From people who have been where you are now!

"I engaged Vicky at talent co:lab to employ an Account Manager to work from our Hamilton office.

Following an initial briefing Vicky picked up very quickly the type of person we wanted and the process from that point was seamless.

From creating and placing the advertisement through to vetting, presenting a shortlist of candidates, coordinating the interview process and then the reference check and offer stage, Vicky kept me informed every step of the way.


Our recruitment was ultimately successful and I will be using

talent co:lab for future recruitment requirements."

Dean Sorensen

"We used Vicky Blake at talent co:lab to recruit a number of recent positions.

She went above and beyond expectation.

She is very thorough in her approach and guided us through the process making it seamless.

Great personal service that you don't get with a big agency!"

Meredith Crawford

Business Operations Manager

"I have just been placed in a new role by Vicky Blake who was fantastic throughout the entire process.


This was my first experience with a recruiter and it was fabulous having a single point of contact for information and communication.


Vicky was great at explaining all the aspects of the role and making sure that this was a great match for both parties.

She even checked in with me a few weeks after my commencement to be sure all was going well.


I felt supported and valued, thanks very much Vicky."

"Vicky was so helpful throughout the whole of my recruitment process and was always keeping me up to date with what was happening, definitely recommend going through talent co:lab."

Emily Smith

"Working with Vicky was the first time I have worked with a recruiter.

I was looking for a new challenge in a new city and came across a listing of Vicky’s.

She got in touch and suggested a number of roles - one of which I asked to be put forward for.

Throughout the interview process Vicky supported me with industry knowledge and relayed feedback from the hiring staff. She checked in pre and post interviews, bridging and facilitating communication and discussion between myself and the business providing great guidance that arms you with a lot more than when you are searching and applying on your own.

Vicky’s guidance was a instrumental in helping me understand the market and gave me confidence in my value during the hiring process."

"I would firstly like to say a huge thank you to Vicky for being such an amazing person.

I applied for a job on seek which was advertised through talent co:lab, and honestly it was the smoothest interview process I've ever had.

Vicky was always in communication and set up the interview time and date for me. She has checked in with me continuously since our first interview to see how I am settling into my new role.

Thank you so much for all your support Vicky, couldn't have asked for better."

"I couldn't recommend Vicky more!

Vicky was such a pleasure to work with. She had my best interests in mind from the beginning and was really enthusiastic about making sure that I was put into a company that she knew I would benefit from and most of all fit in to.

From previous bad experience with a different recruitment agency, I was hesitant to try again but I am so grateful that I did.

I am now so happy where I am working and I wouldn't have done it without Vicky."
