What are our clients saying about us?

  • I would highly recommend Sarah to anyone who is looking to fine-tune their preparation during the job hunting process. Sarah has a special ability to connect with people, understand what drives them and help them focus on what is really required. This enabled me to walk into the interview with lots of confidence and I ended up getting the job too which was the best news! Thanks again.
    DP: International Marketing Coordinator, Dunedin, NZ
  • Sarah makes HR easy. Twelve short months ago we had no HR policies in place and had constant employee performance and management issues. Now with Sarah’s help and guidance we have managed our way through a performance management process with an employee (and achieved a great outcome for both parties), have robust and reliable HR policies in place and have a much happy and healthier team. Always uplifting and motivational, Sarah is much more than an HR consultant to us – she is a mentor. We cant recommend Employ Me Now highly enough.

  • I'm still relatively new to New Zealand and have been trying to write a professional CV and cover letter without any help for the two years I've been here. A mutual friend referred me to Sarah because I finally decided that maybe I need a bit of assistance. I am so very grateful for that introduction. I now have a clear understanding of how CVs and cover letters should be written. I highly recommend Sarah's services at Employ Me Now.

  • Sarah Bond’s ‘Employ Me Now’ pack has proved invaluable in our recent recruitment of a new office administrator. I’ll never hire anyone else without it! The step by step process is easy to follow, templates for candidate correspondence save a huge amount of time and the structured interview templates and behavioural questions remove all the usual hassle involved in hiring someone. Thanks Sarah, great work!
    Sarah Girvan, Managing Director, Immersion Marketing Management
  • Just a note to say thank you very much for the interview survival training. It’s great to know we have such wonderful support people like yourself in our area. Your knowledge and experience is of such great value to us all. Especially in the smaller business area. I look forward to working with you more in the future.

  • Sarah is an engaging and empowering careers and human resources professional who is able to - in her positive, creative and assertive style - change the way we perceive ourselves. She is a person who can make a difference in our lives.
    Iris Verkasalo: HR Business Partner
  • I was very happy with the way the meeting went. It was good to get the responses and information from the staff the way we did. In the past getting them to open up and talk was like trying to extract ( hens') teeth. Thanks so much it's great to work with someone who has your enthusiasm and people skills. Regards, Allan McKillop, General Manager, Laser Electrical
    Bright Sparks – Team Innovation & Communication Meeting
  • I would like to take the opportunity to thank you in assisting me in my pursuit of my career. I have been very busy the last few weeks and your Ninja workshop helped me focus on the right actions to take. I'm resigning from my current role and will shortly take up a new position. This new role is ideal as I'll be able to draw on and built my professional expertise. So, after about 3 years working part time and being a mum I'm back doing what I'm passionate about. Thanks again.
    CT: Starting My Ideal Role
  • Sarah helped me find a new travel consultant at Travel Partners. I felt like I had my own 'in house' HR team as she guided me along every step of the way. She helped draft my job ad, manage the c.v. screening and gave me some great interview tips. I actually enjoyed the process. Thanks again for all your help Sarah and I'd definitely recommend Employ Me Now! to anyone who wanted to learn how to recruit the right people.
    Denise Holmes Travel Partners Ltd.
  • My husband and I own our own IT business in Dunedin and when we started we knew nothing about being in business. Being in business is so much more than just selling your services. It’s all the other things in the background that make it work like a well-oiled machine. We found out fairly quickly that having employees is quite a responsibility! We first employed Sarah Bond to help us with some Interview Training. Thank goodness we did! We had no experience in running an interview but by the time Sarah had finished with us (which was only 3 hours!) we felt confident and positive about interviewing potential employees. I used to get so nervous about interviewing but now I don’t even think twice about it! Sarah also helped us with the dreaded Performance Appraisal process. Having never completed a Performance Appraisal we were really struggling preparing for them. I gave Sarah a call and she came to our workplace and did the Performance Appraisal training. Again within 3 hours we felt confident and ready to move forward with the process. I would not hesitate to make Sarah Bond my first port of call with ANY staffing issues. She has so much knowledge of the HR industry and she puts it in a way that is easy to understand. She is a pleasure to talk to and her follow up service is second to none.

  • "Sarah's guidance and interview coaching was invaluable in securing a competitive commerce graduate position. From polishing off my CV to phone interview preparation to technical interview questions - Sarah was there all the way through providing encouragement and dynamic tips on how to stand out from other applicants. In taking the time to know me and get a feel for my strengths and weaknesses, Sarah was able to provide effective coaching on how to focus positively on selling myself and my best attributes. I 150% recommend Sarah's services for anyone wanting to gain that "x-factor" and to go into the daunting job market feeling confident and well equipped to handle any situation.

