  • We highly recommend the team at The Proven Group. We needed a Legal Secretary position filled quite urgently and as Carmel had already met with a number of legal secretaries (whilst previously writing their resumes), she advised us that she had already informally interviewed the candidates she was putting forward, and was confident in her recommendations. After interviewing the candidates, we were excited to appointment one. Thank you for getting the job done so quickly and for having your very own extensive database to choose from as this saved so much time! Well done!

  • Having used recruitment agencies in the past, all being terrible experiences, I vowed to never use one again. However, Carmel at The Proven Group came highly recommended from two very successful businesses in Ballarat, so upon their referral I felt a bit more confident to give it another go. I cannot thank Carmel enough for not only her professionalism, but how efficient she was in putting forward some really top quality candidates. Thank you for not only filling the position so quickly, but for reinstating my confidence and knowing where to turn to when I need another position filled. Great job.

    David Building Industry
  • In the day and age where people are used to feeling like a number, Carmel and the team ensure that they are always highly and personally accessible to our staff and our business. The Proven Group provides a positive experience when we utilise their services and work closely with us to satisfy our Recruitment needs, making our lives so much easier!  

    Chris Banking & Financial Services
  • It has been a pleasure working with Carmel from The Proven Group. It's good to have person who has a professional and positive outlook, and someone I can trust to get the job done! As she has already interviewed the potential candidates she puts forward after completing a comprehensive search of her database, I can be rest assured that every person recommended will be of high quality and exactly who I am looking for. Keep up the great work!  

    Geoff Marketing & Sales Sector
  • We have been looking for an Electronics Engineer for the past 6 months.  Finally I decided to Google and I found The Proven Group. We are a small family based business and I read that they were also a family based business, which then made the decision easy. 48 hours later they found the perfect candidate and I am pleased to say 6 months on he is now a part of our family. Thank you from one family business to another family business.

    Scott Engineering Industry
  • The Proven Group are awesome to work with. They are incredibly organised, flexible in working hours, easy to communicate with, and above all responsive to our specific needs. When we need staff we know who to call.  

    Jenny Manufacturing Industry
  • We came to the decision that we needed to outsource our staffing needs. We were not keen to do so, but thought we would give The Proven Group a go. What a great decision it was to use them. Keep up the great work!

    Tim Insurance Industry
  • I definitely recommend The Proven Group, they are fantastic, all their staff are great, they knew how fussy we were with our vacant position (receptionist) and they really delivered. We could not be happier.

    Bill Real Estate Industry
  • As always, thank you for your prompt and reliable service. As you know we needed the position filled ‘yesterday’ and the efficiency you displayed whilst shortlisting all of the applicants certainly assisted us by you doing the “administrative legwork”. This part of the process (receiving and reading all of the resumes) is soooo time consuming, and time that we did not have. Thank you for allowing us to run our business and do what ‘we do best’, whilst you do what ‘you do best’. I have and will continue to highly recommend your services.

    Carrie Accounting Sector
  • It is always a pleasure working with Carmel from The Proven Group because she is only ever a phone call away and provides outstanding efficient service regardless how big or how small the job is. Her attention to detail and ability to fill the position every time, is a credit to her and her team.

    Brendan Construction Industry
  • Hello Bernadette, Thank you for interviewing our candidates.  Wow the questions you asked certainly attracted the right and true quality of the candidates.  I have been in the Administration Management sector for 20 years and I even learnt some interesting tips!! Thank you for providing such a professional service.

    Terri Administration Sector
  • I did not realise the importance of having an ad strategically written when recruiting.  As you are aware I have been advertising for 5 weeks and I have not received one single quality candidate, yet you wrote the ad for me and within 1 week you found the candidate I have been looking for!!  Thank you very much for your advice, support and professionalism.  I know who to call, the next time we need to fill a position!!!

    Simon Retail Sector
  • Thank you for telephoning all of the candidates (243 in total!) as a process of shortlisting.  You can tell so much from a person's voice and you have saved me hours of time, not to mention the costs of my time.  The summary reports have been fantastic and really shows the snapshot of potential and the not so potential candidates. Thank you for providing such a fuss free and professional service.

    Candice Corporate Sector
  • I could not be happier with the professional and friendly service you provided me! The choice and flexibility of the 4 different packages gave me the option to choose which package was right for me!   Ultimately resulting in me employing the ‘Right person for the job’!  Your impeccable service was second to none, nothing was ever too much trouble and your service was extremely cost effective saving ME a lot of time and money!!! The Proven Group....”We Have Your Staffing Needs Covered”....WOW! You certainly do!  I just cannot Thank you enough! I would not hesitate in recommending your unique service to any Employer!

    Alistair Automotive Industry
  • Our company recently utilised the services of The Proven Group.  It was the first time we had used a recruitment agency as we are a small engineering company based in Melbourne.  The weekly updates we received were fantastic as we were kept informed every step of the way!  The Proven Group found us the perfect candidate and we couldn't be happier!!

    James Engineering Industry
  • I just wanted to say how impressed I was with your professionalism, service and quality of your recruitment services.  We were very happy with the candidate you chose after interviewing them considering the high quality number of applicants.  Well done - Keep up the good work!

    Janice Real Estate Industry
  • We have used various recruitment agencies in the past and none have been close to what you offer!  Your service is unique and very professional.  I really appreciated you contacting every single applicant (in excess of 200) to advise them if they were successful or not!  This saved me hours of time.  We will definitely be utilising your service in the future.

    Anthony Hospitality Industry
  • Thank you for helping me with my job application I was successful in getting an interview & a position! Thank you Kali (Ballarat)  Graduate Nurse Program.

  • I am happy to report that thanks to your help and skills in preparing my resume and other docs I have found new employment and I am currently about to take on a new trade

    I did find your workmanship in creating those documents to be a very high standard and something I would not have been able to achieve on my own.

    And as you will know I recommend your services to my own brother to help him with his employment search.

    Again many thanks to you for your services in helping me find new employment.  Kyle (Ballarat) Tradesperson.

  • I would like to thank you for your wonderful services and to tell you that I’m certain that the resume and cover letters that you assisted me with were the door to a new and exciting future as a midwife. Out of 4 major hospitals in Victoria that I applied to, I was contacted and invited to an interview by 3.

    Yesterday I received the results for my graduate year program and I am pleased to say that I got through to Western Health – Sunshine Hospital.

    Thank you once again for making my resumes and cover letters really showcase who I am. I couldn’t have done it with your professional help!!! I will continue to recommend your wonderful services to everyone I know!

    Thanks once again!
