    Katherine Moyo

    Communications Specialist 

    ​Vanessa contacted me through LinkedIn because she was looking for a communications specialist with experience in producing disclosure communications. I was having a break from the workforce to care for a family member. She was very patient and understanding and found me a terrific role which suited my skills and experience and the kind of work that I was seeking.

     She has been a pleasure to work with and has been very responsive and upfront. I have had varying degrees of success with recruitment consultants in the past but Vanessa is very genuine and interested in matching candidates with the right role and culture. She would be the first person I would contact should I need recruitment services in the future.

    Product Management Candidate

     

    ​I just wanted to drop a quick note to let you know what an awesome job Amanda Glacken did with a recent job application of mine. Although I didn't end up taking the job, Amanda was brilliant every step of the way, from prepping me for the interviews,
    communication throughout and being positive and professional even after I had turned down the offer.  

    If that's how she treats candidates, I can only imagine how well she is looking after your clients.

    Lisa Jackson

    Senior Product Manager, DDM - Equifax

    ​I was recently made redundant for the first time in my career and was very anxious about getting a new role.  Amanda at Parity was amazing at helping me feel worthwhile and calm about getting a new job.  She made a real effort to understand my skills, motivation and what I was looking for.  She then worked tirelessly to find the right role for me , keeping me up to date with her progress.  Once she found me a role and secured an interview, she provided me with interview tools to ensure my success.  She kept me informed throughout the process and made the whole experience easy and stress free.  I would have no hesitation in recommending the team at Parity  as they care as much about the individual as they do the business they are recruiting for. 

    I was recently fortunate enough to meet Amanda at Parity when I was looking for a new role.  She took the time to know me: my skills, motivation and what role I was looking for, then worked tirelessly to find me the right job.  Once she secured me an interview, she gave me some great interview tools to ensure my success.  She kept me informed throughout the hiring process and made the whole experience easy and stress free.  I have already recommended Parity to friends looking for roles.

    Gaurav Vemala

    Investment Reporting & Data Analyst - Lazard Asset Management

    Victoria has been a great pleasure to work with. Being new in the Australian market while I was looking for an appropriate role to switch, It was very clear that Victoria goes the extra mile to ensure things are smooth not only while finding the best role for a job seeker but also after one has settled in on their new role and guide them through their career as well.

    In spite of her tight schedule while leading Parity and running so many events & research, she does really take time off to contact her clients often to make sure things are going fine and help fix them if necessary.

    She and her team are actively involved in the industry & market research, which provides valuable information to anyone looking to recruit or to be recruited.
    I highly recommend Victoria and Parity consulting to candidates and employers for their expertise, experience and high standard of professionalism in what they do.

    Sandra Kanan

    Senior Manager, Investment Products  - Perpetual

    Having been a candidate, I found Victoria to be extremely helpful in guiding me through the recruitment process. Her regular communication, expectation setting and honesty were refreshing. She helped advise me on a number of different factors relating to my particular situation around career development and salary expectations. I hope I have the pleasure of working with Victoria again in the future.

    Product Management Professional

     

    Quick about me - last 3 years into Product management and worked with 50+ recruiters during my last 6 years in Australia :). Recently applied for a role with Parity Consulting and got a chance to work with 2 AWESOME recruiters in your team, Amanda and Ai. I was really impressed with their very friendly, positive attitude and very clear, honest communication with me.  They helped me throughout the interview process and guided me well. I think some credit goes to the leaders of the organisation as well for promoting a healthy and positive work culture. I was really impressed with the coordination between Amanda and Ai. Both of them are one the best recruiters I have worked with in the past 16 years.

    I know the importance of healthy work culture in an organisation as I have recently experienced closing down of an organisation because of toxicity in the work environment. Would like to thank Amanda and Ai for all the help and would definitely recommend Parity Consulting to my company and to my network for any recruitment related work.

    Kelly Kerr

    Senior Manager, Advocacy & Technical Services - AMP

    As a recent candidate, I was extremely impressed with Victoria’s highly professional and authentic approach. Victoria has an exceptional knowledge of the market, a comprehensive understanding of her clients and takes time to gain a thorough understanding of her candidates. Victoria was very responsive and supportive throughout the entire process. I highly recommend Victoria and the team at Parity Consulting.

    Katelyn McGeachie

    Senior Product Consultant, Projects - AMP Capital

    Searching for new roles after 19 years in the one company was a daunting thought, but from my very first interactions with Alex and Victoria from Parity, I knew that this recruitment firm were serious about promoting the role of Product Managers and the skills that they can bring to companies.


    They are advocates for those who have experience within the product management field and recognise ideal roles for candidates either in the form of a product management role, or other consultative/project roles in an organisation due to their depth of knowledge and interaction with stakeholders from right across the business. It is reassuring that there is a specialist firm and people within it, such as Alex and Victoria, who make it part of their role to understand the markets they operate in, actively undertake training and development of their internal staff and proactively create product and marketing courses for their candidates to continuously update their skills and knowledge to ensure they are top employable candidates – not just a number on the payroll.

    Graeme Cowan

    Resilience Speaker & Director - FactorC & RUOK?

    Victoria recently engaged me to be a keynote speaker for a client breakfast. The topic was 'Building a Mentally Resilient Workplace', a topic she was very passionate about. She and her team worked hard to make sure that the session would add the most value to her clients, by researching their most pressing issues. She also assembled a great expert panel which followed my presentation to ensure the right knowledge was in the room to answer the questions.

    Testament to her research and her team's hard work, the breakfast was a sell out and had 130+ senior leaders attending. More importantly, the clients were enthusiastic in their praise post event, and rated it 4.8/5.0. It was a pleasure working with Victoria. She and her team care deeply about adding value to their clients. Highly recommended.

    Eleanor Ottaviano

    GM Enterprise Optimisation & Change - AIA Australia

    Victoria has assisted me in the recruitment of a number of roles and each time she has considered the needs of the role carefully, gained an understanding of the culture and the right fit for the role, and as a result provided a high calibre of candidates each time. Her approach is to put forward quality (not just a focus on quantity), and as such she has always carried out appropriate screening ahead of time to ensure the recruitment process is as effective and efficient as possible. Highly recommend.

    Michael Gurusinga

    Product Manager, Payment Acceptance - Cuscal

    Adam is a highly professional individual who understands the needs of the clients and candidates.

    I recently dealt with Victoria when she was assisting me with a role I was interested in. Victoria was professional, kind, supportive and kept me well informed during the process.

    Peter Smyth

    ex-COO & Head of Product - Principal Global Investors

    Victoria stands out from other recruiters by genuinely listening to the client’s brief and identifying quality candidates who not only fit the bill but have the cultural attributes to work successfully in the organisation.

    Annette Torrington

    Director - Platinum Warranty

    I have had the pleasure of working with Victoria and the Parity team on both sides of the fence – as a candidate and again when I was recruiting. Victoria and her team have a very professional yet personal approach. They are very clear about time frames and expectations – I was never left wondering or having to follow up. The person I recruited through Parity was outstanding and the process was incredibly smooth. Cultural and team fit are very important to Victoria and it means that if she or the team send you a candidate, you know there is a strong chance they will fit right in. Victoria’s experience means she thinks outside the box and gives great insights about the market and how to achieve your recruiting goal. I highly recommend Victoria and the team at Parity.
