Wood Recruitment has been the best agency I have dealt with over my working career. From the get go Peta was friendly, attentive to what I was looking for (temp/contract work) and confident in what she had to offer. It may have just been great timing for all parties but my process was extremely fast. I had an initial phone call with Peta after my profile was found on SEEK, then we had a video chat a few hours later and I was offered a temporary assignment that same day...to start the following morning. I am truly grateful for the assistance Peta and Wood Recruitment have given me and look forward to future opportunities with them :-)

The whole experience with Wood Recruitment was excellent. It was great meeting with Saskia. She not only paid attention to what I was looking for but also explained how everything will work. She was professional and understanding of my situation and clearly explained everything to me. I would highly recommend Wood Recruitment for anyone looking to further their career.

I highly recommend Liam from Wood Recruitment! You won't find another recruitment agent in Perth with as much knowledge and helpful advice to give as Liam goes above and beyond for his clients. Thanks again Liam.

After locating my profile on SEEK, Peta at Wood Recruitment managed to secure me a position after a 3 day turnaround i.e emails, phone calls and in-house meet & greet. She was friendly, attentive & understood my need for temp/contract work. The process was fast and hassle free. I am truly grateful and appreciative for the assistance Peta and Wood Recruitment have given me and for the Company that I am about to start work with.
