Totally Workwear Cairns has dealt with Vlasta and her team at Signature Staff on quite a few occasions, when we have been in the market for new employees. On each occasion, Vlasta has done a great job in listening to our requirements for each vacancy and forwarding the names of people who best meet our needs for the position in question. This has saved us many hours of looking through dozens of Resumes, selecting candidates and interviewing people who may, or may not, fit our needs. The system Vlasta uses to ensure we only get to see the people who may be best suited, seems to work very well and we have been most impressed with the candidates who have been put forward to us. I have no hesitation in recommending Signature Staff to any business who may be in the market for quality people to join their team.
I was too busy to work on the recruitment process for a new staff person, and working with Signature Staff was just what I needed. I can't tell you what a relief it was for them to take this job off my hands.

Signature Staff supply us with Recruitment and HR services at all levels across the operation. In all circumstances, we enjoy an honest, open relationship with Signature Staff, where our needs are understood and given priority at all times. I find it noteworthy that even though I consider this to be usual acceptable business practice, this is indeed what makes Signature Staff stand out from its competitors.

I have utilised the services of Signature Staff to find two of my key management staff. Both have worked out splendidly. Vlasta and her team are great to work with. Thank you Signature Staff.

We recently appointed Signature Staff to fill a senior position in our organisation. We required a unique skill-set from both operation and finance, which is very difficult to find. I was impressed with the creative sourcing strategy Signature Staff developed for us which ultimately found the ideal candidate we were seeking. I am grateful for their expertise and I absolutely recommend their services to organisations that need recruitment support.

Signature Staff’s counsel on personnel issues has been invaluable and your expertise has helped us move toward a stronger performance-based organisational culture. Your consultations regarding various personnel issues are always provided in a most professional and expeditious manner and your staff are knowledgably, professional, approachable and responsive.

I arrived in Cairns not knowing anyone, or where I would look for work. I saw a job advertised through Signature Staff so applied. The service from the start was fantastic and I had a job in no time at all. Thanks Signature Staff and especially Katie for the assistance. Katie kept in touch during my contract to ensure all was ok.
Bev C.

Recruitment can be extremely stressful; however Vlasta took the stress out and found us an excellent candidate in a short period of time. Ongoing follow up has also been very helpful and comforting. Signature Staff highly recommended!

Recruit Intel saved me at least 80% of the time I normally use for recruitment and I got professional service and great results. I also liked that the cost was based per campaign not per candidate; I received a shortlist of 10 candidates to choose from and have employed three. I would definitely use Recruit Intel again. It saved me loads of time & money, eliminated my frustrations and I will recommend this to others.

We needed to update our HR documents for a new round of tenders. Our policy manual was a bit outdated and after looking around we decided buying an out of the box solution was better than hiring someone, both in terms of cost and expediency. Signature Staffs complete policy manual had everything we needed in a simple, well laid out and concise design. We now regularly receive fantastic feedback regarding our internal documents and have had some great successes from our tender applications. We would not hesitate to recommend Signature Staff for ready to use HR tools and documents.

I found Signature Staff to be friendly and courteous and they didn’t muck around, finding me suitable work almost immediately. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend their services to others.

We have been working with Signature Staff for the last couple of years. Their outsourcing recruitment option suits us well. They are part of our recruitment team who market, advertise, shortlist, and interview as well as complete reference checks.

What I like the most is that we are still able to work with other agencies and their service doesn’t attract the generic recruitment price tag.

They have a solid database of candidates to tap into and nothing is a problem. Their team backs our HR team 100%.

I would highly recommend their recruitment outsourcing services, especially if you have a large team.

Many thanks for all your help with our HR issues.
You were very professional and approachable which is very important when dealing with sensitive issues in a small office environment like ours.
Once again thank you and we would not have any hesitation in recommending Signature Staff to organisations needing assistance and guidance with workplace issues.

I purchased the Signature Staff’s WHS System due to operational growth and the need to strengthen our existing safety processes. The system was very easy to implement and is user friendly. With the Signature OHS system in place, we are now able to tender for a number of government and high-calibre events, giving us a competitive advantage.
Recruit Intel had effective advertising and saved us time to go through all applicants' CVs.

Hi Vlasta

Very impressed by your hospitality staff that you supplied for our 40th Centacare FNQ Anniversary Celebrations.

