Testimonials

I was introduced to deliberatepractice recently and found Peter and Carrie to be very professional, personable and astute. It is clear that they are not just a sales focussed recruitment firm, but they really understand what true HR is about. I recently engaged them for a couple of hard-to-fill, Asia-based roles. They took the time to take a detailed brief, and their shortlist of candidates was well-screened and very strong, compared to what we

-Senior Internal Recruitment Leader – Telecommunications Industry

In what was the most significant strategic appointment in over a decade for our company; the team at deliberatepractice led by Carrie Harding facilitated a recruitment process that was more holistic than any experience of ours in the past. Their interest in ensuring we profiled the role and characteristics correctly from the outset, led to a shortlist of candidates that presented robust debate in our senior management team. The selected candidate

I have worked with deliberatepractice when heading up the HR department/function in various companies, during significant periods of organisational change.

They easily navigate through the ups and downs of change while having some fun along the way.

-Viktoria Filimonova | HR Manager | New Balance

We engaged deliberatepractice recently at our annual Sales Conference to deliver training to our frontline managers. It is common in business today where, technical people are promoted into Managerial positions. They often attempt to solve a business problem with a technical solution and don’t always have the tools. deliberatepractice gave our managers a toolkit that focused on adaptive leadership and a framework to assist them with decision

-Sonya Law | HR Manager | Sullair

I engaged deliberatepractice to undertake a search for an individual with non-complementary skills. I thought it was going to be a real challenge to find a suitable candidate given the unique requirements of the position. The assignment was taken on with great enthusiasm and delivered a superb result. I was thrilled when deliberatepractice presented me with not only one candidate but a shortlist of candidates who all met the brief. The

As a candidate with deliberatepractice, I have been really impressed with the support and the service I have been provided with. It has been a real personal and genuine experience, which makes me believe that if I get this support as a candidate, I would want to engage with deliberatepractice as a customer.

-Eric Troost | Senior HR Leader

We engaged deliberatepractice to run an outplacement program following the redundancy of around 50 positions across numerous locations. A key point of differentiation was the proactive and professional way in which deliberatepractice managed the project. They contacted each individual personally and quickly and they were very flexible in terms of service delivery options. The feedback from participants who used the outplacement service was

-EGM HR | ASX listed Australian industrial services company

We engaged the services of deliberatepractice to find a senior level HR Director for our Asia Pacific operations following a failed search on our own. I was blown away by the quality of candidates deliberatepractice found and I'm positive that we could never have attracted the quality and quantity of candidates on our own. The slate of candidates ranged from good, better to best and our choice was very difficult. I literally wanted to
