5 star client review
Kia Ora Trade Assist staff are so good at looking after clients Rachel Barber is excellent in all aspects creating a strong rapport with all our Trade Assist boys at work , we are always well informed on all matters and quite often Rachel goes the extra mile to keep in contact not just about work but also checking in to see if we are ok if any other matters arise , like whanau I guess , she has always been available and if needed will pop out to work sites to deliver PPE gear and touch base with clients , great culture here at Trade Assist where you're more than just a number - Graham Devon

As an Irishman over in New Zealand it can be hard being so far from home! Trade Assist will take you under their wing and make it alot easier for you ! Would highly recommend working for them or hiring them for your latest project as their work ethic is probably the best I've come across out here! - James McGrath

I have worked for Trade Assist for a year and can honestly say the company has been very kind, honest and thoroughly professional in dealing with me and my needs. The Trade Assist staff are very friendly, engaging and empathetic, taking a real interest in my health and wellbeing - which is something that is very refreshing to see in the labour market. I can highly recommend Trade Assist to help you find meaningful work in the construction industry and other related fields.

Trade assist is one of the few temping agencies I’ve been to and they are by far the best. Contacted me a couple of days after applying online and had me at their office a couple of days later. Found me a great job where I'm guaranteed 40+ hours a week. Andrew is my temping agent and he is always getting in contact with me to see how I’m doing and make sure things are running smoothly. If you are ever having trouble finding a job Andrew is your guy to see.

Having dealt with countless agencies and thousands of temps over the last decade-plus, Rachel Barber has been an absolute breath of fresh air. She has hands down been the best Temp agent I've ever encountered and as such deal exclusively with her now. From the initial contact, the follow-ups, the attention to detail for our specific needs to the care she shows for the guys and her pure professionalism throughout our dealings, Rachel embodies everything you could ask for in a recruiter. I couldn't recommend Rachel highly enough and consider her a highly valued partner to our management team. PJL Limited - Power Jointing Limited (2018)
