Personnel Placements was founded in 1999 by Wendy Robertson, after returning from the UK where she was a Regional Systems Manager for one of the world’s largest recruitment companies. Wendy was inspired to fill the need Ashburton had for a professional recruitment agency that provided the same, if not better, quality of service and professionalism as a national brand.

The reputation of PPL quickly grew and this presented an opportunity to open a second branch. In 2002 Personnel Placements opened an office in Timaru so that companies and clients in South Canterbury could enjoy the same professional standard of service that was being provided in Ashburton. Since then the business has grown well beyond Wendy’s initial goals.

Wendy is still actively involved in the business, and splits her time between the two branches. The company is continuing to grow, and has implemented initiatives to assist clients and job seekers alike to achieve their goals. The merger with Gundry Contracting in September this year is just another example of this!
