Recruitment Studio: delivering stress free and positive recruitment solutions

Bridgette Johnstone and Jo Henderson have been at the helm of the recruitment world for over 30 years combined.

As two of the top recruiters in Auckland, not only do they come with decades of experience, connections, credibility, and a reputation for being great at what they do, but also with a load of passion, commitment and a fun-loving attitude, so they felt it was time to step out and start doing things their own way. It’s their personal and honest touch that sets them apart.

Having recently celebrated their third birthday, Recruitment Studio came to fruition from their shared passion for providing their clients with positive, stress-free recruitment solutions. Launching the Recruitment Studio had been a long held dream for them both. “We wanted to do something that reflected who we are, something values driven, and what we view as successful recruitment”, says Bridgette.

Delivering end-to-end generalist recruitment, Recruitment Studio work across a huge range of industries, supporting clients and candidates with temporary, permanent and fixed-term contract solutions from vacancy right through to placement.

With an office based on High Street in Auckland’s CBD, the team service Auckland with 85% of business currently, as well as other parts of New Zealand, into Australia and most recently, the United States.

Providing attentive account management, the team will work to understand your company culture, ensuring they match you with candidates who will strengthen and complement your team.

Delivering a service and results that align with their core business values; honesty, transparency, and value added partnership, quality of service is high on the priority list. “We want to make sure our clients walk away happy. Going through the hiring process can be an incredibly stressful process for businesses and what we want to take away from them is that stress”, explains Bridgette.

Seeing the real value in creating strong personal connections, both in the office and in life in general, is at the core of Recruitment Studio. Committed to fully understanding both clients and candidates, they make sure every interaction is packed with value and a human perspective. Certainly, when the Covid-19 crisis hit New Zealand, this was a huge benefit.

“In addition to our recruitment services, our clients also come to us for market insights, as a resource to learn what is going on out there. That’s why we are so big on that connection with our clients, we keep those lines of communication going. It’s invaluable.

“This time of year is often one when we find candidates look to change roles, and within that comes a lot of factors to consider. We can help you by talking through the process, asking the right questions to help make things clearer and understand what you’re looking for in your next role”, says Jo.

Once you have your reason for a change clear in your head, it is easier to keep your search focused. Talking to the right people and staying positive, you will be well on your way to finding the right exciting new job, or even deciding your current job actually is where you want to stay.
