|I'd definitely recommend Aksana by potentia|
I have had the pleasure of working with Aksana as my recruiter. She did an exceptional job matching my skills and experience to open job positions. She is enthusiastic, friendly and true professional. I'd definitely recommend Aksana to anyone who needs help finding a new opportunity.
Natalia, Developer (placed into her first role in NZ)
|It's been an absolute pleasure working with you by potentia|
“I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you and the team at Potentia for the assistance and support extended throughout the duration of my contract. It’s been an absolute pleasure working with Vanessa, Toni & Aksana and I look forward to working with Potentia in the near future.”

|With Potentia I saw our dream come true by potentia|
I always thought that finding a job in NZ from overseas it's almost impossible and that I would have to be in NZ just to have the interviews. At London Expo I met Potentia team and they offered to help me finding a position to match my skills and experience. The whole process was straightforward and Lisa was very professional in dealing with my application.
With Potentia not only I had my first Skype interview with a NZ employer but also I secured a full time position. I am happy that I have chosen Potentia to be my guide through the job searching labyrinth. It's always difficult to enter a new job market but Potentia made it easy.
Carmen, Test Analyst, London
|I would recommended coaching to others without hesitation by potentia|
I really enjoyed the coaching sessions. It's one of things where you think "I won't bother as I'm doing ok and don't think I need coaching," but when I actually tried it I was impressed with the effect it did have on me. I found it reassuring that I was on the right track with my direction here in my new role and sometimes it helps just to talk things through and say them out loud, rather than just worrying by yourself. At the end of each session I would have a big smile on my face, so that speaks volumes! I would recommended the coaching to others without hesitation.
Lisa, support role
