What Client’s Say about CW

It is my pleasure to recommend the recruitment services of CW Recruitment & Consulting to you. During the past seven years, I have turned to Cressida Ward, Director of CW Recruitment & Consulting, for each new step in my career.

Cressida understands my personality and takes account of my skill sets when matching me with potential employers. She has introduced me to the right job rather than any job. Consequently, I have always found the roles which Cressida has recommended have resulted in a mutually beneficial relationship between me and my employer – I have entered a new role that enables me to learn and develop while my employer has been provided with a staff member who is competent and capable of fulfilling the duties of the role. Each time I have been very pleased with my position and remained with the firm for several years. It is only by happenstance, beyond Cressida’s foresight and control, that I have chosen to move on from each position; but each time I have returned to Cressida to place me for the next step in my career development.

Across the board, I have always been pleased with her professionalism and in particular, her insight and judgement, when recommending me for career opportunities.

Cressida has recruited roles for me over the past ten years from Receptionist, Client Service Officers, Paraplanners and Advisers. I have always found Cressida to be personable, punctual and proactive. She displays a good understanding of the needs of the Wealth Management sector, and as a result was quickly able to achieve positive outcomes for both myself as a client and the candidates she recruited. Cressida has spent a great deal of time with me, listening to me explain roles and the type of people I was recruiting. Also she understands the cultural environment of my business which was very important. Within short timeframes Cressida is able to find appropriate candidates, and everything she described to me was confirmed after meeting the candidate, whom we in many cases subsequently employed.
I have had the pleasure of knowing Cressida Ward for over ten years. During the years of our acquaintance, I have known Cressida in many capacities. We worked together for many years in agency recruitment and more recently she has provided us high quality finance staff where I work as an internal recruiter. While I have had a strong working relationship with Cressida as a colleague and now a service provider since 2006, recently she has proven to us that her integrity and results driven attitude is what we look for in our service providers. Cressida is an intelligent, capable, dedicated, and personable young woman. She is always quick on her feet, with sensible reactions in all the circumstances I’ve seen her in. I feel confident in saying that she is capable of handling any situation with thoughtfulness and maturity.
Our firm is a multi-disciplinary financial services, accounting and legal practice. We have been using CW recruitment for a number of years since we were referred to them by a long time business associate who was delighted with the positive impact that the people she found had in their business.

Our experience has been similar to theirs in that CW Recruitment is not about putting anyone in any seat and moving on. Cressida seems to have a knack of understanding the types of people that will work well in our organisational culture and generate the results we need. The speed to shortlist is great and the fees reasonable.

Because CW Recruitment appear to “get us” and in turn find people who fit, we have restructured internally so that we no longer have a full-time dedicated HR person. Instead, we use CW Recruitment for all of our hires. Our turnover has decreased significantly and given the breadth of disciplines they have recruited for us, I’d recommend no other recruitment firm.

I have engaged Cressida’s services for over 4 years and have always found her to be welcoming, friendly and professional throughout this time. Cressida is extremely knowledgeable with the recruitment process and incredibly organised with her work. She was happy and willing to share her knowledge and was supportive and patient with my requirements. Cressida is a dedicated Recruiter who genuinely cares about her candidates and clients. Cressida brings a real passion and energy to what has been a difficult, complex and long process in recruiting in regional Queensland.
