Recent Testimonials from Candidates and Clients

Julie headhunted me for my current role as Export Business Manager. We specialise in IQF beef and chicken products for market leading companies within the Asia Pacific and Middle East regions.

When Julie contacted me I was extremely humbled, yet wasn’t sure if I was quite ready to take on a management role. I was proven very wrong. Julie’s wealth of experience and career coaching skills helped me prepare for the interview process and I came through with flying colours. I’ve now passed probation and extremely pleased I’ve started a new chapter in my career.

Bart R, Export Business Manager, 2018

Julie Parsons has been assisting us with the recruitment of staff for the past 17 years in both senior management and support roles. At every opportunity, she has taken the time to gain a strong understanding of our business and always puts forward candidates with a good cultural fit.

Julie has continued to provide our organisation with competent, confident and professional staff and we are grateful for the effort she goes to towards promoting the values of our organisation to prospective employees. We will no doubt continue to work with Julie Parsons in the future and have no hesitation in recommending her to others.

Gail W, General Manager, 2018

I have worked with Julie and Premium Consulting for over 15 years. She understands the company, its culture and my expectations as a CEO. She also appreciates what I expect from a recruitment agency in terms of understanding the role being filled, providing advice on the package being offered and working to find the right candidate with the right fit for the organisation.

These are important elements in having a recruiter who adds value to the recruitment process.

Andrew Y, CEO, February 2018

Recruitment Team Premium Consulting

Julie has been helping us recruit exceptional people for over 10 years in both Australia and Indonesia. We really appreciate the way Julie has taken time to truly understand our business and culture. She typically gets involved with our sales and marketing recruiting as well as operational management.

Over the years she has found excellent talent for our business and we are very pleased with the service she provides.

Steve R, MD, Oceania, February 2018

I just wanted to express my appreciation for your efforts working with me during the recruitment process for the position I have just started.

I have to say that you were without a doubt the most efficient consultant I have worked with, you kept me informed throughout every step of the way which made the experience much more personal than a typical recruitment process and were not afraid to go back to your client on my behalf to correct contractual issues and prompt them as required to keep the process moving.

I will be happy to recommend your services to anyone either looking for a job or requiring recruitment assistance.

Jason M, Sales & Installations Supervisor, February 2018

As a candidate, I would recommend Julie Parsons: she takes the time to understand the placement company’s culture and skill requirements and each candidate to obtain the best match. At every stage, I was treated as a person and Julie always met her commitments as to when she would follow up.

Brenda G, Supply Chain Manager, 2017

A lovely way to end the year. I found the whole process from recruitment through to placement went very smoothly thanks to Julie. I was kept informed of progress and provided guidance throughout the process and was very satisfied with the outcome. I would not hesitate to recommend Julie to either an organisation or a candidate in the future.

Jane S, Marketing & Communications Executive, 2017

I found Julie to be professional, communicative and very helpful throughout the whole interview process. As a potential candidate and as it was my first time seeking employment through a recruiter, she made me feel at ease with her friendly approach.

It was excellent to be able to gain insight and seek advice from her and her constant follow up was greatly appreciated. Having used Recruiters in the past to hire staff, I was very pleased with her structured recruitment process and felt that she sincerely understood the specific resourcing needs of each business she represents. I would have no hesitation in recommending her services in future.

Yohann A, Business Innovation Manager, 2017

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the smooth & informative process that you provided, from the day I called to enquire about the position of Maintenance Manager, to the day I signed the employment contract. I felt as if I was talking to a friend during the entire process which in turn made me feel comfortable to call you for additional information or just clarification.

I have now with this experience passed on your details to many of my colleagues here at Toyota Manufacturing who would be looking to find their ideal position with the same service provided to myself.

Thanks again for the pleasant experience & matching myself to a great challenging position.

Tom P, Melbourne, Maintenance Manager, 2017

I found Julie to be very professional as she recruited me for a new role in Brisbane recently. She understood her clients brief very well, and while warm and friendly, was efficient and direct during our interactions. I hope to work with Julie in the future.

Patrick H, Operations Manager, 2017

I called Julie Parsons about a vacant role at one of her clients which was advertised on Seek. She quickly questioned me over the phone to gather an understanding of my background. After the discussion she asked that I send her my resume.

I sent it through and on the same day she contacted me to set up a meeting with her the following day. In this meeting she gathered enough information from me in 45 minutes to present a profile to the potential employer. Two days after our initial contact, I had an interview set up with the potential employer. I highly recommend her quick effective service.

