Testimonials

Building strong partnerships based on collaboration, trust and respect

  • Joanne Nugent
    Former General Manger Human Resources, Queensland Sugar Limited

    “What is compelling about Onten is they really deliver. A lot of agencies claim to, but few live up to the promise. The lived experience of the Onten team is more authentic. They really take the time to get to know your business, and you see the direct benefits of that in the results they achieve each time.”

  • Hayden Smith
    Manager Human Resources, EDL

    “Onten are very good at what they do. They headhunt for us because they have such a great network and it is not often they miss. I see them as a great partner. I made the decision years ago to find a trusted partner for key appointments in middle to senior professional roles. Onten have certainly delivered that for us.”

  • Ty Hermans
    Managing Director, Venlo Investments

    “Onten provides the feel of an internal HR team with the bonus of being connected with excellent networks. They are professional, flexible and genuinely care. I have 100% confidence in how they represent our brand.”
