About Us

Martin Personnel was started in 1987 by Verity Martin who was a pioneer in the field of temporary recruitment and, as you can see after almost 30 years, very successfully. In 2007 when Verity was ready for retirement, she sought the expertise of Mark Douglas to pick up where she left off, ensuring that the company would be in good hands. He has continued to make sure that Martin Personnel stands out in the recruitment field by partnering with their clients rather than just being a ‘supplier’. This takes time and requires investment from both parties.

“Our aim is to understand our customers and become their trusted advisers.”

For us, it’s all about employing the right people – our success is dependent on selecting the right person for the job – so we make sure we do that for ourselves as well. We hire the right attitude and character and then train them up with our existing skills and years of experience.

“As the All Blacks say – good people make good All Blacks.”

Mark enjoys the hustle and bustle of the business, there are always changing dynamics that they have to work within. His favourite part of the job is solving problems for his clients. It’s about making a difference to customers, candidates and consultants.

Ask clients what they think of working with Martin Personnel and they enjoy the approachable, real-world people with life experience. There are of course, all the comments about how good looking and intelligent Mark is…

“We are well connected in the Auckland marketplace, so I can help customers with all sorts of things their business might need – just ask.”

Feedback from candidates are similar to our clients – that we treat them as real people, not just a number. We find them work that they want to do with people that they are happy to work with. Often, they see us as their employer because they don’t want to transition into a role with one company. We know many of our temps by name, we know their family situations and their personal goals – it shows that we genuinely care.
