“During our internal application process, the CPI Consultant had practical and helpful advice.  She explained her reasons well as to why she was suggesting changes to CV’s, applications etc.  Positive – and this has been the most beneficial factor.  I’ve watched staff go into their sessions quite heavy / dark in nature, to come back very positive and grateful of the assistance. Good outcome at this end.” People & Culture Manager (client)

“Michelle Staples, the consultant, providing outstanding support over a 6 month period for a group of about 28 people whose roles were being outsourced. A series of workshops were run which were very well received and, over and above providing core technical support and assistance in CV writing and developing interview skills to help our employees find new roles, Michelle empowered them to make decisions and take their future into their own hands."  People Culture Manager (client)

" I just wanted to say thanks helping me with my interview technique.  It has been very beneficial and stimulating and has made me aware of many areas that I can certainly brush up on! I can even call it "enjoyable" and definitely well worth the investment. I couldn't have asked for better group to "criticise" me!  Marketing Manager

"Once again thanks for all your help - I have my contract now - so a happy end to my search.  I think what really helped was that you did not let me lose my faith in my ability as it would have been easy to have lowered my sights and taken a much lesser role.  However you did encourage me to keep my sights set high and really at this stage of my career I need to be still in a good position and also this is what I wanted too.  Thanks for believing in me and helping me on my way!"  Business Development Manager

"I engaged Terry McCloy to help me manage my transition. Terry has been absolutely brilliant. I’ve received first class assistance along the way and his insightful, experienced executive recruitment skills have helped me enormously to manage my way through the change after 20 years inside in same company.  I’ve had 4 serious job offers since I started with Terry. 3 were in NZ, and all were quality CE/GM roles. Whilst I can’t go into what I’ve turned down, I can say that thanks to Terry I’ve chosen a role that fits me well and one in which I am certain I can deliver enormous value."  CEO

"Just to let you know that I have just today accepted the new role and will be starting in a weeks time. 
Thank you very much for your assistance through this process - I found your advice and suggestions to be very beneficial and would not hesitate to recommend your services to others."  Manager
