“We had the privilege of having Pipeline Recruitment place our General Manager for the business unit; the process was excellent, well managed and very cost effective. The quality of the applicants Pipeline was able to deliver and the professional approach they followed was excellent.”

“Before speaking to Pipeline Recruitment, finding a suitable candidate was a long drawn out and often unsuccessful process. Ian took the pressure off and used his extensive contacts to find the ideal people in a really sort period of time. Thanks Ian, excellent service, you will be our go-to person for future recruitment needs”.

“Unison Contracting have engaged Ian Beattie and his team at Pipeline Recruitment many times over recent years for the recruitment of senior and specialised roles. Pipeline are incredibly responsive to the needs of our organisation. They are consultative and honest in their approach, always feeding good market information back into our business. Ian and his team ensure that the candidates are right fit for the role and our organisation, and they will not compromise on this criteria. The candidates submitted are consistently of a high calibre and a good team fit. We’ve ended up hiring some real stars!”

“Over the past four years I have had the pleasure of working with Ian Beattie and his team at Pipeline Recruitment to assist Unison in making over 30 appointments across its business. The positions Ian has helped us to fill over this time have ranged from trainee roles through to key senior management positions – all to the same end, a successful placement of an appropriately qualified candidate who has quickly been able to be integrated into our organisation. Critical to Ian’s success has been his understanding of not only the requirements of each position recruited, but also an appreciation of Unison as an organisation and the person to whom any successful candidate would be reporting. He recognises the importance of knowing the culture of our organisation and “team fit” in securing a successful placement. Ian’s professionalism, timeliness and willingness to go that extra mile has seen a very effective partnership develop with Unison. I can thoroughly recommend Pipeline to any business that may be considering securing the services of Ian and his team in the future.”

“The team at Pipeline Recruitment are more than HR consultants – they appreciate what it takes to make a business work. Before beginning the recruitment process, the Pipeline team spent considerable time with us, making sure they accurately understood 3R and the way we operate. I would go so far as to say, their dedication to each appointment feels like they are finding staff for their own business. Great work guys.”

“Service Foods were set to acquire a local Hawke’s Bay Foodservice company and engaged Ian Beattie and his team from Pipeline Recruitment to recruit a General Manager and a Sales Manager for us. The timeline was very short, and we were very impressed with the calibre of candidates that were offered for interview, as well as the professionalism of the entire process. Ian hit the nail on the head, and two of the candidates were employed in a short amount of time”.
