Our Success Stories

Nick has assisted us in sourcing a number of contract OCEs. I’ve found him and Alchemy’s systems and online time sheeting very easy to deal with. All the candidates that he has presented have been of a high quality and I can trust Nick to know what I’m looking for and his guys to be able to fit into the team well. I would recommend Nick’s services to anyone looking to secure high calibre mining personnel.

Mining Superintendent – BMA Coal

I have worked with Forrest as a colleague and as a client and have always found his work to be of highest standard. Forrest has a lot of experience within recruitment environments and in particular has a high level of knowledge of the Mining and Resources sector.

CS Energy has engaged Alchemy Recruitment on a number of occasions, and in my specific dealings with Nick, I have found him to be most professional and thorough in his research. Nick demonstrates a solid understanding of the mining and resources sector. He is a ‘fountain of knowledge’ in this space and this is most evident in the strong candidates he submits for application. I also note the emphasis he places on quality rather than quantity. Nick is responsive in his approach, he follows up when required (to a satisfactory level) and he has a proven ability to deliver on his promise, in terms of meeting the agreed timeframes and managing our expectations as the client.

People and Culture Advisor, CS Energy

I’ve had the opportunity to work alongside Forrest as well as seek out his services as a supplier. Forrest’s knowledge of mining operations particularly in Queensland Coal, I’ve found to be second to none. It’s this intimate knowledge and understanding that gives Forrest the edge when working on critical positions I need filled for my internal clients’ operations.

Advisor Resourcing – BMA Coal

I wanted to take the time to thank Nick from Alchemy for the high level of professional assistance he has provided me whilst I have been with Downer. I am always grateful to agencies who follow the strict Downer process and work with the internal recruiters for the best candidates and service which we are looking for from a recruitment company.

Forrest assisted me in securing a position at Runge Ltd. During the process Forrest at all times conducted himself in a very professional manner. I always felt that he had my best interests at heart and that he was really interested in my needs for my professional development and career. Forrest communicated to me on a continuous basis and I never had to wonder what the status of my application was.

Principal Consultant – Runge

Over the past year Alchemy has become a valued recruitment partner and have consistently presented high calibre candidates in short time frames for a variety of positions. Some of these have included a senior estimator for our Western Australia operations and a project manager in Queensland. Alchemy deliver cost effective recruitment solutions alongside a high level of industry knowledge and a genuine interest in finding the right candidate for the requirements of the position and the company culture. York Civil understands that quality people make an organisation what it is and Nick from Alchemy was first-rate in the service he provided.
