What We Do

We specialise in placing Business Support and mid-level management staff into Temporary, Contract, and Permanent jobs. Our area of expertise is wide ranging and focuses on jobs in the Corporate Services space. The salaries range from $40,000 to $150,000.

Client Services

We’re flexible, we’ll tailor the service to suit the parts you like and need.  Our core focus is on providing staff to Private Sector, Not for Profit and Quasi Government organisations.

We’re not corporate, we’re personal, and that means we are able to attract a totally different calibre of candidate and can offer you a more flexible service. We’re not mainstream, we’re specialists so you get more advice and information sharing from us.

We’re not big and slow to respond, we’re responsive and agile so our candidate database is more manageable and better utilised to search and find great people.

We take a team approach to what we do so you don’t just have an Account Manager, you have the entire team working behind the scenes to come up with solutions and find great people for you.

We offer a “not for profit” fee structure to reflect our commitment to our Community and to the organisations that work for passion and for the greater good.

Sometimes, bigger isn’t better, give our friendly, determined team a call and see the obvious differences between big and small.

We listen, we’re responsive, and we deliver.

We place candidates into Temporary, Contract and Permanent jobs.

Our area of expertise spans all aspects of Corporate Services and includes:

  • Administration and Office Support
  • Accounting, Banking and Financial Services
  • Business & Policy Analysts up to intermediate level
  • Call Centre and Customer Service up to middle management level
  • Event Management and Support
  • Graduates and Interns
  • Human Resource, Learning and Development (support & advisory level)
  • Legal Support & Lawyers up to 5 years PQE

Testimonials

The service was - professional, accurate and timely!

I was provided with two candidates who were of high calibre and I was able to select one of them which was very pleasing as I had a very short timeframe to meet.

Huri

I have recruited my whole team through Forté – Individually my team are awesome but what I love about the process with Forté is it was never about hiring an amazing individual, it was about building a high performing team.

This is what we have done together with great results!

Amanda

A wonderful first experience of working with Forte – wouldn’t hesitate to work with you again or recommend to others. Your team was prompt, thorough and knowledgeable, really understanding the type of candidate we were looking for. To have someone take care of the entire process was worth the investment and we are delighted with the appointment that has been made. Thank you so much Brigid and the team – super service and a real dedication to getting the right outcome for us as a client.

Rachel

Good level of contact throughout the recruitment process, grasped a good understanding of our needs and presented great candidates.

Candidate Services

We know our stuff in the New Zealand job market and we’ll share our knowledge with you. Our approach is welcoming, friendly and personal, to get the best results for you and your career.

Our candidates tell us they love that we listen, we give advice, and we respond to their calls – you wouldn’t think that was too much to ask, but apparently this is what sets us apart from the big fish.

We’ll take the time to hear your story, we won’t judge, we’ll offer advice and we’ll take the time to understand what’s important to you.  We each have our own story to tell.  Call us to share yours and you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how we can help you in to a great job.

We place candidates into Temporary, Contract and Permanent jobs.

Testimonials

Forté consultants keep you well informed and are really supportive. Forté found me my first full time role and made the process so easy that I went back to them when I was ready to find my next role.

Allison

A big thank you to Tracey, Sophie, Jayme and everyone at Forte who have placed me various temp assignments and who have always just been so helpful and a pleasure to work along with!! Thank you to you all.

Sam

Megan is a great communicator and always responded promptly. She also went the extra mile for me for my placement. Really appreciate the gift that was sent to me once I was placed - very nice touch :) The office is also friendly and vibrant and fits your brand well.

Morgan

The registration process was very thorough, the intimate nature of the sit down chats made it comfortable so that I was able to really absorb any information.

The team were professional and warm, and went the extra mile if it was needed.

Anna

I was more than happy with every step of the process. From my initial conversations with Tracey right through to follow up after a successful placement my expectations were exceeded. Tracey was supportive and encouraging, always supporting my best interests and in constant communication regarding applications and updates. I wouldn’t hesitate to use your services again, and would confidently recommend Forte to others seeking recruitment assistance.

Lindsay

When I was made redundant I registered with several agencies, but only Forté kept in touch regularly, including during each temp assignment I was on. Every person I dealt with in the office was both friendly and professional. I have had no problems whatsoever in the past nearly two years with Forté - and they found me permanent employment!
I have recommended Forté to several people who have reported back to me that they found the staff there helpful, friendly, professional and welcoming, too. I recommend Forté 100%.

Heather

Just a quick thank you for getting to know me today. This was a whole new experience for me, other country, other city, other people, first time on the train, first time in town...and then I got lost on top of everything... not even to mention the rain and wind. But... then I met nice people and at the end of the day it was actually an amazing experience. And now I am not so scared anymore.

Maria

It’s easy to complain about people and services but I strongly feel that good service should be recognised as well. I’ve used recruiters over the years as an employer and also looking for work myself. I can honestly say, hand on heart, that Tracey has been the best I’ve dealt with. Whilst unsuccessful in the role I was applying for what impressed me was the fact she communicated with me all through the process what was happening. When she couldn’t come back to me at a time she had arranged she would let me know instead of me wondering what was happening. And even when letting me know I was unsuccessful, she rang me rather than sending an email.
