Our success rate is 99.6% but for the rare ones that don't work out, it's usually due to unavoidable change in circumstances.

But don't worry, even if something unavoidable happens, we offer full replacement guarantee if the candidate leaves within 3 months.

We have observed that the most attractive companies that have the most impressive retention rates tend to have a good blend of salary and career progression, flexibility.


The most important tool is communication with team members. Alternatively, if you have a project you need to deliver and you cannot afford turn over, talk to us about a protected offshore team, immune to the poaching in the local market.

Yes, we carry out MOJ police checks on all candidates and will provide you with the proof of outcome.

Yes, we can offer a credit check as part of the pre-employment process.

In the tech industry it can be quite sensitive to supply and demand challenges. It pays to understand the market because sometimes paying slightly more now, might save you repeating the hiring process in the near future. It's better to spend money on quality rather than trying to save a few bucks.

We have up-to-date information for different roles, so we can help guide you.

We would recommend 1 technical interview, 1 behaviour-based interview, and sometimes a third more casual discussion.

It is worth bearing in mind that we will have already processed the candidate through our efficient screening process before we send them to you. 

We will have already deep-dived into their current role, what they're looking for, their motivations and how they might be of value to your company.

To start with, you can think about your current team culture and the types of people that tend to succeed in your team. What would you need to change in order for people of different backgrounds to succeed and be part of the team?


Work on changing that first. We work with many clients who have firm diversity mandates and we are happy to offer blind CV screening of candidates to ensure there is no unconscious bias in this process.


Diversity is so much broader than just having a mix of people in the team, it's having a mix of people who all feel like they belong and can completely be themselves.

We are heavily involved in TechWomen, which is a division of NZ Tech, and regularly sponsor events.
