knowledge of the IT market they were more effectively able to marketed my skills to potential employers and react quickly, with more precision as and when roles became available. From my first phone call the whole process took less than 2 weeks and I was placed first time. At no point did I feel out of the communication loop, first class employment service. For me a CV does not paint the whole picture and it was enlightening to work with an agency on such a personal level."

Starting a new future
"Almost all IT positions in New Zealand require the person applying, to have either residency or a work permit already. Getting a permanent residency visa or a work visa on the other hand is very difficult without having a job offer before applying for one...
Absolute IT has really helped getting me started on a new future in New Zealand. Initially helping me with setting up remote interview sessions with a New Zealand based company to speeding up the work visa application process by sending in forms from New Zealand instead of having to send them all the way from Europe. So apart from providing a possibility for a job offer, absoluteIT has really sped up the process of getting a work visa by at least several weeks.
After arriving in New Zealand, they also provided me with the information required to set up and operate my own business in New Zealand. Their straightforward attitude and help were really a breath of fresh air, though that does tend to be the kiwi way.
If you’re determined to set up a new future in a country where people are still friendly, where there’s a lot of beautiful nature and fresh air. Something that is very hard or costly to achieve in most countries, be able to relax outside of work in a clean, picturesque and hospitable environment will seriously increase your quality of life. As a renowned IT agency, absoluteIT can definitely help you get started on your new future in the rapidly expanding New Zealand IT branch.
I would just like to say : ‘Thanks Ab IT!."
Jan – Unix Contractor
I want to say thank you very much. You and your team gave me very good help and support during the last months and the kind of service offered by absoluteIT was outstanding when compared with other agents... and believe me that I probably contacted all of the major ones in Wellington. You have a fantastic team and excellent attitude.”
