“Our consultant has excellent communication skills and has talked with me at length to understand the requirements of this position. She has understood what we are looking for from the start and takes feedback well. She’s a real people person, not pushy at all compared to other recruitment companies. It’s clear that although you (TRA) don’t meet your candidates face to face that vigorous & relevant work-related questions are asked. Overall when it comes to the “bounty level” (fee for candidate) it helps that you have a fixed rate and you aren’t charging 10’s of thousands like other agencies yet your service is so high. I will be using The Recruitment Alternative again it’s been a really good experience.”

I had a great experience and I am happy to recommend the recruitment service offered by The Recruitment Alternative.  I found my Campaign Manager to be extremely attentive and efficient.  I was always kept informed of the progress of the applicants and she was extremely knowledgeable and approachable at all times.  I am sure I will use The Recruitment Alternative in the future.”

Deo Prasad – CRC


“The service that The Recruitment Alternative provides is second to none. After having dealt with many different recruitment companies it has been a pleasant surprise to deal with a company that actually does what it claims. Furthermore it has a pricing structure that is nothing other than good value.

Traditionally our company would expend considerable time and costs to recruit new staff, however, now that we use The Recruitment Alternative our costs associated with the overall recruitment process have reduced considerably only adding to the value of their services. Their process is simple and saves us time and money, and the staff are friendly and professional.

We could not recommend them highly enough.” 03/10/2013

Steve McGregor (Manager) – ETEA


“We were a little skeptical at first utilizing The Recruitment Alternatives’ cost effective recruitment model but they made a compelling case, and giving it a chance were completely satisfied with the outcome, just as good as a traditional agency and at a fraction of the cost. Three months on we have hired three employees and have had a speed and quality of service we are extremely pleased with. They have exceeded our expectations and we look forward to working with them again the next time we need to hire someone.”

Barry Carter (Director) – Coreserve


“At first I was a bit apprehensive about using The Recruitment Alternative to find some key staff for our business because their fees were “too good to be true”. However, I decided to try them out because I had used some other recruitment agencies in the past but found their fees to be excessive and they were too slow to respond. Some of them made a lot of promises and gave the impression that they had a large list of candidates suitable for our requirements, only to find out later that this was not true.

As soon as I signed on the dotted line, The Campaign Manager got to work and the first thing they did was to understand our business and the skills we expected from the person we were looking for. In less than two days I interviewed several candidates and found two people to fill positions within our organization. Within two weeks we had them on board without any hassles. I found the Campaign Manager to be very well trained, motivated and their attention to detail amazing! I would not hesitate to recommend The Recruitment Alternative to any organization that is looking for good employees in a short time with minimal fees.

Thank you to The Recruitment Alternative for making my life a lot easier!”

(A saving of between $6,000 and $7,500)

Ranjit B Solanki (Managing Director) NCC Apparl Pty Ltd


“BCI engaged The Recruitment Alternative in early May to assist with three vacancies. From the get go our management team were extremely impressed by the sense of urgency, professionalism and accuracy demonstrated by the Campaign Manager assigned to us.

Unlike other agencies, The Recruitment Alternative really took the time to understand our business and ensured open communication at every critical juncture of the selection process. This approach allowed them to fill all of the roles in a timely and efficient manner, with candidates who aptly matched our key selection criteria.

Owing to this positive experience, we would happily recommend The Recruitment Alternative to other companies. BCI will most definitely re-utilise them in the future as we continue to grow our organisation with quality professionals.”

“The Recruitment Alternative is an exceptionally professional agency. I would happily recommend them to anyone – they remove the frustrations, time and effort completely out of the recruitment process.”

Manager – Industrial Product Importation/Supply Company


“Working with The Recruitment Alternative was refreshing and such a fantastic experience. They’re very affordable and yet their service levels were the best I’ve come across. Our recruitment consultant was excellent – she was consistent, kept in touch and delighted us with her candidates. I’m so impressed with their service, I’m keen to pass their details on to our membership base.”

George Lancaster (General Manager, Commercial) Australian Gift and Homewares Association (AGHA)


“When The Recruitment Alternative approached me, I had avoided using a recruitment agency for 20 years due to a bad experience with an agency I trusted. Art of Multimedia has great staff longevity, and I was convinced that unless I was always hiring, I wasn’t going to find a company who would really care for finding me the right team members, so people with the right creative and technical skills, but also fit our culture.

The Recruitment Alternative, however, convinced me to give them a try and I’m so glad I did! Not only are they really affordable, their service levels are excellent and Michael is available to help even when I’m not recruiting. They’ve done our recruiting for 4 years now and have successfully placed roles from Digital Designers to PR Managers to office admin roles.”

Beata Kade (Managing Director) – Art of Multimedia


“Our consultant was a great help – she was very quick to provide good quality candidates for our review, set up interviews at a time convenient to us and we had secured a wonderful new receptionist just one week after the initial request!”

Jeremy Wright (Director) – Business Funding & Planning Pty Ltd


“The Recruitment Alternative has been recruiting for VTS for close to 4 years now.

Their level of service is fantastic and to date they would have saved us approximately $60K in recruitment fees – no small feat”.

Belinda Young (General Manager) – VTS

Sandra Catt (Practice Manager) – Zonaras Consulting Pty Ltd


“We had used other companies previously, and found them over-priced, pushy and not necessarily relevant in the recruits that they sent through. With The Recruitment Alternative though, our opinions have been turned on their head; excellent rates with top service, and quality recruits sourced for us. We definately won’t ever need to go elsewhere for our recruitment needs”.

Project Director – Construction Industry


“We were absolutely thrilled with our campaign manager and the lengths she went to for our recruitment campaign. She was working on two very difficult jobs and left no stone unturned. We commend her efforts and would be delighted to recommend her to others. We would give her an 11 out of 10″.

In fact, I would go so far as saying our brief was better understood than by previous agencies. Michael, you were right in saying “you may be pleasantly surprised”… indeed we were. We look forward to doing business with you in the future”.

David McSweeney, Partner – McSweeney ca

The process was very painless and we hired a sales person within 6 weeks of engagement. We would certainly use them again”.

Nick Bowman, Founder and CEO – IBRS


“We were very happy with the service provided by The Recruitment Alternative. They were very professional at all times and had a variety of qualified candidates for us to interview.

Bianca Sengos, Principal, Attractivo Design


“A fantastic recruitment agency. The Recruitment Alternative has found our last six employees. They’ve saved us thousands of dollars and provided us with a first class service. I wouldn’t even think of using anyone else”.

Geoff Quinn, Sales Manager, Blue Nova, Sydney


“The Recruitment Alternative were a dream to deal with and the limited time constraints we placed on them was not a problem. They were able to source a number of promising candidates, this enabled me to focus on my tasks which caused little disruption to my daily duties. This is the first time we have used The Recruitment Alternative and I am sure that it will not be the last as the entire process was simple, smooth and achieved our desired outcome for a minimal cost.”
