Steve Russo

We have worked with Tom and his staff at Amalgam for several years now. When recruiting it is key to us that we have a contact who communicates regularly, understands the job requirements and the culture of the company. When we required contractors across the Eastern States for a major project they did not shy away and did an amazing job at finding the best available contractors to assist for the 8 month contract. We would recommend Amalgam Recruitment to anyone looking to recruit as they have provided constant reliable candidates for part time, full time, and short term contract works.

We appreciate their dedication to always providing labour for us even at the very last minute – which can be the case more often than not. Tom and Kristy are a pleasure to work with and over the years we’ve built a strong relationship.

Thank you for always providing labour for us even during these tough COVID times!
