Testimonials

  • Emma Cranstoun, Co-Founder of Scrubbingtons

    Krissy made our recruitment process really easy for us. She took time to really understand what we needed, both from the roles we were recruiting but also the cultural fit within our business as that was really important to us. She shortlisted a great set of candidates, helped us with interview questions and has been invaluable with contracts, employee handbooks and company policies. I would not hesitate in recommending her.

  • Jenny Campbell, JBC Enterprise Limited & Dragons' Den Judge

    It was a pleasure working with Kristina at Nova Search to find my new housekeeper. The process was very smooth, Kristina listened carefully to all my needs in order to short list a number of candidates who met the profile I was looking for. I was impressed with the use of virtual technology in candidates presenting themselves in an online video which enabled me to short list candidates for interview. We are very happy with our new housekeeper who is a perfect fit for our family. I would use Nova Search again and recommend them to others.

  • Stuart Macdonald, Founder of ManiLife

    Krissy is a breath of fresh air. Her level of service is exemplary. We tasked her with finding for a candidate profile that many had said we would never be able to find. In the end she found us two that we would have happily hired and we've ended up with someone I'm sure will be an invaluable addition to the team. Had it not been for Covid 19 the whole process would have been completed in record time too!

  • Sally Preston, Founder, The Kids Food Company Limited

    I have known Kristina for over 20 years, we have used her skills to find a senior member of my management team on a number of occasions. Kristina showed herself to be adaptable and flexible to new sectors (we operate in Food and Retail). She was resourceful in finding a strong short list of candidates, and all we well briefed before I met them. Her style is purposeful and friendly – she takes time to understand the company culture and role dynamics to avoid sending unsuitable candidates to waste my time. Kristina understood this and was honest about suitability. She screened very effectively. I would have no hesitation in recommending Kristina Lushey irrespective of the sector you work in, as she has proven adaptability and professionalism.
