I was super impressed with the service provided by Automotive Recruitment Australia. After getting nowhere with direct applications, I arranged to meet with Natalie at a mutually convenient location. We went through my employment history and discussed where I wanted to go next. I had an interview within days and got the job offer soon after. I would thoroughly recommend Automotive Recruitment Australia to anybody currently looking or considering a role change. Thank you so much!

Tracy Rough April 14, 2018

I just wanted to again thank Natalie for all her work in landing me my new role. The entire process has been really enjoyable, and so seamless.

As I have made comment to several friends, Natalie, as far as I am concerned, is absolutely the best in the business, and I will be referring anyone I know in the industry that is looking for a change, straight to her.

I feel that I definitely owe her a coffee at the very least! Thanks again.

I have found Natalie to be helpful, honest and reliable.                                                                                                              There are not many recruiters that actually call you back, but this is not the case with Natalie.                                      Thank you Natalie for helping me to find a role that suits my skills.                                                                                            I will definitely be in contact, if the need arises.

Jason January 31, 2018

I had the pleasure of meeting Natalie Smith Director/Recruitment specialist as I was applying for a role in the Automotive Industry. Her knowledge of recruiting in the industry and the approach she takes to deliver the right candidate to her clients is nothing like I have experienced with other recruiters. I had only applied for 1 job however Natalie managed to line up an extra 2 options for me that would suit my experience. I was offered the 1st role I interviewed for. Thanks Natalie for your support- your determination, open communication & knowledge are outstanding. I would highly recommend Natalie to anyone seeking a career in the Automotive Industry.

Matthew Thomasse January 18, 2018

Four and a half years ago I applied for a role in the automotive industry, this is when I met Sonya Poci. Within no time Sonya had me placed within a respected and prestigious dealership. Sonya is one of the most professional, dedicated, passionate, honest and best recruitment agent I have ever come across in my working career. Sonya is the first and only recruitment agent that actually cared about my needs and expectations as a candidate unlike other recruitment agencies and agents that I have unfortunately dealt with in the past. Automotive Recruitment Australia, Sonya Poci - Thank you for your ongoing support. You are the true definition of - The Best Or Nothing!

Angela Gasparinatos January 11, 2018

I can honestly say that at every stage of the interview process Natalie was professional, informative and easy to talk to. Natalie was constantly working for the best outcome for both the company and the applicants.

Benjamin Hext January 10, 2018

I have been in the automotive industry for over 20 years and have always relied on my reputation to get me that next job. However, since migrating to Australia and not knowing anyone in the industry, I decided to register with Sonya at Automotive Recruitment Australia which was the best thing I could have done. She is definitely well networked and has her finger on the pulse when it comes to knowing the appropriate positions available. Her professionalism and efficiency are unmatched, and I will always call on her when needed. Thanks Sonya much appreciated.

Adrian Valentine January 10, 2018

I would like to thank Natalie for her assistance and guidance in helping me secure my new employment.

From the time of our initial interview, I was very impressed by her knowledge of the automotive industry and her ability to quickly assess my strengths and skill set, in order to find the right position best suited to my needs.

This was also complimented by her fantastic communication and follow up skills, to ensure I was updated with the latest development of future employment.

Natalie's friendly disposition and professionalism made it a most pleasurable experience throughout.  Therefore, I am very appreciative of the excellent service provided and I highly recommend Natalie to future employers / employees requiring a professional service.

Gerry Rech October 16, 2017

It was my pleasure to have worked with Automotive Recruitment Australia when seeking a new career opportunity.

Their professional and re-assuring attitude was a welcome surprise. They followed up and communicated with me directly and efficiently, giving me the support required when seeking new employment.

From the first interview, Natalie’s professionalism made me feel relaxed, whilst finding out about me, what I wanted for my future and my experiences.

A step above expectations was the ongoing follow up by Natalie and Jem, after I was in my new position to see if it was meeting my expectations and I was happy, even 6 months later!

They are a pleasure to deal with and I would recommend using Automotive Recruitment Australia for seeking career opportunities

“Don’t settle for mediocre, expect excellence”.

Excellence is what I received from Automotive Recruitment Australia.

I simply cannot thank Natalie enough for the professionalism, enthusiasm and guidance she provided in landing me a position that has exceeded my expectations.

Natalie’s knowledge and passion for the automotive industry, her honesty throughout the recruitment process and the constant communication has been a breath of fresh air.

How she manages to make you feel like you’re the only person for the job, is a skill in itself, but, she just seems to know exactly what is required to make you successful.

Natalie, all I can say is thank you for everything, for being a gem recruitment specialist and for being someone I will now call friend for life.

You’re an inspiration and cannot recommend you highly enough to anyone looking at a recruitment specialist to assist with getting the right person for the job.

David Fontanarosa June 20, 2017

I am very grateful for Natalie’s recent guidance and assistance with helping me into my new role. She’s extremely friendly, professional and was enthusiastic about me landing my dream job!

I was very impressed with her Automotive Industry knowledge; taking the time to explain the role I was applying for and giving me little pointers to help things along.

She’s down to earth, very easy to communicate with and gives you a sense that she genuinely cares.

Thanks a million!

Our candidates success stories

Dear Natalie,

It is with my warm heart I take this opportunity to sincerely thank you so much for everything you have done for me this past 2 months throughout the recruitment and interview processes surrounding my new career path and recent welcoming to the team at Nexus Aftermarket.
A little over two months ago, I was incredibly uncertain and unsure about where things were headed for me, and my professional working status. I knew what my capabilities were and I knew where my heart sat, however I was headed for a position that I knew wasn’t really where I wanted to be, and some hard decisions had to be made. Despite the opportunity of owning the tittle of “Parts Manager” and all that comes with it, I turned away from that in pursuit of something better, stronger, something more me, in hindsight now, I’m so glad I did.
I cannot tell you how thrilled I am to be joining Jim, Paul the team at Nexus and how excited I am to be joining a leading force in contributing all of my experience, knowledge and dedication into the trade sect of the Ford parts business and its development within the Ford dealer network.
You really have been wonderful to me Natalie, and the professional manner of which you have guided me through is “unknown experience” has simply been first class.
I believe everyone in life has defining moments that become the catalyst in paving the way to the people they are destined to become. I regard this experience and the events of this role achievement as the new beginning of my “serious” working life. And I owe a lot of this to you.
I really didn’t know what to expect at the beginning of all of this, and now some two months later and with the achievement/s you have assist me with, it has given me a new sense of belief, commitment and confidence that I always knew I had, but just needed a little bit of help to rekindle.
I honestly feel like a new man, and that I am on the verge of a new and exciting phase of my life and I cannot tell you how wo
