I had the pleasure of applying for a position though Anna Hazewinkel. She is a well organised and talented recruiter. I was well informed of each stage of the application and interview process. I will recommend Anna to anyone who is pursuing new job opportunities.

All her work is of a very high quality which is a result of her extensive HR and change management experience at both a strategic and operational level. She builds strong relationships with key stakeholders and is the ideal team member, as she is considerate, flexible, engaging, easy to work with and highly competent.

I applied for an Office Administrator role through Recruit safe and received a call from Anna the next day inviting in me for an interview. I was very impressed with how quickly I got a response from Anna, in securing me the job and me starting the position the next day. The role was very enjoyable and perfect for me. It was a pleasure to work with Recruit Safe and I felt very comfortable contacting Anna with any questions I had. I hope to work with Recruit Safe again in the future.

I have worked with many recruitment agencies both as a job seeker and as an employer. What makes you stand out from the rest is your professionalism and your thoroughness.
Laura, RMIT

My name is Tim Conolan, I am the CEO of TLC for kids. We have recently engaged Anna Colella from Recruit Safe to assist us in seeking a Sponsorship Manager for our charity.

During this period, I have found Anna to be very professional, thorough and extremely helpful in every aspect of staff recruitment, from choosing appropriate advertising avenues, guidance for the position description, through to the interview process and ongoing advice.
Tim Conolan, CEO, TLC for kids

Anna, thank you for taking the time to really understand our unique staffing requirements rather than assume that you had the answer straight away as so many recruitment consultants do. Your ability to analyse a situation and make recommendations that we had previously not considered has meant that we now have the perfect person in the critical development role that meets both our budget and organisational need.

I was particularly impressed with you attention to detail, your thorough screening of candidates and your step by step feedback.

By keeping us involved at every stage, you took a genuine partnership approach to not just filling the position but making sure that we had the best HR solution for our growing organisation.
Francesca Manglaviti, CEO, Australian Crohns & Colitis Association (ACCA)

You really listened to what I wanted from my next role. It has been a pleasure working with you.

Thank you for your feedback with the progress of my application, for following up and always returning my phone calls and emails within a timely manner.
Rita, Alloys


I have known Anna for many years and have been associated with Anna as a candidate and colleague. From our first meeting as a candidate I was impressed with Anna's professionalism and expertise and, over time, my respect for her abilities has only increased. Anna is a highly skilled recruitment and human resource practitioner who is able to develop a strong rapport with clients and consistently works to the highest level to meet client needs and demands.

I would like to sincerely thank you for looking after my interests so well. You are the only recruitment consultant who has actively searched for opportunities for me and it is a credit to you for being so helpful and proactive during this process.

I am pleased to provide this testimonial on behalf of Anna.
