Client Testimonials

Butler HR provides the best of both worlds by capturing the essence of a regional recruitment agency in terms of personalised approach and understanding of local employment needs but delivered with the professionalism and slickness of a capital city recruiter. Having been on both sides of the Butler HR recruitment process as a client and an applicant, I can testify to the alignment of the process and outcomes for the employer and the jobseeker that Butler HR offers.

Mr Gareth McKeen, CEO-The Cram Foundation

At the end of 2012, Butler HR was contracted to recruit an Executive HR Manager with a range of skills and attributes that would help Greenacres Disability Services move towards the requirements of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). Butler HR were able to capture the strategic requirements posed by the NDIS and marry this with an understanding of Greenacres' mission which led to the recruitment of an excellent candidate who met the demanding criteria. Critical to attracting the best candidates was the reputation of Butler HR and the professional manner in which they conducted the recruitment process. Greenacres was very pleased with both the process and the outcome.

Mr Steve Beard, former CEO of Greenacres Disability Services and the Flagstaff Group

Our organisation has used the services of Butler HR on several occasions for both short term and permanent recruitment solutions. Scott Butler designed creative approaches to ensure we attracted high calibre candidates to positions we had previously had difficulty filling for lack of suitable candidates. Scott would explain his reasons for suggested approached which were always based on best practice recruitment techniques and the latest research coupled with what we needed and wanted for our organisation. I have developed an excellent working relationship with both Scott and his colleague Rebecca Cunningham which enables me to contact them periodically for advice about recruitment issues or referrals for other HR services even when we are not paying them for their services.

Ms Jo Mitchell, Executive Assistant & Media Relations Officer, The Housing Trust

I’ve experienced Scott Butler and Butler HR from both sides of the fence, initially as a candidate and latterly on interview panels for senior positions for an array of clients. As a candidate I was struck with Scott’s integrity and respect for both his client and each candidate by going beyond the literal wording of the brief, to identify the best possible match, not simply the “easy fit”. As a panel member I am continually impressed with and appreciative of Scott’s high personal standards of client care, professionalism and attention to detail in determining each candidate’s aptitude and suitability, how they compare with each other, and their critical strengths for the position to be filled.

Mr Steven Johnston, Management Consultant- 4th Dialectic

Butler HR placed me at Destination Wollongong as Destination Marketing Manager. As an applicant seeking work I was most impressed by their screening processes, ongoing interview support and impeccable communication. At all times throughout the process I felt well informed. Their expertise enabled me to find a job that matched my interest and skill set perfectly. I am extremely happy at Destination Wollongong. All in all they are a friendly team of well organised professionals.

When I think of Butler HR, I am reminded of the axiom "think Global - act Local". Butler HR brings 'capital city' sophistication and professionalism in recruitment to the Illawarra, but with an approach that recognises the cultural complexity of doing business in a regional area. This approach enhances local capabilities by attracting talent from throughout the national employment market. Butler HR is an integral part of the Illawarra business landscape, with a long and proud history of dedicated service to the Illawarra and South Coast regions. Their contribution to ensuring the long term survival and growth of Illawarra business is immense.

Mr Tony Mathew, Executive Manager Human Resources-Sunnyfield Disability Services

I have dealt with Scott Butler and Butler HR over a number of years. During this time I have found Scott and his team to be professional, trustworthy and focused on client and individual outcomes. It has been my experience that Butler HR consistently goes above and beyond the call of duty with sound knowledge, understanding and experience of the local area. Their personal approach and desire to meet the needs of all stakeholders is a rare commodity and not one I have experience with other agencies.

Mr Peter Stein, HR Manager-Greenacres

My experience with Scott and Butler HR has been of the highest professional standard. As someone seeking an executive position I found Scott consistently provided options of employment due to Butler HR's expertise, experience and credibility with executive recruitment.

Ms Maree Kerr, General Manager-Illawarra Healthy Cities

Butler HR embodies the real value of a regional recruitment firm, where the client and prospective candidates are often well known personally to the firm. Butler HR has the ability to attract the right candidate by an inherent knowledge of the personality, culture and specific skills of the individual gained from years of community engagement and networking. For the client, Butler HR's understanding of the business operations, its management and the business culture complete the advantage which a regional recruitment firm adds value to the process. It is not often that a recruiter keeps you in their network prior to, during and following your exit from a client firm as Butler HR does.

Mr Mike Leask, former CEO-Illawarra Business Chamber

I have been working with Butler HR for over 10 years and have witnessed first-hand their professionalism, expertise and commitment in meeting the staffing needs of organisations, whether it be permanent or temporary staff.   If you demand a Recruitment Consultant who provides superior service and the ability to source the best available candidates then you need to talk to Butler HR.   Scott and his staff’s ability to craft and present a recruitment process that suits your needs are un-matched.
