Professional Recruitment Partnership

Professional Recruitment Partnership (PRP) 

Free up your time by outsourcing all or part of your recruitment process to ConsultANZ through our Professional Recruitment Partnership program.

Professional Recruitment Partnership is ConsultANZ’s Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) solution. It allows our Clients to transfer all or part of their recruitment to us if they are struggling to fill specific roles or do not have an in-house team to attract the best talent. PRP is not outsourcing of recruitment in the traditional, contingency sense. Our service is far more consultative and customizable than standard recruiting.

At ConsultANZ we put our Clients’ needs first.

Professional Recruitment Partnership (PRP) is mutually beneficial and designed to develop long-term partnerships, ensuring you are left with time to concentrate on what’s core to your business – managing the operational parts of the business.

ConsultANZ are committed to placing the right person in the right job and we pride ourselves in providing our tailored and managed solution to meet your People resourcing challenges. We invest considerable time in researching and getting to know the intricacies of our clients’ businesses including market positioning, long term business strategies, competitor profiles, internal culture and organisational change, outlook, and future direction.

Our clients appreciate the ConsultANZ business model which is based on a “technical” approach as opposed to being sales driven.

Benefits of outsourcing your recruitment through Professional Recruitment Partnership:

We will help you save money on advertising, high staff turnover rates, poor quality hires and lengthy hiring process.


We can provide: contract recruitment services (for short to medium term assignments), permanent recruitment services or a combination of both (for a temp to perm arrangement). We can recruit all levels of personnel from junior through to executive level applicants.
