  • ​"Xactly is delighted to be working with Certus. They have been professional and friendly with a fun approach to recruitment, where you really feel like you are important to their business. They helped us understand the differences between hiring in Australia vs the rest of the world and managed to help guide us through the process; as well as operating across global time zones, offering flexibility to interact outside of traditional working hours. They have shown the capability to work across levels, helping us attract Enterprise BDMs, Commercial Account Executives and an SDRs. Cultural fit is of huge importance to us, Justin, Ben and Adam all demonstrated that they clearly understood out culture and the type of people we want to attract to help grow our business.

  • “I wasn’t actively looking for a job when Charlotte from Certus reached out to me for a possible opportunity. Charlotte is a known and reputable Workday recruiter. She was able to explain (and convince) how good the opportunity is for me and my career. I gave it a go and went ahead for an interview. I got the offer in less than a week. The recruitment process was seamless and communication was timely. Overall, I’m very satisfied with how the whole process was carried out and most specially, I’m very happy with the outcome. I believe Charlotte will always have your best interests at heart.”​

  • ​“I wanted to thank you, in addition, for your support. Working with Charlotte Schmidt has been a pleasure, she was hardworking and focused for the duration of the campaign and we couldn't have received the outcome we did without her dedicated and tenacious approach. Charlotte partnered with us, understood the brief and continued to search to find the right skillset within a candidate short market and a tough remuneration range. We are delighted to have our in house WD team now complete.”
