“The Veterinary Council of New Zealand has used McLaren Associates a number of times now to recruit new staff. Recently I had my first experience working with them to recruit our new CEO. I was very impressed with the professionalism and quality of service we received from McLaren Associates. Their communication and input was timely, succinct and helpful. The recruitment went without a hitch. I am pleased to say we were able to appoint from a talented pool of applicants and the whole process was skilfully managed by the Consultant within a tight 10 week time frame. I have no hesitation in recommending McLaren Associates and would happily use their services again.”

“This is the first time I have successfully used an agency to do recruiting for us, we did try a couple of times years ago with very bad results. This time was very successful, easy and produced great results so thanks to all involved. I will have faith to call on you in future and will tell others particularly in the Not for Profit sector how good we found your services. With all that is happening in our organisation at present it would never have been possible to do this without your assistance.”
