My professional dealings with Tracey Diamond have woven through the past 25 years. During this time, Tracey has been the only constant in a changing and at times, hostile business landscape. As a result of the amount of time Tracey has been active in the New Zealand recruitment industry and the ongoing relationships that have been fostered, Tracey has developed an expansive understanding of both the client and candidate needs to identify the best fit for a successful placement. Some of my placements through Tracey have resulted in significant career uplifts, and long-term rolling contracts of many years tenure. This is attributable to Tracey’s ability to match the requirements of her client’s needs with the capabilities and potential of her candidates.
From a personal perspective, Tracey is a fun, warm and engaging person who has always made me feel valued and has worked hard for me at times when the market has been challenging.
“I have had reason to contact Steve over the years whilst looking for employment opportunities. He has always represented me in a professional manner and keeps me informed of the status of my application, a key element in the client/agent relationship. I would recommend Steve to any one who wishes to be professional represented when engaged in a career move”

I have found Talent Vault to be open and honest, and not afraid to ‘tell it how it is.’ This behaviour is very healthy and refreshing to deal with.
Apart from fixing the global economy, I don’t know what Talent Vault could have done better.
I appreciated that Talent Vault not only passed my name on to other agencies, I was even provided names of employers that were hiring, who at the time were not customers of Talent Vault. To me this is a sign of professional care and integrity, a marked differentiator in a market dominated by incompetence, discourtesy, and indifference.

In both cases I found Tracey to be a very trust worthy and honest business colleague.
