Mike is an enthusiastic and personable character. He maintains strong communication throughout his engagement with you. As someone who was seeking the next opportunity, I felt confident that Mike had the spirit and industry know-how to match me with a gig that I would enjoy. One of the top experiences I have had when its come to Recruiters
I found Mike to be very professional and personable. I was impressed that Mike conducted a thorough ‘informal’ interview with me upon making contact, which allowed for him to build up a strong understanding of my background, experiences and aspirations and definitely helped him align my skills with the right position. Always responsive in getting back to me and keeping me updated through the interview process, Mike has also been great at responding to any questions I’ve had when onboarding in the new role. I would certainly recommend Mike and Valrose to help find your next opportunity.
Mike is a genuine pro. He reached out to me for a position he thought would be a good fit, and he was right on the money - I'm now starting a dream gig with a fantastic company that I couldn't be happier about. Every step of the way, Mike was on point, and really went above and beyond to ensure the role was a good match for me, and that I had everything I needed to ensure a quick onboarding. Couldn't be happier, and couldn't be more grateful for Mike's great work!
Mike reached out to me when I started looking for a job and helped me find one that paid better and was more aligned with my short term goals. I was also in a rush and he was able to get me an interview straight away, it really helped me out when I was in a pinch.
Mike is a thorough professional with a great human touch. He is an inspiring and driven consultant. His positive attitude and the way to finding the right talent is outstanding. He stays focused on his job until successful completion.
Mike is well respected at my company. The level of service and ethics he provides is proof that someone can be in the recruitment game and be genuine. I am always happy to work with Mike on any projects and would recommend his services any time. Thanks Mike
I have found the Valrose team to be conscientious listeners when it came to our hiring needs. Tina and Leighanne started our working relationship to really get to know our team’s ethos, how we deliver software and what sort of developers would fit in. They followed up with a different interview format which resulted in us filling our two vacancies the same day. We feel very comfortable working with Valrose and confident they can deliver on their commitment.
I reached out to Tina to assist with a role we were struggling with in our Product team... The main reason for us selecting Valrose was due to their commitment and support to the local Dev community. They never approached us directly, call it inception or great inbound marketing. Tina took time to understand not only the role, but our values and culture. Tina was very diligent and project managed the process like a real pro and as a result we were able to secure an amazing candidate for our team. Couldn't be happier with the outcome and the process and have no hesitation in recommending Tina and Valrose to others
Tina’s an exceptional talent specialist with a focus on exactly the right values that are crucial to effective recruiting. She and her team have a phenomenal rapport with hiring managers and candidates alike, is an authentic presence in Perth’s network and is a lovely human being to boot - all with a nuanced understanding of the broad spectrum of capabilities that need to be considered when looking for great people. Searching for progressive, dynamic innovation talent requires persistence, patience and focus and Tina has always been brilliant at maintaining all three right up until the perfect candidate has been identified. Tina is my go-to in the Perth market and I’d recommend her for all product and engineering role searches.
I had the pleasure of working with Tina when she was the person to go to for all our recruitment needs. Tina’s approach to finding Ipsotek great talents was very effective and while she was not part of the Ipsotek team she sure felt like one of us and cared about the business and always excelled in finding us our next star.
Being new in town and locking for a job, I naturally had to deal with multiple recruiters. This made it clear to me, that Tinas friendly way, her professionalism and her honesty are not common. There are the exception. I am very thankful for the opportunity, she helped me to find.
I tasked Tina & Zeynep with a near impossible task of finding a Lead Data Scientist who is a senior leader but still very hands on in the Data Science practise. They did such a fantastic job in presenting some top shelf candidates and out of all the agencies we used for this role, Valrose was the only agency who managed to get not 1, but 3 candidates through to the final rounds of interview and ultimately landing us the successful candidate. Thank you for your hard work and help on this one.
Also as a side note, I would like to also say that it has been a genuine pleasure to work with all of you. Yourself and Zeynep have changed the way I view recruiters and you do this practise the way it should be done. You are the definition of the below quote:
“Transactional recruiters will be replaced by algorithms. True consultants who know how to bring unique talent to the table, and manage the conversation through to consumation, will not”
Tina worked with BNK Banking Corporation Ltd on the recruitment of our new Business Systems Analyst. We found Tina and the team at Valrose to be proactive and committed to finding the perfect person for the role; not only technically but importantly from a cultural perspective too. We will definitely work with Tina and the team again and we recommend them very highly.
Tina really listens to what you need, and seeks to find what you have asked and more. She not only shortlisted and screened all the candidates but was able to provide templates and interview guides making our lives so much simpler to focus on the task at hand! The calibre of candidates was really high and it made it really tough to decide on which candidate to choose at the end!
