Testimonials from Tradestaffers

“Tradestaff has been a great stepping stone for me and I am glad to have got the permanent position at the company that I have been placed with since I got to New Zealand. Everything worked out perfectly for us as a family and I am proud to say that I was part of the Tradestaff team“

  • Boris – Carpenter - Auckland

“I just wanted to write and say a big thank you for all the work the last year and a half.  My experience with Tradestaff has been exceptional.  You have provided so much support and help during my time here.  It is sad to be leaving, but I would not hesitate to join the Tradestaff team again.  Thanks again and all the best in years to come”

  • Tor – Carpenter - Queenstown

“As you may or may not know, I am leaving Tradestaff up from Monday and will be starting a new job at Dulux. Before I leave, I wanted to thank you personally but also the whole team for giving me an opportunity in the first place. I will never forget our Skype interviews while still in Serbia dreaming about New Zealand. You gave me a chance and I just hope that I fulfilled your expectations. I was always giving my best to represent Tradestaff in best light possible. Although I am starting a new job, Tradestaff will always hold a special place in my heart. Once again, thank you for all your help, support and work you have provided, and I sincerely hope this is not the last time I hear from you.”

  • Gvozden – Fabricator/Welder - Auckland

“Thanks for great service and great support, I'm very happy for the new job and at the same time sad for leaving such a wonderful family that has been my backbone in New Zealand. Thanks a lot Charlotte and Nikita for always calling to make sure all is well with me and a special thanks to Laura and Wellington staff that always looked after me when I needed help with whatever I called them for. 

It has been a great pleasure and experience to work for Tradestaff “

  • Ronaldo– Welder - Auckland

“I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you. I think we all tend to forget that this virus has an impact on everyone. We're all experiencing different emotions throughout this difficult time. I would like to applaud the Tradestaff team from Auckland for doing their best to keep the ship afloat. Every phone call that I've received was with the utmost respect, friendliness and professionalism. I always feel reassured after each phone call and for that I would like to say thank you. You're a great team and I'm proud to say that I'm working for Tradestaff. “

  • Eugene – Fitter/Turner - Auckland

“Hello everyone, just a quick message to say thank you for ringing and checking up on me and everyone else it’s so nice to get that phone call just out of the blue. I hope everyone else in the office is doing good and all family and Friends are well, and if you need a chat I’m here to just drop us a text, email or even a call. Take care and thank you so much appreciated”

  • Antony – Hammerhand - Queenstown

“I am compelled to write and extend my sincere gratitude for your continued help, dedication and support throughout my entire career with Tradestaff even before I became a part of the team. You have been very firm but fair open and transparent and your level of professionalism is exceptional, most of all thanks for treating me like a real person, like someone you know or a family member (even though we have never met) and not just a number.”

  • Sheldon – Plumber - Auckland

“We can’t tell you how grateful we are to all involved at Tradestaff for giving us the opportunity and help in getting us here and also helping us to settle in more ways than one. If ever we can repay this by giving advice or help in any way for future prospects making the move over to NZ for you guys then please feel free to pass on our email addresses and we can help with any guidance needed in making that all important decision. All the best for the future”

  • Paul – Bricklayer - Tauranga

I want to take this opportunity to say thank you to you, for putting your trust in me back in 2016. It was then when you and I had a Skype interview. Believe me if I say I was pretty nervous giving that interview but I think even more nervous coming over to New Zealand not knowing what to expect. I know I looked back at the past 2 years and 9 months and I can honestly say it was worth it. There has been a lot of fun and laughter and encouragement from Tradestaff and I say thank you.  without you guys this would not have been possible for me to move to new country and to start off a fresh.

Tradestaff has become a family to me, my family away from home my work family and my support.

Thank you and all of your team you guys are Superstars and I don't think any of you know how much it means to me. Thank you for your kindness your friendliness and most of all your support I will never forget what you and the rest of Tradestaff have done and meant to me. We do not know what the future holds but we do know who holds the future.  Once again I salute you and I solute your fellow team members with great respect love and Thanksgiving I bid you all farewell.

I do hope that we may still keep in touch. God bless you all. You guys are AWESOME, LOVE YOU ALL 

  • Martin – Fitter/Turner - Tauranga

I just want to thank you for being an amazing recruiter. You have always been of tremendous help whenever I needed it and it was a huge pleasure working with you. Working with you has taught me the meaning of customer service and I will strive to follow your example. I just want to thank the Tradestaff team for making all this possible. Thank you for everything, you are the best of the best

  • Cobus – Fitter/Machinist - Auckland

“Over 7 months ago I received a job offer from Tradestaff to work in New Zealand as a carpenter. My experience with Tradestaff has been very successful and I have recently started the process of submitting my application for residency in New Zealand. Emigration to New Zealand and to a new work environment can be stressful and is a lot of effort, especially at the beginning. Since day one Tradestaff have provided me all the necessary support and advice at all stages of my relocation to New Zealand. Transitioning into work has been easy and I highly recommend others take this great opportunity.”

  • Vladimir – Carpenter in Auckland

“The team at Tradestaff have been amazing; they were able to offer me a permanent job so I could secure my work visa and they also assisted with relocating me to Wellington to work after I had completed a few months’ work in Christchurch”