Julius G, Sales Graduate, 2017

My experience with Premium Consulting was great. Julie is amazing. From start to finish she was extremely professional in handling the recruitment process. She was patient in understanding my needs and was able to identify my strengths which matched her client’s requirements.

She always had the answers to all my queries and was very prompt in her responses. She is an excellent recruiter. I would recommend her to any organisation that would like an excellent professional to handle their recruitment process for them.

Sri D, HSEQ Systems Coordinator, 2016

Julie Parsons was an absolute professional and went above and beyond what most recruiters would do to assist in endorsement of me to the prospective employer. She was more than willing to offer solid advice as well as interacting between myself and my new employer to secure the best possible outcome for all involved.

Brandon B, Production Leader, 2016

Premium Consulting delivered a professional recruitment service for me, it was an interpersonal experience I will not forget. Julie was very helpful in the process and answered all my questions and enquiries, also her interview tips and information given is what helped me land the job.

Julie has promised both a pre and post relationship with me during the job so this is very reassuring and I know she will be there for my support. I recommend Julie to future clients and candidates as she will make a rational non-judgmental decision in choosing the correct candidate.

Lisa L, Marketing, 2016

Job hunting in a new country seems like a daunting task for anyone who has made a transition into a new geographical location, but the sheer professionalism exhibited by Julie of Premium Consulting made the entire process smooth.

Aarthi, NPD Food Technologist, 2016

Just a quick note to thank Premium Consulting and yourself for supporting me in obtaining my new role, I very much look forward to joining my new team on the Fraser Coast and have no doubt future employees within the company will also be screened with the same excellence.

John M, Operations Manager, 2016

Hi Julie, I just wanted to share how much the job description you described meant to me. The attention you pay to the details of each opportunity was clear to see, because the ones described match not only my interests but my abilities.

What you did was really motivating and kept me uplifted in my application. I really appreciate that you had taken such an interest in my job career and I am grateful for the way you stepped in as my personal “career sleuth!”

Craig C, Sales Engineer, 2016

Can I just say, I think I already love it here. While its only my first day, the culture, the office, everything just feels so nice, everyone is super friendly, and I feel at home already. I wanted to thank you for your work with placing me in this role. You were so lovely and friendly, and I think very intuitive.

You read me really well, and were always honest, open, and took the right approach. I appreciate your efforts in locking me down for the role, as you could tell, it wasn’t a given that I would take any role at this time, but you were reassuring, and open, and it really was great to have that for a change.

Eric C, Marketing Specialist, 2016

My job seeking experience with Julie has been an entirely positive one, and I would not hesitate to recommend her services. Julie has been in regular communication with me throughout the entire recruitment process and this helped me feel comfortable and supported throughout what is usually a very stressful experience.

I would like to thank Julie for her professional and friendly approach and assistance in getting a chance to relocate back to the Hunter Valley for a new and exciting role.

Colin, Sales Engineer, 2016

Over a 6 year period I’ve had the pleasure of dealing with Julie at a professional level on two separate occasions as she has arranged the interview and recruitment process leading to eventual overseas job placements in both instances.

Her attention to detail, persistence, enthusiasm and willingness to go above and beyond the norm to ensure that any obstacle was covered, was key to both job offers being made. I would have no hesitation in recommending Julie to anyone looking for assistance within the recruitment process.

Jon Ross, UK Candidate, Maintenance Manager, 2015

Recruitment Team Premium Consulting

My name is Michael Smith. I work for a global metallurgical supply company, with its Australian headquarters based in Sydney. When in Australia, I work remotely from Cairns. I am the Director of our Indonesian and Philippine operations, and consequently spend a good deal of time in both regions.

I have worked with Julie Parsons at Premium Consulting for several years now, on a variety of projects. While Julie is based in Brisbane, I have never found it an inconvenience to contact her regardless of which region I happen to be in. Her efforts to understand our exacting requirements are second to none.

Recently, we have had the need to fill a senior Accounting position in our Jakarta office. Through Julie’s extensive contacts in Australia and internationally through NPA network, she was quickly able to connect with her partner firms based in Jakarta and commence a thorough search on our behalf. Whilst the candidates were sourced locally (in Jakarta), the entire project was managed by Julie in Brisbane, including preliminary screening, interviews, profiling, recommendations and ultimately, hiring.

We now have a new senior accountant starting in three weeks, and we as a company are grateful for the enormous effort Julie and Premium consulting put into this case. As a thoroughly satisfied client, I have no hesitation in recommending Premium Consulting for both Australian and international professional placements.
