What you have said about us:


Hi John

Best wishes

Hi Jonelle,

Now that I am starting to get into the swing of things here at Manly, I just wanted to say thank you (and also the multiple people at HSR that I bombarded with e-mails) for all the help and support you’ve given me over the last year and a half (I think it really has been that long since I first contacted HSR!!!!) on my journey of getting to Australia— which, with all of the paperwork, was a journey in itself, but totally worth it! You and your awesome crew made me feel confident about the process of getting to and beginning work in another country, while keeping me informed, no matter how many questions I asked! Also noted, you called to check up on me to ensure I was settling in okay, which I really appreciate!
I will definitely pass the word on about HSR, because you do amazing work!
Thanks again,

Hello Jonelle,

Just wanted to thank you for all your help during the process of moving to Australia. Everything you have done has made it easier for Michael and I. It is a huge life change to move so far away from comfort. But we are ready and HealthStaff Recruitment has made it a pleasant progress.
Again, thank you.

Dear Health Staff Recruitment,

Both Ruth and I just wanted to say thankyou so much for all of your help and guidance along the way. The whole process has been made so much more pleasant, easygoing and informative dealing with yourself, and also we would like to say thankyou to your colleagues who were also most helpful while you were on holiday. Just to add as well that the process has not in any way felt stressful, and has gone very smoothly for us because of the service we have received.
Exciting times ahead! Best wishes for the New Year to you as well.

All the best, Ruth & Daniel, UK
So far so good

we are really enjoying being here and have already started the process of permanent residency. Job is really good and I have landed on my feet with a good team.

HealthStaff Recruitment have been really helpful in assisting me with getting a job. The process of finding one was very quick and the support I got throughout was great. Tatiana and Tanya who I mainly dealt with was really kind and friendly, which made the process a positive experience. It helped to have a friendly email checking in on how I was, giving good advice to my questions. All in all a great experience!

Thank you.
