“I engaged the services of Blackman Mansfield after building a relationship with Mel over a year or so. I immediately felt comfortable with Mel and enjoyed some networking events where I could meet her other clients, with whom I have a lot in common. I manage various Finance and Administration teams and have used Blackman Mansfield for temps in our accounting area. Getting to know Jo has also been a pleasure and both have been very professional but still down to earth and friendly. The candidates they have put forward have been of a very high quality and a great fit for our culture. Mel and Jo have put a lot of energy in getting to know about our culture so I feel I can trust their judgement. Mel and Jo are building a brand to be proud of and this will guarantee their future success.”

Damien Hern, Centacare

“The service received was very timely and professional at all times, with all communication being undertaken at the nominated time. In a busy schedule having a reliable service delivery partner is gold. Mel and Jo looked after all of my queries and needs and presented a range of great candidates. It was obvious that they had gone beyond the norm to source candidates and managed to fit it all around my busy and changeable schedule. My recruitment requirements were well defined upon engagement but benefited from refinement by the Blackman Mansfield team in ensuring all considerations and options were explored and described well. This certainly added to the successful outcome achieved. As previously mentioned, communication was always on time and all other aspects of the recruitment were well planned and delivered in consideration with my requirements. Thanks Jo and Mel, you have made the process something manageable and achieved a great outcome for me.”

“My decision to use BMR was very simple – it was based on a personal relationship Mel and I had established in the past and the ease in which we relate to each other. Mel doesn’t push her services which is rare in the industry when compared to other agencies/recruiters. Our conversation naturally led itself to discussing the gap I had in the business at the time. Mel is extremely personable and easy to talk with and the brief I gave her for the role, she grasped quickly and managed to fill both our temp and perm roles with AH-mazing candidates. I would not hesitate to utilise Mel again – I was very impressed with her level of service, her swift turnaround times, and the assistance in general that she gave me along the way to get these 2 x placements right.”

Holly Newell, Senior People & Culture Advisor, Statewide Super
