  • It has been a pleasure dealing with Karma and the team at Metro.
    Karma is very responsive to messages and has always managed to find us relief staff.
    These staff are of a high calibre and have fitted into the team very well.
    Would not hesitate to recommend Metro to other fellow Practices and their managers.

  • Since 2008 Caroline has been my one and only agent. I have absolutely loved working through Metro and with Caroline. After slowly easing me back into the workforce Caroline has constantly found me wonderful roles that were completely right for me, while offering me helpful advice along the way. More than just an agent, I wholeheartedly recommend her.

  • We have used Metro Recruitment for several years. They are consistently responsive and they have provided excellent staff, especially short term reception staff. (We would have loved to have employed several of the people full time if there were openings!). Metro have consistently worked hard to meet our needs in a very timely and professional manner. They certainly have gone the extra mile for us, and I do not hesitate in recommending them.
    – Dr Alistair Somerville //General Practitioner and Director, Cairnhill Health Centre, Epsom, Auckland
  • As our agency has grown over the last 8 years from the original 4 staff, to now 20, we have worked with Caroline to recruit account management, creative, finance and admin employees.
    Caroline has taken the time to fully understand our culture, our passion for excellence in all aspects of our business and has constantly put forward excellent candidates, 12 of whom are making significant contributions to our continued growth and success.

  • Metro Recruitment put me forward for a unique nursing role which suited all my strengths, values, past experience and requirements.
    Within a short period of time I advanced into a management position. This is when I used Metro Recruitment’s support to recruit nurses to fill further unique nursing roles. Every time they put through excellent candidates who had the experience and values that suited the roles. I would definitely recommend using Metro Recruitment for your health recruiting needs.

  • Karma at Metro Recruitment found me a practice Nurse position in May this year. Throughout the whole process, she was very supportive and hands on during lock down level 3. We arranged video calls and set up seminars to prepare me for the interview and I was well informed about the practice. As someone, who is always very nervous during interviews, Karma really helped me with gaining the confidence and knowledge I required. Karma, also took the time to understand me as an individual and not only who I was on paper. She made the whole process very easy, and did not make me the whole aspect of applying for a new job daunting. She was very prompt and clear in her communication between me as the employee and relaying what the employer wanted. I highly recommend Karma from Metro Recruitment, the process of applying for a new job is very already intimidating, Karma makes the whole process so much easier.

  • Caroline at Metro has helped us find some of our best candidates. She understands the type of consultant we’re looking for and doesn’t waste time with putting forward people who aren’t right, and when we find someone we like, she’ll help us secure them. On top of that, she’s a lovely person to deal with.
    – Claudia Macdonald //Managing Director – Mango Communications
  • At Auckland Museum we have a cycle of regular activities that need marketing, alongside one-off events and special projects. We frequently need to bring in marketing personnel with specialist skills to help accelerate a project or help with workload. At a time like this, when you just need the right person for the job, right now, Caroline has been the first person I have called. Over the last year I’ve needed a handful of people for short and long term projects and what I value more than anything is the leg-work that Caroline does that results in her bringing me just one candidate, the ‘perfect’ person. When you and your team are at capacity you don’t have time to interview a heap of people and every time, Caroline has offered me someone who has met the brief and delivered the task at hand. Ultimately you use a recruiter to narrow the options and come with the best solution. Caroline does this every time.
    – Denise Cohen //Head of Brand & Customer Engagement, Auckland War Memorial Museum
  • I have dealt with Karma Hooper from Metro for several years, and have found that she delivers a consistently high standard of temp and permanent candidates.
    Karma is lovely to deal with and always responds quickly to my requests for assistance.
    I would highly recommend Metro’s services.
    – Jeanne-Marie Buckland //Administration Manager, St Marks Breast Centre
  • What sets Caroline and the Metro team apart for me is their integrity. I’ve recruited candidates with them, as well as been a candidate myself over the years, so I’ve seen how they operate with integrity from both sides.

    They have never offered me a candidate that didn’t fit the brief.

    They believe in creating a partnership to understand and grow your business and I’m sure they have many clients and candidates loyal to them for that reason.

    – Jillian Stanton //Candidate
  • It is always a pleasure to work with Caroline! I was so grateful when she placed me in a contract position when I was briefly in Auckland a few years ago; so when I moved back permanently she was the first person I contacted. The team at Metro Recruitment are so responsive, provide valuable advice, I would always work with them and recommend them to others.

  • We have had a long-standing relationship with Metro Recruitment for several years. Caroline has always been extremely proficient to deal with and has an excellent understanding of our business needs and the type of candidates that we require. I would have no hesitation in recommending Metro Recruitment as a well-established and professional recruitment company offering for both permanent and freelance placements.