Tina is a true professional and it is clear from the moment you meet her that she is passionate about people's careers. She understands an individual's strengths and draws on her experience to find the career most suited to them. I cannot recommend Tina highly enough, it was a positive experience dealing with her and made my introduction to the workforce in Perth a lot easier!
Tina is not afraid to lead the way in the IT Recruitment space. She is a huge supporter of women in technology and is always looking for ways to give back. I was engaged to deliver LinkedIn training with a personal branding and career focus not only to her clients but to help those she wasn't able to place yet. She has a big heart, cares about her clients and candidates and attracts like-minded people to her team. I'm looking forward to showing more people how LinkedIn can be used to build a personal, professional career brand, build better relationships and stand out for the right reasons. If you need to recruit technical staff, Tina makes it her bsiness to know the right people .
I worked with Tina for the recruitment of a number of digital roles at Seven West Media. Her knowledge of the tech space is as good as any recruiter I've dealt with, and she found some truly amazing people with very specific skills for our team - all while being a pleasure to work with. I'd recommend Valrose to anyone who needs help recruiting quality digital and technology people.
Really liked working with Zeynep, very approachable, helpful and detail oriented. I found her one of the few recruiters who are transparent, provides complete detail and feedback.
Zeynep is a highly approachable and tactful associate when connecting with potential employers. Her personality and great communication skills makes her excellent to work with.
Zeynep was a joy to work with. She has a wonderful talent in not only finding fabulous people - she brings out the best IN fabulous people. Diligent and hard working, I cannot recommend her more highly.
Zeynep has been fantastic throughout my whole process in applying for a junior software dev role. She is personable and reliable with a great focus on making sure both employer and applicant stay on the same page and that communication is key. I could not have had someone better to guide me through the transition from uni to the workplace!
I'd like to keep this short and sweet by pointing out that Zeynep has been nothing short of fantastic! She helped me find a new role at a fantastic company in just 5 days! Absolutely amazing and she knows exactly how to merry up people to roles!
In my career I've encountered and engaged a number of recruiters. Finding a good one can be a bit of a minefield. Zeynep is an all-too-rare gem in an industry that can be beset by thinking that shooting out a bunch of random messages over LinkedIn Recruiter in the hope of hitting the mark is worth a 20% finders fee thank you very much. Where an over-reliance on handballing the process of vetting candidates over to technology and software is increasingly prevalent. People hire people - not keywords. What Zeynep understands about recruiting is that, at its essence, it's about people and the importance of developing and building effective and mutually beneficial relationships over time. Have had the pleasure of working with Zeynep as a client for over a year now and she has never failed me yet. On multiple occasions, when engaging multiple recruiters for an open position, it's consistently been Zeynep's candidates that are the last ones standing. This demonstrates her deep understanding of not only the brief I've provided to her, but more importantly our business, our requirements and our people. It also demonstrates that she's damn good at her job. Highly recommended.
Zeynep helped me to locate a perfectly suited role. She was friendly, professional and very helpful at every step of the process. She went above and beyond to ensure that the transition was as smooth as possible. I would highly recommend her expertise.
Zeynep is fantastic to work with. Always, friendly, easygoing, professional and very good at her job. I’d be happy to recommend Zeynep to anyone looking to work with her in the future.
Zeynep has been a delight to work with, always bright cheery and professional. I am very happy with the role she helped me secure, and would gladly work with her again.
Zeynep is very professional and consistently in carrying the recruitment process. She is consistently providing updates to the candidates and following up the process and making sure that the process is followed though. She has the ability to understand the candidates profile for the position a company needs and her judgement that the profile fits the position by understanding a candidate's profile rathen than judgement from what's written in the cv againts what the job specs are.
Zeynep is a professional, passionate recruiter with a real drive to achieve results. After recently finishing study and entering the job market, she was incredibly helpful with guiding me through the job recruitment process and placing me in a position that suited my skill set. I would highly recommend Zeynep to anyone looking for a placement in the technology industry.
After graduating, I struggled considerably with the difficulties of entering the job market and finding employment. Zeynep's tireless and professional work granted me access to opportunities for appropriate positions, and ultimately, my first graduate job. She has been enormously helpful and patient throughout the entire application process, and would be my first recommendation for anyone seeking a job in tech.
Zeynep really knows her stuff and she has helped me throughout the whole recruitment process. If it wasn’t her, I wouldn’t have landed my current role as a Full stack developer. While interviewing for the role, she was consistently providing me with great advices, which made it seem very simple and straightforward process, and it seemed like a familiar territory for me to thrive in. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a role in IT sector.
Zeynep has recommended me to 2 roles that I have accepted now, and a host of interesting and relevant roles that I had to pass over. Zeynep has been a pleasure to work with, and I would happily see her again when I am next out job hunting.