    Employer Interview Training
  • This really works!! I have been self-employed for 20 years so to go back to working for others was rather daunting. Sarah’s highly effective and empowering Employ Me Now programme began with focus questions about what I am really looking for in employment, who I would like to work for. Sarah made constructive suggestions about my CV which facilitated me being able to present my skills and strengths on paper in a way that stands out to prospective employers. The interview coaching was absolutely transforming as Sarah gently guided me to what interviewers are looking for by asking certain types of question. The lights came on inside my head as I “got it” – how to present myself in person and communicate who I am and what I bring. Sarah’s extensive HR experience and knowledge gives a strong base for this programme. Her belief in me, encouragement and passion along with her professionalism and supportiveness made me feel that I had an employment guru on my side. Thank you Sarah!
    Linda Duff, Visionary Leadership Coach from Dunedin
  • As a former HR Manager, Sarah offered me her advice and guidance in attaining my first professional role. This was no mean feet! Equipped with a BA in Geography and a minor in Environmental Management, from Otago University I wished to start my career in planning. Sarah provided me coaching throughout the entire process by meeting me prior to interviews, after interviews, and finally advising me through negotiating my contract. Sarah provided me invaluable help in all aspects of job seeking including identifying what type of workplace and role I work best in along with which areas I could develop for the benefit of my employer, what the different types of employers are after, improving my CV, mock interviews (immensely beneficial), how to manage difficult interview questions, and how to follow up from the interview. Sarah was a rock through what is largely an unenjoyable process for most of us. She provided me with valuable support material, was constantly encouraging and intuitively supportive. Her wealth of experience and personality enabled me to gain a position with the Waikato District Council as an Enquiry Manager under the Planning umbrella. I am enjoying my new role immensely. Sarah is both professional and inspiring, and I would recommend her services to anyone seeking employment.
    Becs, Planning Inquiry Manager from Hamilton
  • I want to start by saying Thank You Sarah! If it had not been for all the helpful information I received from Sarah I would not have had the confidence or skills to answer the questions at the interview. Sarah was amazing with her knowledge of the interview process. She helped me to put together a dynamic CV that stood out from everyone else. It was logical and exactly what your future Employer wants to know about you. I now have a job I love, and I now do the interviewing. I found Sarah to be very honest and open with me. She really helped me nail that job interview.I have always found them nerve racking, but with all the help Sarah had given me, I walked into the interview full of confidence – Thank you again.
    Jacqui , 4Trades Facilitator Otago Chamber of Commerce Dunedin
  • With the help of Sarah and her interview coaching I was able to gain confidence and valuable skills in an interview environment. Sarah helped me to focus on my current skills, what I enjoy doing and creating a career with a future that would get me further in life. I learnt how to sell myself and my skills to an employer and make myself and my CV stand out from other applicants. Sarah equipped me with the tools I needed to answer interview questions effectively. Sarah’s genuine support and enthusiasm really encouraged me to succeed and aim high with my employment prospects. I have been able to land myself a job with a future and I love it.
    JD, Pharmacy Tech, Dunedin
  • Sarah, thank you so much for your help with preparing for my recent interview. You were able to think of many angles that I had not, which made the interview so much easier and more relaxed. While I did not get the job, without your help I would never have got down to the last 2 of 7 interviewed. I was also very impressed with the way you kept in contact and followed up throughout the process. As well as providing a great service, you showed a genuine interest in my current role, the position I was applying for and me as a person. I would definitely recommend your services (and in fact already have!) to my friends and colleagues.
    Andrew, IT Specialist, Dunedin
  • I  found Sarah to be extremely helpful in making a daunting experience both comfortable and approachable. She not only provided me with tangible and useful information, she also gave me confidence in my abilities and skills and the motivation to promote them. I would highly recommend Sarah to anyone as I have confidence in her knowledge, insight and ability to get the best out of everyone.
    AJ Ackerman, HR Professional, Auckland
  • To come out of my session with Sarah with a clear structure on what I needed to do to prepare me for my interview was definitely worth the investment tenfold. I was able to put the scrambled interview questions I had in my own mind into a format where on the day I was giving clear, concise and confident answers to any questions asked of me. Surprisingly enough I really enjoyed the interview. Knowing that I had done the preparation gave me an enormous amount of confidence. I’m happy to say I got the job!
