Bruce McCowan has been associated and engaged for consultancy services for approximately 2 years with Jobs Australia. His expertise has been utilised extensively by the Board of Directors, working directly with the Chair on many occasions. He has also offered considerable professional advice and consultancy on strategic HR matters to Jobs Australia CEO. On several occasions he has provided independent HR management during recruitment and HR matters. At all times Bruce's integrity has been the most obvious professional attribute in all his undertakings. His respectful approach, together with measured and methodical reasoning on all matters has been appreciated and highly regraded.
Thank you Matthew for securing me a great opportunity and offering your continuous support. A commendable applause for providing a well-organised, highly professional service, also adding a personal touch to the talent acquisition/ recruitment process and follow ups. I would highly recommend deliberatepractice for their professionalism and Matthew for his amazing support.
Through working with the Board, I can attest to Bruce’s technical skills, his excellent communication skills, his political acumen and a positive approach which combines honesty, tenacity, integrity and good humour. He took great care to understand our specific requirements and ensure he met our needs. I would have no hesitation in engaging deliberatepractice for professional advice and/or further consultancy assignments in the future.
It was been a refreshing experience working with Peter and the deliberatepractice team. As a candidate (and HR professional) it was so great to see the true art of HR and talent resourcing is still alive. I felt well supported and their personal approach made it easy to build a rapport with both Peter and my perspective employer.
deliberatepractice is a dedicated HR consultancy who make it their business to know your business. Peter and the team have a strong focus on client service and an ability to build rapport with clients and candidates alike. They are large enough to have access to a range of talented individuals, yet still retain that boutique approach to client servicing. Their professional and collaborative approach has delivered positive outcomes for our business and I have no hesitation in recommending their services.
It would be very rare that I would recommend a consultant so highly such as Peter at deliberatepractice. In the almost 5 years I have known him he is and has been a delight to deal with. Not only does he get to know you on a personal level but he also listens and takes time to understand your needs. He shows integrity and is someone I can trust. I will always look at engaging with Peter as a first point of call. With no doubt, he has changed the world of talent sourcing. Thanks for being such a pleasure to work with and I look forward to working with you in future.
I was introduced to deliberatepractice recently and found Peter to be very professional, personable and astute. It is clear that deliberatepractice is not just a sales focussed recruitment firm, but they really understand what true HR is about. I recently engaged them for a couple of hard-to-fill, Asia-based roles. They took the time to take a detailed brief, and their shortlist of candidates was well-screened and very strong, compared to what we had been able to find through other sources. My experience throughout the process was very positive and I was provided honest and timely updates and responses as needed. I would definitely recommend deliberatepractice for HR recruitment.
Seven Melbourne has enjoyed excellent service delivery from deliberatepractice over the last 3 years. The personalised service and quick response times to our staff needs are what brings us back to their customised and problem specific approach for outplacement, management coaching, workforce and retirement transitional advice. Greg Smith, Managing Partner works closely with the HR team to deliver great results, ensuring a partnership approach within our business.
deliberatepractice are genuine partners to achieve our business goals. The team acts like an extension of our company with our peoples’ success in mind. They collaborate with us to increase the potential of our existing leaders and add depth to our bench strength through new talent.
I have worked with deliberatepractice when heading up the HR department/function in various companies, during significant periods of organisational change. It is a pleasure to partner with a group of people that have empathy and compassion for all stakeholders involved. They easily navigate through the ups and downs of change while having some fun along the way.