Professional and personable – nothing asked of them was too much trouble.

Would highly recommend and definitely use Signature Staff again.

Thanks Vlasta

I was recently interviewed by Vlasta after applying for a new role she had advertised. Vlasta put me through my paces before putting me through as a candidate, where I was successful in securing the new role. Vlasta has been thorough, efficient, professional and friendly throughout the entire process. I am grateful Vlasta was able to match my skills to a role that excites me, and with a team that has such a great culture. Vlasta is a credit to her industry. Many thanks!
Craig Pressley
Vlasta hired a management couple for my boutique ecoresort, and I was both delighted with the outcome and thoroughly impressed with her diligence and customer service approach throughout the process. Highly recommended.
David Clarke
Working for Signature Staff is good. The staff are always friendly and encouraging. It was great to have a staff induction with the expectations of Signature Staff and also just a general outline of how they operate. It was good to know that if you had a problem or a question that they were able to help you with it. The normal hospitality work of banqueting and so on is quite boring but the people you work with make it fun. Majority of the clients I have worked for are good and would happily work for them again. It was also good to not only do banqueting but other bar work, and laboring. Pretty much satisfied with my employment.

As small business owners, it has been vital to being able to access recruitment and human resource expertise at an affordable price.

Hi Vlasta,

I thought I’d just give you some feedback I recently heard about Signature Staff. My son is back from Uni and looking for work and went to Local Company where he was told that he could leave his resume but they preferred to employ backpackers. He then went into your office and told the same story that he was back from Uni and looking for work and one of the ladies (sorry didn’t get a name) came out from her office and spoke to him at length regarding your companies philosophy of trying to place local people into local positions. I would just like to say that I think this is commendable and probably why you continue to be a recruiter of choice in Cairns.

Regards,
Dave

I would like to thank you for the wonderful candidates that were passed on, it was difficult to narrow it down.
During the process I found matrix and summaries useful tools with the resumes sent to decide who was coming in for an interview.
Great knowledge and extensive data base!
Chris Boswell
Vlasta knows how to get the right employee for your business, through her contact networks and processes.

We have and will continue to use Signature Staff for our HR and employment needs.
Eric Van Eeghen
We highly recommend Katie and Signature Staff for their helpful, friendly and professional assistance.
Advertising, short listing and interviewing were taking up so much of our time it was a relief to have the initial stages sorted and interview only the most suitable candidates.
Signature Staff showed integrity and understanding in all our dealings and offered an affordable package tailored to our needs.
Vlasta and her staff really took the time to read between the lines of my 'non-standard CV' As my past history was self-employment for over 15 years, in a variety of roles. Very few people took the time to understand the complexities of my past work experience. Vlasta and Signature Staff read between the lines to understand my skills & abilities, and how they would be suited to prospective jobs.

Dear Vlasta, Thank God you exist.. ..! We are so happy with the recent staff additions you've provided Expressway Signs. Your advice throughout the process was appreciated and the final candidates are top class. I will be recommending you to other businesses for sure. Keep up the great work.

Working with Vlasta and her team was a great experience. Boy do they know their marketplace. From the get go, we felt very comfortable with their knowledge and approach and received a fantastic choice of candidates. I have no hesitation in recommending them.
When I began looking for my current job, I phoned Signature Staff to see what they had on offer. I immediately knew I was in the right hands, and immediately stopped looking anywhere else. Throughout the whole process, the staff kept me well informed of any positions which met my criteria, and were extremely helpful in getting me to the next stage. I ended up securing a full time position, with my first choice, after only a week of searching and owe many thanks to Signature Staff. I would recommend them to anyone.

Vlasta is Amazing. Did my qualifications checks and Phone Interview and Bang after 2 yrs looking for full-time in Cairns. I finally got it a BIG thank for their help. It was a very smooth and quick transition better than my inside back-up friends that really never help to get in at the Respective Hotel they are working with. So a million thank you again Signature Staff.

My son is back from Uni and looking for work and went to a local company where he was told that he could leave his resume but they preferred to employ backpackers. He then went into your office and told the same story that he was back from Uni and looking for work and Alisha, one of the ladies came out from her office and spoke to him at length regarding your companies philosophy of trying to place local people into local positions. I would just like to say that I think this is commendable and probably why you continue to be a recruiter of choice in Cairns.
